What is an Oxford Comma and when is it used.
An Oxford Comma, also called a serial comma, is the comma that follows "and" in a list. Example: Rebecca bought apples, oranges, and bananas. Its use has been widely debated by writers and grammaticians.
What is the meter of most of Shakespeare's work?
Shakespeare employed iambic pentameter -- a line of five metrical feet, each consisting of one short (or unstressed) syllable followed by one long (or stressed) syllable.
What were the main factors that differentiated modern from postmodern literature?
While the two styles did occur in different time periods, they're not defined by their chronology. Rather, modern literature focused on the intricacies of daily life -- such as James Joyce's Ulysses, narrating a single day in Dublin. Postmodern literature was less structured, often following multiple subplots with seemingly little connection to one another.
