Dear Student,

In a conventional class your teacher would have discussed your assignment with you,

pointed out what made a good essay and what a bad one. We have done exactly the same

thing in Unit 52 of the British Poetry (MEG-01) course. Read it carefully and discuss it

with your counsellor and class-fellows at the Study Centre. Thereafter decide upon a

topic, i.e. a period or literary group in the history of British Poetry. You may, if you

wish, select a topic from the list given in 52.2.1 (p. 70) in Block X.

Alternatively, you could write on a British poet of your choice. You may write on a poet

discussed in the units, i.e. on the syllabus, or even a poet we have not discussed in detail

such as Robert Burns, G.M. Hopkins, R.S. Thomas, Ted Hughes or Seamus Heaney.

You may have heard some of our lectures on The Movement, Philip Larkin and Ted

Hughes on the EduSat. It may now be available on e-gyankosh on

You have yet another choice. Write an essay on a famous poem in English literature.

Ha~.ingd ecide upon your topic, do your research. Then read section 36.5 in Unit 36 in

Block VIII for a model essay and a format for presentation. You should learn how to

present your term paperlsessional essay from 36.5. You must not quote from

unacknowledrred sources.

To sum up, write an essay on a period or literarv nroup in British voetrv. or a British

~ poetry a British poem in about 3000 words on the model provide in 36.5 (in unit 36).
