1. Read the excerpt from Rose in Bloom by Louisa May Alcott: But in spite of that the Don got through college with all the honors. Oh, wasn't I proud when Aunt Jane wrote to us about it and didn't she rejoice that her boy kept at the head of his class and won the medal!" cried Rose, shaking Mac by both hands in a way that caused Charlie to wish "the old chap" had been left behind with Dr. Alec. "Oh, come, that's all Mother's nonsense. I began earlier than the other fellows and liked it better, so I don't deserve any praise. Prince is right, though. I did make a regular jack of myself, but on the whole I'm not sure that my wild oats weren't better than some I've seen sowed. Anyway, they didn't cost much, and I'm none the worse for them," said Mac placidly. "I know what 'wild oats' means. I heard Uncle Mac say Charlie was sowing 'em too fast, and I asked Mama, so she told me. And I know that he was suspelled or expended, I don't remember which, but it was something bad, and Aunt Clara cried," added Jamie all in one breath, for he possessed a fatal gift of making malapropos remarks, which caused him to be a terror to his family. "Do you want to go on the box again?" demanded Prince with a warning frown. "No, I don't." "Then hold your tongue." "Well, Mac needn't kick me, for I was only..." began the culprit, innocently trying to make a bad matter worse. What can we infer from this passage? Charlie is envious of Mac's success. Jamie is attempting to make Charlie look foolish. ****Prince is Jamie's father, and feels responsible for his discipline. Mac is boastful of his achievements. 2. Read the excerpt from Moby wingspan by Herman Melville: Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people's hats off-then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can. From this passage, what can we best infer about the narrator? He uses the ocean as a way to escape depression. **** He dislikes the monotony of everyday life. He is suicidal and wants to cause pain to others as well. He obsesses over death in the wintertime. 3. Read the following poem: "When You Are Old" By William Butler Yeats When you are old and grey and full of sleep, And nodding by the fire, take down this book, And slowly read, and dream of the soft look Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep; How many loved your moments of glad grace, And loved your beauty with love false or true, But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you, And loved the sorrows of your changing face; And bending down beside the glowing bars, Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled And paced upon the mountains overhead And hid his face amid a crowd of stars. Why most likely did the author capitalize the word "Love"? In this poem, Love is the "you" to whom the author is referring. The author is assigning human qualities to Love to represent his own feelings. Love is representative of all humanity. Love is the name of a suitor of the object of the poem. 4. Read the following poem: "When You Are Old" By William Butler Yeats When you are old and grey and full of sleep, And nodding by the fire, take down this book, And slowly read, and dream of the soft look ****Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep; How many loved your moments of glad grace, And loved your beauty with love false or true, But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you, And loved the sorrows of your changing face; And bending down beside the glowing bars, Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled And paced upon the mountains overhead And hid his face amid a crowd of stars. For what is the phrase "full of sleep" a metaphor? exhaustion old age **** the end of the day near death 5. Read the following poem: "Love's Grave" By George Meredith Mark where the pressing wind shoots javelin-like, Its skeleton shadow on the broad-back'd wave! Here is a fitting spot to dig Love's grave; Here where the ponderous breakers plunge and strike, And dart their hissing tongues high up the sand: In hearing of the ocean, and in sight Of those ribb'd wind-streaks running into white. If I the death of Love had deeply plann'd, I never could have made it half so sure, As by the unblest kisses which upbraid The full-waked sense; or failing that, degrade! 'Tis morning: but no morning can restore What we have forfeited. I see no sin: The wrong is mix'd. In tragic life, God wot, No villain need be! Passions spin the plot: We are betray'd by what is false within. Which of the following phrases in this poem serves as an instance of onomatopoeia? **** "pressing wind" "plunge and strike" "hissing tongues" "unblest kisses" 6. Read the excerpt: "The Flowers" By William Brighty Rands When Love arose in heart and deed To wake the world to greater joy, 'What can she give me now?' said Greed, Who thought to win some costly toy. He rose, he ran, he stoop'd, he clutch'd; And soon the Flowers, that Love let fall, In Greed's hot grasp were fray'd and smutch'd, And Greed said, 'Flowers! Can this be all?' He flung them down and went his way, He cared no jot for thyme or rose; But boys and girls came out to play, And some took these and some took those— Red, blue, and white, and green and gold; And at their touch the dew return'd, And all the bloom a thousandfold— So red, so ripe, the roses burn'd! What types of sensory details are used to create the majority of the imagery in this poem? smell **** sight touch taste 7. Read the excerpt: "The Flowers" By William Brighty Rands When Love arose in heart and deed To wake the world to greater joy, 'What can she give me now?' said Greed, Who thought to win some costly toy. He rose, he ran, he stoop'd, he clutch'd; And soon the Flowers, that Love let fall, In Greed's hot grasp were fray'd and smutch'd, And Greed said, 'Flowers! Can this be all?' He flung them down and went his way, He cared no jot for thyme or rose; But boys and girls came out to play, And some took these and some took those— Red, blue, and white, and green and gold; And at their touch the dew return'd, And all the bloom a thousandfold— So red, so ripe, the roses burn'd! Which of the following is an example of imagery? "To wake the world to greater joy" "He rose, he ran, he stoop'd, he clutch'd" "And soon the Flowers, that Love let fall," **** "So red, so ripe, the roses burn'd!" 8. Read the excerpt from The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain: "The stars were shining, and the leaves rustled in the woods ever so mournful; and I heard an owl, away off, who-whooing about somebody that was dead, and a whippoorwill and a dog crying about somebody that was going to die; and the wind was trying to whisper something to me, and I couldn't make out what it was, and so it made the cold shivers run over me. Then away out in the woods I heard that kind of a sound that a ghost makes when it wants to tell about something that's on its mind and can't make itself understood, and so can't rest easy in its grave, and has to go about that way every night grieving." The author's word choices help to create what feeling? **** anticipation depression longing fear 9. Read the excerpt from Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte: "Returning, I had to cross before the looking-glass; my fascinated glance involuntarily explored the depth it revealed. All looked colder and darker in that visionary hollow than in reality: and the strange little figure there gazing at me, with a white face and arms specking the gloom, and glittering eyes of fear moving where all else was still, had the effect of a real spirit: I thought it like one of the tiny phantoms, half fairy, half imp, Bessie's evening stories represented as coming out of lone, ferny dells in moors, and appearing before the eyes of belated travelers. I returned to my stool." Which set of words best contributes to the emotions of the excerpt? *** "fascinated," "explored," "revealed" "gazing," "glittering eyes," "eyes of belated travelers" "darker," "gloom," "a real spirit" "fairy," "evening stories," "lone, ferny dells" 10. Read the excerpt of "The Man with the Hoe" by Charles Edward Anson Markham, under the penname Edwin Markham: Is this the Thing the Lord God made and gave To have dominion over sea and land; To trace the stars and search the heavens for power; To feel the passion of Eternity? Is this the dream He dreamed who shaped the suns And marked their ways upon the ancient deep? What can we infer about the author's feelings toward the man in the painting and the poem? He pities the man, and wishes someone would have mercy on him. He is disappointed that mankind has sunk so far as to only be engaged in manual labor. *** He believes that God is punishing mankind for its excesses. He is angry at the fate of humanity and is questioning God. 11. Read the excerpt of "The Man with the Hoe" by Charles Edward Anson Markham, under the penname Edwin Markham: Bowed by the weight of centuries he leans Upon his hoe and gazes on the ground, The emptiness of ages in his face, And on his back, the burden of the world. What has inspired Markham to write these lines? A man who works in his fields **** A lifetime of oppression A painting by Jean-François Millet A reflection of his social class 12. Read the excerpt of "The Man with the Hoe" by Charles Edward Anson Markham, under the penname Edwin Markham: Bowed by the weight of centuries he leans Upon his hoe and gazes on the ground, The emptiness of ages in his face, And on his back, the burden of the world. Who made him dead to rapture and despair, A thing that grieves not and that never hopes, Stolid and stunned, a brother to the ox? Who loosened and let down this brutal jaw? Whose was the hand that slanted back this brow? Whose breath blew out the light within this brain? Which of these do we explicitly see in the painting Man with a Hoe? *** "the light within this brain" "rapture and despair" "this brutal jaw" "emptiness of ages" 13. Read the excerpt of "The Man with the Hoe" by Charles Edward Anson Markham, under the penname Edwin Markham: Is this the Thing the Lord God made and gave To have dominion over sea and land; To trace the stars and search the heavens for power; To feel the passion of Eternity? Is this the dream He dreamed who shaped the suns And marked their ways upon the ancient deep? Down all the caverns of Hell to their last gulf There is no shape more terrible than this-- More tongued with cries against the world's blind greed-- More filled with signs and portents for the soul-- More packed with danger to the universe. What relationship does the use of the word "Thing" to describe the man have with the painting that is the poem's inspiration? 'Thing' is the name of the man, which is in the subtitle of the painting. The author wants to compare the man to the hoe he is leaning on. The author has no respect for the man because he has given up on his work and is standing idle. ** The author believes that the man in the painting no longer seems like a man, but an object with no emotion. 14. From the picture, what might you assume about the article that it is from? The article is about revolutionary modes of transportation. **** The article is about a major war in the Middle Ages. The article is about medieval weaponry. The article is about farming tools in 17th century America. 15. People in old-fashioned clothing stand around an outdoor stage, upon which there is an angel surrounded by three men. The crowd includes people of all ages, including children. From the picture, what might you assume about the article that it is from? ***The article is about women in the public eye in medieval Europe.
