PostSubject: Any questions about the final?   Mon Jun 14, 2010 6:50 am

Hello my dear students,

This is where I am going to receive all your questions regarding the final exam. This is because I want everyone to benefit from each other's questions and answers.

First of all, two students sent me an e-mail asking me about how to apply the characteristics of the sonnet or ballad to a poem? I already answered them but I thought you might all have the same question. First of all, I will never ask you to write a whole essay about the characteristics. If I do ask about it, then it will be part of the essay. For example, I will say discuss the idea or theme of ........ and apply the characteristics of the sonnet or ballad to the poem. Your answer should be a whole essay mainly about the idea or theme or whatever I asked about (analyze the whole poem in reference to what I asked for) and in the final body (before the conclusion) write about the characteristics of the ballad or sonnet (depending on what I ask for). Do not write about the characteristics in general. Write about the characteristics that you find in the poem.

If you have any further questions, post them here. You can use this space to study together under my supervision as well. I'll be here with you until tomorrow midnight. 😉

Hi Deemah,

As I told you in the last lecture I will give you the definition and you will write the term. You are not allowed to make any spelling mistakes.

I really have a problem dividing the essay Rolling Eyes

Thanks for your continuous support!

Hello Mrs.Ohoud,
If you ask us to write an essay about a particular poem, will you include the whole poem with the question or just the title?
and can I write only one long body paragraph?

Hello,

I will answer your questions one by one.

Nouf,

As I said before, you will have two questions: 1- write the literary terms of the following definitions (15 terms = 30 marks). Each term is out of 2. If you make any spelling mistake in the term you will lose half the mark; 2- write an essay ( I will give you two questions and you have to choose one of them) = 30 marks.

Ebtisam,

There are different ways for dividing your essay and it depends on the question and your ideas. The important thing is that you don't write about more than one main idea in each paragraph. So, you can divide your body paragraphs according to your main ideas or each body could be about a stanza, etc.

Sarah,9

I will not write the title or the name of the poet, but you will have the whole poem in front of you.

Areej,

Of course whatever the question is about, you have to analyze the whole poem but in reference to what I asked for in the question.

Reem,

I posted the characteristics of the sonnt in (Intro. to poetry topics).

Felwah,

If I ask about irony of course you have to tell me what kind of irony is in the poem and explain it.

Maha,

In the intro. you should write a GENERAL idea about the whole poem. What is the whole poem (not each stanza) about in 1 or 2 sentences). The intro should not include any details at all.

Huda,

I answered the same Q. before. Check my previous reply.

Sarah,

I'm soooo sorry, I forgot the second part of your Q. Embarassed. Anyway, You can not write one long body paragraph because that means you are either writing about one idea only or that you are writing about more than one main idea in the same body para. Each main idea (along with its supporting sentences, examples, evidence, etc.) should be in a seperate body para.

Maha,

In the conclusion you should rephrase your thesis statement (write it in different words) and write about your personal opinion. Of course, it depends on your ideas in your essay and what you personally think about the theme, the message of the poem, the poet's use of literary devices and figures of speech, or the effect the poem has on you, etc.

Hanady,

You can explain all the connotations that comes to your mind if you have the time. Of course, not each word but the key words of the poem and the ones that are related to the theme of the poem. If you are confused then just focus on the connotations that we explained in class. Of course, it is your job to know what they are.


P.S: You are allowed to share notes and answer each other's questions here if you want.

It is my sincere wish that all of you do super well in your final exam tomorrow flower
