3.59 Exam Part 2 Each question should have an answer of at least 5 sentences. Each question is worth 20 points. There are 3 questions total. ***PLEASE NOTE ANYTHING WITH A 90% SIMILARITY RATING OR ABOVE WILL NOT BE READ, WILL BE GIVEN A ZERO, AND YOU WILL NEED TO RESUBMIT*** 1. Compare and contrast the following two poems from Blake. One appeared in his work called Songs of Innocence the other appeared in his work titled Songs of Experience. Consider: subject, theme, rhyme scheme, literary devices, and tone. Songs of Innocence Version: “The Chimney Sweeper” When my mother died I was very young, And my father sold me while yet my tongue Could scarcely cry “’weep! ‘weep! ‘weep!” So your chimneys I sweep & in soot I sleep. There’s little Tom Dacre, who cried when his head That curl’d like a lambs back, was shav’d, so I said, “Hush, Tom! Never mind it, for when your head’s bare, You know that the soot cannot spoil your white hair.” And so he was quiet, & that very night, As Tom was a-sleeping he had such a sight! That thousands of sweepers, Dick, Joe, Ned, & Jack, Were all of them lock’d up in coffins black; And by came an Angel who had a bright key, And he open’d the coffins & set them all free; Then down a green plain, leaping, laughing they run, And wash in a river and shine in the Sun. Then naked & white, all their bags left behind, They rise upon clouds, and sport in the wind. And the Angel told Tom, if he’d be a good boy, He’d have God for his father & never want joy. And so Tom awoke; and we rose in the dark And got with our bags & our brushes to work. Tho’ the morning was cold, Tom was happy & warm; So if all do their duty, they need not fear harm. 2. Your answer here: Songs of Experience Version: “The Chimney Sweeper” A little black thing among the snow Crying “ ‘weep, ‘weep,” in notes of woe! “Where are thy father & mother? Say?” “They are both gone up to the church to pray. “Because I was happy upon the heath, And smil’d among the winter’s snow; They clothed me in the clothes of death, And taught me to sing the notes of woe. “And because I am happy, & dance & sing, They think they have done me no injury, And are gone to praise God & his Priest & King, Who make up a heaven of our misery.” 2. Read the following poem by Keats and discuss how it fits into the Romantic ideals. Be sure to use examples from the text. “Ode on a Grecian Urn” 1 Thou still unravish’d bride of quietness, Thou foster-child of silence and slow time, Sylvan historian, who canst thus express A flowery tale more sweetly than our rhyme: What leaf-fring’d legend haunts about thy shape Of deities or mortals, or of both, In Tempe or the dales of Arcady? What men or gods are these? What maidens loth? What mad pursuit? What struggle to escape? What pipes and timbrels? What wild ecstasy? 2 Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard Are sweeter; therefore, ye soft pipes, play on; Not to the sensual ear, but, more endear’d, Pipe to the spirit ditties of no tone: Fair youth, beneath the trees, thou canst not leave Thy song, nor ever can those trees be bare; Bold lover, never, never canst thou kiss, Though winning near the goal—yet, do not grieve; She cannot fade, though thou hast not thy bliss, For ever wilt thou love, and she be fair! 3 Ah, happy, happy boughs! that cannot shed Your leaves, nor ever bid the spring adieu; And, happy melodist, unwearied, For ever piping songs for ever new; More happy love! more happy, happy love! For ever warm and still to be enjoy’d, For ever panting, and for ever young; All breathing human passion far above, That leaves a heart high-sorrowful and cloy’d, A burning forehead, and a parching tongue. 4 Who are these coming to the sacrifice? To what green altar, O mysterious priest, Lead’st thou that heifer lowing at the skies, And all her silken flanks with garlands drest? What little town by river or sea-shore, Or mountain-built with peaceful citadel, Is emptied of this folk, this pious morn? And, little town, thy streets for evermore Will silent be; and not a soul to tell Why thou art desolate, can e’er return. 5 O Attic shape! Fair attitude! with brede Of marble men and maidens overwrought, With forest branches and the trodden weed; Thou, silent form, dost tease us out of thought As doth eternity: Cold Pastoral! When old age shall this generation waste, Thou shalt remain, in midst of woe Than ours, a friend of man, to whom thou say’st, Your answer here: “Beauty is truth, truth beauty,”—that is all Ye know on earth and all ye need to know. 3. 3. Read the following poem by Shelley and decide what he is saying to Wordsworth through the poem. Defend your opinion with examples from the text. “To Wordsworth” Poet of Nature, thou hast wept to know That things depart which may never return: Childhood and youth, friendship and love’s first glow, Have fled like sweet dreams, leaving thee to mourn. These common woes I feel. One loss is mine Which thou too feel’st, yet I alone deplore. Thou wert as a lone star, whose light did shine On some frail bark in winter’s midnight roar: Above the blind and battling multitude: In honoured poverty they voice did weave Songs consecrate to truth and liberty, — Deserting these, thou leavest me to grieve, Thus having been, that thou shouldst cease to be. 4.

1. Compare and contrast the following two poems from Blake. One appeared in his work called Songs of
Innocence the other appeared in his work titled Songs of Experience. Consider: subject, theme, rhyme
scheme, literary devices, and tone.
Songs of Innocence Version:
“The Chimney Sweeper”
When my mother died I was very young,
And my father sold me while yet my tongue
Could scarcely cry “’weep! ‘weep! ‘weep!”
So your chimneys I sweep & in soot I sleep.
There’s little Tom Dacre, who cried when his head
That curl’d like a lambs back, was shav’d, so I said,
“Hush, Tom! Never mind it, for when your head’s
bare,
You know that the soot cannot spoil your white hair.”
And so he was quiet, & that very night,
As Tom was a-sleeping he had such a sight!
That thousands of sweepers, Dick, Joe, Ned, & Jack,
Were all of them lock’d up in coffins black;
And by came an Angel who had a bright key,
And he open’d the coffins & set them all free;
Then down a green plain, leaping, laughing they run,
And wash in a river and shine in the Sun.
Then naked & white, all their bags left behind,
They rise upon clouds, and sport in the wind.
And the Angel told Tom, if he’d be a good boy,
He’d have God for his father & never want joy.
And so Tom awoke; and we rose in the dark
And got with our bags & our brushes to work.
Tho’ the morning was cold, Tom was happy & warm;
So if all do their duty, they n...
