The questions below ask you to provide essay answers. Your answers should be between 50-100 words for each question (the length of your answers depends on your ability to answer clearly and concisely).
You are asked to provide textual examples to support your answers. Use texts that I assigned and that appear on my syllabus. Use different texts for each question; once you use a text as an example to answer one question, you may not use it again to answer any other questions. Each lai/story by Marie de France can be considered as a single text, meaning you can write about more than one.
Each question is worth up to 20 points for a total of 100 points.
Texts read in class that you can use to answer the questions:
– de France, Marie. The Lais of Marie de France. Penguin Classics, 1999. (978-0140447590).
– Duras, Marguerite. The Lover. Pantheon, 1998. (9780375700521)
– Plato on Love. Ed. C.D.C. Reeve. Hacket, 2006. (978-0872207882)
– Pablo Neruda’s Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair: focus, in
particular, on: “Body of a Woman,” “We Have Lost Even,” “I Have
Gone Marking,” “Every Day You Play”
– Rilke’s “Sonnets to Orpheus,” Part I: 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 8, 25
– Rilke’s “Sonnets to Orpheus,” Part II: 4, 8, 13, 14, 23, 24, 28, 29
