John Skelton was a pillar of stereotype for the type of art and hard work that was put into the renaissance. John Skelton lived a life of promise and politics, he achieved many great things in the poetry world and many person achievements, and finally he has greatly impacted the poetry world since the 1500’s. I feel like this man embodies what people could have done to have had a lasting impact on the world. John Skelton’s name comes with and heir of ambiguity when it comes to his early life. There is little we know about this fabulous man’s early life but we know he did have a great latter half of his life.
There have been many famous American authors; some better than others, but do we know who these people really are? In the case of F. Scott Fitzgerald we saw what he wanted us to see; for instance, a successful career, expensive jewelry and the nice cars. F. Scott Fitzgerald began to write at a young age and he is known for being a brilliant author and with a lavish lifestyle and great success, but his gilded life was often tarnished with alcoholism, overspending, and a sense of failure. "Frances Scott Key Fitzgerald was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, on September 24, 1896" (1 University of South Carolina). His parents were Edward Fitzgerald and Mollie McQuillan Fitzgerald (1 University of South Carolina).
Fitzgerald is considered a literary genius and also lived a very interesting life. Fitzgerald was born on September 24, 1896 and died on December 21, 1950 in Hollywood, California.

For early schooling Fitzgerald attended St. Paul Academy from 1908-1910 and the Newman School from 1911-1913.

Lorenzo de Medici was one of the most influential figures in this era due to his unorthodox politics as well as his generous contributions to the world of art. Because of these two themes, Lorenzo was the main proponent that helped start the Renaissance, and influenced Italian life thereafter. Lorenzo was born into the aristocratic Medici family on January 1st, 1449 and at an early age was trained for power. He rose to become the ruler of Florence, after his father Piero died prematurely, assuming the title Prince of Florence. At first, he shared power with his younger brother Giuliano.
After his rise to power in 1434, his patronage brings much work to the city's painters, sculptors and architects.

After Lorenzo’s premature death, his eldest son Piero succeeded him. After only two years in power, he was forced out of the city. Piero’s younger brother Giovanni was the reason for the Medici family to able to return to Florence.
Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) The greatest Italian poet and one of the most important writers of European literature. Dante is best known for the epic poem COMMEDIA, c. 1310-14, later named LA DIVINA COMMEDIA. It has profoundly affected not only the religious imagination but all subsequent allegorical creation of imaginary worlds in literature. Dante spent much of his life traveling from one city to another. This had perhaps more to do with the restless times than his wandering character or fixation on the Odyssey.

Eventually, between his mother and father da Vinci had a total of 17 half brothers and sisters (“Renaissance Man,” n.d.). Recognizing his artistic potential, in 1466 da Vinci’s father sent him to begin his apprenticeship under Andrea di Cione known as Verrocchio. Verrocchio was one of the most successful artist of his time, and Verrocchio’s workshop was at the heart of the intellectual streams in Florence.
