Clipart of books; Size=248 pixels wide

1. Name the parts of speech:
There are 8: noun, verb, adjective, adverb, pronoun, conjunction, interjection, preposition.
(Mr. Georges used to have fun with this question on the first day of school by placing 12 blank spaces on the quiz page. Year after year, students would "invent" 4 new parts of speech, just to fill up the spaces.)
2. What are the two principal themes of Shakespeare's Hamlet?
(1) appearances and (2) corruption
(Amaze you friends the next time you watch Kenneth Branagh's movie version of Hamlet! That's the reason for all those mirrors!)
3. Define "bogus."
counterfeit; sham
(Thanks to the extremely cool Heidi Breylinger Delle, Class of 1978, and the wonderful Linda Olson Steege, Class of 1963, for providing us with a complete set of both Junior and Senior vocab words!)
4. Finish this quote: "She walks in beauty..."
"She walks in beauty, like the night
of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
meet in her aspect and her eyes."
(How could you forget? This poem was quite obviously written about all the girls at EHS, and we're still lookin' good!)
5. Who wrote the poem quoted in #4?
George Gordon, Lord Byron, 1788-1824
