Modernism and Beyond - Final Exam

BBL 5106 MODERNISM AND BEYOND FINAL EXAMINATION SECOND SEMESTER 2008/2009 6 April 2009 8.00 p.m. – 10.00 p.m. Answer only one question. Length of essay: 1500-2000 words Questions 1. ‘The most controversial aspect of the modern movement was, and remains, its rejection of tradition, both in organization, and in the immediate experience of the work. This dismissal of tradition also involved the rejection of conventional expectations: hence modernism often stresses freedom of expression, experimentation, radicalism, and primitivism.’ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modernism). Illustrate the statement above by discussing two or more novels that have been covered in this course. 2. ‘Until now . . . we have heard only of the duty which society imposes in order to exist, which means that to be truthful is to use the customary, hence edifyingly expressed metaphors; we have heard only of the duty to lie in accordance with firm conventions, to lie herd-like in a style binding for all.’ (Friedrich Nietzsche, ‘On Truth and Lie in an Extra-Moral Sense’.) Explore the sense of alienation and isolation in two or more Modernist novels that have been covered in this course. 3. 'Faith is a myth and beliefs shift like mists on the shore; thoughts vanish; words, once pronounced, die.' Joseph Conrad, 'Letter to Cunninghame Graham' 14th January 1898. Discuss the scepticism about the efficacy of belief and / or language in two or more Modernist novels that have been covered in this course. 4. Discuss the relationship between sexuality and death, or freedom and constraint, in two or more Modernist works. 5. Examine how the ‘New Woman’ is represented by two or more Modernist writers. GOOD LUCK
