In The Raven, to you personally, what does the Raven represent? (this is a personal question that id like YOUR opinion on) I need real opinions for this essay pls make it a long answer...

Some of the reasons that Poe chose this bird instead of a parrot is because it has a melancholy tone, it picks carcasses, it is a sign of ill-omen, and it is black. Black is a reminder of sorrow, darkness, evil, death, lack of insight, and mourning. These are all disturbing attributes of this bird and these show that a raven is not something you would want at your door in the middle of the night. When Poe first started writing this poem, he knew he had to have a bird that could talk, yet was non-sentient, non-thinking, and non-reasoning. So he had the choice of a parrot or a raven. As you can tell from above, the raven is more fitting for his intention.

QUESTION POSTED AT 29/03/2020 - 04:30 PM

Which excerpt from the letter to the editor includes an opinion? Our city currently has a dense downtown area and then a massive amount of sprawl reaching out in every direction—the sprawl takes up seventy-five percent of the city’s land. We need to ask for a change at this critical juncture, as our city rapidly expands at an unprecedented rate. The residents who live in these faraway suburbs often work downtown, where the majority of businesses are still located. Besides the business district, the city university, our two museums, and the most popular places to shop—including four grocery stores—are all in the center of the city, to name just a few key places.

In order for us to know when personal opinion is being used in contrast to objective information, we need to think about two things; the first, the grammatical use of the personal pronouns, which allow us to know if the language being used by the writer is subjective and personal, or academic and objective and the second is, the way that the writer exposes the information, whether it communicates objective and provable data, or if it is evident that the information springs from personal views and perceptions. Grammatically, when an author uses the first, or second, singular or plural pronouns (I, you, our, we), they are establishing that their sentence is not merely academic and objective, but rather an expression of a personal stance on a topic. In this particular case, given these two characteristics, we would have to choose option B: We need to ask for a change at this critical juncture, as our city rapidly expands at an unprecedented rate because the information put forth in this sentence exposes the thoughts and reactions of the writer towards an objective situation, instead of merely stating verifiable fact.

Do you think people rely too much or too little on body language when communicating? Why?

Body language during communication can mean many things, the person might want to see if the person is following along to what they are saying or they just feel as if they are not communicating properly if its not used. With that said not a lot of people use body language, most people who seems to use it are speech givers, or public talkers. Maybe its a nervous habit for some, but its not a reliance so no I don't believe they do.

Read the sentences. The siblings were like cats and dogs when left alone together. As a result, the babysitter was careful to keep them separated as much as possible. The author most likely uses the simile to emphasize that A. the siblings were unusually hairy. B. the siblings did not get along well. C. the babysitter was not fond of animals. D. the babysitter was actually taking care of animals.

The author most likely uses the similie, "The siblings were like cats and dogs," to emphasize that the siblings did not get along well (B).

Even though there are cats and dogs that get along well, generally they are like fire and ice, complete opposites. Cats and dogs do not get along and apparently neither do these siblings. The author uses the similie to give the reader more imagery than simply stating the siblings don't get along.

Read the excerpt from A Vindication of the Rights of Woman. I have repeatedly asserted, and produced what appeared to me irrefragable arguments drawn from matters of fact, to prove my assertion, that women cannot, by force, be confined to domestic concerns; for they will, however ignorant, intermeddle with more weighty affairs, neglecting private duties only to disturb, by cunning tricks, the orderly plans of reason which rise above their comprehension. This idea enhances Wollstonecraft’s argument by insisting that women deserve to be educated despite their inferior capacity for learning. suggesting that women’s natural curiosity will lead to trickery if it is not nurtured through education. asserting that domestic chores offer fulfillment because they require a vast knowledge of the world. claiming that women who excel in domestic roles should be called upon to serve as world leaders.

This idea enhances Wollstonecraft’s argument by suggesting that women’s natural curiosity will lead to trickery if it is not nurtured through education.

A Vindication of the Rights of Woman is an exposition on overcoming the oppression and denial of the women in the society. It is a dedication to Charles. M. Talleyrand whose views on women education to Wollstonecraft were repugnant. She blamed the condition of adult women due to the negligence of girl's education. The women in the society only care about being attractive, modest and elegant. They are deprived to defend their fundamental rights and are treated as subordinates.

In her argument, she describes ways in which women combine their silliness. Their silliness includes visiting fortune tellers, reading a stupid novel, rivalries with women, and so forth. Due to women's low status and no education results in women's faults and not due to natural deficiency.
