    ok, just for everyone else who wonders: questions- 1. The last line of the poem, "My foe outstretched beneath the tree" implies that (10 points) the enemy is taking a nap under the tree. the friend is taking a nap under the tree. the friend was killed by the other friend's concealed wrath. the foe stole and ate the apple. the foe was killed by the confessed anger of his enemy. 2. In which stanza does the speaker represent himself/herself as capable of both good and evil? (10 points) Stanza 1 Stanza 2 Stanza 3 Stanza 4 None of the above 3. Why is the apple in stanza 3 poisonous? (10 points) It is the apple from the Garden of Eden. It grows from wrath. It is grown from unrequited love. both the first and second choices above both the second and third choices above 4. In which stanza does the speaker address what the foe has done to anger him/her? (10 points) Stanza 1 Stanza 2 Stanza 3 Stanza 4 None of the above 5. In line 7, the pronoun it refers to (10 points) wrath. friend. enemy. fears. tears. 6. In which stanza does the speaker tend to or nurse his/her wrath? (10 points) Stanza 1 Stanza 2 Stanza 3 Stanza 4 None of the above 7. In line 14, "When the night had veiled the pole," the word pole means (10 points) sky. tree. stars. all of the above none of the above 8. The verbs watered and sunned in stanza 2 (10 points) assist the comparison of unconcealed wrath to that of nurturing a plant. assist the comparison of unconcealed wrath to that of killing a plant. assist the comparison of concealed wrath to that of nurturing a plant. assist the comparison of concealed wrath to that of killing a plant. none of the above 9. Why is the apple in stanza 3 bright and shiny? (10 points) It alludes to the temptation of the Garden of Eden. It grows from a confessed wrath. It grows from a concealed wrath. both the first and second choices above both the first and third choices above 10. The poem ponders all of the following except: (10 points) Can anger be productive? Should anger be repressed or expressed? Should poetry be didactic? What happens when anger is expressed? What happens when anger is repressed?

    Here is what i got: the foe stole and ate the apple. Stanza 2 It grows from wrath. (possibly both the second and third choices above) None of the above wrath. Stanza 2 tree./none assist the comparison of concealed wrath to that of nurturing a plant. both the first and third choices above What happens when anger is expressed? Keep in mind i did this kind of in a hurry though, and i am undecided on a few of the answers; perhaps a 2nd opinion would be nice

    well check out those websites mentioned. But be careful i think its tree. Those literary devices that the persona uses are very tricky and may change your point of view! in poems some things are not what they seem to be. ok?
