2.3.4 Test (TST): Sins and Crimes Test English IV Sem 1 Points Possible: 45 Name: Amber Astran Date: 1. Short-response prompt (15 points) Read the excerpts from "The Monk's Tale." King Peter of Spain O noble, worthy Peter, glory of Spain, Whom fortune held so high in majesty, How bitterly should we lament thy pain, Who by thy brother driven forth to flee, After siege wert caught by treachery, And thus betrayed wert taken to his tent Where with his own hands he murdered thee And gained succession to thy throne and rent! Upon and argent field an eagle sable Caught on a lime-rod gules (if you read This riddle) brewed the treason and was able — O 'wicked nest'! — to do a wicked deed! No, Oliver of Charlemagne he, to heed Honour and truth, but Brittany's mishap, A Ganelon-Oliver corrupt in greed It was that brought this King to such a trap! King Peter of Cyprus O Peter King of Cyprus, fine and true, That conqueredst Alexandria by the right Of arms, and didest woe on heathens too, Thy very liegemen envied thee, and spite (no other cause) against thy chivalrous might Moved them to murder thee upon the morrow There, on thy bed! Thus Fortune with a light Turn of her wheel brings men from joy to sorrow.
