Which literary element is responsible for the change of tone in the last couplet of the poem? a)diction b)irony c)imagery d)syntax It was now deep dusk in the forest, and deepest in that part of it where these two were journeying. As nearly as could be discerned, the second traveller was about fifty years old, apparently in the same rank of life as Goodman Brown, and bearing a considerable resemblance to him, though perhaps more in expression than features. Still they might have been taken for father and son. And yet, though the elder person was as simply clad as the younger, and as simple in manner too, he had an indescribable air of one who knew the world, and who would not have felt abashed at the governor's dinner table or in King William's court, were it possible that his affairs should call him thither. But the only thing about him that could be fixed upon as remarkable was his staff, which bore the likeness of a great black snake, so curiously wrought that it might almost be seen to twist and wriggle itself like a living serpent. This, of course, must have been an ocular deception, assisted by the uncertain light. "Come, Goodman Brown," cried his fellow-traveller, "this is a dull pace for the beginning of a journey. Take my staff, if you are so soon weary." "Friend," said the other, exchanging his slow pace for a full stop, "having kept covenant by meeting thee here, it is my purpose now to return whence I came. I have scruples touching the matter thou wot'st of." "Sayest thou so?" replied he of the serpent, smiling apart. "Let us walk on, nevertheless, reasoning as we go; and if I convince thee not thou shalt turn back. We are but a little way in the forest yet." "Too far! too far!" exclaimed the goodman, unconsciously resuming his walk. "My father never went into the woods on such an errand, nor his father before him. We have been a race of honest men and good Christians since the days of the martyrs; and shall I be the first of the name of Brown that ever took this path and kept"

The correct answer to this question is letter "b) Irony." The literary element that is responsible for the change of tone in the last couplet of the poem is irony. By definition, irony refers to the state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often amusing as a result.

How you can encourage your friends to give more improtance to knowledge than marks?

I would always advise my friend that it is necessary to study all subjects in depth and perform well in the examinations to enable him to carry out higher studies in order to have a stable working career. But, at the same time, I'd advise him that merely obtaining good marks is not the barometer of gaining knowledge. Attaining knowledge on diverse things is most important for a human person.
My advice to my friend would be acquiring knowledge by reading books on diverse subjects, learning about various matters by watching television channels like National Geographic, History Channel, Travel & Living and so on. But, first of all, he should know most things about his own country. With the advent of the internet and satellite television, gathering knowledge has become easy; he should make use of these facilities.
Even for passing examinations, he must read and understand the various subjects and topics rather than learn by rote, simply memorising without understanding is not good.

QUESTION POSTED AT 20/02/2020 - 11:17 PM

How would you characterize the personality of the narrator, based on what you have read in the general prologue??

The character of Chaucer serves as our guide to the action. Sometimes Chaucer narrates like he's really there in the tavern, just meeting these pilgrims for the first time, and we feel like we're right there with him. At other times, though, Chaucer is a narrator who seems to know way more than he should. For example, he tells us that, when the Shipman wins a fight, he murders the loser by throwing him overboard, or that the Reeve is stealing from his master. Now is that really something these people would tell Chaucer on first meeting him? And how does Chaucer know so many details of the pilgrims' day-to-day lives? At these moments, Chaucer acts much more like an omniscient, or all-knowing, narrator, than one who's truly in the heat of the action. The reason for this choice could be that verisimilitude, or making things seem like real life, was not as important to a medieval author as it is to authors today. Instead, the narrator might choose to tell whatever he wants to tell to serve the purposes of characterization.

QUESTION POSTED AT 20/02/2020 - 10:40 PM

Read the excerpt from E.O. Wilson’s “The Environmental Ethic.” Why should we care? What difference does it make if some species are extinguished, if even half of all the species on earth disappear? Let me count the ways. New sources of scientific information will be lost. Vast potential biological wealth will be destroyed. Still undeveloped medicines, crops, pharmaceuticals, timber, fibers, pulp, soil-restoring vegetation, petroleum substitutes, and other products and amenities will never come to light. It is fashionable in some quarters to wave aside the small and obscure, the bugs and weeds, forgetting that an obscure moth from Latin America saved Australia’s pastureland from overgrowth by cactus, that the rosy periwinkle provided the cure for Hodgkin’s disease and childhood lymphocytic leukemia, that the bark of the Pacific yew offers hope for victims of ovarian and breast cancer, that a chemical from the saliva of leeches dissolves blood clots during surgery, and so on down a roster already grown long and illustrious despite the limited research addressed to it. Which techniques does Wilson use in this excerpt to convey important information to his readers? Wilson uses humorous anecdotes that make the information more interesting. Wilson uses metaphors that appeal to a wide range of the reader’s senses. Wilson relates the significance of the information directly to the reader’s life. Wilson refers to empirical statistics to relate the importance of his message.

In the excerpt provided in the question from "The Environmental Ethic" by E.O Wilson, the author is assessing the vast problems the human specie will face if more species become extinct.

The technique that Wilson uses in the excerpt provided to convey important information to his readers is by using metaphors that appeal to a wide range of the reader's senses. An example of this would be when he uses the term "potential biological wealth will be destroyed" referring to the negative impact on biology that the extinction of a specie will have. Or "Still undeveloped medicines, crops,..., will never come to light" to asses how multiple positive elements on the Earth will not be produced as a consequence of extinction. By using these metaphors, Wilson gets to explain a rather difficult and technical problem to a bigger audience, by appealing to their senses and common sense.

Read the excerpt from chapter 11 of The Awakening. “Edna, dear, are you not coming in soon?” he asked again, this time fondly, with a note of entreaty. “No, I am going to stay out here.” “This is more than folly,” he blurted out. “I can’t permit you to stay out there all night. You must come in the house instantly.” Which best explains how the excerpt is an example of realism? The conversation is a symbolic criticism of marriage. The conversation imitates conversations in real life. The conversation is not one that could occur in reality. The conversation has an underlying tone of anger.

Answer: B) The conversation imitates conversations in real life.

Explanation: In literature, realism is a movement that started in France in the nineteenth century, and the authors of the movement tried to represent the everyday-situations as they were (like relationships, or familie issues), without making them more beautiful or using fantastic elements. In this case, the excerpt is an example of realism because it imitates a real conversation between a married couple.

My question is how can this be poetry? You and I, we're like fireworks and symphonies exploding in the sky With you, I'm alive Like all the missing pieces of my heart, they finally collide So stop time right here in the moonlight 'Cause I don't ever wanna close my eyes Without you, I feel broke Like I'm half of a whole Without you, I've got no hand to hold Without you, I feel torn Like a sail in a storm Without you, I'm just a sad song I'm just a sad song With you, I fall It's like I'm leaving all my past and silhouettes up on the wall With you, I'm a beautiful mess It's like we're standing hand and hand with all our fears up on the edge So stop time right here in the moonlight 'Cause I don't ever wanna close my eyes Without you, I feel broke Like I'm half of a whole Without you, I've got no hand to hold Without you, I feel torn Like a sail in a storm Without you, I'm just a sad song You're the perfect melody The only harmony I wanna hear You're my favorite part of me With you standing next to me I've got nothing to fear Without you, I feel broke Like I'm half of a whole Without you, I've got no hand to hold Without you, I feel torn Like a sail in a storm Without you, I'm just a sad song Without you, I feel broke Like I'm half of a whole Without you, I've got no hand to hold Without you, I feel torn Like a sail in a storm Without you, I'm just a sad song, I'm just a sad song

That song is not poetry, it is using another form of affection to show how hard love can truly be. I know it must sound stupid but some words don't go right like words do in a poem. It shows that true love isn't based on just a poem but how another person see you in their eyes
