Which lines in this excerpt from act I of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet reveal that Romeo was avoiding Benvolio? BENVOLIO: Madam, an hour before the worshipped sun Peered forth the golden window of the east, A troubled mind drove me to walk abroad, Where, underneath the grove of sycamore That westward rooteth from this city side, So early walking did I see your son. Towards him I made, but he was ‘ware of me And stole into the covert of the wood. I, measuring his affections by my own, Which then most sought where most might not be found, Being one too many by my weary self, Pursued my humor not pursuing his, And gladly shunned who gladly fled from me.

Since a tiny tender child of four,
There’s nothing that I dreamt of more,
Than to jump aboard a great big ship,
A telescope, a map, a sword, by my hip,
To feel the sea breeze in my hair,
To stroke my parrot on the wood chair,
To be bold and brave and happy as can be,
To trek and travel and sail the seven seas.

Shakespeare’s tragic play: Macbeth includes: sickness, health and disease within his play to retell a story of Macbeth’s dark side- covetous greed, lustfulness, and wickedness at his wife, friends, and enemies.

Macbeth’s unlawfulness throughout the story; he murdered Duncan (for the sake of pleasing his wife due to promising his dark side) and that promising let out his inner wickedness and made him greedy for more.

At the last of the Act 5

Macbeth’s wife slept walked due to being guilty of planning the murderous crime of eliminating Duncan with Macbeth. Therefore, she was guilty of her murderous crimes. Her, Lady Macbeth, shown as a powerless woman represented sickness. In result, Macbeth calls the doctor- yet the doctor could not find a cure, that embodies a sign of disease- Lady Macbeth is not well and later in the scene faints.

As for health, Macbeth became a powerhouse for his wife, and has become very powerful- that in order to kill his enemy- Macduff, he flew all the way to England to revisit Macduff in a duel battle with a level of health.

Thus, Macbeth dies, eliminated by his enemy, Macduff.

To conclude, Act 5, Scene 8 does vary health, sickness and even disease and that has became the ups and downs for Macbeth (health) and Lady Macbeth (sickness and disease)

Shakespeare’s allusion to Hecuba suggests that hamlet

[ad_1]

Some of the literary devices that Shakespeare uses in this passage would be:

Simile: “as swift in motion as a ball”

This is used in order to convey an image of very swift, quick movement. This conveys the idea of desperation, as Juliet cannot wait for the nurse to return.

Allusion: “And therefore hath the wind-swift Cupid wings.”

In these line, Shakespeare makes an allusion to Cupid, a creature from Greek mythology, often associated with love. This highlights the feelings of love that Juliet is experiencing.

Metaphor: “Therefore do nimble-pinion’d doves draw love,”

In this line, Juliet compares the nurse (who is acting as a messenger), and all other messenger that carry a message of love with doves, as they are also known to carry messages.

Answer:

The answer to your question would be option B, the importance of social justice.

Explanation:

The topic of social justice can be found throughout the novel To Kill a Mockingbird. For example the author of the book describes several social justice issues that affect a number of people in the novel, such as racism.

Through the book, certain characters such as Scout, confront the difficult truths about racism, and at the end of a novel, when she mentions killing a mockingbird, it can be inferred that she refers to the theme of social justice as, through her journey, Scout has learnt that while courts are a source of justice, there are also other ways of achieving justice outside of it.

March 4, 1933, was perhaps the Great Depression’s darkest hour. The stock market had plunged 85% from its high in 1929, and nearly one-fourth of the workforce was unemployed. In the cities, jobless men were lining up for soup and bread. In rural areas, farmers whose land was being foreclosed were talking openly of revolution. The crowd that gathered in front of the Capitol that day to watch Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Inauguration had all but given up on America. They were, a reporter observed, “as silent as a group of mourners around a grave.”
Roosevelt’s Inaugural Address was a pitch-perfect combination of optimism (“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”), consolation (the nation’s problems “concern, thank God, only material things”) and resolve (“This nation asks for action, and action now”). The speech won rave reviews. Even the rock-ribbed Republican Chicago Tribune lauded its “dominant note of courageous confidence.” F.D.R. had buoyed the spirits of the American people — and nearly 500,000 of them wrote to him at the White House in the following week to tell him so.
Hours after the Inauguration, Roosevelt made history in a more behind-the-scenes way. He gathered his Cabinet in his White House office and had Justice Benjamin Cardozo swear them in as a group, the first time that had ever been done. F.D.R. joked that he was doing it so they could “receive an extra day’s pay,” but the real reason was that he wanted his team to get to work immediately.
And that team came through brilliantly. In the next 100 days — O.K., 105, but who’s counting? — his Administration shepherded 15 major bills through Congress. It was the most intense period of lawmaking ever undertaken by Congress — a “presidential barrage of ideas and programs,” historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. observed, “unlike anything known to American history.”
