What techniques did early poets use to make poems easier to remember?

[ad_1]

Answer:

The answer to the question: What techniques did early poets use to make poems easier to remember, would be: Rhyme, Rythm and Meter.

Explanation:

Because poetry, unlike prose, requires the mind of a reader to exert extra efforts to catch meaning and see the beauty of a poetic work, poets, especially in earlier times, tended to use techniques that converted poetry into a musical experience. Such devices, which helped a poem become almost musical, and emulate the rythms of the human body and mind, were rythm, rhyme and meter. Rythm is the establishment of a repetitive pattern, which allows the mind to connect with the flow of constant sounds which help it to recite and remember, a poem. The second is rhyme, which is almost like the muscial melody of a poem, with the repetition of the final sounds of words at the end of each sentence, or stanza. Rhyme also, because of its almost melodic sound, helps memory retain information better. Finally, meter combines with rhyme to add that muscial quality to poetry an ensures further retention of information.

This flashback occurs after the boys stop in Kabati and see survivors fleeing from Mogbewmo. Beah chose to provide this flashback because of the fact that it gives the reader a little historical background and also provides for the story the comparison between civil war and independence. 
System Answer: Beah provides this flashback to his father’s words after he, Junior, and Talloi give up their attempts to head back to Mogbwemo. From the verandah of their grandmother’s abandoned home, they had witnessed victims from the rebel attack pass. The boys give up hope on Mogbwemo and head back to Mattru Jong. At this moment, Beah chooses to reflect on his father’s words. Based on the information provided in the flashback, I think Beah is doing two things: he’s both informing the audience of a bit of Sierra Leone’s history as well as asking the readers to reflect on why this war was happening. There are some, according to Beah, that believed the civil war was one of revolution. Yet, the actions of the revolutionaries, which Beah had just witnessed, were awful, violent, and senseless. All that was left, in Beah’s words, is fear—a fear that didn’t have any answers, justice, or rationale for its victims.

Answer:

c. The discoloration of ages had been great.

Explanation:

The Fall of the House of Usher (The Fall of the House of Usher) is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe first published in 1839.  The story begins with an unnamed narrator who arrives at the home of his friend, Roderick Usher, having received a letter from him in a distant part of the country complaining about an illness, and asking for his help. When he arrives, the narrator observes a thin crack that extends from the roof at the front of the building to the lake.

Although Poe wrote this tale before the invention of modern psychological science, Roderick’s condition can be described according to his terminology. It includes a form of sensory overload known as hyperesthesia (hypersensitivity to textures, light, sounds, smells and tastes), hypochondria (an excessive worry or temerity in having a serious illness), and acute anxiety. It is revealed that Roderick’s twin sister, Madeline, is also ill and falls into cataleptic trances, as if in a state of death. The narrator is impressed by Roderick’s paintings, and tries to cheer him up by reading with him and listening to his improvised musical compositions on guitar. Roderick sings “The Haunted Palace,” then tells the narrator that he believes that the house in which he lives may be alive, and that this sensitivity stems from the arrangement of the house and the surrounding vegetation.

The structure of the lines creates a tone that reflects restlessness and change. Blank verse gives the poem a natural, narrative flow, while the iambic pentameter gives it a rhythm that sounds like action and movement. The run-on, or enjambed, lines and those that end a sentence mid line (caesura) create a feeling of starting and stopping, of lingering and darting, that echoes the poem’s celebration of travel:

I cannot rest from travel: I will drink

Life to the lees: All times I have enjoy’d

Greatly . . .

The reader has to extend “I will drink” to the next line to see the enthusiasm of “Life to the lees.” Then the reader must stop with the new sentence and again stretch enjoy’d to its amplifying modifier Greatly.

In this situation, it is likely that all of the above were causes for confusion. Nonverbal communication can be very different in different cultures. For example, the reason why the Japanese people looked at the Americans could be related to body language, gender roles, appearance, etc. In terms of verbal communication, the Japanese might be surprised at their language, the topics they discuss, their noise levels, etc. Because communication is so linked to culture, it is good to try to get acquainted with the culture before visiting the country.

Can any obstacle or disadvantage be turned into something good? Obstacles, which are the essential part of our lives, often seem to prevent us from reaching our goals and frustrate us. Therefore, most people think that difficulties are bound to exert negative influence on us. As far as I am concerned, people can benefit from the obstacles they encounter. In deed, obstacles often makes it harder for us to succeed, but when we look back, we will find that obstacles give us valuable experience and push us to achieve greatness. Steve Jobs, the world-famous entrepreneur, was once fired by Apple, the company he started. At that time, he was extremely frustrated. But he finally found that he still loved his job and started a new company. As a beginner free of pressure, he was more creative than ever. His new company created the world¡¯s first animated feature film and became the world¡¯s best animation studio. When he returned to Apple after Apple bought his company, what he developed in his company became the heart of Apple¡¯s renaissance. He regarded this great obstacle as the best thing happening in his life. Had he not been dismissed, he might not be able to fully exploit his potential as well as creativity and would not achieve greatness as he does now. Colonel Sanders, the founder of KFC, first served his fried chickens in his gas station in Corbin for the travelers heading to Florida. Unfortunately, after the construction of Interstate 75, which bypassed Corbin and dramatically reduced his customer traffic, he was forced to sell his properties and travel the US to sell his chicken at the age of 65. It was on the travel that he met Peter Harman. Together, they opened the first KFC outlets and in 10 years, their chickens were sold in over 600 franchised outlets in North America. If Interstate 75 was not constructed, Sanders might sell his chickens in his gas station until his death and was unlikely to develop KFC into such a big company. The two examples above demonstrate that though obstacles adversely affect our lives contemporarily, they actually bring us benefit in the future. If it was not for the difficulties we met, we might not have the chance to improve ourselves and make greater achievements in our lives. Please give me some advice. Thank u!

Indeed is one word, other than that I think the entire thing is very good.

Read the paragraph from a student’s literary essay comparing two different works. (1) Sandra Cisneros’s “Mericans” is about a young American girl of Mexican descent who is struggling to find her own cultural identity. (2) Cisneros illustrates this through a number of images and ideas. (3) For example, the speaker, Micaela, calls her grandmother “awful,” and seems to resent the woman’s strict views and religious ideals. (4) The speaker also mentions how she and her brother emulate characters from popular American television programs when they play make-believe. (5) Lastly, she describes physically standing outside her family’s church, an act that symbolizes the fact that she feels like an outsider to Mexican culture. (6) Although Micaela is of Mexican descent, she seems to feel a stronger connection to the United States. This paragraph supports the idea that Micaela A. wishes her heritage was different because she has difficulty relating to her grandmother. B. wants to find her own unique identity that is separate from her brother and her grandmother. C. will never accept her Mexican roots because of her feelings toward her grandmother. D. identifies with her Mexican heritage in a different way than her grandmother.

Answer:

D. identifies with her Mexican heritage in a different way than her grandmother.

Explanation:

In this paragraph, the student describes how Micaela feels about her Mexican heritage. We know that the girl struggles with her heritage, and that she identifies strongly with the American part of herself. However, we also know that she does consider herself Mexican, and is simply unsure of what this means. We also know that she feels distant from her grandmother, who she labels as “awful” and who has an understanding of heritage that is too strict and religious for Micaela. All of this supports the idea that Micaela identifies with her heritage in a different way than her grandmother.

Read the excerpt from My Story. She took me up a flight of stairs (the cells were on the second level), through a door covered with iron mesh, and along a dimly lighted corridor. She placed me in an empty dark cell and slammed the door closed. She walked a few steps away, but then she turned around and came back. She said, “There are two girls around the other side, and if you want to go over there with them instead of being in a cell by yourself, I will take you over there.” I told her that it didn’t matter, but she said, “Let’s go around there, and then you won’t have to be in a cell alone.” It was her way of being nice. It didn’t make me feel any better. How does Rosa Parks help the reader understand her emotions in this excerpt? A. by describing in detail the order of what happened to her B. by comparing her feelings to those of other prisoners she met C. by sharing the exact dimensions of the prison cell she was put in D. by explaining how her feelings were expressed as pain in her body

Answer:

A. by describing in detail the order of what happened to her.

Explanation:

In this excerpt, Rosa Parks describes, in detail, what happened to her. She tells us how she was taken to the cell, after climbing some stairs and walking along a dimly lighted corridor. She also describes how the woman who took her there was trying to be nice to her and how that did not make her feel any better. Through these descriptions, we can better understand the emotions that Rosa Parks was experiencing.

Read the claim and paragraph. (1) Homework has more negative effects on children and teenagers than positive effects. (2) Hours of schoolwork after the school day is over intrude on students’ family lives, cause unnecessary stress, and take away from time participating in other enriching activities. (3) In addition, studies show that for children below high-school age, there is no relationship between homework and how a student performs on a test, and for high-school students, the relationship is nearly insignificant. (4) Although homework might not have a major effect on test scores, some say that it teaches students other important life lessons. (5) However, no conclusive study has shown that homework improves students’ self-discipline, time-management skills, or sense of independence. (6) Therefore, schools should seriously reconsider revising homework guidelines, and teachers should only assign homework when it is truly necessary. Which sentence contains a rebuttal to the counterclaim in the paragraph? sentence 2 sentence 4 sentence 5 sentence 6

Answer:


The sentence that contains a rebuttal to the counterclaim in the paragraph is sentence 5


Explanation:


A rebuttal is a response to a counterclaim that for obvious reasons is opposite to the original idea, here the main idea is that homework has more negative than positive effects on students, so the rebuttal to that idea is saying that even when the study’s results are not conclusive homework in fact help students to develop other abilities,

PLEASE PLEASE HELP!! How does William Blake use literary techniques (repetition, rhyme, rhythm, figurative language, symbolism, form, style, etc.) and structure to develop meaning, mood, and tone in “The Echoing Green”? Use evidence from the text to support your response. Your response should be two to three complete paragraphs.

The poem follows the structure of a day— ‘the sun does arise’ in the beginning of the first verse, and ‘the sun does descend’ in the middle of the third stanza, and can be read as a metaphor for human life. The poem is the contrast of innocence and experience, but also the contrast between perception of joys and sorrows. What is happening on the Green will happen again, shown by the ‘old folk’ who watch the children and reminisce about their own childhood on the Green. The whole poem is written in six sentences with much repetition.

“Lot’s Wife” by Anna Akhmatova translated by Max Hayward and Stanley Kunitz And the just man trailed God’s shining agent, over a black mountain, in his giant track, while a restless voice kept harrying his woman: “It’s not too late, you can still look back at the red towers of your native Sodom, the square where once you sang, the spinning-shed, at the empty windows set in the tall house where sons and daughters blessed your marriage-bed.” A single glance: a sudden dart of pain stitching her eyes before she made a sound . . . Her body flaked into transparent salt, and her swift legs rooted to the ground. Who will grieve for this woman? Does she not seem too insignificant for our concern? Yet in my heart I never will deny her, who suffered death because she chose to turn. Source: Akhmatova, Anna. “Lot’s Wife.” Max Hayward and Stanley Kunitz trans. Poets.org.

In “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud,” the speaker is a human, who experiences the startling beauty of nature through the unexpected discovery of an entire sea of daffodils by the water. This poem is pensive and calm, using light, frivolous vocabulary: the daffodils are “fluttering and dancing in the breeze,” and “tossing their heads in sprightly dance.” The waves in the bay, as well, dance and sparkle, and yet the daffodils are more captivating even than the ocean, multitudinous as they are, as the stars in the sky. In Wordsworth’s poem nature is powerful and inviting, exhibiting forces of healing in the form of bright colors and gentle vibes. It is recounted from a comfortable, safe perspective; when the speaker is resting on his safe, warm couch, the memories of his solo walk along the bay …flash upon that inward eye Which is the bliss of solitude; And then my heart with pleasure fills, And dances with the daffodils. These recollections serve as a comfort and pleasure to him, even when he is comfortable in a pleasant environment. Such was the power of the scene. De la Mare’s poem also presents nature as a powerful force, but an impersonal, destructive one. The poem is told from the perspective of sea birds in a storm, and the vocabulary is a violent as Wordsworth’s is serene: “And the wind rose, and the sea rose,/To the angry billows’ roar,” and in the second verse, And the yeasty surf curdled over the sands, The gaunt grey rocks between; And the tempest raved, and the lightning’s fire Struck blue on the spindrift hoar – Here the birds have lost control, and the storm is forcing them onto the shore, waves tossing and wind howling, a wholly different scene than Wordsworth’s happy spring day. Even in the end, when the storm breaks and the sun comes out, we see the lingering effects of the chaos – “the bright green headlands shone/As they’d never shone before,” and yet within this setting we have vast hoards of sea birds breaking this lovely post-storm calm with their “screeching, scolding, [and] scrabbling.” But in the final two lines of the poem, we see also “A snowy, silent, sun-washed drift/Of sea-birds on the shore.” And herein lies the true destruction: while a whole host of birds are tumbling through the sky, another host of birds has been killed by the violence of the storm. Both poems depict the unpredictability of nature, and yet because Wordsworth’s poem is from the point of view of a man, on a bright spring day, his poem is more domestic and simple than that of de la Mare. The latter presents the point of view of nature itself, only to switch to a third person, withdrawn perspective at the end of the poem; humans have no role in the events that unfold. Any humans that exist in the area would have been safely indoors during the storm, away from any danger. We therefore get the rawness of nature where we would normally escape it for our fires and our beds; here is the flip-side of natural beauty – natural destruction. This poem is no walk in the garden, but a story of the wildness of natural processes. I NEED HELP WRITING THIS IN MY OWN WORDS PLEASE HELP

Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.
