Hi nyana. I have a British English midterm due 3/22/17 by 11pm. Its two short answers and an essay. You must choose two of the short answer questions. The easiest to choose would probably be Beowulf, Sir Orfeo, and Bisclavret and Yonec. So please choose two out of questions 2 (Sir Orfeo), 3 (Beowulf), and 5 (Bisclavret and Yonec). Thats the first part. The second part is the essay. You can pick to do the second one on Julian of Norwich and Margery Kempe. I will attach both of those readings for those as well. And feel free to read online about the readings if you dont understand them completely just do not plagiarize please.

A. Short answer (Pick three). 1. Drawing on our readings and discussion of the Showings , explain (with specific examples) how Julian of Norwich fits the definition of a medieval woman who practiced affective piety. 2. Drawing on our readings and discussion of Sir Orfeo , explain how the garden from which Heurodis is kidnapped serves as a liminal space in the poem. 3. With reference to Beowulf , explain (and provide evidence for) the reciprocal relationship between a kin g and his warriors, and explain what happens when this relationship breaks down. 4. Drawing on the Towneley Last Judgment (the translation I gave you is fine), paint a picture of the “un -ideal woman.” In this answer you must do the following: provide specifi c examples of what the “un -ideal woman” does that earns her a trip to hell, and then explain why her behaviors are considered sinful. 5. Looking at Bisclavret and Yonec , provide evidence for your agreement or disagreement with the following statement: “Marie de France’s lais argue that marriage is a relationship that should be based on love and trust, but is instead based on jealousy and deceit.” 6. With reference specific ally and only to the description of the Pardoner in the General Prologue (that is, the short passage in which the Pardoner’s appearance is described, not the long prologue to his own tale), explain how The Pardoner’s appearance is symbolic or representativ e of his moral corruption. B. Essay (Pick one). 1. Imagine that you are the playwright who composed the Towneley Play of the Last Judgment . Develop a thesis that answers, and an argument that provides direct textual evidence for, the following question: “Does the Pardoner belong in Hell, and why?” You must take into account not only specific actions that the Pardoner commits, but the reasons why , from the perspective of the Towneley playwright, his actions should (or should not) place him in Hell. 2. Imagine you are Julian of Norwich meeting Margery Kempe for the first time. Develop a thesis that addresses, and an argument that provides direct textual evidence for, the following question: “How and why is pain so important to Julian and Margery?” You must include both the Showings and the Book in your discussion of how pain shapes Julian’s and Margery’s experiences, and explain why, theologicall y speaking, pain is so central to their visions and their lives.
