Novels often offer social criticisms that reflect the author’s philosophical assumptions about society and human nature. In Jane Eyre, what detail reflects Charlotte Brontë’s outrage? Jane’s comments about how she would react to Miss Scatcherd’s cruel treatment Miss Scatcherd’s comments about Burns’s slatternly habits Helen’s description of her faults to Jane Helen’s reaction to Miss Scatcherd’s punishment with the rod

Answer:

  • Jane’s comments about how she would react to Miss Scatcherd’s cruel treatment.

Explanation:

Jane Eyre is offended and feels that Helen should oppose being dealt with unjustifiably. This is on the grounds that creator Charlotte Bronte was brought up in a parsonage and has an all around created feeling of good and bad. Helen is a devout Christian, and no uncertainty focused on choosing not to retaliate, yet Jane Eyre does not see this reaction as sufficient, or even important. Jane would want to see equity triumph.

In the poem, what do the phrases "wasted limbs," "rugged stones," "hungry wolves," and "burning sun" signify? How do these phrases fit with the view of death that the poem describes?

The phrases "hungry wolves," "rugged stones," and "wasted limbs" emphasize physical suffering in earthly life. They also suggest a strong desire for freedom from physical suffering. The poet sees life as a temporary state and sees death as the passage from this temporary state to a higher and permanent state that is far more important. Thus, these words that emphasize suffering in earthly life help to convey the idea that death is, in fact, a desirable release from pain.

The answer is: c. the narrator says he will die the following day as a consequence of his actions.

This is the beginning of the poem:

“ FOR the most wild, yet most homely narrative which I am about to pen, I neither expect nor solicit belief. Mad indeed would I be to expect it, in a case where my very senses reject their own evidence. Yet, mad am I not -- and very surely do I not dream. But to-morrow I die, and to-day I would unburthen my soul.”

When the poem is just staring the narrator is just introducing the reader to his story by telling that it can be unbelievable, however, he justify the narration in the fact that he will die the next day and for this reason he is going to unburthen his soul.

QUESTION POSTED AT 29/01/2020 - 11:52 AM

Industrialization in Europe changed the way people lived. The urban working class came into being, and with it came the drudgery of work. Which parts of this excerpt from Franz Kafka's The Metamorphosis most closely reflect this impact of industrialization on people’s lives? "What's happened to me?" he thought. It wasn't a dream. His room, a proper human room although a little too small, lay peacefully between its four familiar walls. A collection of textile samples lay spread out on the table—Samsa was a travelling salesman—and above it there hung a picture that he had recently cut out of an illustrated magazine and housed in a nice, gilded frame. It showed a lady fitted out with a fur hat and fur boa who sat upright, raising a heavy fur muff that covered the whole of her lower arm towards the viewer. Gregor then turned to look out the window at the dull weather. Drops of rain could be heard hitting the pane, which made him feel quite sad. "How about if I sleep a little bit longer and forget all this nonsense," he thought, but that was something he was unable to do because he was used to sleeping on his right, and in his present state couldn't get into that position. However hard he threw himself onto his right, he always rolled back to where he was. He must have tried it a hundred times, shut his eyes so that he wouldn't have to look at the floundering legs, and only stopped when he began to feel a mild, dull pain there that he had never felt before. "Oh, God", he thought, "what a strenuous career it is that I've chosen! Travelling day in and day out. Doing business like this takes much more effort than doing your own business at home, and on top of that there's the curse of travelling, worries about making train connections, bad and irregular food, contact with different people all the time so that you can never get to know anyone or become friendly with them. It can all go to Hell!" He felt a slight itch up on his belly; pushed himself slowly up on his back towards the headboard so that he could lift his head better; found where the itch was, and saw that it was covered with lots of little white spots which he didn't know what to make of; and when he tried to feel the place with one of his legs he drew it quickly back because as soon as he touched it he was overcome by a cold shudder. He slid back into his former position. "Getting up early all the time", he thought, "it makes you stupid. You've got to get enough sleep. Other travelling salesmen live a life of luxury. For instance, whenever I go back to the guest house during the morning to copy out the contract, these gentlemen are always still sitting there eating their breakfasts. I ought to just try that with my boss; I'd get kicked out on the spot. But who knows, maybe that would be the best thing for me. If I didn't have my parents to think about I'd have given in my notice a long time ago, I'd have gone up to the boss and told him just what I think, tell him everything I would, let him know just what I feel."

Read this excerpt from Little Brother and answer the following questions in complete sentences using proper grammar and punctuation: After a heated classroom discussion with his substitute teacher, Marcus is sent to the assistant principal's office. I went fast to Mr Benson's office. Cameras filmed me as I went. My gait was recorded. The arphids in my student ID broadcast my identity to sensors in the hallway. It was like being in jail. "Close the door, Marcus," Mr Benson said. He turned his screen around so that I could see the video feed from the social studies classroom. He'd been watching. "What do you have to say for yourself?" "That wasn't teaching, it was propaganda. She told us that the Constitution didn't matter!" "No, she said it wasn't religious doctrine. And you attacked her like some kind of fundamentalist, proving her point. Marcus, you of all people should understand that everything changed when the bridge was bombed. Your friend Darryl—" "Don't you say a word about him," I said, the anger bubbling over. "You're not fit to talk about him. Yeah, I understand that everything's different now. We used to be a free country. Now we're not." "Marcus, do you know what 'zero-tolerance' means?" I backed down. He could expel me for "threatening behavior." It was supposed to be used against kids who tried to intimidate their teachers. But of course he wouldn't have any compunction about using it on me. "Yes," I said. "I know what it means." "I think you owe me an apology," he said. I looked at him. He was barely suppressing his sadistic smile. A part of me wanted to grovel. It wanted to beg for his forgiveness for all my shame. I tamped that part down and decided that I would rather get kicked out than apologize. In three to five sentences, summarize the conflict Marcus is facing in this excerpt.

Marcus felt that being sent to the principal's office for a heated conversation, and not an altercation, was absurd. Getting in trouble for simply questioning a substitute teacher's teachings, who, might I add, doesn't need a degree to sub, and overall will more likely than not have little to no educational effect on you, was ridiculous. His problem i is he is now being blackmailed by the principal with the "Zero-tolerance" policy for "threatening a teacher" which is illogical.

Which sentence would best fit at the beginning of a first paragraph and would also make the best topic sentence? a. as hot water rises through limestone, it dissolves large quantities of rock. b. these hot springs are quite different from thermal areas elsewhere in the park. c. because there is a great deal of limestone in the water, rock formations grow extremely rapidly. d. mammoth hot springs is a popular attraction because the springs are unique.

When initiating a paragraph, or a document, it is really important to take into account that the first sentences will not only capture the reader´s interest, but will also let him/her know about the topic, or theme, on which the document will be talking. As such, usually, unless the writer wants the reader to not glimpse the topic right away, the topic will be specified at the very first sentences within the opening paragraph. To do this, it is important for the writer to clarify what it is he/she will be talking about. In this case, the writer wants to talk about an attraction that is really impressive and unique, and which is completely natural; the hot springs. In order for the writer to make this clear to the reader, he must introduce the topic and then describe, or further explain, the reasons behind his/her argument, or main topic. From the choices given, then, the best one would be D: Mammoth hot springs are a popular attraction because the springs are unique, because this sentence lets us know what the whole paragraph will be about. If he started with the others, he would be telling us the descriptions of a hot spring, but we would not know that this is the topic to which the descriptions are refering.

What does this quote reveal about romeo in a crisis? o! i am fortune's fool. (iii, i, 103) romeo takes full responsibility for his own actions. romeo views his life as a plaything of fate, beyond his control. romeo thinks what happened is other people's fault. romeo degrades himself hoping that someone will argue with him to make him feel better about himself.

Answer: I would contend that the right answer is the B) Romeo views his life as a plaything of fate, beyond his control.

Explanation: Romeo pronounces these words after having killed Tybalt. He did not want to get involved in a fight with Tybalt on the first place, but when Tybalt killed Mercutio he felt compeled to do so. What Romeo is saying is that he has a terrible luck, since, after all, Mercutio fought Tybalt in order to protect Romeo's honor, and this caused him to die. In addition, he has killed the cousin of his now wife Juliet. These tragedies lead him to believe that he is toy in the hands of fate, that he is not in control of his foolish actions, and that good luck is not on his side.

Which is the most effective piece of evidence to support the claim that adolescents who exercise daily are healthier than those who are inactive? -adolescents who exercise daily have stronger muscles, higher levels of respiratory fitness, and lower levels of body fat. -there are three categories of exercise that adolescents should partake in: aerobic, muscle-strengthening, and bone-strengthening. -spending too much time on the couch watching television can have negative consequences for adolescents. -adolescents enjoy different types of activities, such as dance, martial arts, or team sports.

-adolescents who exercise daily have stronger muscles, higher levels of respiratory fitness, and lower levels of body fat.

This is the best answer because it lists the ways in which adolescents who exercise daily are healthier. The other options can be too vague. For example, the statement "Spending too much time on the couch watching television can have negative consequences for adolescents" doesn't indicate what the negative consequences could be. They may have nothing to do with health. Instead it might just be that the couch ends up with a massive crater from the body.
