Answer any three of the following questions, 2-3 pages for each answer, for a total of 6-9 pages. You may hand in your answers early if you like, but all answers are due by Tues., May 15th, in class.
The questions are keyed to different reading assignments, with the idea that each question is raised most centrally in a certain part of the reading. However, you can and should use material from anywhere in the text where it's relevant to the answer.
Because this is an exam rather than a paper, I will give priority to accuracy over originality in grading. However, all the questions do require some thought; they can't simply be read out of the texts. Moreover, in many (if not all) cases the ``correct'' answer is unavoidably a matter of interpretation: in such cases it would be safest to reproduce what I said in class, but it will also be acceptable if you're clearly following some other reasonable interpretation. And, of course, as usual, your answer must be ``original'' in the sense that it is your own work. (If you use any outside source--which I don't recommend--you must cite it.)
Since we read the A edition only, please base your answer on the A edition text (where there are differences). You can cite it by the A-edition page number (e.g., ``A112'').
