c. New England
d. Gold Coast

2. The following passage is from which literary genre?
"There ain't a foot o'ground she don't know her way over, and the wild creaturs counts her one o'themselves. Squer'ls she'll tame to come an' feed right out o' her hands, and all sorts o' birds. Last winter she got the jaybirds to banging here, and I believe she'd 'a' scanted herself of her own meals to have plenty to throw out amongest'em, if I had n't kep' watch"
a. literary realism
b. romanticism
c. modernism
d. colonial literature*

Thank you for the help :)

  1. Too bad there's not an 'all of the above' choice for #1.

    #2 is incorrect.

  3. I can make a case for realism. Dialect speech is realism in that is a representation of how people in a specific time and place actually talk. What do you think, Writeacher?

  5. Well, I don't know the source of the quotation, so I must advise that context does make a difference. If the story is a fanciful tale about idealistic views of nature, it could be romanticism, but taken on its own, I still vote for realism. :)

  7. Yes I agree with A for #2. The excerpt reminds me some of of Twain's writing! I loved it, but it was hard for my just-out-of-ESL juniors to understand, so I read many pages in class (with explanation when needed)!!
