Martinmas Examinations

20 January, 2010

Here we have my Grandmother’s  Martinmas examination of 1947-8.  I have studied the same Medieval and Early English texts and would be loath to answer these questions.

Sixty-two years later, I take my Martinmas exam on a rather more modern subject: D.H. Lawrence, many of whose works were censured when my Grandmother took her exam.  I doubt that those offended by Lawrence’s ‘indecency’ would have expected this possible exam question: ‘Is Lawrence is more puritan or pornographer?’.  The answer?  I dunno.

Wish me luck.
