Miss Maudie says to Scout, “Atticus Finch is the same in his house as he is on the public streets.” What does this mean? What is the significance of the difference between Atticus and others in the town?

Atticus does not pretend to be better than anyone. He is not racist and does not put on airs. He raises his children with the same standards that he raises himself with. Other people in the town make up long lies that they blame on others, using race as a key part.

Please help!!!!!!! The Cherry Orchard is A Comedy in Four Acts. Anton Chekhov famously disagreed with the plays first director, Konstantin Stanislavsky, about whether the play was a comedy or a tragedy. Chose one ( comedy or tragedy ) and defend your position with evidence from the text.

Anton Chekhov conceived of this play, which turned out to be his last, as a comedy,designating it “A Comedy in Four Acts” and even emphasizing to the Moscow Art Theatre that the last act should be “merry and frivolous.”  He suggested that some portions were even farcical.  Nevertheless, most interpretations and theatrical productions have emphasized its tragic aspects. It is understandable why the playwright’s intentions have been largely disregarded; the subject is a serious and depressing one including the family’s loss of their ancestral home and removal from it and other sad developments as well.  The destruction of the orchard also represents the destruction of illusions—sad, to be sure, but perhaps hopeful.

 

Thus, as the inevitable change in society with the dawning of the 20th Century comes, the play represents this time period and portrays an end of an aristocratic era with both tragic and comic elements.  The play is best characterized as a tragicomedy.

Select the questions below that would lead to a well-focused Interview. What led you to start playing guitar at age five? How did your teachers and parents motivate you to practice? What other instruments do you play besides the guitar? How was your life as a young musician different from the lives of other kids at school? How did you deal with all the fans and attention at such a young age?

Answer:

What led you to start playing guitar at age five?

How did your teachers and parents motivate you to practice?

How did you deal with all the fans and attention at such a young age?

Explanation:

These are the questions that are most likely to lead to a well-focused interview. It seems like the interview is directed towards a musician who plays the guitar. Therefore, the first and second questions are important if we want to learn about his past and how that led to his becoming a musician. The last question is also important as it specifically asks about a well-known problem of young musicians. However, the other two questions are not as relevant for our interview, as they are too general.

This could be a trick question. Because the Modern Language Association of America and the Modern Language Association is basically the same thing and both can stand for MLA...although Modern Language Association is often abbreviated as MLA more frequently. 

However, I noticed that "B" does not have the word Association in it so its incomplete. Thus A. Modern Language Association is the correct answer

Identify the inflection of the verb playing. infinitive present, third person singular past tense present participle

Hello there!

In grammar, inflection is the modification of a word to express different grammatical categories such as tense, case, voice, aspect, person, number, gender, and mood.

Now, we have this conjugation of the verb "to play": playing.

Let's see the possible answers:

A. infinitive: no, a verb in infinitive does not have any conjugation; thus, this option is no the correct one.

B. Present, third person singular: this conjugation applies to a specific moment and pronoun: present - usually or currently happens -, and pronoun, thind person singular: he/she/it. Example of the verb conjugated in that form: she plays, he plays, it plays.

C. Past tense: this is used to talk about actions that already took place. Conjugation of the verb "play" for all the pronouns in past tense: I played, you played, she played...

D. This is the correct answer: present participle. The present participle is the form of a verb used in forming continuous tenses; its structure - almost always - is the basic form of the verb, plus ING ending. Example: PLAY - ING. Playing.

Correct answer is D.

Whom is the speaker addressing in the second and third stanzas? Thou still unravished bride of quietness, Thou foster-child of silence and slow time, Sylvan historian, who canst thus express A flowery tale more sweetly than our rhyme: What leaf-fringed legend haunts about thy shape Of deities or mortals, or of both, In Tempe or the dales of Arcady? What men or gods are these? What maidens loth? What mad pursuit? What struggle to escape? What pipes and timbrels? What wild ecstasy? Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard Are sweeter; therefore, ye soft pipes, play on; Not to the sensual ear, but, more endeared, Pipe to the spirit ditties of no tone: Fair youth, beneath the trees, thou canst not leave Thy song, nor ever can those trees be bare; Bold lover, never, never canst thou kiss, Though winning near the goal—yet, do not grieve; She cannot fade, though thou hast not thy bliss, For ever wilt thou love, and she be fair! Ah, happy, happy boughs! that cannot shed Your leaves, nor ever bid the spring adieu; And, happy melodist, unwearied, For ever piping songs for ever new; More happy love! more happy, happy love! For ever warm and still to be enjoyed, For ever panting, and for ever young; All breathing human passion far above, That leaves a heart high-sorrowful and cloyed, A burning forehead, and a parching tongue. Who are these coming to the sacrifice? To what green altar, O mysterious priest, Lead’st thou that heifer lowing at the skies, And all her silken flanks with garlands drest? What little town by river or sea shore, Or mountain-built with peaceful citadel, Is emptied of this folk, this pious morn? And, little town, thy streets for evermore Will silent be; and not a soul to tell Why thou art desolate, can e'er return. O Attic shape! Fair attitude! with brede Of marble men and maidens overwrought, With forest branches and the trodden weed; Thou, silent form, dost tease us out of thought As doth eternity: Cold Pastoral! When old age shall this generation waste, Thou shall remain, in midst of other woe Than ours, a friend to man, to whom thou say’st, “Beauty is truth, truth beauty,”—that is all Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.

What are the choices?

What is one of the higher purposes of literature that an author might undertake? A. Sharing entertaining stories B. Retelling classic stories in modern ways C. Persuading readers to change their attitudes D. Making their characters famous

The answer is C: Persuading readers to change their attitudes.

Great works of literature throughout history all have reshaped society´s views on an endless number of attitudes, behaviors, conceptions, and ideas. Indeed, this is one possible higher purpose of literature. The examples are virtually countless, but one could mention Tolstoy´s Ana Karenina and how it impacted society´s views on seduction and love, or Dostoyevsky´s Karamazov brothers which made society revaluate views on family ties, responsibility, humaneness and even the understanding of a divine being and its role in one´s own life.

Which paragraphs from The Autobiography of Charles Darwin most effectively develop Darwin’s claim that the voyage of the “Beagle” was the most important event in his life? My apologies, I just cannot think this morning, my dudes. Here's the text if y'all need it: The voyage of the "Beagle" has been by far the most important event in my life, and has determined my whole career; yet it depended on so small a circumstance as my uncle offering to drive me thirty miles to Shrewsbury, which few uncles would have done, and on such a trifle as the shape of my nose. I have always felt that I owe to the voyage the first real training or education of my mind; I was led to attend closely to several branches of natural history, and thus my powers of observation were improved, though they were always fairly developed. The investigation of the geology of all the places visited was far more important, as reasoning here comes into play. On first examining a new district nothing can appear more hopeless than the chaos of rocks; but by recording the stratification and nature of the rocks and fossils at many points, always reasoning and predicting what will be found elsewhere, light soon begins to dawn on the district, and the structure of the whole becomes more or less intelligible. I had brought with me the first volume of Lyell's 'Principles of Geology,' which I studied attentively; and the book was of the highest service to me in many ways. The very first place which I examined, namely St. Jago in the Cape de Verde islands, showed me clearly the wonderful superiority of Lyell's manner of treating geology, compared with that of any other author, whose works I had with me or ever afterwards read. Another of my occupations was collecting animals of all classes, briefly describing and roughly dissecting many of the marine ones; but from not being able to draw, and from not having sufficient anatomical knowledge, a great pile of MS. which I made during the voyage has proved almost useless. I thus lost much time, with the exception of that spent in acquiring some knowledge of the Crustaceans, as this was of service when in after years I undertook a monograph of the Cirripedia. During some part of the day I wrote my Journal, and took much pains in describing carefully and vividly all that I had seen; and this was good practice. My Journal served also, in part, as letters to my home, and portions were sent to England whenever there was an opportunity. The above various special studies were, however, of no importance compared with the habit of energetic industry and of concentrated attention to whatever I was engaged in, which I then acquired. Everything about which I thought or read was made to bear directly on what I had seen or was likely to see; and this habit of mind was continued during the five years of the voyage. I feel sure that it was this training which has enabled me to do whatever I have done in science. Looking backwards, I can now perceive how my love for science gradually preponderated over every other taste. During the first two years my old passion for shooting survived in nearly full force, and I shot myself all the birds and animals for my collection; but gradually I gave up my gun more and more, and finally altogether, to my servant, as shooting interfered with my work, more especially with making out the geological structure of a country. I discovered, though unconsciously and insensibly, that the pleasure of observing and reasoning was a much higher one than that of skill and sport. That my mind became developed through my pursuits during the voyage is rendered probable by a remark made by my father, who was the most acute observer whom I ever saw, of a skeptical disposition, and far from being a believer in phrenology; for on first seeing me after the voyage, he turned round to my sisters, and exclaimed, "Why, the shape of his head is quite altered."

I think it is the first paragraph of the excerpt

Which statement best represents the power of the modern-day monster on readers? A. The author challenges readers to identify the monster based on physical appearance. B. They cause readers to fear those in society who are different from them. C. The author reminds readers that the monster's only motive is to spread evil. D. The monster challenges readers to recognize that a monster could be an ordinary person, not just an outcast.

The correct answer is D.

People usually associate people who are different in some sense -antisocials, people with a physical deformity or people with strange interests- with monsters.

However, the author challenges readers to realize that being different does not mean the person is a monster, and that, ordinary looking people could be monsters in disguise.

If there is one thing that mass media like radio, television and computers can never replace are the books. It is true that people have fallen out of reading. There are many reasons for this and I will not analyze them here. Yet there are still millions of people around the world who think the book can be an unparalleled source of pleasure.

Read the excerpt below from A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah and answer the question that follows. Just three days earlier, I had seen my father walking slowly from work. His hard hat was under his arm and his long face was sweating from the hot afternoon sun. I was sitting on the verandah. I had not seen him for a while, as another stepmother had destroyed our relationship again. But that morning my father smiled at me as he came up the steps. He examined my face, and his lips were about to utter something, when my stepmother came out. He looked away, then at my stepmother, who pretended not to see me. They quietly went into the parlor. I held back my tears and left the verandah to meet with Junior at the junction where we waited for the lorry. We were on our way to see our mother in the next town about three miles away. When our father had paid for our school, we had seen her on weekends over the holidays when we were back home. Now that he refused to pay, we visited her every two or three days. That afternoon we met Mother at the market and walked with her as she purchased ingredients to cook for us. Her face was dull at first, but as soon as she hugged us, she brightened up. She told us that our little brother, Ibrahim, was at school and that we would go get him on our way from the market. She held our hands as we walked, and every so often she would turn around as if to see whether we were still with her. How does the setting in the excerpt support Beah’s characterization?

The details in setting support Beah’s characterization by revealing his relationship with his parents. He seems to love his father despite his father’s actions. He doesn’t want to show his emotion even though he is clearly upset that his father did not speak. Beah seems to try to respect his father’s rules when his father is still contributing to his schooling.
