PAST PAPER B - YEAR 2001
6. YEAR 2001
Attempt FIVE questions in all including Question No. 1 which is COMPULSORY and TWO questions from each section. All questions carry equal marks.
1. Explain with reference to the context any THREE of the following:
(i) "This even handed justice
Commends the ingredience of your poisoned chalice
To our lips".
(ii) "Steep that knits up the raveled sleeve of care,
The death of each day's life, sore labour's bath,
Balm of hurt minds, great natures second course,
Chief nourisher in life's feast."
(iii) "For I have learned
To look on nature, not as in the hour
Of thoughtless youth; but hearing often times
The still, sad music of humanity."
(iv) "Towards which Time leads me, and the will of Heaven,
All is, if grace to use it so,
As ever in my great task master's eye."
(v) "And sometimes like a gleaner thou dost keep steady
Thy laden head across a book;
Or by a cider-press, with patient look
Thou watchest the last ooing hour by hours."
(vi) "Shall change, shall become first a peace out of pain,
Then a light, they breast,
Thou soul of my soul; I shall clasp thee again,
And with God be the rest!"
