Long Paper (25%): In lieu of a final exam, students will select a topic of their own choosing and write a term paper of 10-15 pages. This is a research paper and will require additional readings in both ancient and modern literature. All students must clear their topics with me before beginning work. I will not accept papers on topics that have not been approved. The long paper is due by 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 7, the last day of final exams. No late papers will be accepted.
Lord Lytton, the elegant and shallowtrifler, tells us, "A woman's noblest stationis retreat," but "retreat" is a word forever unpopularwith the women of the Bible. Miriam,Huldah, Deborah and Anna were notof Lord Lytton's opinion. They joined inone temperament silk and steel, and added tothe sweetness of womanhood the strength ofmanhood. Keen and flexible as the Damascusblade, they were not wanting in the gentlenessand modesty which are a woman's crown[Pg 15]of honor. I open Exodus and read a songfrom Miriam, the prophetess, that is olderthan the most ancient pagan lyric, and thatwill continue when English literature is forgotten.And there is Deborah, the nurse ofRebecca; how tenderly the Bible recordsher humble but faithful service. In ancienttimes and in the East nurses were held ingreater esteem than now with us. Homersang their praise; Virgil celebrated their virtues;and Ovid extolled their wisdom andkindness. It is no trivial office to guide anddirect the development of a child's life. Thenurse is second mother, and her influence issometimes, perhaps often, deathless as thesoul she instructs. The Bible teaches respectand consideration for those who are sociallybeneath us as servants, nurses, and dependentchildren of humble toil. The true lady takesher politeness into the kitchen; it is her abilityto do so that makes her the lady she is.Not fine manners in the ball-room, but a genuineand gracious dignity seasoned with womanlykindness, creates the true lady. Fewthink of the Bible as a book of social and domestic[Pg 16]etiquette, and yet such it is. Let a manfollow its precepts, and he shall become notonly a good man, but a gentleman; and whateverwoman will conform to the spirit of theSermon on the Mount shall find her lifesteadily developing into all that makes abeautiful character and fine address.
From ancient times the sun, apparently the largest and the brightest of stars visible to the naked eye, has been both an object of reverence and awe for the common man and a source of inspiration and inquisitiveness. It is also the source of all conventional energy on the earth. In ancient Egypt, the sun god Ra was the dominating figure among the high gods. In India the sun is glorified in the vedic hymns and there is even a dynasty of sun kings. There are over 200 known quotations relating to the sun in English poetry. In recent times, all over the world, the scientists, faced with the crisis of the conventional energy sources, are working hard to develop an artificial controllable sun in the laboratory by nuclear fusion. 2b1af7f3a8
