Answer all questions.
1.Explain with critical comments any two of the following passages with reference to their contexts: 10+10
(a) Where was heard the mingled measure
From the fountain and the caves.
It was a miracle of rare device,
A sunny pleasure-dome with caves of ice!
(b) We sat grown quiet at the name of love; We saw the last embers of daylight die,
And in the trembling blue-green of the sky, A moon, worn as if it had been a shell
Washed by time’s waters as they rose and fell, About the stars and broke in days and years.
(c) Weep no more, woful shepherds, weep no more, For Lycidas your sorrow is not dead,
Sunk though he be beneath the watery floor. So sinks the day-star in the ocean bed,
And yet anon repairs his drooping head, And tricks his beams and with new spangled ore,
Flames in the forehead of the morning sky: So Lycidas sunk low, but mounted high,
Through the dear might of him that walk’d the waves.
(d) When the stars threw down their spears,
And water’d heaven with their tears,
Did he smile his work to see
Did he who made the Lamb make thee?
