Hi!
Can you please tell me what the exam was like? Did she tell you to choose a topic, or did she just offer one from the list? Do you have to know the analyses well, or is it enough if you have read the works? How long is the exam? Well, I hope you can answer my many questions. :D :?


you have to pick a topic of the paper slips on the table. the topics practicly cover the semester's topics and the readings. there are two people before you so you have time to prepare. The exam itself takes from about 15-30 minutes. You have to present all info you are able to connected to the title of your topic (e.g. animal tales in Canterbury Tales, Troilus and Creyside or Old English Prose esp. King Alfred, these were the ones that I saw), than she asks some questions in order to check whether you've read the material and that's it. She's very very nice, so don't be afraid of her nor of the exam, but be prepared!

I'm wondering if someone out there could offer me a little info. I lost my syllabus for the medieval lit lecture. My question is (even though I attended the lectures) what were the titles/labels given to each week on the syllabus e.g. I don't know, "week 1: old english poetry" "week 2: beowulf" etc etc. I've got the reading list so I know all about the works. Just need this little itty-bitty info.
Be good to get the info soon as the exam is on Tuesday.

Thanks heaps in advance.


She said that she wouldn't use the syllabus but the works themselves (ie canterbury tales might cover two topics but lyric poetry of OE one all together) therefore it doesn't really matter what the syllabus says. More likely sinse she didn't follow the syllabus as you could experience...

Anyways, the syllabus (if it helps) was the following:

Quote:
week 1: anthology pp. 5-12, Old English Prose

week 2: Anthology: The Wanderer, The Seafarer, The Dream of the Rood, Charms, Riddles

week 3: Anthology: Beowulf, The Battle of Maldon, The Battle of Brunanburh

week 4: Anthology pp. 157-163: Middle English Lyric poetry

week 5: Anthology: The Owl and the Nightingale, Sir Orfeo, Dame Siriz

week 6: Anthology: Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

week 7: Chaucer: Troilus and Criseyde

week 8: Chaucer: Canterbury Tales (I)

week 9: Chaucer: Canterbury Tales (II)

week 10: Anthology: Piers Plowman

week 11: Anthology: Noah's Flood, The Second Sheperd's Play, Everyman

note: some two or three lectures were canceled.


See you tomorrow!
