Answer all questions in this assignment.
SECTION A
I Explain the following passages with reference to the context.
10×4=40
1. “I have no spur
To prick the sides of my intent, but only
Vaulting ambition, which o’erleaps itself
And falls on th’ other.”
2. “Out, damned spot: out I say! One, Two: Why then ’tis time
to do’t. Hell is murky. Fie, My Lord, fie! A soldier, and
affear’d? What need we fear who knows it, when none can
call our power to accompt”?
3. “He did it like an operatic tenor—a regular handsome fellow, with
flashing eyes and lovely moustache, shouting a war-cry and charging
like Don Quixote at the windmills. We nearly burst with laughter at
him; but when the sergeant ran up as white as a sheet, and told us
they’d sent us the wrong cartridges, and that we couldn’t fire a shot
for the next ten minutes, we laughed at the other side of mouths.”
4. “The old order changeth, yielding place to new,
And God fulfils himself in many ways,
Lest one good custom should corrupt the world.
Comfort thyself: what comfort is in me?
I have lived my life, and that which I have done
May He within himself make pure!”
