Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]


IV. Topic Discussion(20 points in all, 10 for each)
Write no less than 150 words on each of the following topics in English in the corresponding space on the answer sheet.

49. Please elaborate Wordsworth’s theory of poetry, taking examples from the poems you have learned to support your ideas.

A. Poetry originates from “emotion recollected in tranquility”, (take “ I wandered lonely as a cloud” as example)
B. He maintained that the scenes and events of everyday life and the speech of ordinary people were the raw material of which poetry could and should be made.(take “The solitary reaper”as example)

50. A Rose for Emily is one of Faulkner’s short stories. Discuss the character of Emily Grierson and how this character is depicted.

A. Emily Grierson is a symbol of old values, standing for tradition, duty and past glory. She is an eccentric spinster who refuses to accept the passage of time, or the inevitable change and loss that accompanies it.
B. As a descendant of the Southern aristocracy, Emily is typical of those in Faulkner’s Yoknapatwapha stories who are the symbols of the Old South but the prisoner of the past.

Examples from the novel:
1. Dominated by her father’s rigid ideas of social status, she can’t get married during her life time.
2. She carries her head high in dignity as the last Grierson though the whole community believes that she has fallen
3. She pays no tax and buys poison but offers no explanation
4. She refuses to cooperate with modernization in the postal service
5. Barricaded in her house, Emily has frozen the past to protest her dreams
6. In her relationship with her sweetheart, she demonstrates the deformed personality and abnormality.
