Question description

5 Questions from  Books:The Norton Anthology of World Literature, vols. A, B, C., 3rd ed., Martin Puchner, general editor (ISBN 9780393933659)(If you need the Article, I can send to you)

Tips: You must write sensible, clear and grammatically correct answers. Most of these questions will require a substantial paragraph or two as an answer, but please do not write more than 200 words for any of your answers (this paragraph contains exactly 100 words). When you cite evidence from one of our selections in the textbook or supplemental readings, you’ll need to use proper documentation form. You should also use correct title form when you refer to any of these works by its title, but you don’t need to give your own titles to the answers you write.

1. Show how Li Bo’s “Drinking Alone with the Moon” answers the definition of a lyric by citing evidence in it of the lyric features of subjectivity, emotion, imagination. You should not include brevity and musicality.

2. In what way does Shakespeare’s “Sonnet 130: My mistress’s eyes are nothing like the sun” satirize Petrarchan conventions and in what way does it uphold them?

3. Show three ways that Sophocles’ Oedipus the King follows rules laid out by Aristotle in the selections from The Poetics that you read.

4. How does Sophocles’ Oedipus the King reflect the aesthetics of the Classical Age?

5. What two medieval works best demonstrate the memento mori motif?

6. Show an example of the grotesque in one work read thus far.

7. Why is Petrarch, who lived 1304-1375, considered a figure of the Renaissance while Villon, who lived considerably later—around 1431-1463, is considered a figure of the earlier Middle Ages?
