II: How does Hamilton reflect the artistic values of the Romantic era?
III: How does Hamilton reflect the artistic values of 21st century America?
Write a 1000+ word response in answering each of these questions. Write the question at
the top of each section, also label the Introduction and Conclusion. In answering the third
question, you are allowed to give your opinion and use “I” statements.
You are limited to using the hard copy version of Hamilton the Revolution, the Hamilton cast

TAKE THEM TO BLACKBOARD
You will need to buy the hard copy of Hamilton the Revolution
– you can’t use any electronic copy
– I check footnotes, so everyone has to use the same book and electronic versions
have different page numbers
You’ll need to buy the Hamilton Cast Album
– When you come to a song in the book, read the lyrics, then listen to the song
You will want to read the book and listen to the songs in the first half of the semester
– So that by the time we cover the Neoclassic and Romantic eras in the 2nd half, you’ll
already be familiar with the book
– And able to apply what you learn in writing the paper
26
The Neoclassic era came about due to archaeology becoming a science, and excavations
at sites like Herculaneum (begun 1738) and Pompeii (begun extensively in 1808) yielding
classical artifacts that could serve as artistic models.
Artists themselves were motivated to be classically correct; and, as at no other time
previously, they had access to examples that made close imitation a real possibility.
THE HEAD IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE HEART
HEAD OVER HEART
REASON OVER EMOTION

THE ROMANTIC ERA spans from the beginning of the French Revolution to the beginning
of Realism
ITS PURPOSE WAS TO EXPRESS FEELING
– ONE CAN HAVE FEELINGS ABOUT ALL THINGS
NOW THE HEART IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE HEAD

THIS IS THE MOST COMMON FORM OF PLAGIARISM I SEE
A STUDENT WILL REWORD WRITTEN INFORMATION FROM THE BOOK OR LECTURE
NOTES IN A SENTENCE WITHOUT FOOTNOTING IT
IT’S -5 POINTS PER LINE FOR EVERY SENTENCE LIKE THIS
There are two forms of plagiarism charges at JU – warnings and citations.
Warnings are for minor assignments, citations are for major ones.
Because the Hamilton paper makes up 1/3 of your grade, if you commit plagiarism
on it, it’s a citation level offense.
Citations for plagiarism stay on your transcript.

Hamilton
Aaron Burr, Sir
« “Impressionist” was originally a form of mockery by the
press reflecting the feeling that their paintings were
sloppy and half-finished.
« In 1868, Monet was bankrupt and creditors seized his
paintings. He threw himself into the Seine, but failed to
drown.
« Edgar Degas was such a shy and solitary person that he
never married.
« True love is like the appearance of ghosts: everyone
talks about it, but few have seen it.
Hamilton Paper
Section I: How does Hamilton reflect the values of the
Neoclassic era?
Section II: How does Hamilton reflect the values of the
Romantic era?
Section III: How does Hamilton reflect the artistic
values of 21st century America?
Neoclassic
1764-1825
Neoclassic Elements
« The mind and reason dominate
« Revolutionary fervor – American & French Revolutions
« Belief in Progress – optimism, the quest for freedom,
liberation from oppression, equality, and recognition of basic
human rights
« The aims of Greek and Roman heroes coincided with the
18th-century fight against absolute monarchies
« The self-sacrificing heroes of classical history made people
aware of the egocentricity and social irresponsibility of the
courtly class
« The more direct and austere lifestyle of the ancients stood in
strong contrast to the pretension and extravagance of the
ruling aristocracy (Baroque & Rococo eras)
1789-1850
French Revolution to Realism
Romantic Characteristics
« Individualism
« Imagination – the mysterious and supernatural
« Historicism – the Middle Ages and exotic places
« Hero – anti-social, misunderstood and doomed
« Nature – wild & untamed; especially storms & night
« The Ugly & Grotesque to the Sublime & Beautiful
« Appeal to Emotion instead of Reason
« Freedom and the Rights of Man
