Perspective or point of view is described as the approach through which the author communicates his emotions or point of view either himself or through the characters of the story.

Wendy should take short breaks while writing the draft so:

* Wendy can read what she has written after a break and plan the best way to continue.

* Wendy can get a better perspective of what needs to be included in her essay and how it should be presented.


It is suggested that Wendy should tale short breaks while she is writing the draft that means that she has not finished it, revisions are made until the writer finishes the draft, so she can just read it to keep on going with the rest, and after a little break she has a fresh vision of the work she is making and she can improve it before finishing it.

Which statement best describes Emily Dickinson and her poetic style? a) Dickinson writes unusual titles for her poems. b) Dickinson writes with creative punctuation. c) Dickinson writes poems that do not rhyme. d) Dickinson writes from a third-person point of view.

To the best of my knowledge the right option is B; Dickinson writes with creative punctuation.

Dickinson most often punctuated her poems with dashes, rather than the more common array of periods, commas, and other punctuation marks.  She also capitalized interior words, not just words at the beginning of a line.

Generally, Dickinson´s poems lack a tittle.Her poems are now generally known by their first lines or by the numbers assigned to them by posthumous editor. Furthermore, she used to write in first person as in most lyric poetry.

Besides, sometimes she broke some of her poems into stanzas, but in others, there were no stanza breaks.

What style was "The Nun's Priest Tale" written in?




The options of this question are:

  • mock-heroic
  • epic
  • elegiac
  • heroic

This tale is written as a mock-heroic. This is because the tale adopts the stylistic conventions of grand epics, but makes fun of them. The author uses words and a style that usually belongs to great, fantastic stories, but in fact tells a very simple story in a modest setting. The speaker describes a rooster named Chanticleer as an animal with qualities that normally belong to noble knights. Moreover, the hen Lady Pertelote is described in the way a pure and gracious maiden would normally have been described in a Medieval romance.

Of our own vallies: so I will begin

A simile is a figurative language or a metaphor used to describe events, places, people, animals, ideas, etc. by making comparisons. We can easily identify it in texts or speeches that uses the words "like", "as", or "as in", to show similarity, and make the work more colorful, interesting and appealing.

In the excerpt, the narrator describes what is growing inside of them, which is fresh, by comparing it to the green of their valleys. Perhaps, the "green of our vallies" reminds the narrator of freshness, life, and growth.

In at least 100 words, analyze how an action in the poem either affects or does not affect the significance of the meaning in Dickinson’s “Because I could not stop for Death.” Use details from the poem to support your response.

One of the actions in the poem that affects the significance of its meaning is the house that Dickinson describes in the following lines:

"We paused before a House that seemed

A Swelling of the Ground – "

In this description, we learn that the carriage that was taking her with death and immortality stops in front of a house. However, the house is underground, and from above it is nothing more than a mound in the ground. This is meant to be a grave, and it becomes the resting place of the author. However, it does not eliminate the concept of immortality, which is also riding on the carriage. We see that the speaker is still aware of time, and is still waiting for the moment of salvation and resurrection.

    It's normally made of a beginning, middle and end in other words, Introduction, Body and Conclusion. A narrative can also include any form of expression common to any type of poem e.g typographic elements, metaphors, irony e.t.c All these elements must help the narrative it self by propelling the action to rise to climax.

    A narrative can be long or short, as long as they can tell a story.
