ATS 1295: World Literature and Culture Studies

Assignment 1. Lecturer: Dr Pier Paolo Frassinelli.

Words: 750 (for the critical essay). Deadline for submission: 1 April 2011.


1. Critical essay:

Write a detailed analysis of two of the sonnets that we discussed in class. You must select two sonnets by two different authors (Petrarch, Shakespeare, St. Vincent Millay) and compare them: consider the themes and ideas of the sonnets, the elements that embody these themes, and the means by which they are conveyed. Pay attention to style, tone, imagery, rhythm, and structure.

2. Creative writing exercise:

Write a sonnet in which you respond to one of the sonnets that we read in class: you should relate to the theme and language of the sonnet and impersonate the person to whom it is addressed. You are encouraged to use contemporary English, but you should follow the poetic and stylistic conventions associated with the sonnet.
