UTPT 2019 LitEnt Quiz Round 4 - Animal Farm

  1. 1. Animal Farm Written Round Round
  2. 2. Rules Rules • Written round • Every question has picture of an animal which will lead you to the name of a work of literature which has the animal shown in its title. • Based on this answer the question • Differential Scoring, +3*No of teams which don’t get Answer
  3. 3. 1) A critically acclaimed novella, which had been a frequent target of censor. The title comes from Robert Burn’s poem from the lines – The best laid schemes X often go awry He based the novella on his own experiences working alongside migrant farm workers in the 1910s before the arrival of the Okies(people of Oklahoma) that he would vividly describe in novel Y, which won the National Book award and Pulitzer prize. If I would use the title Y to name a winery, what pun on it would I use for a brewery, which is the name of a pub in Washington.
  4. 4. 2) This book about a world famous detective trying to solve the haunting of supernatural beast inspired the character of William of X in Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose. The character is also inspired by William Y, known for his principle that "when presented with competing hypotheses to solve a problem, one should select the solution with the fewest assumptions.“ Name the theory?
  5. 5. 3) The fourth book of this comedy science fiction author’s “trilogy” refers to the phrase said by these highly intelligent animals as they leave Earth before it’s destruction. These animals were once found on the coat of arms of the heir apparent of France giving him the title of X (French for the animal). What is the title X?
  6. 6. 4) For playing the main character of the novel, X’s portrayal was named the greatest film hero of the past 100 years by the American Institute. In 2001, Blink 182 released a clothing line for men and women that shared its names with the lead characters of the book. ID X and the name of the brands.
  7. 7. 5) The Novel is a psychological thriller novel published posthumously after the author died in 2004, which was later adapted into a movie series as well. On swapping 2 words in the novels name, we get a parody book by Adam Roberts, where the main character is described as young and beautiful, her scales having iridescent sheen, her wings arching proudly and her breath with a tang of sulfur. The main characters name is a pun on the name of the titular character of the original novel, which relates to the description given.
  8. 8. 6) The book X: The Impact of the Highly Improbable focuses on outlier events, for example finding the above animal in that particular colour. The bird also features in a Greek myth where Zeus seduces Leda in bird form and impregnates her. She eventually gave birth to four children, one of whom was the cause of a Greek tragedy. What was the impact of this highly improbable event (of a bird impregnating a woman)?
  9. 9. 7) The author of this book, left college without a masters degree as the institution rejected his original thesis. 25 years later though, they accepted this novel he wrote as his thesis and granted him a Masters degree. 66652 X is a Kupier Belt Object, an object that orbits beyond Neptune. It has been identified as a binary celestial body. It's companion Y orbits it. They get their name from the novel in question. In the book, X is the sun and Y is the moon. In the book “X, the sun, held Y, the moon, in his arms and hoped that Y would bear him a fiery child. But poor Y gave birth to children that were cold, that did not burn... Then poor Y herself was cast away, and she went to live with her favourite child, which was Earth”
