9. YEAR 2004
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) He says that leaves are old and that for flowers
Mid-summer is to spring as one to ten. 
(ii) Burningly it came on me all at once
This was the place! Those two hills on the light, 
Crouched like two bulls locked horn in horn in fight;
(iii) When the Night doth meet the Noon
In a dark conspiracy
To banish Ever from her sky. 
(iv) In the faith that looks through the death
In years that bring the philosophic mind
(v) Holy, divine, good amiable, or sweet!
How art thou lost! how on a sudden lost! 
Defaced, deflower'd, and now to death devote!
(vi) That were an ignoring and shame beneath
This downfall; since by fate, the strength of gods, 
And this Empyreal substance, cannot fail. 
2. One of the beauties of 'Macbeth' by Shakespeare lies in the intensity of debate between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. Elaborate. 
3. Is Lady Macbeth evil incarnate or is there any redeeming feature in her character? 
4. Illusion permeates the atmosphere of 'The Glass Menagerie' by Tennessee William as theme as well as symbol. Elaborate. 
5. Draw a character sketch of Tom Wingfield in the 'The Glass Menagerie'. 
6. Bring out the beauties of Milton's style as for as you find them in the poems included in your course. 
7. Wordsworth has fairly succeeded in capturing the feelings, the sensations and the desires of childhood in his 'Ode on Intimations and Immortality'. Elaborate. 
8. How far can we call Keats' 'Ode to Fancy' his representative poem? 
9. Bring out Robert Browning's optimism with the help of any two poems included in your course. 
10. Where does the magic that captures our attention lie in Robert Frost's 'Road Not Taken'?
