Read the following stanzas from "Lady Lazarus" by Sylvia Plath: I am your opus, I am your valuable, The pure gold baby That melts to a shriek. I turn and burn. Do not think I underestimate your great concern. --- What is Plath attempting to convey by the lines "I am your opus, I am your valuable, The pure gold baby"?
It is possible that through these lines, Sylvia Plath is explaining that she is treated as an "opus" (an artistic creation/piece of work) - just an object. She is treated as something of value because she produces "pure gold", but beyond that, she is something to be molded and manipulated like a baby. When "melted" or placed under extreme stress, she becomes nothing but a shriek, but will rise again and again.

Prove that n! [n factorial] = n * (n-1)! [(n-1) factorial]. What are some important implications of this property?
Let us take the example of 3!: 3! = 3 * 2 * 1 We know that 2! = 2 * 1 Therefore, 3! = 3 * 2! An important application of this is that we can simplify a calculation such as ( 100! * 5! ) / (99!) as: ( 100 * 5! ) = ( 100*5*4*3*2*1 ) = 12000
In the "Out, damned spot" speech by Lady Macbeth in the play Macbeth, what themes, ideas or concepts do you believe that Shakespeare is attempting to convey to you, the audience?
The "Out, damned spot" speech is a representation of the deep internal guilt that Lady Macbeth feels after participating in the story's murders and crimes. The blood that she sees on her hands is a physical manifestation of the chaos that she has created not only in the world, but in her mind and life. As we read about her scrubbing repeatedly to try and clean her hands, we understand that her pain and guilt will never be assuaged.
