Literature in English:-

   1. Literary Analysis (40 – 55%)
      An ability to interpret given passages of prose and poetry. Such questions may involve recognition of conventions and genres, allusions and references, meaning and tone, grammatical structures and rhetorical strategies, and literary techniques.
   2. Identification (15 – 20%)
      Recognition of date, author or work by style and/or content (for literary theory identifications see IV below).
   3. Cultural and Historical Contexts (20 – 25%)
      Questions on literary, cultural and intellectual history as well as identification of author or work through a critical statement or biographical information. Also identification of details of character, plot or setting of a work.
   4. History and Theory of Literary Criticism (10 – 15%)
      Identification and analysis of the characteristics and methods of various critical and theoretical approaches.
