Which answer best describes the effect of alliteration in the following line from Yeats’ “The Lake Isle of Innisfree”? I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore A. by repeating the “l” sound, the poet is striving to create a gentle, lulling effect that imitates the musicality of the waves B. the “l” sound just happens to be there; the poet did not intend any significance C. He used the “l” sound to remind the readers of the lake D. the “l” sound is there for emphasis

    Never think of answers such as B. That's closed-minded thinking. Same with D. There's usually another reason. I don't know about you, but the sound of "l" doesn't make me think of lakes, so it wouldn't be C. Your answer would be A. It adds that sort of effect to it

    “Pass it along, the wiring party’s going out”— And yawning sentries mumble, “Wirers going out.” Unraveling; twisting; hammering stakes with muffled thud, They toil with stealthy haste and anger in their blood.” How does the author use ambiguity to portray the tone in these lines? A. Certain words such as “Party’s” could have more than one meaning and reveals sarcasm in the author’s tone. B. The ambiguity is seen in the author’s use of “Anger” and “Blood,” which shows his anger about the war. C. The author is actually happy about the war as the wiring party keeps out the bad guys. D. There is no ambiguity shown in the text. @Zedditup i only have one more after this one

    I actually think that there is no ambiguity. Ambiguity is uncertainty or indecisiveness. A is the closest to that, but it then proceeds to tell us that it's because of sarcasm. B and C are solid opinions, so I think it's D

    How do we know that the narrator from “Mrs. Dalloway,” by Virginia Woolf, is told in the third-person omniscient?” A. The narrator describes what the characters are thinking, and feeling, and also uses “he” or “she” when referring to characters. B. The narrator uses “I” and “Me” when telling the story and does not know what other characters are thinking. C. The narrator only shares what he or she can see from the character’s actions. D. The narrator does not describe what the characters are thinking and uses “he” or “she” when referring to characters. @Zedditup

    B suggests first person, so that's not it at all. C shows normal 3rd person. D would be just the opposite of omniscient. Your answer would be A, as that's what 3rd person omniscient is. (Argued with a teacher about this once lol)
