EN 206 Problem Set #2 1. Which term best describes Blake’s social status? a. aristocratic landowner b. upper-class professional c. skilled artisan d. industrial laborer skilled artisan 2.The speaker of “The Chimney Sweeper” [Songs of Innocence] refers to Tom Dacre’s hair as “curl’d like a lamb’s.” In what ways might little Tom be like a lamb? Tom is very young and innocent still, like a lamb 3.Blake uses the word “appall” in “Holy Thursday” [Songs of Experience] (16) and “London” (10). Look the word up in the Oxford English Dictionary (OED) online at oed.com (if you’re off campus, you can access the OED through the library’s website: (http:// www.lib.ua.edu/#/databases?page=1&search=oed)). Expand the section for etymology; consider the relation to “pall.” What does “appall” likely mean in one or both of these passages? What might it also mean? 4.In what year was the first edition of Lyrical Ballads published? With whom did Wordsworth collaborate on the first edition? In what year was the second edition published? 1798 // Samuel Coleridge // 1800 5.In the first stanza of “WeAre Seven,” the poem’s speaker asks of a little child, “What should it know of death?” Setting aside for the moment the oddity of referring to a child as “it,” what is the difference between asking what should it know and asking what could it know? *please reword this for you own assignment* Ideally a child should not know of death, at least we would hope. But in any situation a child could have experienced a close death and be forced to create their own definition of it. In “We are Seven”, this little girl knows that her siblings are dead yet she sees her situation much more innocently than an adult would. Even though her brother and sister are gone, she still feels they are with her.
