Q. No. 6.
Beckett called his play “Waiting for Godot” a “tragicomedy”. Discuss.

Q. No. 7. “The poem juxtaposes apparently unrelated speaking voices, symbolism, myth and allusion to bewildering effect. As a result, its meanings are ambiguous and the fragments do not comprise an ordered whole. But precisely this, the poem illustrates, is the human condition.” Consider The Wasteland in the light of this description.

Q. No. 8.
Santiago is considered by many readers to be a tragic hero, in that his greatest strength- his Pride-leads to his eventual downfall. Discuss the role of pride in Santiago’s plight in Old Man and The Sea.
