Part I: Short Term Identification  

You will identify and discuss 4 (out of 7) concepts, terms, and/or literary figures. You must provide an example in your response if it is appropriate. Feel free to draw upon the passages on this exam for your examples. You will use your blue book or green book for this section of the exam. (20 points)

Part I: Passage Identification

Identify the author (2 points), title (2 points) of 5 (out of 7) passages. All information (first and last names) must be spelled correctly to receive full credit. (20 points)

Part II: Short Essays

After you note author and title, you will be asked to respond in essay form to a few short questions about 3 of the identified passages.

In addition to addressing the text itself, you may be asked to employ some of the the literary terms that you have learned so far this semester. A list of terms can be found below but look for it to be finalized after we finish our discussion of Romantic Poetry on February 4th.  (60 points).

The questions will vary from passage to passage, but you should keep in mind that your answers should demonstrate your specific knowledge of a particular work, as well as your general knowledge of eighteenth-century and Romantic literature. It may be the case that you will be asked to draw connections across the two periods.

Support your assertions in your short responses with references to the passage in question, as well as other pertinent material.

Among other things, you should not neglect significant images, sound devices, metaphors, and/or thematic links to other passages from the same work or other pertinent works.
