Questions

Subject: Writing

Question:

Is there an error in this sentence? "We have to write a paper due tomorrow, so please take Angela and I home."

Answer:

Yes, "Angela and I" should be "Angela and me." (It usually helps to view the sentence without the other person; if the name "Angela" is taken out, the sentence would only make sense with "me.")

Subject: Shakespeare

TutorMe
Question:

Read Shakespeare's sonnet 130. How does Shakespeare's idea of love in this sonnet tie in to his view on other poetry? (Sonnet 130: "My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;// Coral is far more red than her lips' red;//...")

Answer:

In sonnet 130, the speaker points out how his love looks much different than the stereotypical idea of beauty in his time. In the final two lines of the sonnet, however, the speaker states that this isn't a bad thing, "and yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare// As any she belied with false compare." The speaker has concluded that his true love is better than any cliches/exaggerations of love, because his love is real and unfiltered. This poem is almost a metaphor pointing out a negative view on traditional poetry that's so romanticized that the reality behind it is lost.

Subject: Literature

TutorMe
Question:

Discuss any literary device that appears in both Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven" and "The Black Cat." How is it used to the poems' advantage?

Answer:

Both works include repetition (in "The Raven," "some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door" and in "The Black Cat," "these events have terrified--have tortured--have destroyed me"). Both of these moments of repetition bring attention to the frightening parts of the story, elevating the eerie mood. This is especially important in establishing the mood for the reader right at the beginning of the story.
