IGNOU BEGC-112 (July 2022 - January 2023) Assignment Questions

SECTION A I. Explain the following passages with reference to the context. 1. “For, now that it was all over, truce signed, and the dead buried, he had, especially in the evening, these sudden thunder-claps of fear. He could not feel. As he opened the door of the room where the Italian girls sat making hats, he could see them; could hear them; they were rubbing wires among coloured beads in saucers; they were turning buckram shapes this way and that; the table was all strewn with feathers, spangles, silks, ribbons; scissors were rapping on the table; but something failed him; he could not feel. Still, scissors rapping, girls laughing, hats being made protected him; he was assured of safety; he had a refuge.” 2. “But no, he would not give in. Turning sharply, he walked towards the city’s gold phosphorescence. His fists were shut, his mouth set fast. He would not take that direction, to the darkness, to follow her. He walked towards the faintly humming, glowing town, quickly.” 3. “Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity.” 4. “Our researchers into Public Opinion are content That he held the proper opinions for the time of year; When there was peace, he was for peace: when there was war, he went. He was married and added five children to the population, Which our Eugenist says was the right number for a parent of his generation. And our teachers report that he never interfered with their education. Was he free? Was he happy? The question is absurd: Had anything been wrong, we should certainly have heard.” SECTION B II. Write short notes on the following: A. Characteristics of modernism and post-modernism. B. The “Stream of Consciousness Technique” and early twentieth century British fiction. C. Modern British drama of the early twentieth century. D. The major themes and concerns of the novel Mrs. Dalloway. III. Write short essays on the following: A. “The early years of the twentieth century were significant for the movement for women’s rights.” Discuss how the literary texts that you have studied in this course, reflect the developments in the contemporary movement for women’s rights. B. Explain the title of the poem “I think continually of those who are truly great”. SECTION C IV. Discuss the central theme of the poem “Journey of the Magi” and comment on the symbolism in the poem.
