Homework Help: English

Posted by Henry 1 on Saturday, April 30, 2011 at 4:08am.

I still have the following doubts. I included the various alternatives. Thank you


1) Prospero calls Caliban a lying slave instead Miranda calls him a horrible slave. Is "instead" correct?
I would have used "while, whereas" or I would have started a new sentence with "Miranda, instead, calls him a horrible slave/ Miranda calls him... instead. (Can you please tell me which ones are possible?)
2) The settings are described in all the particulars. (correction: in every detail) Can I say "in every particular". Is the word "particular" possible in such a context?
3) Defoe doesn't revise (or didnt' revise) his work so his novels lack a coherent plot.
4)Caliban doesn't sympathize with them. (He doesn't get on well with Prospero and Miranda) Does "Sympathize" have the same meaning as "get on, have a good relationship"?
5) His novels are divided into different episodes linked by the presence of a hero. They had to be understood even by the less educated. (or even by less educated readers, is the sentence possible without "readers"?)
