  • The Restoration 
  • By: Leonela Rhon Medina
  • The Restoration period began in 1660 with the restoration of the monarchies under King Charles II. It covers his whole reign, and ends along with his brother's (James II) reign in 1688.
  • During this era, most writers were writing about politics.  
  • I should write about Charles II's illegitimate children.
  • Satire was commonly used to attack one's enemies (either political or personal).
  • John Dryden 
  • Because of the intellectual nature of the period, there was a big interest in literary theory.
  • Literature must be realistic and imitate nature to satisfy the reason.
  • Dryden was the first literary critic.
  • It should also rhyme.
  • I'm very interested in science, specially in the anatomy on the Continent.
  • Since Charles II was fond on science, the court developed the same interest; and so, the scientific age had begun.
  • There wasn't yet a distinction between philosophy and science; they were seen as one.
  • I think, therefore, I am.
  • During this era, Descartes began to doubt the existence of everything.
