What theme of the play Hamlet is apparent in these lines? Alexander was buried, Alexander returneth to dust; the dust is
earth; of earth we make loam; and why of that loam whereto he
was converted might they not stop a beer-barrel?
Imperious Caesar, dead and turn'd to clay,
Might stop a hole to keep the wind away.


I believe the answer is morality becaue both Ceasar and Alexander were great man that you wouldnt beilieve could die but they did because in the end they are only human. All things that live musg die thats pretty much morality.

Hamlet is one of Shakespeare's most troubled characters, and he contemplates on life and death quite a lot. In these lines it is apparent that death is inevitable, it will come for us all no matter who we are. Both Alexander and Caesar were once great men, it seemed it was impossible for them to die. But they did, the same way every living creature will eventually. We will die, and turn to dust, then to earth, and so on. No one can escape that fate, no matter how hard we try. Regardless who you are in life, you will share the same doom with every other creature that once lived.

In "An Indian Father's Plea," what does Medicine Grizzlybear Lake ask the teacher to do for Wind-Wolf? A. Teach him the white man's way so that he can fit in
B. Let him fail the class so he can come home
C. Give him a second chance and treat him more fairly
D. Make the class easier for him because of his background



The correct answer is option C. "Give him a second chance and treat him more fairly".


In "An Indian Father's Plea" by Robert Lake, Medicine Grizzlybear believes in his son Wind-Wolf, therefore he argues with his teacher because he labeled his son as a slow learner. The teacher wrongly labeled Wind-Wolf because he didn't understand the way Native Americans learn. Medicine Grizzlybear instead of asking for making things easier for Wind-Wolf, he asks the teacher to give him a second chance and treat him fairly, as any child in his classroom.

C. Give him a second chance and treat him more fairly

Little, artful, cowering, timid beast, Oh, what a panic is in your heart!
You need not start away so hasty
With bickering prattle!
I would be loath to run and chase you,
With murdering scraper

I'm truly sorry man's dominion
Has broken Nature's social union,
And justifies that ill opinion
Which makes you startle
At me, your poor, earth born companion
And fellow mortal!

I doubt not, sometimes, that you may steal;
What then? Poor beast, you must live!
An odd ear in twenty-four sheaves
Is a small request;
I will get a blessing with what is left,
And never miss it.

Your small house, too, in ruin!
Its feeble walls the winds are scattering!
And nothing now, to build a new one,
Of coarse green foliage!
And bleak December's winds coming,
Both bitter and piercing!

You saw the fields laid bare and empty,
And weary winter coming fast,
And cozy here, beneath the blast,
You thought to dwell,
Till crash! The cruel plough passed
Out through your cell.

That small heap of leaves and stubble,
Has cost you many a weary nibble!
Now you are turned out, for all your trouble,
Without house or holding,
To endure the winter's sleety dribble,
And hoar-frost cold.

But Mouse, you are not alone,
In proving foresight may be vain:1
The best laid schemes of mice and men
Go often askew,
And leave us nothing but grief and pain,
For promised joy!

Still you are blessed, compared with me!
The present only touches you:
But oh! I backward cast my eye,
On prospects dreary!
And forward, though I cannot see,
I guess and fear!

How does the poet’s comparison of mice and humans in the final two stanzas contribute to the poem’s overall meaning?


In stanza seven, comparing mice and humans, the author Robert Burns suggests that foresight and planning the future can go wrong for everyone, either mice or humans.

However, in the final stanza Burns still considers the mouse fortunate, because it is only aware of the present moment. It is a human attribute to look at the past and to fear what the future has to bring.

The cherry orchard comedy or tragedy, with evidence preferably



Written in the background of socio-political changes in Russia, the play "The Cherry Orchard" has been viewed by critics with tragic aspects of an aristocratic family which remains unable to save itself from the loss of its beloved estate, yet the playwright has clearly stated that he meant the play a comedy and farce. In fact, the play may, perhaps, be viewed as a combination of both. We may possibly view the play as a tragi-comedy: "a play that combines the elements of tragedy and comedy, either by providing a happy ending to a potentially tragic story or by some more complex blending of serious and light moods...". The play depicts the fall of Russian aristocracy and the emergence of middle class with the emancipation of the serfs. In the wake of socio-political scenario, prime theme of the play is change. Time demands certain adjustments and changes in the characters which the characters fail to display. The major characters behave in ridiculously stupid manner in their acts. This political and social change is described from a comic and farcical aspect by the author. Though the playwright has provided certain tragic and elements in the play, yet he wishes to take the play in a light hearted manner. The author has successfully blended the two aspects to present the failure of characters in saving their orchard from being taken away. The author has described the realistic significance of the actions of the characters regardless of the intentions and desires of the characters. The outcome of the play is what the characters have been in action and not what they wanted to be. Lyubov Ranevsky , an aristocratic lady, She is one of the main characters of the play. She fails to resolve the problems relating to her estate as well as the issues of her family and herself. She does not act when it is needed to though she claims "I cannot sit motionless". In past, she has been cheated in love. Her son died of drowning. Now, she has been under a cloud. She is under a lot of debt. She has already sold the bungalow. Her estate is due for auction for recovery of the debts. "There is nothing left now". She fails to save anything at all because she is a bit too emotional and she "doesn't seem to understand". She is a sort of indifferent to her family life. She cannot adapt herself to the social change which has taken place. Lopakhin gives her a reasonable solution of avoiding the public auction. But she does nothing to save herself and her family from the disgrace and loss of their pride. She is just an emotional fool that can't control her feelings: "I just can't help myself; I know I am a fool".
