Determine the rhyme scheme of the following poem. XXV A heavy heart, Beloved, have I borne From year to year until I saw thy face, And sorrow after sorrow took the place Of all those natural joys as lightly worn As the stringed pearls, each lifted in its turn By a beating heart at dance-time. Hopes apace Were changed to long despairs, till God's own grace Could scarcely lift above the world forlorn My heavy heart. Then thou didst bid me bring And let it drop adown thy calmly great Deep being! Fast it sinketh, as a thing Which its own nature doth precipitate, While thine doth close above it, mediating Betwixt the stars and the unaccomplished fate.

When you want to determine the rhyme scheme of any poem, you should look only at the final word in each line. Based on that, you will know which lines rhyme, and which don't.
In this case, the correct answer is ABBAABBACDCDCD. 
A rhymes with A (borne, worn, turn, forlorn); B rhymes with B (face, place, apace, grace); C rhymes with C (bring, thing, mediating); D rhymes with D (precipitate and fate).

In “Everyday Use” by Alice Walker, why does Dee think Maggie should not have the quilts? because Maggie does not care enough to fight for them because Maggie is not named after their grandmother because Maggie is selfish and unwilling to share because Maggie does not appreciate their artistic value

In "Everyday Use," Dee believes that Maggie does not deserve to have the quilts that their grandmother made. Dee believes that the quilts are an artistic piece, and that they should not be devalued by using them everyday in the way Maggie would like to.

Answer:

QUESTION POSTED AT 18/11/2019 - 02:12 AM

Which sentence presents a faulty either/or argument? Perhaps more teachers would continue to teach, rather than leave the field, if their salaries were higher. If we value education as much as we claim, we should put our money where our mouth is and raise teachers’ salaries. Increasing teacher salaries might attract more competent individuals to the profession. If we don’t double teachers’ salaries, then the public education system in this country will fail.

The correct answer is "Increasing teacher salaries might attract more competent individuals to the profession."

An "either-or" argument or a false dilemma is a statement where 2 choices are presented and one of them has to be right end the other wrong. However, there are more than those 2 choices and even both of the 2 presented choices may be right or wrong.

The picked phrase does not represent "an either-or" phrase but rather presents itself as the "only" solution to the problem of improving education.

QUESTION POSTED AT 18/11/2019 - 02:06 AM

Why could “The Danger of Lying in Bed” be considered a personal essay?

The Danger of Lying in Bed” takes a personal experience and connects it to something more general. One issue Twain explores is human gullibility—people’s tendency to accept something without looking at its underlying assumptions. He uses the idea of the train travel insurance as the symbol for carrying this thought and analysis. He discusses the obviously silly idea about how lying in bed is more dangerous than traveling as satire to show how people can use statistics to support even the most ridiculous ideas.

Ultimately, Twain’s satirical essay shows people that they shouldn’t accept everything they are told. Twain starts with what may or may not be an actual personal experience of traveling by train and being asked if he wants to purchase traveler's insurance. He uses it to develop a satirically logical conclusion that people are less likely to die while traveling by train than while sleeping at home. He includes actual research and data to support his satirical views.

Qualities that indicate this is a personal essay include opening with an anecdote, reflecting on a personal experience, and commenting on an issue—in this case, human gullibility.
