Nymph's Reply to the Shepherd "If all the world and love were young,/And truth in every shepherd's tongue,/These pretty pleasures might me move/To live with thee and by thy love." To judge from her words, how does the nymph regard the shepherd's offer of love? a. Humorous b. inadequate c. Insulting d. acceptable

The correct answer is B, inadequate.


The nymph says that IF we didn't grow old, and IF shepherd's always told the truth, THEN "these pretty pleasures might me move."


However, the promises made by the shepherd are inadequate. They will not say young forever and shepherd's do not always tell the truth. She needs more than the promise of flowers and songs. His offers are not enough to make her decide to go live with him and be his love.


She is not insulted by his words, but she realizes what he offers is not enough. She regards the shepherd's offer of love as inadequate. Therefore, the correct answer is B.

QUESTION POSTED AT 18/02/2020 - 02:28 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.

Using what you learned in this unit, record evidence from the play in the Traitor or Patriot chart that could be used to prove Brutus is either a traitor or a patriot. Record your evidence, identify if it supports that Brutus is a traitor or patriot, and explain why you think the way you do. An example showing Brutus as traitor and as a patriot is completed for you as an example.

#1) Prove that Brutus is either a traitor or a patriot.

Answer: According to the previous unit he play both roles. This conclusion came from the fact that he killed his own friend Caesar, who considered Brutus a good friend, and said that he had done this act in order to save Rome from dictatorship.

#2) Identify if it supports that Brutus is a traitor or patriot, and explain why you think the way you do.

Answer: Both of the roles are played by Brutus. But in my opinion he was a traitor because he killed his own friend and then used the excuse of saving Rome from dictatorship. Also after killing Caesar and being totally okay with it he then went on to try to convince the townspeople to believe he was a good person and a noble being.

I hope it helps, Regards.

QUESTION POSTED AT 18/02/2020 - 01:48 PM

"How does Brutus’ tragic flaw of idealism contribute to his downfall? Brutus’ anger leads him to kill Caesar so that he can gain more power. His desire to rule Rome causes Octavius to kill Brutus. Brutus bases his decision to assassinate Caesar on what he believes is best for Rome. After killing Caesar, the Republic still falls apart, and Brutus eventually dies. Brutus’ shyness prevents him from standing up to Octavius’ army; this is the reason Brutus is killed. Brutus’ manipulative nature causes Cassius to turn against him; this is the reason Brutus is killed."

Answer:

Brutus bases his decision to assassinate Caesar on what he believes is best for Rome. After killing Caesar, the Republic still falls apart, and Brutus eventually dies.

Explanation:

The tragedy of William Shakespeare's "The Tragedy of Julius Caesar" revolves around the story of how Caesar was killed and the people involved for the death. The characters of Brutus and Cassius along with the instigation by some conspirators was what led to the murder.

Brutus was the friend and also a close political confidante of Caesar. So when the idea to murder Caesar was first planned and told to him, he was left in a dilemma. He loves Caesar and he also knows that he was trusted by the king. But at the same time, he also felt that he had become overly ambitious and that his greed for power will lead to Rome's ruin. So, comparing his loyalty to his friend Caesar with that of his loyalty to the state of Rome, he chose to let go of Caesar to save Rome from being under a dictator. His tragic flaw of idealism contributes to the downfall of not only Caesar or Rome but also himself. He thinks that the death of Caesar is best for Rome but even after that, the Republic still falls apart. And added to that, he also died in the end.

What is not one of Brutus’ values? loyalty stoicism tyranny honor

Potion c, tyranny is not a Brutus' value.

Brutus was well-known for his honesty and morality; he did value his friendships.  He used logic and reasoning.  Brutus's love of the Roman Republic was more important to him than being a loyal friend to Caesar.

As, Brutus, clearly and logicaly convinces the concerned public that Caesar was a tyrant who needed to be eliminated in order for them to be free, I can assume that tyranny is not one of his values, on the contrary, he rejects it.

Hamlet acts similarly to Claudius in the way he treats 4. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern.

In Hamlet, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Hamlet's childhood friends; however, they are on the King Claudius's side, that is to say they follow the orders of Hamlet's uncle, who has murdered Hamlet's father. In that way, Rosencratz and Guildenstern spy on Hamlet and they also accept to deliver an envelope with orders to send Hamlet to England. Moreover, Hamlet knows he cannot trust on them. In that way, he rewrites the letter inside the envelope and tells the executioner to kill Rosencratz and Guildenstern instead. Therefore, Hamlet lets Rosencratz and Guildenstern to die. In that sense, Hamlet acts similarly to Claudius, who murdered his own brother.
