If you explained exactly what you want (and showed what you tried to do)
it would be easier to help.  What does e.g. the tuple `(2,2)' mean?

Here's is an example which should give you an idea how to solve the

. >>> s = ['hi','my','name','is','Jeff']
. >>> s[0:2]
. ['hi', 'my']
. >>> s[2:4]
. ['name', 'is']
Your reshape function just has to create the list slices.
