In Modern Era literature, England has played an distinct role in the world. The British Poetry Revival proves that English poets are competitors to American writers. Several other English authors have established their nation's personality through their prose works. Shelley, Carroll, and Poe among others have introduced new interests in science and gothic moods. These interests have shaped trends that can be certified as English influence.

According to Swift, what was the purpose of publishing Gulliver's Travels? A. He wanted to make fun of the upper class of England and their practices. B. He wanted to insult political officials so English society would call for their executions. C. He wanted to entertain readers with a funny and heartwarming story highlighting English characters. D. He wanted to correct human failings and remind people of basic human kindnesses

Jonathan Swift wittily wrote "Travels to Several Nations of the World" as a satire to depict the way kings governed and how society was constructed. By describing the advances in the nations that Gulliver visits and the great manners that smart horses can demonstrate, it is possible to say that he wanted to correct human failings and remind people of basic human kindness.

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.

QUESTION POSTED AT 28/03/2020 - 12:39 PM

1. Achilles agrees with Ajax that he is clinging to his anger over Agamemnon's insult. Many of the choices Achilles makes are based on that anger. However, when Achilles sends Patroclus into the fray, he advises him to drive back the Trojans but to stay away from the city's walls, lest he be killed. These actions give depth to Achilles. Describe Achilles based on his actions and his interactions with others. Use specific details from the text to support your answer.

1. based on his actions, Achilles seems to be brave by warning Patroclus and helping him so that he would not lose his life. ( Since you did not provide the text for this answer, just search for some parts in the passage that matches this description.)
2. He has been willing to sacrifice his life for his pride. Since Achilles wants to be the hero so much, he puts his life on the line all because of his pride. His pride causes him to act brave and seem fearless but his pride is slowly eating away at him. Because of this, his pride could just be his downfall if it continues.
3. Because of all his pride and wanting to be the hero in everything to save everyone and to be the star, he went against something he could just not beat because of his pride. His pride caused his downfall.

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.

2.Read the following paragraph found in the selection from "From Emperor to Citizen." The "Articles for Favorable Treatment" stipulated that I could live temporarily in the Imperial Palace without fixing any definite time limit. Apart from three large halls that were handed over to the Republic, the rest of the Forbidden City continued to belong to the Imperial Palace. It was in this tiny world that I was to spend the most absurd childhood possible until I was driven out by the soldiers of the National Army in 1924. I call it absurd because at a time when China was called a republic and mankind had advanced into the twentieth century, I was still living the life of an emperor, breathing the dust of the nineteenth century. After reading this paragraph, what can the reader most likely conclude about China? A. It is a country that is defined by strict rules.***** B. It is a country that favors tradition over progress. C. It is a country that honors its royalty with extravagant living. D. It is a country that struggled to find its place in a global society. I think the answer is either A or B but I'm not sure. What do you guys think?

Answer:

B. It is a country that favors tradition over progress.  

Explanation:

The text claims that China wanted to keep the traditions of the nineteenth century, even if the world was in the twentieth century and China has shown a promising breakthrough, whether in technology, government, or any other situation in the country. The part of the excerpt that makes clear that China is a country that favors the tradition of progress, is the passage: " I call it absurd because at a time when China was called a republic and mankind had advanced into the twentieth century, I was still living the life of an emperor, breathing the dust of the nineteenth century.

What is the best way for the student to revise the essay? The student should replace familiar language with more accessible language. The student should replace scholarly language with informal language. The student should replace formal language with more familiar language. The student should replace informal language with formal language.

The answer is D: The student should replace informal language with formal language.

All forms of academic writing, like an essay, should strive to always use formal language and avoid informal language. The latter is a form of language commonly used in conversation where clarity and precision are not necessary since the listener can always ask for clarification. Formal language, on the other hand, is aimed at accuracy and clarity in conveying distinct and non-ambiguous thoughts, arguments, and thesis, through sentences that are as meaningful as possible and require no further explanation or clarification. Revision of an essay should always consider this.

Which words accurately describe Janie’s childhood experience under the pear tree in Their Eyes Were Watching God? Select all that apply. challenging disturbing inspirational mystical

Answer:

  • Challenging
  • Inspirational

Explanation:

Janie resists order: she is black however parades her Caucasian-like straight hair, which originates from her blended parentage; she is a lady yet resists gender stereotypes by demanding her independence and wearing overalls.

Behind her disobedience are interest and certainty that drives her to encounter the world and become aware of her connection to it. Some portion of Janie's development rests in her capacity to understand that others' pitilessness toward her or their failure to comprehend her stems not from malevolence but rather from their childhood or restricted point of view.
