1. What effect do the stanzas have on the meaning of this poem?
The correct answer is D: Each stanza presents a different aspect of the creation of the tiger.
In overall, "The Tyger" poem, is about asking the tiger about its traits and the traits of its creator. Each stanza addresses several questions, open to interpretation, that depict the fearful yet marvelous essence of the tiger, and the traits and actions of a God (probably a Christian one).
In the first stanza, William Blake writes metaphorically about the tiger's fur, when referring to it as "Burning bright" and then he mentions where he roams: "In the forest of the night". The following two verses seem to question whether a divine being could create such a fearful and fascinating creature.
In the second one, the author remarks its fiery eyes and wonder whether they come from heaven or hell. And then again ask about what divine being could've ever made the tiger.
The 3rd stanza's main subject is a group of questions about God's physical characteristics. And in the following, the author keeps asking questions, but this time about the "elements" involved in the making of the creature. The 5th one, seems to be a reference of another story, and then Blake asks if this "divine being" looked proud upon this animal jungle he created, and add one more: "Did He who made the lamb make thee?".
And finally, the last stanza is similar to the first one, with the word "Dare" instead of "Could".
2. How does the meaning of the last stanza relate to the meaning of the whole poem?
The correct answer is C: It connects the spirit of the speaker with that of the daffodils.
In this last stanza, the speaker comes to reality by describing himself lying on his couch, thinking. However, even though he’s not seeing the daffodils anymore, and he recognizes it, he naturally remembers them. And the memory of the daffodils makes him feel again the way he did when he was with them. He relives the moment, connecting his spirit with the daffodil’s.
3. Which alliterative phrase from the poem creates a grateful mood?
The correct answer is B: “Golden in the mercy of his means,”
This phrase comes from the poem "Fern Hill" by Dylan Thomas, and is found in the second stanza, where the author is praising and detailing moments he spent at Fern Hill when he was young. He describes himself as "Golden", which can refer to the way he was feeling at that time: very valuable, radiant and alive, where he was present. To appreciate and recognize the moment he was living is to be, as well, grateful.
4. Select the phrase to correctly complete the sentence.
The correct answer is C: Waiting anxiously for news about college, Richie checked the mail every day.
This phrase: “Waiting anxiously for news about college” works as a dependent and introductory clause, and the grammar rule is that when the independent clause is before the independent clause (In this case: "Richi checked the mail every day") is necessary to put a comma, so the sentence can be well understood.
Errr.. Just check below!
I notice that both of these stories are setting a new goal in a new place.
For Pioneering in Florida, it shows that they had to move but just for one more year due to help his sister and get her homestead. They had to go through many obstacles so they can succeed in their goal.
Okay so, for Finding Gold, Finding Florida, it seems like they go something similar but, Ponce de León wanted to find the "Fountain of Youth" and gold in an island called Bimini. He had set a goal but died sadly due to the Calusa people attacked him and shot him at an arrow at his leg.
Basically, I see something going on for both of these stories. They are similar to what they got at the end. They didn't get what they wanted most but, get something great. For Finding Gold, Finding Florida, it showed they didn't find the "Fountain of Youth" but got his voyages spurred others to search for gold and other riches in the New World.
In Pioneering in Florida, they had the whole Doster family in Florida.
It was harsh for them living but, they were able to pass the obstacles in Florida. Dora's mother wanted to go back someday in the trains due to her homesickness. (I forgot what I was doing-)
