It is this fate, I solemnly assure you, that I dread for you, when the time comes that you make your reckoning, and realize that there is no longer anything that can be done. May you never find yourselves, men of Athens, in such a position! Yet in any case, it were better to die ten thousand deaths, than to do anything out of servility towards Philip [or to sacrifice any of those who speak for your good]. A noble recompense did the people in Oreus receive, for entrusting themselves to Philip’s friends, and thrusting Euphraeus aside! And a noble recompense the democracy of Eretria, for driving away your envoys, and surrendering to Cleitarchus! They are slaves, scourged and butchered! A noble clemency did he show to the Olynthians, who elected Lasthenes to command the cavalry, and banished Apollonides! It is folly, and it is cowardice, to cherish hopes like these, to give way to evil counsels, to refuse to do anything that you should do, to listen to the advocates of the enemy’s cause, and to fancy that you dwell in so great a city that, whatever happens, you will not suffer any harm.

Here are a few pointers; hope this is useful)

Ovation-by definition- is show of appreciation from an audience, for a person’s accomplishments or flaw.

“Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world.”

A person’s accomplishment could be how they made a positive change in this world, strong leadership- that makes them a effective leader or simply helping others. A person’s flaw- mistakes in life, sin or even guilt should also be considered an appreciation- an ovation for representing mankind’s flaw and that humanity makes mistakes, fulfilling at least one deadly sin such as greed, lust, selfishness etc.

Thus, regardless of a person’s achievement or flaw- a person deserves an applause for, not the least, living in this society and this world that we are all living together and dying together.

That was just the introduction.. the best part is yet to come.. now it’s your turn!!

Here are other pointers to talk about in your essay:

Shakespeare’s famous line “All the World’s a stage. That agrees with your line: “Everybody deserves a standing ovation…”

Shakespeare explains that men and women are like players: they live, and die, some being celebrated and some forever living in solitude till their death. Shakespeare states the world is a “stage” which symbolizes that mankind is in its peak. The world is changing everyday: little by little and humanity is falling behind.
Due to our world turning into machinery: factories, an automotive future: where humans only job to live (entrance) and to die (exit) the famous humans remembered and the flawed not recalled.

This is according to Shakespeare’s imagery.

I don’t know what grade your in, but I think simplifying Shakespeare’s word of mouth in your essay would be handy and useful as it has strong references of your quote, and agrees strongly in your essay.

Hope this helps 🙂

Answer:

The correct answer is that this passage makes part of an Adventure.

Explanation:

The reason comes from knowing the different genres and styles of writing fiction and also taking into account the way that the situation is being narrated. In this passage, the writer is telling us about a woman, Danielle, who, after a terrible accident is found herself alone, in a really dangerous situation, in an even more dangerous and mysterious place, which she must survive in order to carry out her final goal, which is to deliver justice to those who caused the crash and the death of her fellow passengers. The fact that the passage itself narrates the terrible happenings, bust most of all, the difficult circumstances that Danielle must face for survival, shows that the author wants us to almost get into this adventure of survival with the character and understand how difficult this will be for her. These are all characteristics of the Adventure genre in literature.

The correct answer is B. Inexperience & lack of preparation

Explanation:

To begin with, the word apprehension refers to a strong feeling of fear or anxiety usually related to excessive worry about something going wrong or one making mistakes. This feeling occurs in different situations including communication in which the speaker is anxious about a presentation or speech, usually because she or he is afraid of committing mistakes or being negatively judged by the audience. Additionally, in the case of communication apprehension, there are different factors that influence it including the communicative situation, the audience, the context, the expertise of the speaker and the preparation of the presentation.

In the case presented, in which Jane spent little time working on the presentation, it is possible she experiences apprehension feelings as she does not have experience in giving presentations, which means she does not feel confident and she is more prompt to making mistakes. Also, her anxiety levels might increase as she did not prepare the presentation properly and therefore she might not be ready to deliver it. Thus, Jane is likely to feel apprehensive due to her inexperience and lack of preparation.

Answer:

One of the many different themes that is dealt with in the short story “The Most Dangerous Game”, by Richard Connell, and which is really interesting, is the reality of human brutality, and cruelty that is disguised by civilization and education.  

Explanation:

This can be seen in the story when Mr. Rainsford, the main protagonist, and an acknowledged hunter, meets General Zaroff, and lives as a guest under the man´s roof. This portrayal of the real brutality and cruelty that lies in human hearts, and that is covered through the hypocrisy of outward civilization and education, is the first thing that meets the reader´s eyes when we see how the general surrounds himself, within a jungle, by all that had once been a part of his European and aristocratic lifestyle. He is a gentleman in all manners, even when he is talking about the need to hunt human beings because he has become bored by animal hunting, but in truth, deep within, General Zaroff is just as brutal, and cruel, as the most vicious of all animals, and even worse, because he hides behind the guise of education and manners. This is why I chose this as one of the most interesting psychological themes in the story.

Why I descend into this bed of death,

Is partly to behold my lady’s face;

But chiefly to take thence from her dead finger

A precious ring, a ring that I must use

In dear employment: therefore hence, be gone:

Romeo says that he must go grieve for Juliet and wants to take “a precious ring” or her wedding ring from her finger.

Some people have said that, although Juliet does give Romeo a ring by way of the nurse inviting Romeo to Juliet’s bed, Romeo and Juliet did not exchange rings and so Juliet does not have a ring of Romeo’s and he has no “dear employment” for it.

He makes this up to get rid of Balthazar.
