    Well the test is the same even after 3 years so here you go: Szymborska discussed death in terms of the civil war,where he saw much death of brothers, so it was very personal to him. This can be seen in the lines "My brother, you are now just a statistic. Dang." On the other hand, Milosz addressed it in the time he lived, which was during the space race--people did not need books and the Nazis burned all of the ones that stated U.S. landed on the moon. This is in the lines "Oh, space, space, your flames take up space, but are no more." This is how they both addressed death in their poems.-Hope it helps

    I don't think OCA 2016! is right bc someone on brainly put this exact same answer and a teacher replied with "thank you for putting the most incorrect answer ever so I can easily catch my students cheating" first of all wow & second of all idk what the answer to this question is & if someone would give the right answer, or even a remotely correct answer, it would help me & a lot of other people. This isn't cheating imo, being like "is the answer a, b, c, d" that's cheating. Asking for help or a point in even the remotely right direction on an essay question you are having trouble with is not cheating & for people to take advantage of other people & trying to "easily catch them cheating" is trash. Maybe it would be better if the students asked their parents or teachers for help, but some of our parents have jobs & aren't around all day to help us with English, especially when some of us are second generation immigrants and one of our parents can't speak English very well & definitely didn't learn about this in Mexico. I don't think they'll be much help. And for teachers or live lessons, my teacher does not go over specific test questions in live lessons nor will she help or give the answer on the phone. So thanks for nothing, I wish people would put the right answer to this question.
