70 POINTS!!! PLEASE HELP!!!WILL GIVE BRAINLIEST!!!!!!!!!!While it is no doubt true that literary analysis is an effective way of understanding a literary work in depth, it can be argued that analyzing a text takes away the enjoyment of reading it. Which mode of reading do you prefer, reading for pleasure without any effort at analysis or analyzing as you read? Or do you prefer some other combination of reading strategies? Explain your preference.


I prefer reading for pleasure without any effort at analysis. Reading a passage once and looking up words in a dictionary will be a way to know new words and understand the text of the passage more.

Having a literacy device sheet in hand is important to comprehend if the text passage is a metaphor, simile, hyperbole etc and that help understand complex literacy language in poetry, Shakespearean language, and in eulogy themes.

Hope this helps.

The correct answer is C.

The book “Wheels of Change” by Sue Macy seeks to show the reader the true meaning and importance that being able to ride a bicicle had to women of the nineteenth century.

Macy explains that women were imprisoned by law, social conventions, and even by their clothing. They were controlled by the men in their lives in every aspect.

So, for them, a bike was not just one more device, like it was for men. For women, being able to ride a bike was a representation of freedom.

2. Which sentence’s verbs express simultaneous events? I am pleased to have done well on the test. Having done well on the text, I will be pleased. I knew that I did well on the test. Having done well on the test, I am pleased.


The correct answer is C. I knew that I did well on the test

Explanation:

Simultaneous events means when two events happen at the same time, it means there is no a difference in time between one event and the other, this simultaneity in language is usually expressed in the tense used to express the action or event, in this way, if the same tense is used to express two actions it is more likely those actions are simultaneous, as different tenses would express an explicit difference in the time the actions occurred. In the case of option C. “I knew that I did well on the test”, both actions which are “I knew” and “I did” are in simple past, which make them simultaneous, also it is possible both actions occurred at the same time as both actions can be carried out by a person at the same time. Thus, the sentence that expresses simultaneous events is C. I knew that I did well on the test, as it is the only option in which both actions are in the same tense and these actions can occur simultaneously.

My grandfather, who lost his short-term memory sometime during the first Eisenhower Administration, calls me into his study because he wants to tell me the story he’s never told anybody before again. . . . My grandfather slams the door and motions me to the chair in front of his desk. I’ll be thirteen in two weeks. “There’s something I want to tell you, son,” he says. “Something I’ve never told anybody. You think you’re ready? You think you’ve got the gumption?” “I think so.” “Think so?” “I know so, sir. I know I’ve got the gumption.” . . . “It was late,” he says. “Someone knocked on my stateroom door. I leaped up. In those days I slept in uniform—shoes, too.” My grandfather smiles. His face is so perfectly round that his smile looks like a gash in a basketball. I smile back. “Don’t smile,” he says. “Just because I’m smiling, don’t assume I couldn’t kill you right now. Know that about a man.” Source: Orner, Peter. “The Raft.” The Atlantic Online.

What role do symbols play in a text? For what purpose do you think a poet uses symbols?


The example answer on plato is:

A symbol gives the object that it represents a deeper and more significant meaning. For example, a poet may write, “My love is a wagging tail.” If the image of a wagging tail is used throughout the poem to refer to love, love acquires the qualities of the wagging tail—its enthusiasm, its friendliness, and its association with a happy dog. You might also conclude (and probably quite correctly) that the poet loves dogs. This symbol can serve to enrich the concept of love and give it new dimension. Therefore, symbols can give poets the opportunity to present their worldview to readers and create connections where you may not have seen them before. Through the clever and evocative use of symbols, writers can move the meanings of common objects from the ordinary to something much deeper and richer.

I hope this helps <3

The winds of revolution sweeping Egypt today aren’t the first that have ravaged that nation.

Most history textbooks open with a description of ancient Egypt as a towering civilization that, for more than a millennium, led mankind’s intellectual, political and cultural advancement. Each year, millions of visitors marvel at the pyramids jutting from Egypt’s dunes, at the mummified remains of the ancient pharaohs, and at Egypt’s mountains of other artifacts and relics—all testimony to the power the civilization once held.

But perhaps the most striking facet of Egyptian history is its precipitous fall.

Modern-day Egyptians, after all, are not descended from those ancient societies that constructed the Giza Pyramid Complex, the Great Sphinx, and other momentous structures. They have no connection to the early dynastic peoples that pioneered new frontiers in science, mathematics and art, and that once dominated the civilized world. Today’s Egypt is inhabited and ruled by Arabs; before that it was under British control; before that it was controlled by various Muslim peoples, including the Ottomans; before that it was the Romans; before that the Greeks; and before that the Persians.

Egypt has resurfaced intermittently in the past 2,500 years of world history,but always as the territory of a foreign nation or empire. What happened toancient Egypt—the unique and independent civilization established by the pharaohs, the nation that once reigned over mankind? That Egypt has clearly vanished.

What must a reader consider to understand an author’s purpose for writing? Check all that apply. the theme of the text the topic of the text the name of the text the author’s use of language the author’s attitude toward the topic the author’s approach to discussing the topic


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:

Training your dog

It is very important to train your dog. It keeps your dog’s mind active, and it help to build an understanding between you and your dog. Often, owners will shout at their dogs or even punish them when what is needed is training.

The error in grammar: it help

Correct verb form: it helps

Explanation:

In the simple present tense, third-person singular pronouns, like she, he and it, use conjugated verbs formed by the base form of a verb and the affix -s, -es, or -ies. For example: helps, thinks, cries, watches. In the excerpt provided, the error is in the verb help because it is not correctly conjugated for the pronoun it: it is missing an s at the end.
