The Voices and Texts of Authority
This assignment relates to Book 1 (chapter 3) of the course and carries 20 marks. There are two parts to the question and both must be answered together in an essay form in around 1200 words.
"One of the notable feature of Homeric poetry, important to the theme of authority, is the Homeric similes---" Discuss how the poet has used various devices to add authority with specific reference to Book 22 (lines 166 - 265)
Also, choose a stanza of at least eight lines from the work of any one poet of your choice, quote the lines and explain how this poet has used various devices to add beauty and value to his poem.
In answering this question:
Discuss briefly the concept of authority in literature and discuss how works of different authors become authoritative with clear illustration/ examples. (6 points)
Read closely chapter 3 of Book 1 ‘Homer’s Iliad: Book 22 lines 166 to 265, and reflect upon the various devices used by Homer that give this master piece "authority". (6 points)
Spend enough time to read poetry by different authors, and choose the poet who impressed you with the use of different devices. Introduce and explain the poem briefly, quote the stanza which must not be less than eight lines and analyze/explain how various devices have been used by the poet in the lines of your choice. (6 points)
Conclude the essay on why and how poetry is an important tool of expression. (2 points)
The essay cannot be in one single paragraph and is not restricted to four. Ensure you acknowledge all the sources.
