Please select the best answer and click "submit." Read this excerpt from Canto XX of Dante's Inferno, in which Virgil describes the punishment of false prophets and fortune tellers: Because their faces turned round to their haunches So that they were compelled to walk backwards Since they could not possibly see ahead. Which sentence best explains Dante's intended use of symbolism in this passage? A. The sinners' compulsion to look backward darkly mirrors their strained attempts to see into the future in life. B. The figurative language is able to make abstract ideas, like compulsion, more concrete for the reader. C. The sinners' heads are twisted around so that they can only see where they're going by walking backward. D. The compulsion to walk backwards represents the sinners' preoccupation with practices from the primitive past.

The correct answer is A. The sinners' compulsion to look backward darkly mirrors their strained attempts to see into the future in life.

Explanation:

The word symbolism refers to the use of symbols, objects or words to represent a more abstract or complex idea. In the case of literature, symbolism is one of the most common devices used to give certain actions, words or events a more deeper meaning. In the epic poem "The Divine Comedy" by the Italian writer Dante Alighieri the use of symbolism is quite common and mainly linked to religious ideas, this can be seen in Dante's Inferno description of punishment for prophets and fortune tellers who are the people that use different practices to try to predict the future and who are punished in Dante's Inferno by having their faces turned around which force them to walk backward. The punishment these people received is linked symbolically to their practices of trying to know the future as their new condition in the Inferno stops them from looking forward which is what they did or tried to do during all their lives as they wanted to look forward in time or know the future. Thus, the symbolism is mainly used to show "the sinner's compulsion to look backward darkly mirror their strained attempts to see into the future in life" as this punishment represent in a symbolic way their sin was mainly to try to look forward or in the future and because of this they are condemned to never be able to look forward again.

QUESTION POSTED AT 17/10/2019 - 09:00 AM

A writer wants to make the following claim: Because of the lessons we have learned about careful water use, restrictions on the watering of lawns in Springdale should continue even after the drought ends. Which of the following would provide the most convincing support for this claim? Interviews with people who water their lawns too much and do more harm than good A community survey that states the majority of people support the lawn watering restrictions Evidence that restrictions effectively save significant amounts of water A claim by the homeowners' association that the restrictions are in the best interests of the neighborhood

Answer C. "Evidence that restrictions effectively save significant amounts of water."


Facts are always better to use when supporting a claim.  

The interview might explain that people who water their lawn too frequently are more likely to harm rather than help.  Except, this isn't a true fact because there is no causation between people watering their lawn too much and doing more harm.

A survey might show a popular vote, but the majority could possibly have voted for something based on opinions instead of facts.  

This is a true fact because their is evidence of a causation between watering restrictions and saving water.  By restricting the amount of water people can use for their lawns, water is being saved.  

A claim isn't a fact that can be used for supportive details.

Answer:

People who are on the low end of the healthy weight scale have fewer health concerns.

Explanation:

This is the sentence that would work best as a thesis statement. This sentence provides a clear idea that is broad enough to be interesting to many readers but narrow enough that it can be addressed in an essay. Moreover, the statement does not provide an opinion, but a fact, which means that evidence can be provided for it in the rest of the essay in order to persuade the audience. Finally, the statement does not exhibit personal bias.
