MEG-01: BRITISH POETRY ASSIGNMENT Programme: MEG Max. Marks: 100 Ast code: MEG-01/TMA/2017-18 Dear Student, In a conventional class your teacher would have discussed your assignment with you, pointed out what made a good essay and what a bad one. We have done exactly this in Unit 52 of the British Poetry (MEG-01) course. Read it carefully and discuss it with your counsellor and class-fellows at the Study Centre. Thereafter decide upon a topic, i.e. a period or literary group in the history of British poetry. You may, if you wish, select a topic from the list given in 52.2.1 (p. 70) in Block X. Alternatively, you could write on a British poet of your choice. You may write on a poet discussed in the units, i.e. on the syllabus, or even a poet we have not discussed in detail such as Robert Burns, G.M. Hopkins, R.S. Thomas, Ted Hughes or Seamus Heaney. You may have heard some of our lectures on William Blake, The Movement, Philip Larkin and Ted Hughes on the EduSat. They may now be available on e-gyankosh on have yet another choice. Write an essay on a famous poem in English literature. Having decided upon your topic, do your research and then read section 36.5 in Unit 36 in Block VIII for a model essay and a format for presentation. You may learn how to present your term paper/sessional essay from 36.5. You must not quote from unacknowledged sources. To sum up, write an essay on a period or a literary group in British poetry or a British poet or a British poem in about 3000 words on the model provided in 36.5 (in unit 36). The full marks for the essay is 100. We look forward to reading your sessional essay. Sincerely yours Teache
