Why is realism said to be a reaction to romanticism?


Answer 1

Answer: Unlike the romantics, realism chose to use real-life situation over idealism.

Explanation: Romanticism was a product of the Enlightened Era, which is portrayed as more dramatic and glorified. However, with the rise of the Industrial and Commercial Revolutions, social and political changes created the Realism, a movement which aims to depict what thing objectively.

Answer 2
Answer: (Credits to Quora)
Because during the Age of Enlightenment humanity emphasized nature and emotions, more subjective to the essence of being as far as love, life, transcendence, more celestial, abstract & extraordinary. Realist rejected these views and wished to depict the more harsh side of life, the inevitable suffering of the everyday struggle. In retrospect the aim of art is truth so this style was more becoming of the human experience then that which was exaggerated through romanticism a far more clerical time and our art reflected the times but like everything else in the universe we evolved.

"a modest proposal" what does the title suggest


It suggests a satirical and simple proposal to the problem starving Ireland faced: the lack of food to feed the people.

Of course, the entire modest proposal was that parents eat and sell their children as food and the idea was meant as satire, meaning to be considered with a grain of salt and not seriously (kind of like a really dark joke).

''Modest'' means that the proposal was obvious and simple in the eyes of the author Jonathan Swift but not necessarily in the eyes of others. ''Proposal'' means the general answer to the problem Swift was answering.

Hope this helps! :)

The Sphinx posed a riddle to all travelers on their way to Thebes, devouring all who could not solve the riddle. What riddle of life might the Sphinx pose today? What is humanity what is it’s destiny or purpose? Does today’s individual know the answers?


The riddle of the Sphinx, according to greek mythology, was a question that all the travelers who want to access to Thebes needed to solve. The nature of the riddle varies with tradition, but almost all versions converged as follows: "What has four legs in the morning, two legs in the afternoon, and three legs in the evening?". Oedipus, the mythical greek king of Thebes was able to solve it, the answer was "the man", as we aged we crawl, walk, and in our final days we use a cane. The riddle was a reference to the effects that time have on people, and the imminent mortality fate that we all share. The riddle of life that the Sphinx could have today, would probably make allusion to the high consumptions of drugs and supplements that man do in order to stay healthy as we face the effects of aging.

The meaning of life, or the answer to the question: "What is the meaning of life?", pertains to the significance of living or existence in general. Many other related questions include: "Why are we here?", "What is life all about?", or "What is the purpose of existence?" There have been many proposed answers to these questions from many different cultural and ideological backgrounds. The search for life's meaning has produced much philosophical, scientific, theological, and metaphysical speculation throughout history. Different people and cultures believe different things for the answer to this question.

The meaning of life as we perceive it is derived from philosophical and religious contemplation of, and scientific inquiries about existence, social ties, consciousness, and happiness. Many other issues are also involved, such as symbolic meaning, ontology, value, purpose, ethics, good and evil, free will, the existence of one or multiple gods, conceptions of God, the soul, and the afterlife. Scientific contributions focus primarily on describing related empirical facts about the universe, exploring the context and parameters concerning the "how" of life. Science also studies and can provide recommendations for the pursuit of well-being and a related conception of morality. An alternative, humanistic approach poses the question, "What is the meaning of my life?"
