I. Short answers (worth 2 points a piece). Please define the following terms, and indicate where in the passages that follow they occur. Please record answers in order in the Blue Book. 1. Dramatic Irony Dramatic irony involves a situation in a narrative when the audience or reader shares knowledge with the author that the character does not know. All scenes with the Duke as Friar, for example: Part II, 1. 2. Allusion Reference to another text within literature Part II, 8 or 11. [as always, one correct answer will do] 3. Pharmakos: Scapegoat / Pharmakos: From Aristotle: A person who is destroyed/driven out in a purgation of evil that restores order and stability to the state. Part II, 6 4. Vice Figure Allegorical embodiment of evil in medieval morality plays – A tempter and a corrupter, but also often a comical or appealing figure who confides his nefarious plans to the audience. Part II, 5 5. Lex talionis : The so-called “Law of Retaliation,” which refers to the biblical lines “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.” The law of equivalent retribution (an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, etc.); in the Old Testament, it serves to limit revenge by ensuring proportional retaliation, but the New Testament directly repudiates it (citing the doctrine of an eye for an eye, and advising instead to “turn the other cheek”) Part II, 8 6. Chiasmus Rhetorical form where words conform to an ABBA or an ABCCBA structure, as in Part II, 12 7. James I, Trew Law of Free Monarchies (1603) A work about Government by James I [okay, but an excellent answer would describe more, or say that it was issued as (and even in a sense before) the new king took the English throne; Measure for Measure seen as responding to it.] Part II, 3 is James I. 8. Divine Right Theory that Kings had a special right endowed by God. Part II, 3; could be 7, 11. 9.
