Dear Students:

Write short essays (each no less than 2 pages long) on three of the following topics for your midterm paper to be turned in on November 21. Remember to write each short essay in accordance to the principles of unity, coherence, consistence, development and organization.

1. Summarize the chapter "The Romantic Period" on pp. 1-22 in the textbook.
2. Analyze the poem by William Blake "The Little Black Boy" in terms of irony.
3. Summarize Mary Wollstonecraft's "A Vindication of the Rights of Woman" and then write a response of yours to a certain point you find interesting or disputable in the work.
4. Analyze William Wordsworth's "Tintern Abbey" in terms of the "myth of nature".
5. Give a thematic analysis of Samuel Coleridge's poem "Kubla Khan".

With my best wishes,

Fei-Fei Wu
