Match each narrator from the first 3 sections of The Sweet Hereafter with the type of first person narrator they represent. Dolores Driscoll Read Answer Items for Question 1 Billy Ansel Read Answer Items for Question 1 Mitchell Stephens Read Answer Items for Question 1 Answer A. First person major B. First person observer C. First person minor

Answer:

The following are each narrator from the first 3 sections of The Sweet Hereafter with the type of first person narrator they represent:

Dolores Driscoll: First person major

Billy Ansel: First person minor

Mitchell Stephens: First person observer

Explanation:

These three characters are three out of the four narrators that tell the story in the novel "The Sweet Hereafter" written by Russell Banks. They all are first person narrators as they are telling the story in their own voice as it happens through their eyes. Dolores Driscoll is the first person major as she is the main narrator of the story. She was a school driver and was driving the bus school as the accident occurs, therefore making her a key character within the story. Billy Ansel is a first person minor narrator, as he was a witness of the accident and was, with the firefighters, above the first people at the accident scene. Then there is Mitchell Stephens, who acts as a first person observer narrator, as he arrives in Sam Dent to investigate the accident. He is an observer of every person involved in it and is trying to find out exactly what has happened, which makes him an observer of the main characters from an outside perspective.

Ead this excerpt from Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address and then answer the question that follows: (1) Four score and seven years ago, our fathers brought forth upon this continent a new nation: conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war ... testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated ... can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. (2) We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that this nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate ... we cannot consecrate ... we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. The tone of this speech is most similar to which of these? A. A critical review of a work art B.a philosopher body of writing C.an inspirational eulogy at a funeral D.a lecture on the nations historical development

Answer:

C.an inspirational eulogy at a funeral

Explanation:

Abraham Lincoln's speech "The Gettysburg Address," was delivered four months after the battle of Gettysburg, on November 19, 1863. There, President Lincoln joined other speakers and other influential people at a ceremony to dedicate a cemetery at the site of the battle. Thus, the talk is intended to praise fallen soldiers and inspire the nation to go on fighting for the cause.

QUESTION POSTED AT 20/01/2020 - 12:26 PM

The Nile: A Source of Sustenance Sustenance played a crucial role in the founding of Egyptian civilization. The Nile was an unending source of sustenance. The Nile made the land surrounding it extremely fertile when it flooded or was inundated annually. The Egyptians were able to cultivate wheat and crops around the Nile, providing food for the general population. Also, the Nile’s water attracted game, such as water buffalo, and, after the Persians introduced them in the 7th century B.C., camels. These animals could be killed for meat, or could be captured, tamed, and used for ploughing—or in the camels' case, traveling. Water was vital to both people and livestock. The Nile was also a convenient and efficient way of transportation for people and goods. Egypt’s stability was one of the best structured in history. In fact, it might easily have surpassed many modern societies.... Which question would be best to ask before reading the rest of the passage? How did the Nile directly affect the stability of Egypt? How might Egypt’s stability have surpassed many modern societies? Why was the Nile an unending source of substance? How did the Nile get its name?

Why is Nile a source of sustenance?

Nile has a direct effect on the economy of Egypt as it enriches the lives of people which makes their society work.

Egypt's stability surpasses modern societies since its only source is Nile but it has given them a lot unlike modern societies which seek for several resources just to make the economy boom.

It's unending in the sense that it's the longest river, but it's an unending source because of its fertility.

Nile means "river valley" which is also the meaning of the Latin word "nilus". Egyptians call Nile, Ar which means "black" because its sedimentary gives a black hue sometimes.

QUESTION POSTED AT 20/01/2020 - 12:16 PM

Read the following speech excerpt and then select the correct answer to the question below: President George W. Bush’s speech to the troops on the USS Abraham Lincoln Our mission continues. Al-Qaida is wounded, not destroyed. The scattered cells of the terrorist network still operate in many nations, and we know from daily intelligence that they continue to plot against free people. The proliferation of deadly weapons remains a serious danger. The enemies of freedom are not idle, and neither are we. Our government has taken unprecedented measures to defend the homeland — and we will continue to hunt down the enemy before he can strike. The war on terror is not over, yet it is not endless. We do not know the day of final victory, but we have seen the turning of the tide. No act of the terrorists will change our purpose, or weaken our resolve, or alter their fate. Their cause is lost. Free nations will press on to victory. Other nations in history have fought in foreign lands and remained to occupy and exploit. Americans, following a battle, want nothing more than to return home. And that is your direction tonight. After service in the Afghan and Iraqi theaters of war — after 100,000 miles, on the longest carrier deployment in recent history — you are homeward bound. Some of you will see new family members for the first time — 150 babies were born while their fathers were on the Lincoln. Your families are proud of you, and your nation will welcome you. How does the sentence “Our mission continues” support the central idea of the speech? It supports the idea that service people returning home will be called back out quite soon. It supports the main point that this is an ongoing fight that America will not abandon. It challenges the notion that Al-Qaida is an enemy worthy of the human and financial cost of war. It adds to the idea that it is essential to remove any American military presence in other lands.

The best answer to the question above would be the second sentence. The phrase 'Our mission continues' supports the central idea of the speech which is that America's ongoing fight with the terrorists Al-Qaeda will be one that the country will not easily abandon. Other choices are not the main points.

Symbol Read Answer Items for Question 1 Imagery Read Answer Items for Question 1 Metaphor Read Answer Items for Question 1 Simile Read Answer Items for Question 1 Answer A. Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun? B. The fog comes/on little cat feet. C. Plain chipware on a plain and creaking wood, Tin flatware. D. What happens to a dream deferred?

Answer: Symbol: What happens to a dream deferred?, Imagery: Plain chipware on a plain and creaking wood, Tin flatware, Metaphor: The fog comes/on little cat feet and Simile: Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun?

Explanation: A symbol is concept that we can assign to a word to change its literal meaning and making it deeper and more significant. Imagery is the use of descriptive language in order to create a picture in the readers' minds. A metaphor is a direct comparison that doesn't use the words "like" and "as". And a simile is also a comparison but it uses the words "like" or "as." " What happens to a dream deferred?" is an example of a symbol, "Plain chipware on a plain and creaking wood, Tin flatware" is an example of imagery. "The fog comes/on little cat feet" is a metaphor that compares fog with cat feet and "Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun?" is a simile.

Read the excerpt below from act 3.2 of The Tragedy of Julius Caesar and answer the question that follows. BRUTUS: But as he was ambitious, I slew him. . . . Who is here so base that would be a bondman? If any, speak, for him have I offended. Who is here so rude that would not be a Roman? If any, speak, for him have I offended. Who is here so vile that will not love his country? If any, speak, for him have I offended. I pause for a reply. Which rhetorical device does Brutus use in this excerpt? a. antithesis b. paralipsis c. epimone d. metonymy

I reckon that rhetorical device that William Shakespeare used in Brutus’ public speech is a nice example of epimone. Because during this excerpt you can see how Brutus appeals to the listeners by repeating the phrase ‘’If any, speak, for him have I offended.’’ which is a direct significance on the epimone that is considered to be the most used in Shakespeare’s works. Epimone is figure that uses by orator to bring his point in crowd by repetition of the idea in the same words.
