Which lines in this excerpt from Mary Otis warren's poem "a political revenge use figurative language

Figurative language will be When justice holds his sceptre oer the land, and rescues freedom from a tyrant's hand. And virtue rear her long dejected head ; her standard plant beneath these gladden'd skies, her fame extend, and arts and science rise; While empire's lofty spreading sails unfurl'd , Rollls swiftly on towards the western world.

Which lines in this excerpt from act V of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet create dramatic irony? ROMEO: Death, that hath suck'd the honey of thy breath, Hath had no power yet upon thy beauty: Thou art not conquer'd; beauty's ensign yet Is crimson in thy lips and in thy cheeks, And death's pale flag is not advanced there. Tybalt, liest thou there in thy bloody sheet? O, what more favour can I do to thee, Than with that hand that cut thy youth in twain To sunder his that was thine enemy? Forgive me, cousin! Ah, dear Juliet, Why art thou yet so fair? shall I believe That unsubstantial death is amorous, And that the lean abhorred monster keeps Thee here in dark to be his paramour? For fear of that, I still will stay with thee; And never from this palace of dim night Depart again: here, here will I remain With worms that are thy chamber-maids; O, here Will I set up my everlasting rest, And shake the yoke of inauspicious stars From this world-wearied flesh. Eyes, look your last! Arms, take your last embrace! and, lips, O you The doors of breath, seal with a righteous kiss A dateless bargain to engrossing death! Come, bitter conduct, come, unsavoury guide! Thou desperate pilot, now at once run on The dashing rocks thy sea-sick weary bark! Here's to my love!

Answer: Hath had no power yet upon thy beauty:  

Thou art not conquer'd; beauty's ensign yet  

Is crimson in thy lips and in thy cheeks,  

And death's pale flag is not advanced there.  

Explanation: Since Juliet is not dead Romeo says her lips are red and she is not pale so that is dramatically ironic because he doesn't know that she is alive and he will kill himself afterwards.

Which excerpt is an example of metonymy? A. “Since Number Five is out of the bathroom now,” B. “We think of lukewarm water and hope to get in it.” C. “I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence” D. “I watch you wrapped up like garbage”

The excerpt which is an example of metonymy is A, “Since Number Five is out of the bathroom now,”. “Number Five” refers to someone with a higher position or authority than others.  

EXPLANATION:  

If the answer to that question is “Since Number Five is out of the bathroom,” so, what is metonymy? Metonymy is a literary device. It is a figure of speech that replaces or changes the term of things with the term of something else. Those two terms of things have to be similar or associated. For example is “Number Five” which is associated with “person with high authority or position.” “Number Five” is the metonymy of “person with high authority or position.”

Thus, how can we know that it is metonymy? How can we differentiate it from synecdoche? Synecdoche and metonymy are almost the same. Synecdoche is also a figure of speech that replaces the name of a thing with another name, yet, it is part of it. For example, we call “a car” as “a wheel.” it is a synecdoche because “wheel” is part of a car. Yet, metonymy is different. It replaces the name of a thing with another name which is not part of it. For example, we call “a power” as “a crown”. Crown is not part of power. Yet, it can be used to address power.  

Here are examples of metonymy in literature:

1. An excerpt from Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare, which is said by Mark Anthony.  

“Friends, Romans, and countrymen, lend me your ears.”  

The word “ears” said Mark Anthony is the replacement of “attention”. It is a metonymy  

 

2. An excerpt from Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell said by Scarlett.  

“I’m mighty glad Georgia waited till after Christmas before it secedes……”

 “Georgia” is the replacement of everything in Georgia, including its citizens, government, and politicians.

1. Which is the best paraphrase of the first paragraph? THE HIGH SCHOOL STEP TEAM Karla's cousin Jade urged her to join the step team."This afternoon you should defiantly try out!" Jade suggested after the final bell rang. "I know she wants the best for me," Karla thought to herself," but I'm not sure I'd be any good, and I'd feel embarrassed if I messed up in front of others." Karla had seen step teams in action: they stomped, they clapped, and they performed all kinds of synchronized moves "Our team is not as amazing as professional steppers, but we have a lot of fun!" Jade said. "Also, if you join the team, you will instantly have forty new friends!" "I like the idea of forty new friends," Karla thought to herself. "Still, I'm worried about bringing up my math grade. I'd better play it safe for now" she decided. "I really appreciate your concern, but I've got to say no thanks for now" Karla told Jade. " I'm going for after school help in math" As Karla turned away from Jade and walked down the hall towards math class, she pictured her cousin shrugging her shoulders "Okay do whatever you think is best," Jade said. I'll see you at home" Karla went to the after school math session. The work was challenging and she had to concentrate, and she The teacher said nice things to Karla about her efforts to grasp the ideas the were studying "And yet" Karla thought" I still have a lot of work and study ahead of me" When the afterschool math session ended Karla peeked into the gym. "Hey that's my cousin!" Jade cried out. "Come over here Karla." Forty male and female students stopped in midroutine to look at Karla. Too embarrassed to refuse , she joined one of the lines Karla soon learned that stepping requires a lot of mental energy. "It's something like math" she thought silently, "but not exactly the same. I have to connect my brain to my body and make it move or stop at exactly the right moment. The key here is to execute every movement skillfully" Very soon, Karla had mastered the teams trademark "Slap-finger-snap-slap-slap-stomp That night, Karla got to work on math At first ,she felt guilty about the time she spent in gym. Then she reminded herself of the of saying."All work and no play make Jack a dull boy." An English teacher once told her the origins of the cliché go all the way back to ancient Egypt. As Karla Worked she was surprised to find that she suddenly understood her algebra problems better than she had before. "there must be some carryover effect from step practice," she concluded. The concentration and focus that she exercised in step team practice seemed to help her focus more clearly on her math. Karla smiled as she thought," Who would have guessed that spending time with step team might be more helpful to my math grade than spending time on math work?" Later Karla was as much as a member of the step team as anybody" I don't feel the least bit embarrassed anymore" She told Jade "When I am stepping I feel completely focused on the rhythm of the team and working together with my forty new friends. •After school , jade tells her cousin Karla to try out for the step team . •Jade cares about her cousin Karla and makes a suggestion to her. •Karla listens as her cousin jade tells her about being on the step team. •Karla hears the bell ring and runs into her cousin jade.

  • After school, Jade tells her cousin Karla to try out for the step team.

In the first paragraph Jade is trying to convice Karla to join the step team. It goes on to talk about how Karla is nervous about trying out because she doesn't want to mess up in front of others. While Jade cares about Karla, it isn't the most important part of the paragraph.
