I've been reading up on literary theory. In doing so, I've found out where a lot of familar phrases come from.
So here's a quiz. Match the phrase with the writer who created or popularized it. (Answers will be provided later.)
B. End in itself
C. Purple prose
D. The dismal science
E. Sweetness and light
F. Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast
G. Objective correlative
H. Willing suspension of disbelief
I. Poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world
J. Negative capability
10. T. S. Eliot
PS The answers are listed here, but give the quiz a shot before you look them up.
