What did Shakespeare use to write the play Macbeth?

Several factors point to the Bard's attempt at impressing James I. The basis of the play comes from Scottish history; the real Macbeth, one of James' ancestors, ruled from 1040 to 1057. It explores similar themes to James' writings about the ideal king as one who does his duty to God and country with spotless integrity. The witches relate to James' interest in the supernatural and involvement in witch trials while ruling in Scotland. Even though Shakespeare portrays the witches as evil and emissaries of the devil, they pay complements to James in the prediction of Macbeth's long line of descendants to serve on the throne.

The oldest printed text of "Macbeth" is in the First Folio from 1623. By this time, there were significant alterations to the play, including two additional songs from Thomas Middleton's play "The Witch" (1615). Scholars believe these additions represent the audience's interest in the scenes from Shakespeare's original work; however, they are not indicators of his attempts at impressing the new king.

What is ironic about the ending of the poem "Richard Cory" by Edwin Arlington Robinson?

Irony is a rhetorical device in which an event that appears to be something in the surface is in fact completely different to the reality. In this case, the poem suggests that Richard Cory is the perfect man. He was a clean, slim gentleman. He was also rich and educated, and everyone wanted to be him. The reader, therefore, imagines that Cory has the perfect life. However, the irony at the end is that Cory ends up killing himself, proving that he did not have the perfect life everyone thought he had.

One element of lyric poetry is personal reflection. Which lines in this poem most clearly illustrate that element? I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud by William Wordsworth I wandered lonely as a cloud That floats on high o'er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of golden daffodils; Beside the lake, beneath the trees, Fluttering and dancing in the breeze. Continuous as the stars that shine And twinkle on the milky way, They stretched in never-ending line Along the margin of a bay: Ten thousand saw I at a glance, Tossing their heads in sprightly dance. The waves beside them danced; but they Out-did the sparkling waves in glee: A poet could not but be gay, In such a jocund company: I gazed—and gazed—but little thought What wealth the show to me had brought: For oft, when on my couch I lie In vacant or in pensive mood, They flash upon that inward eye Which is the bliss of solitude; And then my heart with pleasure fills, And dances with the daffodils.

Personal reflection into Lyric poetry expresses emotions as lyric poetry always does, but it also reflects on those feelings and makesan analysis of them.

The lines that best represent that element in this poem are:

I gazed—and gazed—but little thought

What wealth the show to me had brought:

He reflects about the wonders he has seen and how they're going to go on with him through his memories at any time, how come did he get this huge gift?

1) Which sentence includes the best domain specific words for an informative/explanatory article on how space exploration led to the development of new products for people?

a) Many products we use every day come from technology developed during the moon landing projects.
Comment: this is  a good option, but there aren't many specific words

b) Scientists used MRI, or magnetic resonance imaging, to select a suitable landing site on the lunar surface.
THIS IS THE CORRECT ANSWER - it uses specific terms (MRI) and mentions how it was developed for space exploration. MRI is used in heath exploration today. 


c) Athletic shoes now use the same materials as moon boots.
= no use of very specific language
d) Cordless tools were developed for astronauts to use during space walks.
= there is no talk about the use of the innovation outside of the space exploration context


2) In an informative/explanatory article about vacation planning, which of these concepts would be used to explain something to the reader?

a) Famous beaches - this is not a bad, idea, but it lacks the part of "explaining" - it's rather "describing"

b) Booking a hotel room - this is the best option - a description how to do it would be a good explanation and it's related to vacation planning. 

c) Effective natural sunscreens - again, this is something to mention, but perhaps not to explain, also it's not specific to holidays, as you also need sun protection outside of holidays

d) Travel agent recommendations - this is again not a bad option, but it lacks the "explanation" aspect

Which literary element is responsible for the change of tone in the last couplet of the poem? a)diction b)irony c)imagery d)syntax It was now deep dusk in the forest, and deepest in that part of it where these two were journeying. As nearly as could be discerned, the second traveller was about fifty years old, apparently in the same rank of life as Goodman Brown, and bearing a considerable resemblance to him, though perhaps more in expression than features. Still they might have been taken for father and son. And yet, though the elder person was as simply clad as the younger, and as simple in manner too, he had an indescribable air of one who knew the world, and who would not have felt abashed at the governor's dinner table or in King William's court, were it possible that his affairs should call him thither. But the only thing about him that could be fixed upon as remarkable was his staff, which bore the likeness of a great black snake, so curiously wrought that it might almost be seen to twist and wriggle itself like a living serpent. This, of course, must have been an ocular deception, assisted by the uncertain light. "Come, Goodman Brown," cried his fellow-traveller, "this is a dull pace for the beginning of a journey. Take my staff, if you are so soon weary." "Friend," said the other, exchanging his slow pace for a full stop, "having kept covenant by meeting thee here, it is my purpose now to return whence I came. I have scruples touching the matter thou wot'st of." "Sayest thou so?" replied he of the serpent, smiling apart. "Let us walk on, nevertheless, reasoning as we go; and if I convince thee not thou shalt turn back. We are but a little way in the forest yet." "Too far! too far!" exclaimed the goodman, unconsciously resuming his walk. "My father never went into the woods on such an errand, nor his father before him. We have been a race of honest men and good Christians since the days of the martyrs; and shall I be the first of the name of Brown that ever took this path and kept"

The correct answer to this question is letter "b) Irony." The literary element that is responsible for the change of tone in the last couplet of the poem is irony. By definition, irony refers to the state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often amusing as a result.

Which of the following was not an important aspect of American Romanticism? reason imagination intuition nature Emerson and Thoreau both believe that society __________. provides people with important opportunities prevents people from being free encourages people to be unique is the best place to gain an education Why does the speaker appeal to time and nature in "Concord Hymn"? to question their presence in the world to urge them to wash away anything man-made to ask them to preserve the memorial to encourage readers to be buried nearby

1. Reason.

The Romantic movement is generally seen as a reaction against the emphasis on reason that was characteristic of the Enlightenment. Therefore, this was not a significant element of American Romanticism.

2. Prevents people from being free.

Both authors believe that society can often limit people's freedom by not allowing them to become themselves. Therefore, they both encourage self-reliance and independence.

3. To ask them to preserve the memorial.

The author is asking Time and Nature to spare the memorial, and not damage it, so that future generations will remember what happened during the Battle of Concord. This is obvious in the last stanza:

Spirit, that made those heroes dare,

To die, and leave their children free,

Bid Time and Nature gently spare

The shaft we raise to them and thee.
