Western Literature

Order Details

Write on each of the following topics not less than 850 words in length. You can use only 3 sources for both the topics below, but two of the sources must be from 1. The Making of the West: Peoples and Cultures, Volume II: Since 1500 (4th edition), Hunt, Lynn, et al. 2. The Norton Anthology of Western Literature, Volume 2 (8th edition),
Lawall, Sarah, ed.

The topics are: 1. The painting by Manet titled “Olympia” in The Making of the West was intended to shock the smug, self-assured sensibilities of the bourgeoisie in Paris at the time. But paintings of nude women are a common subject throughout the history of art. Why is this painting different? To support your response, you might also
google Manet’s painting “The Luncheon on the Grass,” another image that shocked the casual viewer in nineteenth century France.

2. Based on The Future of an Illusion and Civilization and Its Discontents, explain how, in Freud’s view, civilization limits people’s freedom, restricting, for instance, primitive urges like the desires for sex and violence, as a necessary condition of keeping order within a society.
