Answer:

Hi there,

the answer to this would be B serious.

I think this is because the way they describe the Black Snake it look like its serious all the time. If you look back at your poem you will see context clues about the story and the characteristics of the Black Snake.

Hope this helped :)

PLEASENHELP ASAP!!! 20 POINTS!!!! Read the passages. Now Jim was a dreamer, but he was a thinker, too. And he thought one day that if he let his owner meet the cooter, he might get his freedom that way. After all, a talkin cooter was a wonderful thing to hear. So Jim went on back to the plantation. He found the slaveowner, and he says, “Mas, I wanter tell you about this cooter down there at the pond.” I ran away from the plantation and all who I knew there. I lived in the fields and in the woods. Even in caves. Sometimes I slept up in the tree branches. Or in a hay pile. I couldn’t get across the river now, it was watched so closely. Finally, I did get across. Late one night me and my wife went. I had gone back to the plantation to get her. Mr. Rankins had him a bell by this time, along with the light. We were rowin and rowin. We could see the light and hear that bell, but it seemed we weren't getting any closer. It took forever, it seemed. That was because we were so scared and it was so dark and we knew we could get caught and never get gone. —“Carrying the Running-Aways,” Virginia HamiltonRead the passages. Then, write two to three sentences comparing Jim’s viewpoint on escaping from slavery with the nonfiction narrator’s viewpoint on escaping from slavery.

Read the poems below and answer the question that follows. “Listening to Her Practice: My Middle Daughter, on the Edge of Adolescence, Learns to Play the Saxophone” by Barbara Cooker For Rebecca Her hair, that halo of red gold curls, has thickened, coarsened, lost its baby fineness, and the sweet smell of childhood that clung to her clothes has just about vanished. Now she’s getting moody, moaning about her hair, clothes that aren’t the right brands, boys that tease. She clicks over the saxophone keys with gritty fingernails polished in pink pearl, grass stains on the knees of her sister’s old designer jeans. She’s gone from sounding like the smoke detector through Old MacDonald and Jingle Bells. Soon she’ll master these keys, turn notes into liquid gold, wail that reedy brass. Soon, she’ll be a woman. She’s gonna learn to play the blues. Source: Cooker, Barbara. “Listening to Her Practice: My Middle Daughter, on the Edge of Adolescence, Learns to Play the Saxophe.” Ordinary Life.

Which statement is the most accurate comparison of the two poems?

A. Both poems deal with adolescence, but one is blank verse and the other is free verse.

B. Both poems use apostrophe, but only one includes allusions and metaphors.

C. Neither poem uses rhyme, but the poem by Lorde uses rhythm.

D. Both poems deal with adolescence but from different perspectives.

Answers

Answer:

I believe that the correct answer to the question would be A: Both poems deal with adolescence, but one is blank verse and the other is free verse.

Explanation:

The reason for this answer comes from understanding what a blank verse, and a free verse, poems are, and also why they would each apply to these two poems. In the case of Barbara Cooker´s poem, although there is no rhyme to her poem, there is a rythm that can be detected, especially in certain parts of the long stanza. This is the description of a blank verse, it is a poem that presents a rythm, but whose words are unrhymed. Whereas the second poem, "Hanging Fire", by Audre Lorde, does not present either of these characteristics, seeming more like the long diatribe of an adolescent who cannot settle on what they want to say, but think everything at once and want to express everything at once. This is the description of a free verse poem. This is why the answer would be A.

i believe the answer is A
