I graded highly an anomymous epitaph, was too harsh on Donne, giving him a B (although this not Donne at his best either), and gave a B+ to Fletcher. I can live with that. I correctly identified two well-known poems by Herrick and raved about a LZ poem I thought was by LN. I mistook Rochester for Swift, correctly got Edward Fitzgerald, and mistook Yeats for D.H. Lawrence. I over-rated Crabbe: this one should have been a solid B+. I once again gave good grade to Golding. I gave variable marks to several poems by Burns: in my defense I would say they are variable poems. I identified Wordworth and gave him a very fair B-. I gave Byron a B+ and that's about right as well.
