Helen Grey By Christina Georgina Rossetti Because one loves you, Helen Grey, Is that a reason you should pout, And like a March wind veer about, And frown, and say your shrewish say? Don't strain the cord until it snaps, Don't split the sound heart with your wedge, Don't cut your fingers with the edge Of your keen wit; you may, perhaps. Because you're handsome, Helen Grey, Is that a reason to be proud? Your eyes are bold, your laugh is loud, Your steps go mincing on their way; But so you miss that modest charm Which is the surest charm of all: Take heed, you yet may trip and fall, And no man care to stretch his arm. Stoop from your cold height, Helen Grey, Come down, and take a lowlier place; Come down, to fill it now with grace; Come down you must perforce some day: For years cannot be kept at bay, And fading years will make you old; Then in their turn will men seem cold, When you yourself are nipped and grey. Summarize the lines in bold, explaining how they affect the development of the poem's main theme. Use evidence from the poem to support your answer.

King Lear by William Shakespeare (excerpt) LEAR. Meantime we shall express our darker purpose. Give me the map there. Know we have divided In three our kingdom; and 'tis our fast intent To shake all cares and business from our age, Conferring them on younger strengths while we Unburthen'd crawl toward death. …Tell me, my daughters (Since now we will divest us both of rule, Interest of territory, cares of state), Which of you shall we say doth love us most? That we our largest bounty may extend Where nature doth with merit challenge. Goneril, Our eldest-born, speak first. GONERIL. Sir, I love you more than words can wield the matter; Dearer than eyesight, space, and liberty; Beyond what can be valued, rich or rare; No less than life, with grace, health, beauty, honour; As much as child e'er lov'd, or father found; A love that makes breath poor, and speech unable. Beyond all manner of so much I love you. CORDELIA. [aside] What shall Cordelia speak? Love, and be silent. These lines occur in the play when Cordelia, unlike her sisters, refuses to flatter her father the King to gain his favor. Why do they belong to the exposition? A) They help establish the family's differing values. B)They describe Cordelia's personality. C)They indicate that Goneril is hypocritical. D)They occur before Lear divides his land among his daughters.

The best answer above would be letter A. The lines spoken by Cordelia belong to the exposition because they help establish the family's differing values. It could have been letter B (describing Cordelia's personality) but the focus of the exposition is not on her personality alone but about the whole picture depicted of the family.

QUESTION POSTED AT 20/01/2020 - 02:57 AM

Can anyone help me out with this one? Dear Citizens of Triston, As a concerned citizen of Triston and a member of the North Carolina Conservation of Nature Council, I am asking for the community's help with a serious issue. First, I want to congratulate our town's mayor and city council for planning to build a new community theater. However, do they realize that building the theater on Asbury Woodlands will destroy the prime breeding ground for an endangered species? The Bachman's warbler is a small bird about four inches in length. This green-backed bird has a bright yellow belly and face and is sometimes confused with the similarly colored hooded warbler. Since 1897, the population of the Bachman's warbler in North Carolina has decreased from more than 500,000 to fewer than 100. The main reason is the destruction of the areas (like Asbury Woodlands) that it uses for its natural breeding grounds. Bachman's warblers prefer thickly wooded swamps and wet thickets in heavy, full-grown forests where they can build their nests and feed on insects. This does not mean that we cannot build a community theater. A similar situation recently arose in Cape Pristo, North Carolina. Nobel Hotels canceled its plans to build a high-rise structure when it became known that the roseate tern, another endangered bird, was living in the suggested location. Nobel Hotels put up a new building several miles down the beach from the original location, and the roseate tern kept its home. Our community has forever prided itself on caring for our natural surroundings. The city council has promised that the proposed theater will be "highly tasteful" and that the structure will "complement the spirit of our town." The city council's honorable concern for the endangered Bachman's warbler would smooth the feathers of many voters. With their help and the support of our townspeople, future generations will appreciate the beauty of this little bird. Redmond Harris Which statement best captures the main argument of this editorial? a)Protecting the woodlands will give future generations a chance to appreciate the beauty of endangered species of birds. b)The city council should not be allowed to pursue city projects that will decrease the population of endangered birds. c)The need to conserve Asbury Woodlands to protect endangered species far outweighs that of providing a community theater. d)Conserving Asbury Woodlands is important because Bachman's warblers prefer thickly wooded swamps to build their nests and feed on insects.

The statement that best captures the main argument of the editorial is C. The need to conserve Asbury Woodlands to protect the endangered species far outweighs that of providing a community theater. You can glean this from the sentence that states that preserving the area would smooth the feathers of voters.

None of the above 10. Describing a physical setting is important when telling a story because people do not have a map in front of them. it makes things less abstract and more memorable. most audiences lack imagination. it is more fun for you. 11. After you have described the setting and you are about to introduce new concepts, you have no choice but to hope that everything turns out OK. make jokes to take the focus off of you. speed up to relay as much information as you can. slow down. 12. One reason to personalize your story is that you have no other material. it is all about you, they came here to hear you speak, so give them what they want. if you lose your place you can just start making things up it makes it more interesting for your audience, and they will be able to relate to it better. 13. The nature of audiences is to have a much harder time understanding what you say versus what they read or study. true false 14. The most important element of telling a story to flesh out your point to the audience is the use of statistics. humor. dialogue. interesting slides. 15. When using dialogue and you introduce another character, you make your story more confusing. more interesting. no different, really. a bit more boring. 16. Speaking in dialogue is a great tool because it puts you in the position as an all-powerful narrator. true false 17.

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
