In "Landscape with the Fall of Icarus", Williams mentions "a splash quite unnoticed.” Which words from Auden’s "Musée des Beaux Arts" best illustrate this idea of people’s distraction and indifference? A) they were never wrong B) how well they understood C) walking dully along D) passionately waiting

I really enjoy this poem. I believe the best answer would be C, "walking dully along." People who are walking dully along are not acting as if something important or startling just happened. This suggests that they did not notice the fall of Icarus. The other options are not as well suited to distraction or indifference. Hope this helps.

In a spiritual, the part sung by the chorus seldom changed because the chorus a. was an African tradition. c. played the role of the Lord. b. sang the refrain. d. let everyone take part.

The chorus sang the refrain. In most songs, the "chorus" refers to the part that is repeated. It does not necessarily mean that everyone took part, so you can go ahead and rule out option D. There is also no indication that the chorus took the part of the Lord, so you can also eliminate that option. Option A is too broad, so that can also be eliminated, leaving you only one answer. Hope this helps.

When arranging his list of virtues, the author compares himself to one “who, having a garden to weed, does not attempt to eradicate all the bad herbs at once . . . but works on one of the beds at a time.” Which of his own actions does he mean this comparison to illustrate? a. never doing two things at once b. eating only moderate amounts c. being good to his friends and hard on his enemies d. trying to master one virtue at a time

Answer:

D. Trying to master one virtue at a time.

Explanation:

The usage of metaphors is a common technique for the authors to elaborate, illustrate and emphasize their message more effectively. Similarly, here also the author employs the metaphor of weeds to exemplify the intended qualities that he feels of himself and suggests that one should pursue and master one virtue at a time. He says that if someone has a garden to weed(bad habits or deeds to rectify), it doesn't imply that one would eradicate all the bad herb(follies) at one time. But rather one should go step by step to eradicate these evils. Thus, this comparison illustrates his attempt to master one virtue at a time.
