    Paper-7 Prose

    The objectives of this course are to familiarize the students with a wide range of functional and non-functional styles in English prose. Through an in-depth analysis of Bacon's text in terms of his use of wit, figures of speech, imagery and aphorisms, the course begins with the Renaissance prose and moves on to an analysis of the layers of wit, irony, humour, sarcasm, sardonic, tone leading to bitter and pungent satire in Swift's Gulliver's Travels. Huxley's and Russell's prose styles are analyzed in relation to the contemporary thought and philosophy; comparisons and contrasts in various prose writers' styles are also highlighted. Two chapters from the works of Chomsky and Said are being introduced to acquaint the students with the contemporary prose writers. The question paper will give equal weightage to each section and a question will also be set on textual analysis.
