QUESTION POSTED AT 01/04/2020 - 01:44 PM

PLEASE HELP QUICK!One morning, when Gregor Samsa woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a horrible vermin. He lay on his armor-like back, and if he lifted his head a little he could see his brown belly, slightly domed and divided by arches into stiff sections. The bedding was hardly able to cover it and seemed ready to slide off any moment. His many legs, pitifully thin compared with the size of the rest of him, waved about helplessly as he looked. “What’s happened to me?” he thought. It wasn’t a dream. Gregor then turned to look out the window at the dull weather. Drops of rain could be heard hitting the pane, which made him feel quite sad. “How about if I sleep a little bit longer and forget all this nonsense”, he thought, but that was something he was unable to do because he was used to sleeping on his right, and in his present state couldn’t get into that position. However hard he threw himself onto his right, he always rolled back to where he was. He must have tried it a hundred times, shut his eyes so that he wouldn’t have to look at the floundering legs, and only stopped when he began to feel a mild, dull pain there that he had never felt before. There was a cautious knock at the door near his head. “Gregor,” somebody called—it was his mother—“it’s quarter to seven. Didn’t you want to go somewhere?” Gregor was shocked when he heard his own voice answering, it could hardly be recognized as the voice he had had before. As if from deep inside him, there was a painful and uncontrollable squeaking mixed in with it, the words could be made out at first but then there was a sort of echo which made them unclear. Gregor had wanted to give a full answer and explain everything, but in the circumstances contented himself with saying: “Yes, mother, yes, thank-you, I’m getting up now.” Gregor wakes up to find himself transformed. In two to three sentences, describe the creature you think he has transformed into. Use evidence from the text to support your answer.

Brown belly,floundering legs,had trouble getting up
i think he turned into a spider.

Which word in this excerpt from Homer's Odyssey means the same as "to cause" or "to impose" something? If no man hurt thee, but the hand divine Inflict disease, it fits thee to resign: To Jove or to thy father Neptune pray.' The brethren cried, and instant strode away. Joy touch'd my secret soul and conscious heart, Pleased with the effect of conduct and of art. Meantime the Cyclop, raging with his wound, Spreads his wide arms, and searches round and round:

The word inflict means to cause something unpleasant or painful to someone or something. I could also mean to do something that's really unwelcoming.


So...


The best word in the excerpt from Homer's Odyssey that means the same as "to cause" or "to impose" something is inflict.

QUESTION POSTED AT 01/04/2020 - 01:39 PM

Which excerpt from Rudyard Kipling's "The White Man's Burden" conveys the perspective that colonized people never show appreciation for what white men do for them? A. Take up the White Man's burden— No tawdry rule of kings, But toil of serf and sweeper— The tale of common things B. Take up the White Man's burden— Send forth the best ye breed— Go bind your sons to exile To serve your captives' need C. Take up the White Man's burden— The savage wars of peace— Fill full the mouth of Famine And bid the sickness cease D. Take up the White Man's burden— And reap his old reward: The blame of those ye better, The hate of those ye guard—

Answer: D. Take up the White Man's burden— And reap his old reward: The blame of those ye better, The hate of those ye guard—

"The White Man's Burden" is a poem written by Rudyard Kipling. The "burden" refers to the responsibilities Kipling believed colonizers had towards colonized people. From his point of view, the societies that were colonized benefitted greatly from becoming colonies. England provided them with education, technology, health care, a new political system, etc. All things that Kipling believed every society needed and benefitted from.

In this line, Kipling argues that part of the burden is not being appreciated for your contribution. He says that those that you "better" (improve) or "guard" (protect) end up blaming you and hating you. He means that locals end up resenting and hating the colonizers, despite their contributions. He considers this part of the "white man's burden."

QUESTION POSTED AT 01/04/2020 - 01:22 PM

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
