Thank you very much for this post. from where the mcqs from 2011 onwards will be found?
Yes, he was Byron who woke one fine morning and found himself famous. Some observations. A winter's tale is? in one paper the answer was given dramatic monologue and in another as comedy.
paper 2009 paper1: aestheticism theory is given by walter pater, in earlier two papers oscar wilde was the given answer. which one is the correct answer?
TS Eliot and George Eliot cant be contemporary writers as George was victorian and TS was modern. George died in 1880 and TS was born in 1888. so, correct ans should be none of these.
2009 paper2: (xi) The earliest play written by Shakespeare according to Oxford Shakespeare 1988 is:
I have read somewhere that it's The Taming of the Shrew. Kindly confirm it as well.
paper 2, 2009
(xx) When Leontes discovers the identity of Perdita in ‘The Winter’s Tale’ is an example of:
isn't it epiphany? which means revelation?
