Write concise, well-supported responses to each question. Don't get bogged down by re-reading the selections during the exam. You should know them well enough by now that you are able to respond in some fashion to what follows. If you need to look at the text, go ahead, but do so quickly just to refresh your memory. You have two hours for the exam. You may use the backside if necessary. The basis of Sartor Resartus is Thomas Carlyle's hostility to what he considered the soul- destroying forces abroad in his age. The shams of civilized life are the decorated robes with which the world conceals its soul. The divine principle is hidden. His purpose is to whisk away this robe to reveal the divinity of God. Those who deny God and who have no faith in the spirit, give 'the Everlasting NO' to life; those who accept God say the Everlasting YEA.' Reading Carlyle today is no easy task, partly due to the stilted language he prefers, and partly to the metaphorical style of his clothes imagery. Yet, his assertion that all people must choose to confront the divinity of God or face what to Carlyle was the horror of nihilism still has relevance for the modern reader who may ponder the very same thing. Explain in your own words this relevance. Education, to John Henry Newman, was a term that ought to mean more than a passive acceptance of facts, data, and statistics. He had a particular horror at the thought of a society whose knowledge base consisted exclusively of those whose learning was a function of how rapidly they could disgorge on command a flow of previously memorized data bits. What, specifically, is the ideal of education according to Newman? 3 Thomas Hardy's poem, “Ah, Are You Digging on My Grave?” dramatizes the conflict between a dead woman and all of the people she imagines, or hopes, that would be digging on her grave, now that she has died. What is ironic about this poem? Such an idyllic retreat as William Butler Yeats describes in “The Lake Isle of Innisfree” is one that everyone dreams of from time to time, as Yeats did on busy London streets when he conceived the idea for the poem. According to this poem, what is idyllic about this retreat? In “A Prayer for My Daughter,” William Butler Yeats reveals his deep thoughts about his daughter while she is asleep during a stormy night. He is concerned for his daughter's safety and the fear of his inability to protect her from the dangers of the future. What are the dangers from which he prays he might shield his daughter? 2 What is Tennyson talking about in the following lines taken from the ending of "Ulysses”? Some work of noble note, may yet be done, .. Though much is taken, much abides; and though We are not now that strength which in old days Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts, Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield. Matthew Arnold's "Dover Beach" is quite obviously a melancholic poem. What exactly is the poet melancholy about and how does that melancholy tie into the following closing lines? And we are here as on a darkling plain Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight, Where ignorant armies clash by night." From the poet's vantage in Gerard Manley Hopkins' Spring and Fall: to a young child,” he intimates that Margaret knows the source of her sorrow. According to the poem, what is the source of her sorrow? Pay particular attention to the closing lines: It is the blight man was born for, It is Margaret you mourn for. 7 Of Wuthering Heights, one critic wrote: “It is a stunning novel, frightening, inexorable, unsettling, filled with unbridled passion that makes one cringe. Even if you do not like it, you should read it at least once--and those who do like it will return to it again and again.” Regardless of your own reactions to the novel, defend the critic's position, above, that “Even if you do not like it, you should read it at least once.” Why?

1. Sartor resartus comes from Thomas Carlyle’s in which he has a strong belief to the things
that destroy the soul of a true believer. He states that for the civilized people who have
believes usually hide their divine and keep it by themselves. Thomas knows that divine
should not be exposed for it’s a personal issue. People who have the believe that there is
no God entirely say NO to the eternal life while the true believers who know that God
exists usually say YES since they know that there is eternal life.
