Enters a classroom in the university during a storm 9.) Who is the speaker of the following quote: "I wish that I were to die with you; I cannot live in this world of misery"? A.) The creature B.) Victor C.) Elizabeth

1. The correct answer is B. Remorseful. At the beginning, Victor was enthusiastic and full of hope that his scientific achievement would make the world better. However, soon he realizes that he has brought a misery not only upon himself, but the world at large. It brings him a feeling of devastation and great remorse, which will haunt him until the end of his days.

2. The correct answer is C. Both A and B. The general point of view is first person; the story about Frankenstein is told by Captain Robert, and the story within the story is told by Frankenstein himself. However, Frankenstein’s story is actually a great flashback on his personal history and all that happened to him.

3. The correct answer is C. Letters. The very name “epistolary” derives from the word epistle, which means a personal document written to another person. The whole novel about Frankenstein is actually part of a written correspondence between Captain Robert Walton and his sister Margaret. Even Frankenstein’s own story is incorporated into one of those letters. Ever since the Enlightenment (mid-18th century), epistolary novels were very popular and widely read.

4. The correct answer is A. Anatomy. The term “natural philosophy” referred, among others, to anatomy, long before the development of modern natural sciences. It was, in a way, a middle ground of what we today call humanistic and natural science. It tried to explain complex issues of human body and existence, trying to find answers to most pertinent of all questions: the phenomena of life and death.

6. The correct answer is B. Victor is afraid that it would lead to Robert’s destruction and misery. He tells him all about the creature and their full history. But he never reveals him how he managed to create him in the first place. Victor is fully determined that his secret should die with him, so as not to bring further misery. From his present perspective, it is an unholy and wretched thing, and he condemns his own scientific curiosity that had brought him to that discovery.

7. The correct answer is A. Pride. Victor is horrified and disgusted by the creature, who is a weird and uncanny mix between a human and a thorough inversion of a human – he is taller and far stronger than “normal” humans, but his face and features are disfigured and grotesque. Victor instantly realizes that this was not what he had hoped for. Far from being proud because of his achievement, he grows literally sick and takes months to recover.

8. The correct answer is B. Is walking during a storm and lightning flashes. Victor is roaming the woods where his brother William was recently strangled to death. All of a sudden, a lightning flashes and illuminates a giant, deformed figure. Victor instantly realizes that it must be his creature, and shudders at the thought that it must have been responsible for his brother’s death.

9. The correct answer is C. Elizabeth. At the moment, Victor and Elizabeth are visiting Justine in her prison cell. She is to be executed the following day because she admitted to killing William, which she actually didn’t do. Victor knows the truth and who the real culprit is, but won’t tell anyone for the fear of being considered mad. He and Elizabeth thoroughly sympathize with Justine, and even Elizabeth believes that she is completely innocent, even though there is no proof for that. Elizabeth feels so bad that she declares she would rather share Justine’s fate than live in the cruel world without justice.

Which best identifies an effect of the use of first person point of view in the story gumption? A. it helps the reader to invest in the main character, Sylvester. B it allows the reader to understand all of the character's thoughts. C. It creates a feeling of objective for the reader. D it reveals the story's theme

The correct answer is A.

First person point of view is a set of linguistic forms (such as verb forms, pronouns, and inflectional affixes) referring to the speaker or writer of the utterance in which they occur. This point of view is generally limited in that the audience only experiences what the speaker/narrator himself experiences. In this kind of narrative, you are inside a character’s head, watching the story unfold through that character’s eyes.

QUESTION POSTED AT 18/02/2020 - 11:37 PM

1. Which of the following best states a theme of Romeo and Juliet? • Love paves the way for peace. • The power of nature overcomes the will of man. • Love is a gentle force that brings families together. • Actions in haste can bring about destruction. 2. In Act IV, Scene 1 of Romeo and Juliet, Paris tells Friar Lawrence, "Immoderately she weeps for Tybalt's death, / And therefore have I little talked of love." What makes Paris's comment an example of dramatic irony? • Juliet is saddened by the death of Tybalt. • Juliet is actually weeping over Romeo's banishment. • Juliet is pretending to cry in order to avoid seeing Paris. • Juliet was in love with her cousin Tybalt. 3. In Romeo and Juliet, which of the following illustrates Shakespeare's use of comic relief? • A servant explains to Capulet that cooks should lick their own fingers. • Capulet believes that Juliet is dead when she is really only sleeping. • "Honest good fellows, ah, put up, put up; For well you know this is a pitiful case." • A nurse claims to be too tired to give Juliet Romeo's message. 4. Read the following line from Romeo's monologue in Act II, Scene 2 of Romeo and Juliet: But soft! what light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun! What is Romeo saying in this passage? • Romeo has broken the window even though he threw a rock softly. • Juliet is standing in the east window. • Juliet's beauty shines like the sun. • Romeo has never been in love before. 5. Read the following line from Act IV, Scene 5 of Romeo and Juliet, when Capulet speaks of his daughter’s apparent death: Death lies on her like an untimely frost Upon the sweetest flower of all the field. How does Shakespeare use a simile to emphasize the tragedy of the apparent death? • By comparing Juliet to a flower, Capulet emphasizes that she is too young to die. • By comparing Juliet to a flower, Capulet emphasizes that she is too beautiful to die. • By comparing Juliet to a flower with frost on it, Capulet emphasizes that Juliet’s body is cold. • By comparing Juliet to a flower with frost on it, Capulet emphasizes that he has lost the best daughter in the land.

1. Actions in haste can bring about destruction.

Many events in the story happen because of the impulsivity of the characters. Tybalt promises to seek revenge on Romeo because he's quick to anger when Romeo shows up at the Capulet party. Romeo is quick to kill Tybalt after the death of Mercutio. Juliet is quick to kill herself (even though she just pretends at first) when Romeo is banished. Romeo is quick to kill himself when he hears that Juliet is dead. Juliet then actually kills herself immediately after seeing Romeo dead. All this death is destruction.

2. Juliet is actually weeping over Romeo's banishment.

Paris thinks that Juliet is weeping over Tybalt's death, but really it's Romeo's banishment because of Tybalt's death. Paris thinks that Juliet is to distraught to think of love and yet the person she thinks of is her love.

3. A nurse claims to be too tired to give Juliet Romeo's message.

The nurse drags out the message she brings back to Juliet by saying she is so out of breath she can't deliver the message. Juliet tells her if you have enough breath to tell me your out of breath you can give me the message! The nurse keeps delaying because she enjoys the attention she is getting from Juliet.

4. Juliet's beauty shines like the sun.

It's Shakespeare, he wouldn't use this beautiful imagery to simply say that Juliet is standing at the window...there's always more. Also, Romeo is in love with Juliet, his descriptive language is used to show how his world revolves around Juliet, his sun.

5. By comparing Juliet to a flower, Capulet emphasizes that she is too beautiful to die.

In the lines, he describes the flower as sweetest which shows its beauty. The flower is not shown to have any age so this eliminates the second best option.

F. Scott Fitzgerald's decision to write The Great Gatsby from Nick Carraway's point of view means that readers __________. Question 5 options: are not likely to be interested in the story because Nick is the novel's least interesting character never learn what happens to Gatsby after Myrtle Wilson's death have to choose whether or not to believe Nick's side of the story or Gatsby's side only know what Nick tells them and have their opinions shaped by him

Answer:

Only know what Nick tells them and have their opinions shaped by him.

Explanation:

F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby" tells the story of Jay Gatsby, though from the point of view of a different character Nick Carraway. Although the protagonist of the story is Jay and even the title is his name, the whole story was narrated by jay's neighbor Nick. It is through Nick that we know of the scenes and events, limiting us to the inner feelings of the characters. The point of view of the whole plot is from Nick's perspective, which limits our view/access only through what he tells us. Except when the other characters reveal their feelings to him, we have no knowledge of what the other characters feel or think.

Thus, the author, Fitzgerald's decision to write the story from Nick's point of view means that the readers only know what Nick tells us. Also, whatever opinions that may have come up will all be shaped by Nick, for we view the story from his eyes and have no access to the other characters' feelings to think otherwise.

Which line from the poem contains a metaphor? Worry makes an ache— stomach swims, head throbs . . . It’s an unwanted guest Like an empty piggy bank

A metaphor compares things WITHOUT using like or as. similes use like or as.
the first one, with "stomach swims", seems like personification,giving an object human qualities.
I would go with the second one, some assume a simile to branch underneath metaphor, I'd assume.
the first one isn't comparing anything, so it's probably the second choice.
