No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's and yet as mortal as his own; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns they were scrutinised and studied, perhaps almost as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinise the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. With infinite complacency men went to and fro over this globe about their little affairs, serene in their assurance of their empire over matter. It is possible that the infusoria under the microscope do the same. No one gave a thought to the older worlds of space as sources of human danger, or thought of them only to dismiss the idea of life upon them as impossible or improbable. It is curious to recall some of the mental habits of those departed days. At most terrestrial men fancied there might be other men upon Mars, perhaps inferior to themselves and ready to welcome a missionary enterprise. Yet across the gulf of space, minds that are to our minds as ours are to those of the beasts that perish, intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic, regarded this earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely drew their plans against us. And early in the twentieth century came the great disillusionment. Which of the following states the central idea of the first paragraph? For many reasons, humans did not notice they were being watched. Humans were like creatures that swim and live in water. Microscopes help define the human view of the inhabitants of Mars. Minds across the universe have been plotting to destroy humanity.

For many reasons, humans did not notice that they were being watched.
I'd say its this one:)

Which pair of uses of figurative language from “The Caged Bird” help support the extended metaphor of freedom versus oppression?

The first two stanzas contrast two birds. Lines 1 through 7 describe the actions of a bird that is free; it interacts with nature and “dares to claim the sky.” The second stanza (lines 8 through 14) tells of a captured bird that must endure clipped wings, tied feet, and bars of rage; yet he still opens his throat and sings.The third and fifth stanzas are identical. Lines 2, 4, and 6 and lines 5 and 7 of these identical stanzas rhyme. This repeated verse elaborates on the song of freedom trilled by the caged bird; though his heart is fearful and his longings unmet, the bird continues to sing of liberty. The fourth stanza continues the comparison of two birds, the caged and the free. The free bird enjoys the breeze, the trees, the winds, the lawn, the sky, and the fat worms; the caged bird with his wings still clipped and his feet still tied continues, nevertheless, to open his throat and sing.  So, "the caged bird sings" - "the free bird thinks"  help support the extended ,etaphor of freedom versus oppresion.

QUESTION POSTED AT 29/01/2020 - 01:14 PM

According to ancient mythology, Minerva is the goddess of wisdom. Knowing that, is there a reason why she might be interested in helping Ulysses? Why did Homer use Minerva to help Ulysses rather than another god? Cite any evidence from the text you might find to help support your point.

Minerva is the goddess of wisdom and warfare. She epitomizes the qualities of skillful planning, bravery, motivation, intelligence, and judiciousness—all of which are qualities found in Ulysses. Ulysses almost represents the mortal version of the goddess Minerva. She finds the similarities between them amusing and tells him so when she is disguised as a shepherd:


O still the same Ulysses! (she rejoin'd,)

In useful craft successfully refined!

Artful in speech, in action, and in mind!

Sufficed it not, that, thy long labours pass'd,

Secure thou seest thy native shore at last?

But this to me? who, like thyself, excel

In arts of counsel and dissembling well;

To me? whose wit exceeds the powers divine,

No less than mortals are surpass'd by thine.


Their similarities are likely the reason why Homer chooses Minerva to play a divine guardian to Ulysses. She may not always be physically present to help him when he's in trouble, but she provides support when he needs help. She persuades her father, Jove, to release Ulysses from the nymph Calypso's captivity. She also guides Telemachus on his search for Ulysses, and she ensures that Princess Nausicaa finds him. When Ulysses finally returns to Ithaca, she disguises him to protect him from potential thieves and enemies who want his throne.
