The final exam will have three essays:
1. If you could instantly memorize one of the six titles we read this year, which one would you memorize? Give FIVE substantial reasons largely based on the structure and themes of the work to support your answer.
2. I will choose a poem from the blog for you to write a two page essay on. This essay must have a clear thesis statement, and examine the relationship between the poem's form--imagery, diction, tone--and its meaning.
3. Choose one of the six books we read which you believe has the most literary value from the perspective of its style. After explaining this style, its major characteristics, examine how it relates to the meaning of the work as a whole.
