The New American Renaissance?
The history of American Architecture and the Arts--The American Renaissance--was the period from 1876 to 1917.
The American Renaissance came of age as an expression of a national spirit.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, a German writer and statesman, once said: "The decline of literature indicates the decline of a nation."
Some critics say authors failed to address major political issues during this period.
A bicentennial baby, I was born 100 years after the start of The American Renaissance.
Next year will be 2017. 100 years after The American Renaissance ended.
What does this mean?
I'm not sure.
But I have a feeling we need a new movement in the United States, if not the world. A return to basics. A return to what is real. A hunger for fairness and justice. A celebration of the honest, hard-working men and women who help others and are glad to be alive.
