Page 3 of 4 SECTION B: ESSAY QUESTIONS This section is worth 50 marks. Please begin this section in a new answer book ANSWER ONE QUESTION FROM THIS SECTION 1. Arthur Crowning-Deal and Agatha Crusty each published a successful crime novel earlier this year; both novels follow the exploits of a serial killer who manages to evade the police and escape punishment. Crowning-Deal portrays the criminal in a positive light – as a heroic outsider whose lust for blood is celebrated, while Crusty depicts her killer as a vicious criminal whose escape from punishment is condemned in the novel. Both novels are written in a realistic, straightforward manner, and neither is to be read as black comedy. Plagiarism concerns aside, does it seem plausible to suggest that, all things being equal, Crowning-Deal’s novel is likely to be aesthetically flawed insofar as it praises a serial killer, while Crusty’s novel will not be so flawed in that respect (obviously, both novels may suffer from other aesthetic flaws)? In your discussion, you must refer to the relevant readings to substantiate your answer. 2. “I am left with the conclusion that our being moved in certain ways by works of art, though very 'natural' to us and in that way only too intelligible, involves us in inconsistency and so incoherence.” So writes Colin Radford in his paper “How Can We Be Moved by the Fate of Anna Karenina?” What is Radford’s worry about our ability to be moved emotionally by works of fiction, and can you suggest a way of resolving Radford’s concerns? 3. Suppose we discover a diary belonging to the poet John Peat, which discusses his poem, “Lady of the Cave”, that has been the subject of much debate amongst literary scholars. Critics have been divided on various issues, including the identity of the “Lady” of the mountains, and whether “the cave” referred to in the poem was an actual cave, or an allusion to Plato’s cave in his dialogue The Republic . Should critics pay particular attention to Peat’s diary as a way of assisting in resolving these differences of interpretation, or would this be either inappropriate or irrelevant? Discuss fully.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
