  2. Yeats and Joyce felt that the fall of this historic figure shaped modern Irish literature? A. John Stuart Parnell “The modern literature of Ireland, and indeed all that stir of thought which prepared for the Anglo-Irish War, began when Parnell fell from power in 1891. A disillusioned and embittered Ireland turned away from parliamentary politics; an event was conceived and the race began, as I think, to be troubled by that event's long gestation.” B. Arthur Griffith C. Queen Victoria D. Eamon De Valera William Butler Yeats D. Michael Davitt (Click once for answer and additional information that will appear after the answer appears.

  3. Who Was the “Big Fella? One of the most popular Irish revolutionary leaders, Michael Collins helped negotiate the Anglo-Irish Treaty. He was the IRA’s Minister of Intelligences at the time. He might have been set-up to take the fall for anticipated dissatisfaction with the treaty. IRA leaders knew compromises would have to be made; they also realized that the more radical IRA members would reject anything less than complete separation from England. Under the treaty, Ireland was established as a dominion of the British Empire, had to pledge allegiance to English king, and the Royal Navy kept control of the Treaty Ports on Ireland’s south coast. At the signing of the treaty, Collins remarked, “I may have just signed my death warrant.” The anti-Treaty IRA members launched a Civil War on April 14, 1922. The rebels assassinated Collins on August 22, 1922 when they attacked his convoy in County Cork. The “Big Fella” was on route to Cork City seeking a truce to end the Civil War. A. Eamon De Valera B.

  4. Yeats’s “A Terrible Beauty Is Born” Refers to What Event? William Butler Yeats, “Easter 1916” (Abridged) I have met them at close of day    Coming with vivid faces From counter or desk among grey    Eighteenth-century houses. I have passed with a nod of the head    Or polite meaningless words,    Or have lingered awhile and said    Polite meaningless words, And thought before I had done    Of a mocking tale or a gibe    To please a companion Around the fire at the club,    Being certain that they and I    But lived where motley is worn:    All changed, changed utterly:    A terrible beauty is born Hearts with one purpose alone    Through summer and winter seem    Enchanted to a stone To trouble the living stream. The horse that comes from the road,    The rider, the birds that range    From cloud to tumbling cloud,    Minute by minute they change;    A shadow of cloud on the stream  . . . . . . Too long a sacrifice Can make a stone of the heart.    O when may it suffice? That is Heaven's part, our part    To murmur name upon name,    As a mother names her child    When sleep at last has come    On limbs that had run wild.    What is it but nightfall? No, no, not night but death;    Was it needless death after all? For England may keep faith    For all that is done and said.    We know their dream; enough To know they dreamed and are dead;    And what if excess of love    Bewildered them till they died?    I write it out in a verse— MacDonagh and MacBride    And Connolly and Pearse Now and in time to be, Wherever green is worn, Are changed, changed utterly:    A terrible beauty is born. A. The Beginning of the Civil War B. The Death of Parnell C. The Signing of the Anglo-Irish Treaty D. The Easter Rebellion E. The Execution of Roger Casements (Click once for answer and additional information that will appear after the answer appears. Then click to advance to next slide.)

  7. Joyce in Paris James Joyce Match the Artist With the Work Ezra Pound ˅ ˃ Ezra Pound convinced Joyce to settle in Paris to promote Ulysses and become part of its artistic milieu. Joyce found a patron in Sylvia Beach who opened her English–language bookstore, Shakespeare and Company, in 1919. Literary expatriates were drawn to her shop, which is in the background of the photograph, but her most celebrated literary efforts were made on behalf of her literary idol, Joyce.
