“Heroes’ wits are kept there in heavy vases,/and wits of fancy lords in snuffboxes and tweezer cases.” This excerpt from Pope’s The Rape of the Lock _________. 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 uses understatement to downplay the rift between the classes

I've read it over, what is it specifically that your looking for help on in this question? As a side note, I've never even heard of this type of writing. I'm intrigued actually! :)
Atsie
  • Atsie

brandon554
  • brandon554
its A that's the only one that makes sense to me
RCCB
  • RCCB
I want to say its either A or C, A would be my answer so i would have to agree with Brandon
brandon554
  • brandon554
he mocks the upper class so it has to be A
brandon554
  • brandon554
just as an explanation so you see why :)
Atsie
  • Atsie
I'd say D, and the reason is because it isn't a question of hero's being better than fancy Lords. Its not a matter of anyone being better than each other. Its more of a downplaying of both. Whoo puts the wits of hero's into heavy vases and the wits of fancy lords in snuffboxes, unless you are trying understate the mentality of both of these. Thats what makes sense to me anyhow.

brandon554
  • brandon554

RCCB
  • RCCB
abortion seems like the right choice
brandon554
  • brandon554

Read this excerpt from Jonathan 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 or authors 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
brandon554
  • brandon554
I would say its B
RCCB
  • RCCB
brb i think the answer is B
RCCB
  • RCCB
he says hes not so violently bent upon my own opinion as to reject any offer, saying he may except some offers
Atsie
  • Atsie
At first I thought it was A, but that doesn't even seem like the point he is trying to push across. I would have to agree with B myself. He sounds so evil about it!
brandon554
  • brandon554
right exactly what I was typing and I did think a too I read it 5x before answering
Atsie
  • Atsie
Same @brandon554 . I think I read it 10 times tho!

Read this excerpt from Thomas Gray’s Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard. “Perhaps in this neglected field is laid/Some heart once pregnant with celestial fire;/Hands, that the rod of empire might have sway’d,/or wak’d to ecstasy the living lyre.” Who is Gray pondering with these lines? people who rose from poverty to become successful people who chose obscurity over success people who provided better lives for their children than they themselves had people who could have been great if given the opportunity
Atsie
  • Atsie
I choose B again for that one, because it sounds like he's implying these people had dreams of some sort rather it be success or something else but they choose the obscurity route. Maybe or maybe not, my point is made by the line..."Some heart once pregnant with celestial fire;" If not that, I'd also take into consideration of D. It reads like there is regret of some sort going on.
RCCB
  • RCCB
to me it sounds like it was someone once powerful and well know, and they have lost that, which the closest answer to that would be B, they have given up power and being well known for a quite life I guess you could say. So my answer would also be B
brandon554
  • brandon554
sorry was away its b I agree with you two

What techniques does Pope use to weave humor into the poem The Rape of the Lock? Explain why the techniques are humorous. I have personification, metaphors, and satire. I just need examples out of his story for them three.
brandon554
  • brandon554
I need to see the poem I haven't read it sorry :/
Atsie
  • Atsie
There was more to the poem then just that one line “Heroes’ wits are kept there in heavy vases,/and wits of fancy lords in snuffboxes and tweezer cases.” Right? Because if so, I need all of it to make my complete assessment.
brandon554
  • brandon554
