Unit 2: Seventeenth-Century Europe
2(second homework)—-write a one-page paper, What was Louis XIV’s conception of absolutism? Please be sure to cite your sources.
3) (third one )——some of the best portrayals/recreations of Tokugawa Japan can be found in the films of Akira Kurosawa (1910-1999), the great Japanese director. I can heartily recommend his Seven Samurai (1954) or Kagemusha (1980) as capturing the complexities of early modern Japan. Consider watching either of these films for extra credit. In a one-page paper, comment upon the historical accuracy of the film that you have watched.
