Within the Chain of Being, which statement would most likely be true? A. Women ranked above men. B. Kings ranked above God. C. Noblemen ranked above merchants. D. Servants ranked above demons.

The correct answer is C. Noblemen ranked above merchants

Explanation:

The Chain of Being refers to a hierarchical system that emerged during the Middle Ages and it linked to Christianity, in this system all the beings and elements in life are organized and classified from a state of non-being to being, in this hierarchy God is on the top and it is followed by the angels, later by the demons, the man, the animal, the pants and finally the minerals. Additionally, to this, in each category there are subdivisions and in the case of the man the system follows the medieval social system in which the king is at the top, and it is followed by the nobility, then by the knights and vassals, then by the merchants, artisans and farmers and at the bottom there are the peasants and the serfs, also, men are considered to be over women. Considering this information, the statement that is true is that "Noblemen ranked above merchants" because as part of the medieval social hierarchy which is the one that determined the way men were organized in the Chain of Being, the Nobles were on the second more important position while the merchants were almost at the bottom of the hierarchy.

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.

Which statement best describes Emily Dickinson and her poetic style? a) Dickinson writes unusual titles for her poems. b) Dickinson writes with creative punctuation. c) Dickinson writes poems that do not rhyme. d) Dickinson writes from a third-person point of view.

To the best of my knowledge the right option is B; Dickinson writes with creative punctuation.

Dickinson most often punctuated her poems with dashes, rather than the more common array of periods, commas, and other punctuation marks.  She also capitalized interior words, not just words at the beginning of a line.

Generally, Dickinson´s poems lack a tittle.Her poems are now generally known by their first lines or by the numbers assigned to them by posthumous editor. Furthermore, she used to write in first person as in most lyric poetry.

Besides, sometimes she broke some of her poems into stanzas, but in others, there were no stanza breaks.

1. Achilles agrees with Ajax that he is clinging to his anger over Agamemnon's insult. Many of the choices Achilles makes are based on that anger. However, when Achilles sends Patroclus into the fray, he advises him to drive back the Trojans but to stay away from the city's walls, lest he be killed. These actions give depth to Achilles. Describe Achilles based on his actions and his interactions with others. Use specific details from the text to support your answer.

1. based on his actions, Achilles seems to be brave by warning Patroclus and helping him so that he would not lose his life. ( Since you did not provide the text for this answer, just search for some parts in the passage that matches this description.)
2. He has been willing to sacrifice his life for his pride. Since Achilles wants to be the hero so much, he puts his life on the line all because of his pride. His pride causes him to act brave and seem fearless but his pride is slowly eating away at him. Because of this, his pride could just be his downfall if it continues.
3. Because of all his pride and wanting to be the hero in everything to save everyone and to be the star, he went against something he could just not beat because of his pride. His pride caused his downfall.

Read the excerpt from A Vindication of the Rights of Woman. I have repeatedly asserted, and produced what appeared to me irrefragable arguments drawn from matters of fact, to prove my assertion, that women cannot, by force, be confined to domestic concerns; for they will, however ignorant, intermeddle with more weighty affairs, neglecting private duties only to disturb, by cunning tricks, the orderly plans of reason which rise above their comprehension. This idea enhances Wollstonecraft’s argument by insisting that women deserve to be educated despite their inferior capacity for learning. suggesting that women’s natural curiosity will lead to trickery if it is not nurtured through education. asserting that domestic chores offer fulfillment because they require a vast knowledge of the world. claiming that women who excel in domestic roles should be called upon to serve as world leaders.

This idea enhances Wollstonecraft’s argument by suggesting that women’s natural curiosity will lead to trickery if it is not nurtured through education.

A Vindication of the Rights of Woman is an exposition on overcoming the oppression and denial of the women in the society. It is a dedication to Charles. M. Talleyrand whose views on women education to Wollstonecraft were repugnant. She blamed the condition of adult women due to the negligence of girl's education. The women in the society only care about being attractive, modest and elegant. They are deprived to defend their fundamental rights and are treated as subordinates.

In her argument, she describes ways in which women combine their silliness. Their silliness includes visiting fortune tellers, reading a stupid novel, rivalries with women, and so forth. Due to women's low status and no education results in women's faults and not due to natural deficiency.
