Q. No. 2.

Q. No. 3.
Discuss in detail the issues built up by Shaw in Pygmalion and show how these work in terms of theatrical technique in the play?

Q. No. 4.
What is the significance, if any of the order in which Gulliver’s journeys take place? How does each adventure build on the previous one?

Q. No. 5.
The writer describes marriage as the “business” of Mrs Bennet’s life at the end of chapter one. What effect does the “business of marriage” have on female relationship in Pride and Prejudice.


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.
