What did Shakespeare use to write the play Macbeth?

Several factors point to the Bard's attempt at impressing James I. The basis of the play comes from Scottish history; the real Macbeth, one of James' ancestors, ruled from 1040 to 1057. It explores similar themes to James' writings about the ideal king as one who does his duty to God and country with spotless integrity. The witches relate to James' interest in the supernatural and involvement in witch trials while ruling in Scotland. Even though Shakespeare portrays the witches as evil and emissaries of the devil, they pay complements to James in the prediction of Macbeth's long line of descendants to serve on the throne.

The oldest printed text of "Macbeth" is in the First Folio from 1623. By this time, there were significant alterations to the play, including two additional songs from Thomas Middleton's play "The Witch" (1615). Scholars believe these additions represent the audience's interest in the scenes from Shakespeare's original work; however, they are not indicators of his attempts at impressing the new king.

Which of the sentences below uses the word turned as a linking verb? (1 point)The milk turned sour after sitting out on the counter overnight. She turned the doorknob but the door was locked. Have you turned in your writing assignment yet?

Answer: The sentence that uses "turned" as a linking verb is the first one: "The milk turned sour after sitting out on the counter overnight".

Explanation: A linking verb is a verb that connects the subject of a sentence to a word or group of words that provide additional information about it. Therefore, linking verbs do not indicate an action and they are usually followed by an adjective. The verb "turn" can be a linking verb, but it can also be used as a transitive verb and an intransitive verb. In the sentence "The milk turned sour after sitting out on the counter overnight", "turn" has been used as a linking verb since it is connecting the subject ("The milk") to an adjective that describes it ("sour"). In other words, "turn" is not showing an action: it is establishing a relationship between two elements. In contrast, in the other two sentences ("She turned the doorknob but the door was locked" and "Have you turned in your writing assignment yet?"), "turned" has been used as a transitive verb.

The Ides of March was a date in the Roman calendar that corresponds to the 15th of March. This was an important date that was celebrated with festivals and religious observances. However, the date is well-known because it was the date the assassination of Julius Caesar took place.

The following question refers to “The Philosophy of Composition” by Edgar Allan Poe and On Writing by Stephen King. Which statement is false? a. “The Philosophy of Composition” uses more effective appeals to logos than On Writing. b. Edgar Allan Poe demonstrates ethos by including references to numerous literary works. c. King’s memoir demonstrates more ethos than Poe’s expository essay. d. In On Writing, King appeals to pathos with imagery and examples.

Answer:

B). Edgar Allan Poe demonstrates ethos by including references to numerous literary works.

Explanation:

As per the question, the statement that asserts a false claim is displayed through the second option as Poe does not involve 'ethos'(ethical appeal) to persuade the readers to believe in his proposed 'theory of a good writer' but he rather employs 'logos' as the persuasive technique(as displayed through option A) to offer significant considerations(for creating a good work).

The other options advocate true claims. Option A is true as 'The Philosophy of Composition' employs 'logos' more effectively than 'On Writing' which uses 'pathos' primarily. Options C and D are also true as King's 'On Writing' in memoir employs more ethos(in comparison to Poe) to establish the credibility and pathos to convince the readers to accept his writing strategies. Thus, option B asserts a false claim.

Imagine you are writing an argument to convince others that people should become vegetarians. You want people to stop eating meat and start eating nuts and beans for protein. Which group of people can you expect to support you without even reading your argument? A. Cattle ranch owners B. Fast food executives C. State level lawmakers D. Animal rights supporters

You'd select the Animal rights supporters because meat is made from animals. And the Animals rights supporters sound like they support the rights of animals. A cattle ranch owner wouldn't help you because they are a steakhouse, in which sells cooked animals. Fast food executives sell animal meats as well so they wouldn't be reliable. And State level lawmakers wouldn't help because it mainly focuses on important political decisions. And so the only reliable source left is D, the Animal rights supporters.
