15 POINTS URGENT And now we knew, we learned, we discovered that the Pentagon knew, the State Department knew. And the illustrious occupant of the White House then, who was a great leader and I say it with some anguish and pain, because, today is exactly 54 years marking his death Franklin Delano Roosevelt died on April the 12th, 1945. So he is very much present to me and to us. No doubt, he was a great leader. He mobilized the American people and the world, going into battle, bringing hundreds and thousands of valiant and brave soldiers in America to fight fascism, to fight dictatorship, to fight Hitler. And so many of the young people fell in battle. And, nevertheless, his image in Jewish history I must say it his image in Jewish history is flawed.

Miguel sat in amazement. It was his first time in a basketball arena. He could smell the recently polished wood and hear the squeak of the players’ sneakers on the floor. Which technique is the author using in the passage?
The correct answer is imagery.
Imagery technique is the use of figurative language to represent objects, actions and ideas in such a way that it appeals to our physical senses.
Imagery technique has to create visual representation of ideas in the reader's mind and to appeal to bodily senses.
Miguel could smell the recently polished wood and hear the squeak of the players' sneakers on the floor - here Miguel's experience is magnified by the use of the words smell and squeak, which apply directly to the readers' senses and make the passage more visual to them.
Analyze the final quote of the novel: “Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. it eluded is then, but that’s no matter—tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther ... and one fine morning—so we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past” (Fitzgerald 189)
This quote focuses on the idea that sometimes, no matter how hard people try, they cannot achieve their goals or deepest desires. They reach out further and further for one thing or someone and never get to it. Some never lose hope and "stretch out their arms farther", but that doesn't mean they'll get there. They have more optimism. These final words are just about Gatsby's struggle to achieve the American dream and his dream girl and the unfortunate events that follow his endeavors.

In the concluding scene of the novel, Rose of Sharon is transformed into a Virgin Mary−like figure who is ready to sacrifice for others despite her sorrow. Viewed in the light of the other images that Steinbeck uses, what does Rose of Sharon's pregnancy likely symbolize? an end to great suffering a time of great pain and sorrow the helplessness of humans the promise of a new beginning
