All of the following stylistic devices appear in the passage above except __________. I saw clearly the doom which had been prepared for me, and congratulated myself upon the timely accident by which I had escaped. Another step before my fall, and the world had seen me no more and the death just avoided was of that very character which I had regarded as fabulous and frivolous in the tales respecting the Inquisition. To the victims of its tyranny, there was the choice of death with its direst physical agonies, or death with its most hideous moral horrors. I had been reserved for the latter. By long suffering my nerves had been unstrung, until I trembled at the sound of my own voice, and had become in every respect a fitting subject for the species of torture which awaited me.

Identify which part of the plot is being developed (exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, or resolution), include the Act and Scene numbers along with the text, and write an explanation/analysis of what is taking place. You may also include events from Act 1 or Act 2.

I cannot write an analysis for you, but I can help you with some of the terms. Exposition is the insertion of important information by the narrator; for example, including information that explains a character's back story or a past event. Rising action is the action that leads up to the climax of the story, which is the most important part of the story. From there, the action that occurs is falling action, which leads to the resolution, in which things are wrapped up and ended. Hope this helps.

The correct answer is C. Vignettes

Explanation:

In literature, vignettes are short scenes or sketches that include a character and provide some information about it usually by focusing on one aspect such as personality traits, values, ideas, etc. Because of this, vignettes often represent scenes or sections of a complete plot and are widely used in theater or cinema. Additionally, some vignettes can focus on different elements and not only characters as they can describe places, objects or ideas. Thus, the ones that are short character sketches are vignettes.

It is this fate, I solemnly assure you, that I dread for you, when the time comes that you make your reckoning, and realize that there is no longer anything that can be done. May you never find yourselves, men of Athens, in such a position! Yet in any case, it were better to die ten thousand deaths, than to do anything out of servility towards Philip [or to sacrifice any of those who speak for your good]. A noble recompense did the people in Oreus receive, for entrusting themselves to Philip’s friends, and thrusting Euphraeus aside! And a noble recompense the democracy of Eretria, for driving away your envoys, and surrendering to Cleitarchus! They are slaves, scourged and butchered! A noble clemency did he show to the Olynthians, who elected Lasthenes to command the cavalry, and banished Apollonides! It is folly, and it is cowardice, to cherish hopes like these, to give way to evil counsels, to refuse to do anything that you should do, to listen to the advocates of the enemy’s cause, and to fancy that you dwell in so great a city that, whatever happens, you will not suffer any harm. In this speech, Demosthenes tries to warn people about an attack on Greece. Which statement best describes Demosthenes's claim? Demosthenes wants Athenians to believe that Athens is secure and no enemy can enter their country. Demosthenes warns Athenians not to be naïve and to be prepared for any circumstances. Demosthenes assures Athenians that nothing will change as long as their enemies don’t attack the city. Demosthenes claims that Athens will be destroyed because several Athenians have joined the enemy’s side. NextReset

From the speech of Demosthenes, he doesn't want the Athenians to refuse to do anything that they should be doing nor rely their safety to the hands of others that could be their enemy. To him, it's a sign of cowardice. The answer is Demosthenes warns Athenians not to be naive and to be prepared for any circumstances.

Once you make a career choice, you should set short, medium, and long-term goals.

This statement is actually true. Precisely because you have made a career choice, creating a thoughtful yet versatile career plan that sets or specifies your professional goals, as well as the means and the time-frame to achieve them, is very important if you want to remain focused, motivated, and eventually fulfilled. Usually, short-term goals refer to your immediate future (1 to 5 years ahead, approximately), and, therefore, they tend to be more specific and realizable, whereas medium-term and specially long-term goals, which could be accomplished five, ten, or more years from today (even a life-time), are more immaterial, or less tangible, but also more promising and fascinating. Life is unpredictable and not many things can be definitive, but setting goals and being committed to achieve them is a good way to shape a successful and satisfying professional career.

The words 'bequathed' means the act of passing ownership from one person to another. Even though the mistress is depicted as a kind owner, the fact that she can freely pass the ownership of a human being without her consent shows that the slaves simply seen as an object or property.
