7 POINTS ON ENGLISH LITERATURE

1.    “No man is truly great, who is great only in his lifetime. The test of greatness is the page of history. Nothing can be said to be great that has a distinct limit, or that borders on something evidently greater than itself. Besides, what is short lived and pampered into mere notoriety, is of a gross and vulgar quality in itself.” This passage describing the quality of greatness is taken from : “The Indian Jugglers” by William Hazlitt

2.    Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s sonnets called “From sonnets from the Portuguese” because she presented it under the guise of a translation from the Portuguese language.

3.    Rural Ulster figures prominently in the verses of the poet Seamus Heaney

4.    Yeast’s “sailing to Byzantium” is about Regenerating the art and cultures that existed in Byzantium

5.     Most culinary terms in English are derived from French Cooking

6.    “Blended learning” is a mode of instruction/learning in which a variety of instructional modes are integrated.

7.    A  teaching method advocated by Dr Georgia Lozanav which is based on the principle of “joy and easiness” is called Suggesto Paedia
