Deliverable 03 – Humanities (Test-Out Sophia Replacement)
Formulate, express, and support individual perspectives on diverse works and issues.
You will act as a critic for some of the main subjects covered in the humanities. You will conduct a series of short, evaluative critiques of film, philosophy, literature, music, and myth. You will respond to five different prompts, and each response should include an analysis of the topics using terminology unique to that subject area and should include an evaluation as to why the topic stands the test of time. The five prompts are as follows:
I find no peace, and all my war is done; I fear and hope, I burn and freeze likewise I fly above the wind, yet cannot rise; And nought I have, yet all the world I seize on; That looseth, nor locketh, holdeth me in prison, And holds me not, yet can I â€™scape no wise; Nor lets me live, nor die, at my devise, And yet of death it giveth none occasion. Without eyes I see, and without tongue I plain; I wish to perish, yet I ask for health; I love another, and yet I hate myself; I feed in sorrow, and laugh in all my pain; Lo, thus displeaseth me both death and life, And my delight is causer of my grief.
After great pain a formal feeling comesâ€” The nerves sit ceremonious like tombs; The stiff Heart questionsâ€”was it He that bore? And yesterdayâ€”or centuries before?
The feet mechanical go round A wooden way Of ground or air or ought Regardless grown, A quartz contentment like a stone.
This is the hour of lead Remembered if outlived As freezing persons recollect The snowâ€” First chill, then stupor, then The letting go
