I really appreciate you helping me earlier today but I have another poem by Wordsworth-Tintern Abbey
1.According to these lines, compared to his youth, Wordsworth see himself now as:
a.More responsible
b.Less happy
c.More aware of the world's problems
d.More serious
e.Less frivolous
The lines are: For I have learned To look on nature, not as in the hour Of thoughtless youth;but hearing oftentimes The still, sad music of humanity
I've eliminated less happy and concerned with world's problems so I'm thinking more serious but more responsible and less frivolous could also match-I zoomed into "Thoughtless youth" and trying to take the opposite now that he is older, more mature
2.Which of the following best summarizes the closing sentence of this section?
"Therefore am I still A lover of the meadows and the woods, and mountains and of all that we behold From this green earth;of all the mighty world Of eye and ear, both what they half create, And perceive; well pleased to recognize In nature and the language of the sense,The anchor of my purest thoughts, the nurse, the guide, the guardian of my heart and soul Of all my moral being."
possible answers:
a. I'm happy to discover that I am still able to love all nature with the same joy I did as a child
b.My love of Nature has become a welcome obsession that fills every aspect of my heart and soul
c.My love of nature has a healing power that restores me when I become disturbed and depressed
d.I look to nature as the anchor and nurse of my soul
e.The same motion and spirit that is within me and the recognition of this kinship makes me a lover of all nature
I eliminated a and b and I think d. So I'm thinking or leaning towards "e" Any opinions or comments would be appreciated. Thank you
