Midterm Study Guide: Text 1   Beowulf  Volume A: Pgs. 41­108  Suggested Reading: (lines 18­25) "Shield had fathered a famous son: Beow's name was known through the north. And a young prince must be prudent like that, giving freely while his father lives so that afterward in age when fighting starts steadfast companions will stand by him and hold the line. Behavior that's admired is the path to power among people everywhere." ­ Exam worthy: This section emphasizes the reinforced bond of kinship of the men through loyalty among others and a pride in shared culture. This connection is  reinforced through the leader's generosity and in return, respect and support for  this leader. A proper relationship leads to building close bonds amongst one  another, pride in their heritage, and cherishing memories of their past. ­ Themes: Kinship (and its associated culture, loyalty, and respect) ­ Paper topics: Kinship: relationship between leader and fellow men 2   Sir Gawain and the Green Knight  Volume A: 186­238 3.  Geoffrey Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales  Volume A: 243­342 4   Christopher Marlowe  “The Passionate Shepherd to His Love” “Come live with me and be my love, And we will all the pleasures prove, That Valleys, groves, hills, and fields, Woods, or steepy mountain yields. And we will sit upon the Rocks, Seeing the Shepherds feed their flocks, By shallow Rivers to whose falls Melodious birds sing Madrigals. And I will make thee beds of Roses And a thousand fragrant posies, A cap of flowers, and a kirtle Embroidered all with leaves of Myrtle; A gown made of the finest wool Which from our pretty Lambs we pull; Fair lined slippers for the cold, With buckles of the purest gold; A belt of straw and Ivy buds, With Coral clasps and Amber studs: And if these pleasures may thee move, Come live with me, and be my love. The Shepherds’ Swains shall dance and sing For thy delight each May­morning: If these delights thy mind may move, Then live with me, and be my love” (poetryfoundation). 5   Sir Walter Raleigh  “The Nymph’s Reply to the Shepherd” “If all the world and love were young,  And truth in every Shepherd’s tongue,  These pretty pleasures might me move,  To live with thee, and be thy love.  Time drives the flocks from field to fold,  When Rivers rage and Rocks grow cold,  And Philomel becometh dumb,  The rest complains of cares to come.  The flowers do fade, and wanton fields,  To wayward winter reckoning yields,  A honey tongue, a heart of gall,  Is fancy’s spring, but sorrow’s fall.  Thy gowns, thy shoes, thy beds of Roses,  Thy cap, thy kirtle, and thy posies  Soon break, soon wither, soon forgotten:  In folly ripe, in reason rotten.  Thy belt of straw and Ivy buds,  The Coral clasps and amber studs,  All these in me no means can move  To come to thee and be thy love.  But could youth last, and love still breed,  Had joys no date, nor age no need,  Then these delights my mind might move  To live with thee, and be thy love” (poetryfoundation). 6   Andrew Marvel  “To His Coy Mistress” “Had we but world enough and time,  This coyness, lady, were no crime.  We would sit down, and think which way  To walk, and pass our long love’s day.  Thou by the Indian Ganges’ side  Shouldst rubies find; I by the tide  Of Humber would complain. I would  Love you ten years before the flood,  And you should, if you please, refuse  Till the conversion of the Jews.  My vegetable love should grow  Vaster than empires and more slow;  An hundred years should go to praise  Thine eyes, and on thy forehead gaze;  Two hundred to adore each breast,  But thirty thousand to the rest;  An age at least to every part,  And the last age should show your heart.  For, lady, you deserve this state,  Nor would I love at lower rate.         But at my back I always hear  Time’s wingèd chariot hurrying near;  And yonder all before us lie  Deserts of vast eternity.  Thy beauty shall no more be found;  Nor, in thy marble vault, shall sound  My echoing song; then worms shall try  That long­preserved virginity,  And your quaint honour turn to dust,  And into ashes all my lust;  The grave’s a fine and private place,  But none, I think, do there embrace.         Now therefore, while the youthful hue  Sits on thy skin like morning dew,  And while thy willing soul transpires  At every pore with instant fires,  Now let us sport us while we may,  And now, like amorous birds of prey,  Rather at once our time devour  Than languish in his slow­chapped power.  Let us roll all our strength and all  Our sweetness up into one ball,  And tear our pleasures with rough strife  Through the iron gates of life:  Thus, though we cannot make our sun  Stand still, yet we will make him run” (poetryfoundation). 7.  Edmund Spenser’s the Faerie Queene  Volume B: 775­934 8   Sir Thomas Wyatt  “I Find No Peace” “I find no peace, and all my war is done.  I fear and hope. I burn and freeze like ice.  I fly above the wind, yet can I not arise;  And nought I have, and all the world I season.  That loseth nor locketh holdeth me in prison  And holdeth me not—yet can I scape no wise—  Nor letteth me live nor die at my device,  And yet of death it giveth me occasion.  Without eyen I see, and without tongue I plain.  I desire to perish, and yet I ask health.  I love another, and thus I hate myself.  I feed me in sorrow and laugh in all my pain;  Likewise displeaseth me both life and death,  And my delight is causer of this strife” (poetryfoundation). 9   Sir Phillip Sidney  Astrophil and Stella  Sonnet 47 “What, have I thus betrayed my liberty?  Can those black beams such burning marks engrave  In my free side? or am I born a slave,  Whose neck becomes such yoke of tyranny?  Or want I sense to feel my misery?  Or sprite, disdain of such disdain to have?  Who for long faith, though daily help I crave,  May get no alms but scorn of beggary.  Virtue, awake! Beauty but beauty is;  I may, I must, I can, I will, I do  Leave following that which it is gain to miss.  Let her go. Soft, but here she comes. Go to,  Unkind, I love you not! O me, that eye  Doth make my heart give to my tongue the lie” (poetryfoundation). 10. William Shakespeare  “Sonnet 3” – (note: you will not have to know exact sonnet #) “Look in thy glass and tell the face thou viewest,  Now is the time that face should form another,  Whose fresh repair if now thou not renewest,  Thou dost beguile the world, unbless some mother.  For where is she so fair whose uneared womb  Disdains the tillage of thy husbandry?  Or who is he so fond will be the tomb  Of his self­love, to stop posterity?  Thou art thy mother’s glass, and she in thee  Calls back the lovely April of her prime;  So thou through windows of thine age shalt see,  Despite of wrinkles, this thy golden time.      But if thou live rememb’red not to be,      Die single, and thine image dies with thee” (poetryfoundation).  “Sonnet 18” “Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?  Thou art more lovely and more temperate:  Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,  And summer’s lease hath all too short a date;  Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,  And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;  And every fair from fair sometime declines,  By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm'd; But thy eternal summer shall not fade,  Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st;  Nor shall death brag thou wander’st in his shade,  When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st:     So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,     So long lives this, and this gives life to thee” (poetryfoundation).  “Sonnet 20” “A woman’s face with nature’s own hand painted  Hast thou, the master­mistress of my passion;  A woman’s gentle heart, but not acquainted  With shifting change as is false women’s fashion;  An eye more bright than theirs, less false in rolling,  Gilding the object whereupon it gazeth;  A man in hue, all hues in his controlling,  Which steals men’s eyes and women’s souls amazeth.  And for a woman wert thou first created,  Till nature as she wrought thee fell a­doting,  And by addition me of thee defeated  By adding one thing to my purpose nothing.        But since she pricked thee out for women's pleasure,        Mine be thy love and thy love’s use their treasure” (poetryfoundation).  “Sonnet 130” “My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;  Coral is far more red than her lips' red;  If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;  If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.  I have seen roses damasked, red and white,  But no such roses see I in her cheeks;  And in some perfumes is there more delight  Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.  I love to hear her speak, yet well I know  That music hath a far more pleasing sound;  I grant I never saw a goddess go;  My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground.     And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare     As any she belied with false compare” (poetryfoundation).
