Monday, December 10, 2:30-4:30 in Thomson 125.
PLEASE BRING AN EXAMINATION BOOK
PART I (60%). Quotations, IDs, etc. Short paragraph discussing the significance/relevance of various quotations (drawn mostly from readings in C&F) or IDs (e.g., Ara Pacis). You'll have considerable choice here. Please note: 'short paragraph'. Not a sentence. Multiple sentences -- not one sentence -- doth a paragraph make.
PART II (35%). Essay. Come prepared to write an essay in which you compare and contrast the appearance or use of one or more themes we (= you) have observed in esp. the second half of the course (for example, prophecy, past vs. present (and/or future), peace/love vs. war, fertility, death vs. birth/renewal (or just death or just birth/renewal), personal/family relationships, etc.) in at least TWO of the following areas: literature, art, architecture, religion, law, politics. The best answers to this question will be specific in citing examples and demonstrate some familiarity with material that was not necessarily discussed or discussed in depth in class but was covered in your readings. In short: show us what you've read, not simply what you've heard. You may NOT use prepared notes or texts for this, but you should give thought to what you are going to write about in advance.
PART III (5%). Mystery essay.
