Question
Why did Shakespeare use iambic pentameter for the dialogue of noble characters, while commoners often spoke in black verse or prose?
Solution 1

He did it to show the difference in their status and education.

Iambic pentameter is an elevated style, and Shakespeare created noble and educated characters who spoke in it. On the other hand, there were commoners who obviously did not belong to the same class as the nobles and did not receive the same education (if they had any education to begin with) so he wanted to show those differences through their speech. Nobles spoke in iambic pentameters, and commoners in blank verse or prose.

Solution 2
It possibly could be because the nobility had a more refined speech pattern, while the uneducated commoners spoke a vernacular form of English

Question
Then the weather clouded over. That was on Wednesday the eve of the Party. Anxiety was intense. Then Thursday, September the 22nd, actually dawned. The sun got up, the clouds vanished, flags were unfurled and the fun began. Bilbo Baggins called it a party, but it was really a variety of entertainments rolled into one. Practically everybody living near was invited. A very few were overlooked by accident, but as they turned up all the same, that did not matter. What do readers learn about the setting in this excerpt? The weather is cloudy on the day of the party. The community anxiously awaits the gathering. Only a few neighbors are invited to the party. Only Bilbo is concerned with the weather.
Solution 1

Readers learn that the community anxiously awaits the gathering when it comes to the setting in the excerpt, as is explained below. (option B)

What is setting?

We can define setting is the context in which a story takes place. Setting includes everything that surrounds the characters:

  • The place
  • The time
  • The society
  • The weather

After reading the passage, we can eliminate option A because we learn the clouds disappear on the day of the party. We can also eliminate option C because a lot of people were invited. We can eliminate option D because all are worried about the weather before the party.

The correct answer is option B. We clearly learn from the excerpt that the community anxiously awaits the gathering when it says, "Anxiety was intense."

Solution 1

Answer:

A) a desire to retreat from society when necessary.

Explanation:

In Walden, Henry David Thoreau describes his experiences living at a cabin in the forest for two years. Thoreau tells us that he engaged in this experiment in order to be away from society for a while. He believed that this would strengthen his spirit and resolve. He also believed that this would make him more self-reliant, which he argues, is a characteristic that all people should have. Finally, this experience helps him reconnect with nature.
