Since it is the week before Spring Break, our guess is that you are feeling the stress of turning in papers and presenting projects and taking mid-term exams and rewriting your “to-do” list for the millionth time and… Here is a fun little game to help you stay on your toes. Below are the first lines of five different classic novels. The first Honors student to correctly guess all of the titles as well as their respective authors will receive a shout out on next week’s blog post and a small prize :
1. “He—for there could be no doubt of his sex, though the fashion of the time did something to disguise it—was in the act of slicing at the head of a Moor which swung from the rafters.”
2. “There was no possibility of taking a walk that day.”
3. “All this happened, more or less.”
4. “I have just returned from a visit to my landlord—the solitary neighbour that I shall be troubled with.”
5. “You will rejoice to hear that no disaster has accompanied the commencement of an enterprise which you have regarded with such evil forebodings.”
Here are your hints: Emily Brontë, Virginia Woolf, Charlotte Brontë, and Kurt Vonnegut (The fifth author is your guess!)
Just in case you need a little more help…
Send your guesses to firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember, the first honors student to correctly guess all five titles and authors will win!
Good luck, and have a wonderful week!
