Just another question from me--could we have a brief synopsis of what the final will be like? I'm not really accustomed to this sort of objective testing on literary subjects, so a run down of what to expect might be nice--format, general topics? Thank you!

Just in case anyone was wondering... I followed up in class with all that I was planning to say about the exam. You will have some lattitude in choosing works and themes for your essays, but I wasn't planning to announce study topics.

The identification questions are worth slightly less this time around, but otherwise the format is just like the midterm.
