Paul Revere’s Ride 1. What are the differences between the historical account and the story that Longfellow tells? Explain at least two differences. 2. How do Longfellow’s factual inaccuracies establish Revere as the hero of an American mythology or legend? 3. In this poem, Longfellow establishes a tone of deep reverence. How does he accomplish this tone and why is it important?

1) One difference is that, in the poem, Paul Revere rode by himself. In reality, he rode with a guy named William Dawes and another guy named Samuel Prescott. Another difference is that, in the poem, the events happened on April 18th. In reality, they happened on April 16th. 

2) He made Revere a symbol of all the values that were (and still are) important to the country, such as liberty, individuality, freedom, and patriotism. 

3) Throughout the poem, he treats Paul Revere as if he was more than just a messenger riding around on a horse yelling out warnings to all the neighbors in town. He is called “a voice in the darkness”, which gives a very serious tone to the poem and reminds the reader that this man was doing something very special and important. Also, the poem starts out, “Listen, my children, and you shall hear”, and this phrase sounds more formal and serious than, “Hey kids, want to hear a good story?”

Explain how Edgar Allan Poe’s “Annabel Lee” is an example of the “Rhythmical Creation of Beauty.”

Edgar Allan Poe believed that poetry was the “rhythmical creation of beauty” through words. Therefore, he considered poetry as an exercise in putting together beautiful elements. He demonstrates this in the poem “Annabel Lee.” The poem is the last one that Poe wrote, and one of his most famous ones. In it, Poe includes the elements that he considered created a beautiful piece. He presents a beautiful, young woman: Annabel. We also learn about the love that the narrator has for her. Finally, we witness her death, and a love that lasts beyond the grave. Therefore, Poe skillfully combines several elements that he considers are beautiful.

Which parts of this excerpt from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “Winter Dreams” helps build anticipation in the story? [A) Dexter put on his bathing-suit and swam out to the farthest raft, where he stretched dripping on the wet canvas of the springboard.] There was a fish jumping and a star shining and the lights around the lake were gleaming. Over on a dark peninsula a piano was playing the songs of last summer and of summers before that—songs from “Chin-Chin” and “The Count of Luxemburg” and “The Chocolate Soldier”—and [B) because the sound of a piano over a stretch of water had always seemed beautiful to Dexter he lay perfectly quiet and listened.] [C) The tune the piano was playing at that moment had been gay and new five years before when Dexter was a sophomore at college.] [D) They had played it at a prom once when he could not afford the luxury of proms, and he had stood outside the gymnasium and listened.] The sound of the tune precipitated in him a sort of ecstasy and it was with that ecstasy he viewed what happened to him now. [E) It was a mood of intense appreciation, a sense that, for once, he was magnificently attune to life and that everything about him was radiating a brightness and a glamour he might never know again.]

The correct answers are B) because the sound of a piano over a stretch of water had always seemed beautiful to Dexter he lay perfectly quiet and listened and E) It was a mood of intense appreciation, a sense that, for once, he was magnificently attune to life and that everything about him was radiating a brightness and a glamour he might never know again.

Explanation:

In literature anticipation is considered as a literary device implies the narrator or writer provides the audience clues about what is going to happen next in a story, without narrating the events that lead to that point. In the case of the short story “Winter Dreams” written by the American writer F. Scott Fitzgerald, anticipation occurs as the main character called Dexter “lay perfectly quiet and listened”, this makes the reader increase its interest as the atmosphere that is quiet suggest the reader something else is going to happen. On the other hand, the narrator also introduces anticipation by mentioning “a brightness and a glamour he might never know again”, because this shows the life of Dexter is going to change abruptly and he will be unable to be in the way he is while listening to the piano, although the reader does not know why this is going to happen. Thus, options B and E build anticipation because they suggest something else will happen with Dexter and his life is going to change, even though the reason why it will change is not explained immediately, this means the narrator provides clues on how the story will evolve but does not tell the events that will lead to that point which is what anticipation is about.

Isolation is a major theme in Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis. Which of these excerpts best reflect Gregor’s isolated condition after his transformation? He got into the habit of closely watching it for one or two hours before it was opened and then, lying in the darkness of his room where he could not be seen from the living room, he could watch the family in the light of the dinner table and listen to their conversation—with everyone’s permission, in a way, and thus quite differently from before. … All of them were usually very quiet nowadays. Soon after dinner, his father would go to sleep in his chair; his mother and sister would urge each other to be quiet; his mother, bent deeply under the lamp, would sew fancy underwear for a fashion shop; his sister, who had taken a sales job, learned shorthand and French in the evenings so that she might be able to get a better position later on. … Gregor never responded to being spoken to in that way, but just remained where he was without moving as if the door had never even been opened. If only they had told this charwoman to clean up his room every day instead of letting her disturb him for no reason whenever she felt like it! … The woman most likely meant to fetch the things back out again when she had time and the opportunity, or to throw everything out in one go, but what actually happened was that they were left where they landed when they had first been thrown unless Gregor made his way through the junk and moved it somewhere else.

He got into the habit of closely watching it for one or two hours before it was opened and then, lying in the darkness of his room where he could not be seen from the living room, he could watch the family in the light of the dinner table and listen to their conversation—with everyone’s permission, in a way, and thus quite differently from before.

Which mode of narration is used in this excerpt from Daisy Miller by Henry James? The young lady inspected her flounces and smoothed her ribbons again; and Winterbourne presently risked an observation upon the beauty of the view. He was ceasing to be embarassed, for he had begun to perceive that she was not in the least embarrassed herself. There had not been the slightest alteration in her charming complexion; she was evidently neither offended nor flattered. If she looked another way when he spoke to her, and seemed not particularly to hear him, this was simply her habit, her manner. Yet, as he talked a little more and pointed out some of the objects of interest in the view, with which she appeared quite unacquainted, she gradually gave him more of the benefit of her glance; and then he saw that this glance was perfectly direct and unshrinking. It was not, however, what would have been called an immodest glance, for the young girl’s eyes were singularly honest and fresh. They were wonderfully pretty eyes; and, indeed, Winterbourne had not seen for a long time anything prettier than his fair countrywoman’s various features—her complexion, her nose, her ears, her teeth. He had a great relish for feminine beauty; he was addicted to observing and analyzing it; and as regards this young lady’s face he made several observations. A. first person B. third-person omniscient C. second person D. third-person limited

The best and the correct answer among the choices provided by the question is the second choice or letter B.

The mode of narration used in the excerpt is a third-person omniscent.

Read the excerpt from “The Lady Maid’s Bell.” But that wasn’t the only queer thing in the house. The very next day I found out that Mrs. Brympton had no nurse; and then I asked Agnes about the woman I had seen in the passage the afternoon before. Agnes said she had seen no one, and I saw that she thought I was dreaming. To be sure, it was dusk when we went down the passage, and she had excused herself for not bringing a light; but I had seen the woman plain enough to know her again if we should meet. I decided that she must have been a friend of the cook’s, or of one of the other women servants: perhaps she had come down from town for a night’s visit, and the servants wanted it kept secret. Some ladies are very stiff about having their servants’ friends in the house overnight. At any rate, I made up my mind to ask no more questions.

First Impressions As the moving truck pulled away from her new house, Cris commenced unpacking her things and breaking in her new accommodations, all the while contemplating her first day of school, which began tomorrow. Before moving, her dad had explained how crucial a good first impression could be and offered a recommendation. She had no idea if his absurd advice would work, but she was willing to give it a chance. The next morning, as Cris gathered her things to make it to the bus stop on time, she took one last glance at her reflection in the mirror. “Here goes nothing,” she murmured before yelling goodbye to her parents as she raced out the front door. Cris arrived first at the bus stop, and while she frantically paced back and forth, she noticed another girl struggling to carry multiple bags. Cris decided on the spot to embrace her dad’s advice and rushed over to the girl. “Let me help you with those!” she squelched in an outlandish cartoon voice, hoping to break the ice. “I’m Cris.” “Huh . . . oh, thanks! I’m Aishah,” she said with a stuttering giggle. “Why do you have so many bags?” “These are decorations for the upcoming school dance. Say, would you mind helping me get them set up?” Aishah asked suddenly. “Uh, sure!” exclaimed Cris at the unexpected offer. Cris was working through a set of problems during her midday Geometry class, when she noticed the boy next to her struggling on a practice problem that she, too, worked hard to solve. She could see his frustration beginning to bubble to the surface, so she took a deep breath, thought of the funniest character she could and asked, “Help with your problem, do you need?” “What? Oh, yes,” the boy chuckled. “I’m usually quick with probability, but I don’t understand geometry equations quite so easily.” “Yeah, it gave me trouble too. Let me show you how I derived the answer.” Cris began as she demonstrated the solution and explained it, this time without the absurd voice. “Thanks for the help. I’m Jackson, by the way.” “Cris, nice to meet you.” When Cris arrived home, she began thinking of all the new voices she could use to win over new friends. She began practicing a new one when her dad walked in and asked, “So, how was your day?” “Great! I’m helping Aishah with the school dance decorations, and I met Jackson by aiding him with a geometry equation. And they seemed to really like my first impressions! I just hope they like my second ones, as well.” Character – WHO? Plot – WHAT? Setting – WHERE? Cris in the classroom What belongs in the empty space? A. What belongs in the empty space? B. helps another student solve a math problem C. helps decorate for the school dance helps unpack boxes

In this excerpt from act I, scene I, of Shakespeare’s Richard III, what two purposes does Richard’s soliloquy appear to serve? RICHARD III (Duke of Gloucester): Now is the winter of our discontent Made glorious summer by this sun of York; And all the clouds that lour’d upon our house In the deep bosom of the ocean buried. Now are our brows bound with victorious wreaths; Our bruised arms hung up for monuments; Our stern alarums changed to merry meetings, Our dreadful marches to delightful measures. Grim-visaged war hath smooth’d his wrinkled front; And now, instead of mounting barded steeds To fright the souls of fearful adversaries, He capers nimbly in a lady’s chamber To the lascivious pleasing of a lute. But I, that am not shaped for sportive tricks, Nor made to court an amorous looking-glass; I, that am rudely stamp’d, and want love’s majesty To strut before a wanton ambling nymph; I, that am curtail’d of this fair proportion, Cheated of feature by dissembling nature, Deformed, unfinish’d, sent before my time Into this breathing world, scarce half made up, And that so lamely and unfashionable That dogs bark at me as I halt by them; Why, I, in this weak piping time of peace, Have no delight to pass away the time, Unless to spy my shadow in the sun And descant on mine own deformity: And therefore, since I cannot prove a lover, To entertain these fair well-spoken days, I am determined to prove a villain And hate the idle pleasures of these days. Plots have I laid, inductions dangerous, By drunken prophecies, libels and dreams, To set my brother Clarence and the king In deadly hate the one against the other: And if King Edward be as true and just As I am subtle, false and treacherous, This day should Clarence closely be mew’d up, About a prophecy, which says that ‘G’ Of Edward’s heirs the murderer shall be. A.It develops the major characters of the play. B.It reveals the motivations and personality of the character. C.It signifies the point in the plot where the play reaches its climax. D.It informs the audience about the background of the plot. E.It evokes the emotions of love and happiness in the audience. theres more than one answer!!

I feel like one of them is definitely going to be B.

The other one i think might be D.
