What is wrong with this sentence? "To boldly go where no man has gone before"
The sentence should be written: "To go boldly where no man has gone before". Though this is an awesome slogan, it incorrectly puts the adverb before the verb in the sentence. Since "go" is the verb, "boldly" describes the verb and should follow.
Read lines 32-48 of Act 2 Scene 2 of "Romeo and Juliet". What does Juliet mean when she asks, "Wherefore art thou Romeo?" A) Where are you, Romeo? B) Why are you called Romeo? C) What do you want, Romeo?
B) Why are you called Romeo? While it is a common mistake for new Shakespeare readers to think that the word "wherefore" simply means "where", one can come to the right answer when reading the rest of the passage. Juliet is talking about names and wondering why words have such meaning. The famous phrase, "...a rose by any other word would smell as sweet" asks the question of why the name "rose" matters when without it the flower would still look and smell the same if it were called something else. She is struggling with the knowledge that Romeo is a Montague, her familial enemy, and her attraction to him. At the end of the passage she tells him to throw off his arbitrary name that keeps them apart and be with her instead. Therefore, in the context of the passage, it becomes clear that the answer is B.
In the book of Exodus, is Moses a dynamic leader or a follower? Explain your reasoning.
While Moses is often remembered as one of the great heroes of the Old Testament, he actually does very little to earn such a title. Throughout his story, Moses is a very passive character who makes very few independent decisions. Even the famous scene of Moses telling Pharaoh to "let my people go" is not necessarily true, as most of the speaking was done by Aaron, his brother. His motivation to go to Egypt in the first place only existed after God spoke to him; he would have been happy to remain with his adopted people, who he only found after running from Egypt after killing a man. While it is refreshing to have a protagonist who, rather than being a paragon of humanity, is a flawed, nervous, relatable person, he seems contented to be God's pawn rather than striving to be a great leader to his people.
