Bluebook wit

Three gems from my most recent stack of exams.  All of these are somewhat clearly produced by the desire to write quickly–that is, I’ve not chosen answers from bad exams, just ones that appear to have gone slightly awry.

  • Blake’s “London” suggests that there is a sexual double standard in Romantic-era England, and “this, therefore, created protestitution.”
  • According to Coleridge, “primary [imagination] is the creative power of bad god and man.”
  • “Beauty is a man-made thing.  The shape of a woman’s body is beautiful.”

I rather like the idea of protestitution.
