First discussion question
Please respond to each of the following questions, using on line sources and the textbook for your response:
1. Cite several lines from a Romantic poet/poem in our text and then find a landscape painting by Constable or Turner from this time period you think might illustrate those lines. Consider poems from Keats, Shelley, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Bryon, or William Blake.
2. Who is the Person of the Week for week four? Look over the list below of Romantic poets and writers and then tell us which one was the most important, in your opinion, and why as part of your original post. Your choices are Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Keats, Shelley, or Byron. Also, consider the contributions of Mary Shelley, writer of the original book called Frankenstein and Mary Godwin, an advocate for women’s rights. While some worked together (Wordsworth and Coleridge, Shelley and Byron, as well as Shelley and his wife, Mary), and some wrote alone (Keats and Blake–but Blake did work with his wife on his engravings that accompanied his poetry), each was noteworthy and changed the way poetry (and fiction) was written. Several were so famous that they were poetry “rock stars.”
For thousands of years, up to the 20th century, the land of Palestine was a homeland for Christians, Jews, and Muslims. In the 20th century, the British got involved in the Middle East in several ways, culminating in the attempt to make Palestine a “homeland” for European Jews. Before you respond to this week’s discussion questions, visit and review the ProCon.org Website about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict at http://israelipalestinian.procon.org/. It is one of the most thorough, unbiased, and detailed sites on the subject.
- Hypothesize why one might feel hopeful about the future of the conflict. If there is no reason to feel hopeful, explain why.
- Based on your readings in Roskin and on your familiarity with current events, speculate on the probable future of the dispute. Be sure to address different points than covered in your first response.
- Review the results of WW1 and discuss how it affected the Middle East. What Role did Lawrence of Arabia play in WW1?
- What was the Sykes-Picot Agreement?
