All this was a long time ago, I remember,
And I would do it again, but set down.
This set down were led all that way for Birth or Death
There was a Birth, certainly,
We had evidence and no doubt. I had seen birth and death,
But had thought they were different; this birth was hard and bitter agony for us, like death, our death.
We returned to our places, these kingdoms,
But no longer at ease here, in the old dispensation,
With an alien people clutching their gods
I should be glad of another death.
From T.S, Eloit’s “Journey of the Magi”
The Magi are no longer at ease because
34. Mr. Johnson, by Joyce Cary, is an interesting novel for the reason that

36. Romeo and Juliet
Juliet: O serpent heart, hid with a flowering face! Did ever dragon keep so fair a cave?
Beautiful tyrant: Fiend angelical
Dove-feathered raven! Wolfish-ravening lamb!
Despised substance of divinest show! A dammed saint, an honourable villain!
From Romeo and Juliet
Juliet is referring in the above passage to
Maria: If you desire the spleen, and will laugh yourself into stitches, follow-me. Yond gull Malvolio is turned heathen, a very renegado; for there is no Christian, that means to be saved by believing rightly, can ever believe such impossible passages of grossness. He’s in yellow stockings.
Sir Toby: And cross – gartered?
Maria: Most villainously; like a pedant that keeps a school in the church. I have dogged him, like his murderer. He does obey every point of the letter that I dropped to betray him: he does smile his face into more lines than is in the new map with the augmentation of the indies: you have not seen such a thing as ‘tis. I can hardly forbear hurling things at him. I know my lady will strike him: if she does, he’ll smile and take it for a great favour.
From Twelfth Night
Which of the following statements reflects best the statement revealed above?
38. New Year’s Eve Midnight
Now the bells are tolling
A year is dead
And my heart is slowly beating
The Nunc Dimittis
To all my hopes and mute
Yeaning of a year
And ghosts hover round
Dream beyond dream
Mingling with the dying
Bell-sounds fading into memories
Like rain drops falling into a river.
And now the bells are chiming
A year is born.
And my heart – bell is ringing in a dawn
But its shrouded things I see dimly stride
On heart – canopied parts to a riverside
The mood of the above poem is
39. In the fiction “No Longer at Ease” by Chinua Achebe, Obiajulu Okonkwo’s fall can be traced to the fact that
“All’s over, Sweet”, he cried
To the wife, thus guised; for the young page was she.
“Tis as we hoped and said’t would be.
He never guessed …. we mount the ride
To where our love can reign uneyed.
He’s clay, and we are free”.
From Thomas Hardy’s, “The Duel”
The theme of this poem is
Your hand is heavy, upon my brow,
I bear no heart mercuric like the clouds, to dare
Exacerbation from your subtle plough.
Woman as calm, on the sea’s crescent
I saw your jealous eye quench the seas
Fluorescence, dance on the pulse incessant.
Of the waves And I stood, drained
Submitting like the sands, blood and brine
Coursing to the roots; Night, you rained.
Serrated shadows through dank leaves
Till bathed in warm suffusion of your dappled calls
Sensations pained me, faceless, silent as night thieves.
Hide me now, when night children haunt the earth
I must hear none! These misted calls will yet undo me;
Naked, unbidden, at Night’s muted birth.
“Night” by Wole Soyinka
In the poem above, Soyinka
42. “The Sea eats our lands” by Kwesi Brew
Here stood our ancestral home
The crumbling wall marks the spot
Here a sheep was led to slaughter
To appease the gods and atone
For faults which our destiny
Has blossomed into crimes
There my cursed father once stood
And shouted to us, his children
To come back from our play
To our evening meal and sleep
The clouds were thickening in the red sky
At night had charmed
A black power into the pounding waves.
Here once lay Keta
Now her golden girls
Erode into the arms of strange towns.
