Which of these stanzas from "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe represents the speaker's desire to be free from his sorrow and memories of Lenore? 1. Startled at the stillness broken by reply so aptly spoken, "Doubtless," said I, "what it utters is its only stock and store, Caught from some unhappy master whom unmerciful Disaster Followed fast and followed faster till his songs one burden bore— Till the dirges of his Hope that melancholy burden bore Of 'Never—nevermore.'" . . . 2. Then, methought, the air grew denser, perfumed from an unseen censer Swung by Seraphim whose foot-falls tinkled on the tufted floor. "Wretch," I cried, "thy God hath lent thee—by these angels he hath sent thee Respite—respite and nepenthe from thy memories of Lenore! Quaff, oh quaff this kind nepenthe and forget this lost Lenore!" Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore." . . . 3. "Prophet!" said I, "thing of evil!—prophet still, if bird or devil! By that Heaven that bends above us—by that God we both adore— Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn, It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels name Lenore— Clasp a rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore." Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore."

Answer: 2

Explanation: Although the second and third options mention Lenore, only the second option contains the essential words respite, which means rest, relief, and nepenthe, a mythological drug or antidote for sorrowful memories, which the speaker explicitly expects to drink (quaff) to "forget this lost Lenore."

Read the excerpt from The Dark Game. Arthur Zimmermann had no idea that "Blinker" Hall had read his secret message. But now that Hall had read it, what could he do with this information? On one hand, he believed that President Wilson, faced with the information in the telegram, would declare war on Germany. On the other hand, to share the telegram with Wilson would surely alert Berlin that the British had been reading their secret messages. As he walked back to his office, Hall considered ways that he could share the intelligence in the Zimmermann telegram and establish its authenticity without letting Berlin know that Room 40 had intercepted and read hundreds of their secret messages. Why was Hall concerned that the Germans would learn about the British reading their secret messages? -The Germans would begin reading British secret messages to get revenge. -Reading an enemy’s secret messages is against the codes of war. -The Germans would then find a different way of transmitting their messages.

Answer:

Hall was concerned that the Germans would learn about the British reading their secret messages because The Germans would then find a different way of transmitting their messages.

Explanation:

In this excerpt from "The Dark Game: True Spy Stories from Invisible Ink to CIA Moles", by Paul B. Janeczko, Hall doesn't want to let the Germans know he has read Zimmerman's secret message. The British had gone through many troubles to intercept German messages, and understand their meaning. They cannot risk this crucial achievement.

Read the excerpt below from act 3.2 of The Tragedy of Julius Caesar and answer the question that follows. BRUTUS: But as he was ambitious, I slew him. . . . Who is here so base that would be a bondman? If any, speak, for him have I offended. Who is here so rude that would not be a Roman? If any, speak, for him have I offended. Who is here so vile that will not love his country? If any, speak, for him have I offended. I pause for a reply. Which rhetorical device does Brutus use in this excerpt? a. antithesis b. paralipsis c. epimone d. metonymy

I reckon that rhetorical device that William Shakespeare used in Brutus’ public speech is a nice example of epimone. Because during this excerpt you can see how Brutus appeals to the listeners by repeating the phrase ‘’If any, speak, for him have I offended.’’ which is a direct significance on the epimone that is considered to be the most used in Shakespeare’s works. Epimone is figure that uses by orator to bring his point in crowd by repetition of the idea in the same words.

Which of the following is an example of adapting messages to others? a. attending a sign language class b. a student reading a passage to the class c. a counselor listening to his patient d. a mom talking to her toddler using simpler words

d. a mom talking to her toddler using simpler words


Adapting messages to others is when the way the message is delivered is changed based on the audience. In option D, the mother has a specific message she wants her toddler to understand, but she will not use the same language for a child as she would for a teenager or an adult. The message has been adapted to account for the toddler's age. In option A, attending a sign language class does not necessarily mean that you're adapting a message, just using a different means to send the message. Also, attending the class doesn't mean you're actually using sign language. Option B would not have an adapted message because the student is reading the passage word for word. Option C, the counselor is not adapting a message because he is receiving the message.

You should not use humor that is not specific to some point you are trying to make. true false

3. Have a message point that is being brought to life  

When speaking to an audience, the purpose is to convey a message, whatever it is, and however it is delivered, therefore, to have a message point that is being brought to life is essential

4. Delivering a message to her audience

When a  professional storyteller tells stories, they usually do it in order to express a message, whether explicitly or implicitly. The story is not told just because, it has a purpose

5. Communicating a message

A communicator main's goal is to communicate a message regardless of the means used: a story, an activity that involves interacting with people, audiovisual materials, a short artistic performance, etc.

6. All stories should have a beginning and an end

With the resolution, people get the whole message. Without it, the story would be incomplete

7. False

The richness of stories lies in their diversity and variations of plots, characters, settings, resolutions and endings, and how they appeal to the readers so they get involved in the story, whether it is a sad or a happy story

8. The synthesis of everything you have been saying

In speeches, lots of pieces of information or ideas are given, and although they may seem disconnected to each other at first, they all actually are related to each other. To see the full picture, to do a synthesis of everything you are saying is key to understand the speech as a whole

9. When telling a story during a presentation, it is imperative that you take time to describe the setting

To understand the context where the story takes place helps the audience to be more involved in what it is being said, and to understand the character's intentions, and other elements of the story

10. It makes things less abstract and more memorable

With a vivid description of a physical setting, the plot of the story becomes more meaningful and clearer, and thus it appeals to the audience and makes it more memorable

11. Hope that everything turns out OK

This inevitably depends on the content of the speech, the audience, and other factors. But in all cases, a good or positive attitude during the speech, such as to "hope that everything turns out OK" will help you go more easily

12. It makes it more interesting for your audience, and they will be able to relate to it better

When we personalize, we focus on the audience's characteristic (age, profession, likes, feelings, etc.) rather than in general or abstract matters to convey the story, for example, we may use certain vocabulary when speaking to a group of teenager and other words when speaking to people on his 40s, similarly, we may choose to tell a story and not other depending on the audience. This way, the story becomes more meaningful and interesting for the audience, and thus, they will be able to relate to it better

13. False

A communicator's goal is to communicate a message, therefore, they aim to clarify or explain ideas, and lead the abstract behind

14. Statistics

Statistics is a great source of information to show credibility to your point, as they are based on studies and not subjective opinions

15. More interesting

From all the given options, this is the one that fits the best. A new character introduced in a dialogue may bring many things to the dialogue, from a different point of view, or idea, to the support of one point already established. All characters try to bring something to the story, and therefore, through their participation, the story can become more interesting

16. True

When you speak in dialogue, you are the main protagonists, you control what the characters say, you decide where to lead the story, in short, you become an all-powerful narrator

17. Change the tone of your voice

By making this change, the audience quickly understands that you are reproducing somebody else' thoughts or words, without needing any further explication of what you are doing. Besides, the performance becomes more dynamic

18. Understand how you feel about events you experience

To express one's thoughts and emotions openly, people may get the feeling that whatever your saying is genuine, and is true to you, and may understand you and your experiences better and may engage more in the speech

19. Forget what you are talking about

All the first three options are right, however, to forget what you are talking about may be the biggest drawback of them all because if you lose track of what you are saying or trying to communicate, the message would be lost, and you would not accomplish your main goal which it's to convey the message

20. False

Without passion, it is very unlikely that you appeal to people's emotions and convey that what you are saying is relevant, important and practical

21. Have a personal connection to the joke

The best way to say a joke is to be authentic with it and to feel related to it because this will let the joke flow effortlessly

22. True

Using humor may be seen as a technique to make a point, it is a means to your ultimate goal: the message

Answer:

1. the commemoration of the victims of the conflict.

2. feelings of pride and belonging.

3. chronological, because Lincoln talks about the past, present, and future of the nation.

Explanation:

A fundamental theme of the Gettysburg Address is the commemoration of the victims of the conflict. President Lincoln offered his Gettysburg Address to state that the soldiers that are buried in that cemetery made the place sacred through what they gave in the battle.

By referring to the framers of the Declaration of Independence as "our fathers,” Lincoln appeals to his listeners' feelings of pride and belonging. It was their forefathers who signed the Declaration of Independence 87 years before, creating the United States, and based on freedom.

The organizational pattern of the Gettysburg Address is chronological because Lincoln talks about the past, present, and future of the nation. He made reference to the forefathers, the present and in the end he calls the people to continue the unfinished work of the soldiers.

Its physical condition is still largely a mystery, but we know now that even in its equatorial region the midday temperature barely approaches that of our coldest winter. Its air is much more attenuated than ours, its oceans have shrunk until they cover but a third of its surface, and as its slow seasons change huge snowcaps gather and melt about either pole and periodically inundate its temperate zones.

My mom once said that she was at her wits' end by the time I turned 13 years old. The truth was that I had become insecure, and I hid from my fears by pretending to be too "bored" to do any real work. That was when my parents signed me up for stage classes. Acting and singing not only showed me my true potential, they taught me an essential fact: life is a team effort, and we all have different skills that we use together to make progress.

Which theme does Leo Tolstoy explore in this excerpt from The Death of Ivan Ilyich? "Then what does it mean? Why? It can't be that life is so senseless and horrible. But if it really has been so horrible and senseless, why must I die and die in agony? There is something wrong! "Maybe I did not live as I ought to have done," it suddenly occurred to him. "But how could that be, when I did everything properly?" he replied, and immediately dismissed from his mind this, the sole solution of all the riddles of life and death, as something quite impossible. A.) Humans are shortsighted and inconsiderate toward others. B.) Love is unpredictable and can be used to fulfill selfish needs. C.) Human mortality is inevitable, and it is important to live an authentic life. D.) Materialistic minded people cannot change no matter how difficult life becomes.

The correct answer is C.) Human mortality is inevitable, and it is important to live an authentic life.

Indeed, Ivan thinks he has lived a rightful life, a life where he has behaved honorably and has risen in society to a position of some wealth and influence. However, his wife does not love him and is completely self-centered. His daughter shows the exact same attitude and only his son does show some compassion.

The only person he feels some kind of warmth from is, Gerasim, his peasant servant boy who keeps him company as he is lying on his deathbed. Gerasim also does not share his fear of death due to his Christian faith and his detachment from the materialism of life since he is quite destitute and death would be a liberation.

Ivan discovers through Gerasim’s example that he has lived a materialistic shallow life; a life of conformity to societal norms. He realizes that the only way a life can be authentic is to show compassion and sympathy for other human beings.

Or, if a merchant in pursuit of gain, What port received thy vessel from the main? Or comest thou single, or attend thy train?” 2Then thus Minerva in Laertes' ear: "Son of Arcesius, reverend warrior, hear! Jove and Jove's daughter first implore in prayer, Then, whirling high, discharge thy lance in air." 3Cylenius now to Pluto's dreary reign Conveys the dead, a lamentable train! The golden wand, that causes sleep to fly, Or in soft slumber seals the wakeful eye, That drives the ghosts to realms of night or day, Points out the long uncomfortable way. 4Now sat Ulysses at the rural feast The rage of hunger and of thirst repress'd: To watch the foe a trusty spy he sent: A son of Dolius on the message went, Stood in the way, and at a glance beheld The foe approach, embattled on the field.

I am pretty sure about the second excerpt, it directly shows gods' involvement in mortal affairs
Then thus Minerva in Laertes' ear:"Son of Arcesius, reverend warrior, hear!Jove and Jove's daughter first implore in prayer,Then, whirling high, discharge thy lance in air."
And I believe that the next correct answer is
“But, tell me who thou art? and what thy race?
Thy town, thy parents, and thy native place?
Or, if a merchant in pursuit of gain,
What port received thy vessel from the main?
Or comest thou single, or attend thy train?”
