1) Briefly outline the features of the 18th-century novels. Focus then on Defoe’s novels and examine their structure and characterization.
2) What were the 18th- century novels characterised by? Refer then briefly to the main features of Defoe’s novels
3)What kind of man is Robinson? What does he have in common with the classical heroes of travel literature?
4) What are the main themes of Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”? How can the play be interpreted?
5)Briefly examine the structure of English society in the 18th century.
6)Which political parties did the Augustan Age see the rise of? Who supported them and what kind of policy did they press for? What advantages did Britain get from Robert Walpole’s policy?
1 is better than 2.

The rest are fine.
