Here is the second Milton Take Home Examination, due in class on Thursday, May 2nd.
The story of the earth’s creation in “Genesis” is useful to read when reading books 7-8 of Paradise Lost. Google “genesis 1-3″ and read the biblical version. It won’t take long. When you do, note the break in the story telling: the story is told twice. See the break displayed here.
The rule for formatting titles is, “if the work is a full-length work, italicize the title; it the work is a piece of a larger whole, place the title in quotation marks.” So even though Milton’s great epic is a poem, the title should be italicized, not placed in quotation marks.
Thus, Paradise Lost.
Here it is, the first take-home examination. Despite the date written on the take home itself, the due date is February 19th. Enjoy.
