She’s suddenly here, taking us unawares,

Oft in my waking dreams do I
Live o’er again that happy hour,
When midway on the mount I lay
Beside the ruin’d tower.

To my mind, the only sensible reason for reading anything is because we enjoy it or hope to enjoy it. But it is my strongest belief about reading is that one should read only what one likes and because one likes it. I am talking, of course, about our private reading. When we are studying special subjects or working for examinations we obviously have to read a good deal that we would not choose to read in other circumstances.

It may seem odd to have to insist that one should only read because one liked it: but people read for such a peculiar variety of reasons. There are people who read a book, not because they enjoy the book, but because they want to be able to say that they have read it. They want to be ‘in the swim.’ There are people who get themselves down to read a book because they think it will do them good. They make a duty of it, a kind of penance. Sometimes they go so far as to set themselves so many pages at a time.

B.A Part 1 English Honours Paper II Questions PDF

1. Explain, with reference to the context, the following: (8x 4 = 32)

(a) Drink to me only with thine eyes, And I will pledge with mine;
Or leave a kiss but in the cup , And I’ll not look for wine.


The river glideth at his own sweet will :
Dear God! the very houses seem asleep;
And all that mighty heart is lying still!

(b) Ah, love, let us be true
To one another! for the world, which seems
To lie before us like a land of dreams,
So various, so beautiful, so new,
Hath really neither joy, nor love, nor light,
Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for pain;


We look before and after, And pine for what is not;
Our sincerest laughter, With some pain is fraught;
Our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thought.

(c) Besides, his goodly fabric fills the eye
And seems designed for the thoughtless majesty,
Thoughtless as monarch oaks that shade the plain
And spread, in solemn state, supinely reign.


Methinks I see the new Arion sail,
The lute still trembling underneath thy nail
As thy well-sharpened thumb from shore to shore
The treble speaks for fear, the basses roar.

(d) And down she knelt for heaven’s grace and boon
Rose-bloom fell on her hands, together prest
And on her silver cross soft amethyst,
And on her hair glory like a saint.


Full of this whim was thoughtful Madeline :
The music yearning like a God in pain,
She scarcely heard : her maiden eyes divine,
Fix’d on the floor, saw many a sweeping train pass by.

Last Minute Tips for Scoring High in BA English Hons. Exams

Here we have shared some Last Minute Tips For Scoring High In BA English Honours Paper Exams:

  1. Context and Content are both King: Questions such as ‘Mac Flecknoe’  and ‘The Eve of St. Agnes’ can be open-ended. Therefore, it is difficult to write answers that are pinpointed critical analysis without digression. But, you have to stick to the context and focus on writing quality content.
  2. Quality Wins Over Quantity: English literature students believe that writing answers in 2000 words will help them score high in BA English Hons Papers. Let me tell you that this is never the case with any professor checking your answer sheets.
    Hence, if you can write sublime and quality answers within 400 words you could easily expect a high score.
  3. Relate and Correlate: If you have gone through background readings, socio-economic contexts, writers’ backgrounds, and other related themes, genres, movements, etc. Then you can use all these in your answer writing. A University professor checking your answer sheet would love to see a well-researched answer.
  4. Practice Critical Thinking, Reading, and Writing: Well this is not a last-minute tip per se. However, every BA English Hons. Students should have these skills. It helps you to write original answers and score high in exams (any exam you name it). Therefore, practice these skills, and you will find it easy to score high every time.
  5. Cleanliness is next to Godliness: By this, I mean your handwriting. Make sure you write cleanly without making lots of cuts and lines. Stay within alignment and margins, and focus on writing cleanly instead of beautifying it. No professor will appreciate your cursive writing skills and give you extra marks for it.
  6. Check Your Facts: Most students make mistakes in dates and names. Ensure that your facts are accurate. It is difficult to memorize it, but it can be done in a structured way during your preparations.
  7. Time Management: Often student wastes their precious time on main questions. That eventually leaves them with little time for other low marks questions. Manage your time effectively and use it optimally. If you believe some questions may take less time then complete those first. And then use your major portion of time for high marks questions. It can be another way around as well.
