Known for his narrative poems set in New England locales, Robert Frost may seem like a simple poet. Many people young and old can relate to his oft-read verse, including "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening," "The Road Not Taken," and "Mending Wall." A second or third reading of Frost’s poems reveal, however, that his poetry is far from simple. Frost creates poems that are just as complex as they are accessible to the everyday reader. The effect is that they’re deceptively simple. "Mending Wall," published in 1914, is a perfect example of this. Frost's lines read easily on the surface. This belies how masterfully crafted the formal lines really are. This poem is about two neighbors' springtime ritual of repairing a stone wall that has been damaged both by the natural forces of winter and deliberately by hunters. The poem’s famous saying, "Good fences make good neighbors," is quoted in many different contexts. The poem’s first line, "Something there is that doesn't love a wall," shows from the beginning that Frost’s lines have a formal purpose. The lines have a literal meaning, but this meaning is reinforced by the way Frost constructed the lines. Frost’s use of inversion, wherein he writes the line in a turned-around way as he does instead of saying the more natural sounding, "There is something that doesn't love a wall," creates a sense of mystery and questioning, just as the first line of "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" does: "Whose woods these are I think I know." What type of essay is this?

More likely Robert Frost is a very famous poet and tends to get inspired by nature so I suggest that is is apart of nature

1. Read the following lines from the poem "Eve to Her Daughters" in which the speaker describes Adam. In the process he had to on reveal everything, because he believed that mechanism was the whole secret- he was always mechanical minded. He got to the very inside of the whole machine exclaiming as he went, so this is how it works! And now that I know how it works, why, I must have invented it. As for God and the Others, they cannot be demonstrated, and what can I be demonstrated don't exist. You see, he had always been jealous. The details in these lines lead the reader to understand the Adam does not believe in the reality of A. God B. Secrets C. Inventions D. Mechanics 2. Read the following paragraph from "Saboteur" Then it dawned on him that Fenjin must have been sent over by his bride. What a stupid woman! A book worm, Who only know how to read for novels! He had expected that she would contact the school's Security Section, which would for sure send a cadre here. Fenjin held no official position; he merely worked in a private law firm that hurt just to lawyers; in fact, they had little business except for some detective work for men and women who suspected their spouses of having extramarital affairs. Mr. Chiu was overcome with a wave of nausea. Which of the following words best describes Mr. Chiu's feelings toward his wife? A. Infuriated B. Patient C. Patronizing D. Understanding Please check my work. I think 1 is A and 2 is Either A or C but I'm guessing it may be C but I think I may be incorrect on my guess.

Answer: 1. A. God

              2. A. Infuriated


Let's talk about the first question. From the excerpt, we may understand that Adam, after having a revelation, after understanding "how it works", concludes that, if he knows he it works, he "must have invented it". That seems to mean that, once man became rational and capable of logical thinking, he started to question God's existence - if God cannot be explained, he does not exist. Thus, the best answer seems to be letter A.

Let's move on to the second question. Right from the beginning of the excerpt, we may understand that Mr. Chiu is mad at his wife to the point of thinking "What a stupid woman!" Since she didn't do what he expected the way he expected it to be done, he thinks of her as useless. The adjective "patronizing" describes someone who acts with a superior attitude toward others, in a condescending manner, and that's why I do not believe it to be the best option. His words would be a mix of pity, contempt, and politeness. From the exclamation "What a stupid woman!", we can tell he's simply infuriated. So, I believe the best option to be letter A.

Read the excerpt from "Why I Wrote 'The Yellow Wallpaper.'" This wise man put me to bed and applied the rest cure, to which a still-good physique responded so promptly that he concluded there was nothing much the matter with me, and sent me home with solemn advice to “live as domestic a life as far as possible,” to “have but two hours’ intellectual life a day,” and “never to touch pen, brush, or pencil again” as long as I lived. What social attitude of Gilman’s era does this excerpt best demonstrate? A.Women who were not married were considered dangerous. B.Women were not allowed to vote in local or national elections. C.Women were not supposed to exert themselves much physically. D.Women were not considered suited to work outside the home.

Answer: D.Women were not considered suited to work outside the home.

In this excerpt, Gilman describes her illness, and the treatment that she received by her doctor. Once Gilman felt fine, the doctor told her that she needed to remain at home and have a domestic life in order to be healthy. The doctor believed that Gilman's intellectual and public life was the reason for her illness. This shows that people at the time did not believe women should do much work outside of the home.

During the spring of every year, the narrator contacts his older neighbour and they walk the wall as well as to replace the walls which have fallen.

I answer not, as a certain person is reported to have done facetiously (avoiding the pressure of the question), He was preparing hell, says he, for those who pry into mysteries. (Book XI, Chapter 12) What does the word “facetiously” mean? lacking a serious or respectful attitude lacking pleasure or happiness nervously or anxiously quietly or privately


The word "facetious" means lacking a serious or respectful attitude  


The formal definition of the word facetious is to make fun of something or not to take something very seriously so it could refer to attitudes or personalities, in this case, taking away the seriousness or importance of the question or trying not to get to into a religious topic by talking about the things that God did.

LAURA: Hello, mother, I was—[She makes a nervous gesture toward the chart on the wall. AMANDA leans against the shut door and stares at LAURA with a martyred look.] In the excerpt from The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams, which element of drama is contained in brackets? dialect dialogue narration stage directions

The correct answer is D. Stage directions


In drama which is the representation of fiction through performance the term stage directions refers to the actions of the characters on the stage, this means the stage directions are the gestures, movements, position, and attitude of the characters during the events or scenes a play includes. These details and directions help the actors to know how to act and behave to fit with the characters they represent.

Additionally, these directions are usually linked to the lines or dialogues of the characters and included during scripts (a document that has all the information of a play) by using brackets or similar punctuation marks to separate the dialogues or words of the characters from their movements, gestures, and attitudes (stage directions). Considering the previous ideas, it can be concluded the information from the excerpt "The Glass Menagerie" that appears on brackets are D. the stage directions as this show the attitude and movements of the characters as in "She makes a nervous gesture toward the chart on the wall" which is the purpose of stage directions.
