The best choice here is C. unreliable narrators are often used to confuse the reader, or keep them on their toes. reliable narrators see things clearly and relay events truthfully, but unreliable narrators see things from a warped point of view that can keep readers in the dark.

we don't necessarily always feel sorry for unreliable narrators; sometimes their misfortune is self-inflicted (A). unreliable narrators only give you their warped perspective, and they could potentially alter or misinterpret the actions of other characters, so choice B is incorrect. while unreliable narrators might irritate readers because they prove to be confusing, that isn't their sole effect on a reader. their warped perspective is meant to make you question them, and try to look for hidden meanings or hints.

In The Raven, to you personally, what does the Raven represent? (this is a personal question that id like YOUR opinion on) I need real opinions for this essay pls make it a long answer...

Some of the reasons that Poe chose this bird instead of a parrot is because it has a melancholy tone, it picks carcasses, it is a sign of ill-omen, and it is black. Black is a reminder of sorrow, darkness, evil, death, lack of insight, and mourning. These are all disturbing attributes of this bird and these show that a raven is not something you would want at your door in the middle of the night. When Poe first started writing this poem, he knew he had to have a bird that could talk, yet was non-sentient, non-thinking, and non-reasoning. So he had the choice of a parrot or a raven. As you can tell from above, the raven is more fitting for his intention.

I hope no one who reads this book has been quite as miserable as Susan and Lucy were that night; but if you have been…you will know that there comes in the end a sort of quietness.

Lewis This story is written from the perspective of _____. Susan and Lucy the narrator neither the narrator nor Susan and Lucy

Answer:

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.

Read the sentence. Past history has taught our community that effective solutions occur only after long thought. Revise the sentence to eliminate redundancy.

Answer:

"History has taught our community that effective solutions occur only after long thought."

Explanation:

In order to eliminate redundancy in this sentence, we need to eliminate the word "past" at the beginning of the sentence. This is because the word is describing "history," but we already know that history refers to the past, which means we do not need this description. Redundancy refers to the use of words that provide information that is unimportant or obsolete because it was already provided in some other way.
