10. YEAR 2005
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) "Should God create another Eve, and I 
Another rib afford, yet loss of thee
Would never from any heart..."
(ii) "Earth has not anything to show more fair
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
A sight so touching in its majesty..." 
(iii) At a touch sweet pleasure melteth
Like to bubbles when rain pelteth
(iv) Some say the world will end in fire, 
Some say in ice, 
From what I've tested of desire
I hold with those who favour fire. 
(v) And a voice less loud, thro its joys and fears, 
Than the two hearts beating each to each!
(vi) "Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player, 
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage, 
And then is heard no more."
2. What is tragic flaw in Macbeth's character? How far does it contribute to his tragedy? 
3. "The opening scenes of Shakespeare's plays are always important from dramatic point of view". Discuss with reference to Macbeth. 
4. Does the action of the Glass Menagerie consist mainly of inward or outward events? 
5. Write a note on T.T. William's art of characterization. 
6. Write a note on Browning's optimism. 
7. Bring out the elements of modernity in Frost's poetry. 
8. Write a critical appreciation of the poem 'Meg Merrilies'.
