11. YEAR 2006
Attempt FIVE questions in all. Question No. 1 is COMPULSORY and attempt TWO questions from each section. All questions carry equal marks.
1. Explain with reference to the context any THREE of the following: 
(i) .... O, fairest of creations, last and best of all 
God's works;
(ii) ... And I have felt 
A presence that disturbs me with joy
Of elevated thoughts; a sense sublime ....
(iii) Two roads, diverged in a wood and I, 
I took the one less traveled by 
And that has made all the difference. 
(iv) That's my Duchess painted on the wall
Looking as if she were alive; I call
That piece of wonder, now:
(v) Ever let the fancy roam
Pleasure never is at home:
(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. Write a note on the murder scene of King Duncan. 
3. Banquo was less ambitious. Why?

5. Draw a character sketch of Tom Wingfield in 'The Glass Menagerie' 
6. Discuss Milton as a poet of religious temperament. 
7. Wordsworth is a poet of childhood. Discuss with reference to his 'Ode on Intimations of Immortality'.
