Which sentence is an example of evidence from a primary source? a.She was one of the few women in the Victorian era who pushed the boundaries and laid the groundwork for future feminists. b.Through her character Jane Eyre, Charlotte Brontë created an ideal female protagonist who refuses to submit to the rules set by the patriarchal society. c. For example, in the novel her character says, "Women are supposed to be very calm generally: but women feel just as men feel; they need exercise for their faculties, and a field for their efforts, as much as their brothers do; they suffer from too rigid a restraint, too absolute a stagnation, precisely as men would suffer." d.

Need help to write a 5 paragraph essay with including a thesis about the book "Night". What does the Blockalteste mean by his statement when he tells Eliezer " In this place, it is every man for himself, and you cannot think of others. Not even your father. In this place, there is no such thing as father, brother, friend. Each of us lives and dies alone." Is what he says true for Eliezer? Is it true for other characters in the book? In what way? Explain if this is true for people today. Explain whether you believe the Blockalteste's statement is true for Eliezer and his father in the story. Provide evidence from the book in the form of quotes and paraphrase.

When Blockalteste states this statement he is telling Eliezer that he must survive by thinking of no-one else but himself. Blockalteste is telling Elie to give up on his father, and basically, let him die. Elie... did considor this, but immediately after it crossed his mind he felt very guilty. Elie must care for his very ill father because to do otherwise would mean he had become as evil as the germans.

Blockaltestes statement did not apply to Eliezer, because he went back to help his father, instead of leaving him to die with no help at all. I believe his statement applied to many others of the camp, though.  “Our first act as free men was to throw ourselves onto the provisions. That’s all we thought about. No thought of revenge, or of parents. Only of bread.” (115) This is evidence that people of the camp thought of only themselves. If it meant for family to die, then so be it. Today, people would dodge bullets for family, because they have never experienced what they had experienced. What we think is the worst, is nothing compared to their worst. Elie must care for his very ill father because to do otherwise would mean he became as evil as the germans.

I don't believe Blockaltestes statement applied to Elie because after his father had passed, nothing mattered to him. meaning, that during the time Elie's father was alive, that's all that mattered to him. “I remained in Buchenwald until April 11. I shall not describe my life during that period. It no longer mattered. Since my father’s death, nothing mattered to me anymore.” (113) Not bread, not water, his father is all that mattered. Elie must care for his father because to do otherwise would mean he had become as evil as the germans.

“I did not weep, and it pained me that I could not weep. But I was out of tears. And deep inside me, if I could have searched the recesses of my feeble conscience, I might have found something like: Free at last!” (112) I think it pained Elie to see his father like that, and that's why he felt so free afterwards. This feeling of freedom wasn't because he felt like he didn't have to share his rations of bread with his father, or he didn't have to give him his water, I think it was more of him feeling like he didn't have to watch his father slowly dying. Elie must care for his very ill father because if to do otherwise it would mean he had become as evil as the germans.

One of the most painful situations and preoccupying thoughts that trouble young Elie involve the ways in which father-son relationships are torn asunder by the camps. He watches as sons deny—or at least consider denying—care to their fathers, putting their own interests before familial ties. Elie struggles with the same conflict when his father becomes ill, and when his father finally dies, Elie is profoundly sad though also proud that he never wholly compromised his own beliefs about family. The reason that Elie finds the deterioration of father-son relationships so painful is that the maintenance of this relationship seems to be the last barrier between the world that is semi-normal and one that has completely been turned upside down. Elie must continue to care for his ailing father because to do otherwise would mean that he had become as evil as the Germans.

A character steps out of her home and into a thick fog. Based on what you know about fog, what might it symbolize about the character? (5 points) The character is angry about something. The character is confident about something. The character is confused about something. The character is happy about something.

The correct answer is:

The character is confused about something.

I say this because when you're walking, or driving, and there's a fog, you can't really see everything. You have to turn on your head lights or walk carefully because you can't fully see what's in front of you.

3. An author uses a road to symbolize a character's journey. It is an unpaved road that is covered with rocks, holes, and mud. What type of journey does the road most likely symbolize? (5 points) A journey that leads to great riches A journey that offers many choices A journey that presents many challenges A journey that proves very easy

A journey that presents many challenges. 'Unpaved' showing it's not built, you gotta build it (build your future) and 'rocks' 'holes' and 'mud' obviously signifies trouble showing there are many challenges to face in the way.

Grendel and Beowulf, compare and contrast the characteristics of monsters and heroes. Answer in a paragraph of eight to ten sentences, making sure to include evidence from the poem to support your ideas.

Beowulf is a classic hero of Anglo-Saxon literature. He appears when the king is most in need and saves the day by defeating the monster which is terrorizing the village. He is strong and honorable, and cares deeply for his countrymen who help him on his endeavors. Once he becomes king, he rules justly, and fights his last battle with the dragon, even though he is quite old - but he knows that he has to protect his kingdom.
On the other had, Grendel is a classic villain in the story. He is evil, but not inherently per se, but because he is a monster, and everybody is afraid of him although he hadn't done anything bad in his "youth." However, he turns evil once he becomes jealous of the people who have everything he will never be able to have. Thus he murders them, until a strong warrior like Beowulf comes, and makes him scared for the first time in his life, before killing the monster, of course.
