    and i needed help on these questions too, 11. Which of these excerpts from Alexander Pope’s The Rape of the Lock most explicitly suggests that it is a parody of epic poetry? (1 point) And cheifs contend till all the prize is lost! coffe makes the politician wise. Fate closed the scissors, cutting the Sylph in half... Oh thoughtless mortals! ever blind to fate... 12. read this excerpt from alexander Pope's The Rape of the Lock. "No common weapons in their hands are found/like gods they fight, nor dread a mortal wound.../see, fierce belinda on the baron flies,/with more than usual lightning in her eyes..." This account of the conflict between belind and the baron _______ Uses satire to ridicule the upper classes Uses irony to portray the ruling classes as noble Uses sarcasm to indicate contempt for the lower classes Used understatement to downplay the rift between the classes 13. Read this excerpt from jonathans swift's A Modest Proposal. "The number of souls in Ireland being usually reckoned one million and a half, of these i calculate there may be about two hundrew thousand couples whosewinves are breeder, from which number i subtract thirty thousand couples, who are able to maintain their own children..." Why does Swift include these sorts of "facts and statistics" in his essay? To make hisuse ofverbal irony more effective. To reinforce his stated arguments to head off opposition to his stated arguments to demonstrate that he is well-educated 14. Read this sentence from Jonathan Swift's A Modest Proposal. "I grant this food will be somewhat dear, and therefore very proper for landlords,who as they have already devoured most of the parents, seem to have the best title to the children." What statement is swift making in this sentence? The financially secure can afford to buy good food. Greedy irish propertyowners exploit the helpless poor. Landlords should have authority over those who livein their buildings. It is the responsibility of parents to provide foor for their landlords. 15. Read this excerpt from jonathans swift's A Modest Proposal. "after all i am not so violently bent upon my own opinion as to reject any offer, proposed by wise men, which shall be found equally innocent, cheap, easy, and effectual. But before something of that kind shall be advanced in contradiction to my scheme, and offering a better, I desire the author orauthors will be pleased maturely to consider two points." What point is swift making in A Modest Proposal by discounting other possible (and more humane) solutions to the poverty of the irish? That there are no realistic solutions to poverty. That these solutions could actually be pursued. That people should not pay taxes to support others' children That tenants should be evicted if they do not pay their rent 16. Which line of Thomas Gray's Elegy Written in a country Churchyard ponders the existence of unrecognized human potential? For them no more the blazing hearth shall burn... One morn I missed him on the custom'd hill... Full many a flow'r is born to blush unseen... The plowman homeward plods his weary way...
