One element of lyric poetry is personal reflection. Which lines in this poem most clearly illustrate that element? I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud by William Wordsworth I wandered lonely as a cloud That floats on high o'er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of golden daffodils; Beside the lake, beneath the trees, Fluttering and dancing in the breeze. Continuous as the stars that shine And twinkle on the milky way, They stretched in never-ending line Along the margin of a bay: Ten thousand saw I at a glance, Tossing their heads in sprightly dance. The waves beside them danced; but they Out-did the sparkling waves in glee: A poet could not but be gay, In such a jocund company: I gazed—and gazed—but little thought What wealth the show to me had brought: For oft, when on my couch I lie In vacant or in pensive mood, They flash upon that inward eye Which is the bliss of solitude; And then my heart with pleasure fills, And dances with the daffodils.

Personal reflection into Lyric poetry expresses emotions as lyric poetry always does, but it also reflects on those feelings and makesan analysis of them.

The lines that best represent that element in this poem are:

I gazed—and gazed—but little thought

What wealth the show to me had brought:

He reflects about the wonders he has seen and how they're going to go on with him through his memories at any time, how come did he get this huge gift?

Which literary element is responsible for the change of tone in the last couplet of the poem? a)diction b)irony c)imagery d)syntax It was now deep dusk in the forest, and deepest in that part of it where these two were journeying. As nearly as could be discerned, the second traveller was about fifty years old, apparently in the same rank of life as Goodman Brown, and bearing a considerable resemblance to him, though perhaps more in expression than features. Still they might have been taken for father and son. And yet, though the elder person was as simply clad as the younger, and as simple in manner too, he had an indescribable air of one who knew the world, and who would not have felt abashed at the governor's dinner table or in King William's court, were it possible that his affairs should call him thither. But the only thing about him that could be fixed upon as remarkable was his staff, which bore the likeness of a great black snake, so curiously wrought that it might almost be seen to twist and wriggle itself like a living serpent. This, of course, must have been an ocular deception, assisted by the uncertain light. "Come, Goodman Brown," cried his fellow-traveller, "this is a dull pace for the beginning of a journey. Take my staff, if you are so soon weary." "Friend," said the other, exchanging his slow pace for a full stop, "having kept covenant by meeting thee here, it is my purpose now to return whence I came. I have scruples touching the matter thou wot'st of." "Sayest thou so?" replied he of the serpent, smiling apart. "Let us walk on, nevertheless, reasoning as we go; and if I convince thee not thou shalt turn back. We are but a little way in the forest yet." "Too far! too far!" exclaimed the goodman, unconsciously resuming his walk. "My father never went into the woods on such an errand, nor his father before him. We have been a race of honest men and good Christians since the days of the martyrs; and shall I be the first of the name of Brown that ever took this path and kept"

The correct answer to this question is letter "b) Irony." The literary element that is responsible for the change of tone in the last couplet of the poem is irony. By definition, irony refers to the state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often amusing as a result.

Antecedent is an expression that gives meaning to the word coming after that. For example, I was late to the meeting because police held me for speeding. In this sentence, pronoun me is an explained word which explain another pronoun - I. Antecedent has been used correctly in this sentence. In this question, the first option is correct. Antecedent has been used incorrectly in the second sentence because it's unclear who is considered with the pronoun he.

Which of the following was not an important aspect of American Romanticism? reason imagination intuition nature Emerson and Thoreau both believe that society __________. provides people with important opportunities prevents people from being free encourages people to be unique is the best place to gain an education Why does the speaker appeal to time and nature in "Concord Hymn"? to question their presence in the world to urge them to wash away anything man-made to ask them to preserve the memorial to encourage readers to be buried nearby

1. Reason.

The Romantic movement is generally seen as a reaction against the emphasis on reason that was characteristic of the Enlightenment. Therefore, this was not a significant element of American Romanticism.

2. Prevents people from being free.

Both authors believe that society can often limit people's freedom by not allowing them to become themselves. Therefore, they both encourage self-reliance and independence.

3. To ask them to preserve the memorial.

The author is asking Time and Nature to spare the memorial, and not damage it, so that future generations will remember what happened during the Battle of Concord. This is obvious in the last stanza:

Spirit, that made those heroes dare,

To die, and leave their children free,

Bid Time and Nature gently spare

The shaft we raise to them and thee.

Read the following paragraph and answer the question that follows. As soon as she got her console out of the package, she pressed the power switch. Within seconds, the green light appeared, and a smile crept across Jessica's face. This was the day she had been waiting for. Barely stifling laughter of excitement, she grabbed her controller and pressed the Home button. Instantly a blue screen welcomed her to her new system and asked whether she was interested in Movies, Games, Internet, or Chat. Jessica was so thrilled she didn't know which one to pick first! Which point of view does this author use? A) Objective B) Limited Omniscient C) Omniscient D) First person

Answer: The right answer is the B) Limited Omniscient.

Explanation: Just to elaborate a little on the answer, it can be added that the narrator, who is not one of the characters in the story (so option D should be unhesitatingly discarded), is telling the story from the viewpoint of Jessica, who is one of the characters — note that he or she uses third-person pronouns such as "she" and "her." Thanks to the narrator, we know what she is doing, thinking, seeing, and feeling. That is why we say that the point of view is omniscent (from the Latin omnis, "everything" and sciens, -entis, "who knows"). However, the narrator is only seeing into Jessica's mind, not into the minds of all the characters, and, for that reason, his or her point of view is limited. Since the narrator can see into Jessica's mind, and not only describe what she does, his or her point of view is not objective, so option A should also be discarded.
