Hemingway expresses his thoughts on war and its impact from the point of view of “The Lost Generation”. He expresses the message that the war was destructive and many people (i.e. those who are a part of The Lost Generation) deeply felt the losses caused by the war. He expresses the impact of the physical losses as well as peoples loss of faith in humanity after World War I. He also discusses the fact that the war led to many people losing their “moral bearings” after witnessing so much loss and annihilation. In “In Another Country”, Hemingway uses the narrator’s matter-of-fact and bleak tone to convey his thoughts on the war. He also uses visceral imagery and adjectives like cold, dark, heavy, and stiff to help create the appropriate tone and establish a bleak setting to express his thoughts.

Study the characteristics of a folk ballad in the first column of the chart. Determine to what extent "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" conforms to, or varies from, typical folk-ballad style. Then record your findings in the chart.
Concepts of the RIME OF ANCIENT MARINER
In the Ancient Mariner's story, liminal spaces are dumbfounding and cause torment. The first liminal space the mariners experience is the equator, which is it could be said about as liminal an area as exists; all things considered, it is the limit between the Earth's sides of the equator. No sooner has the boat crossed the equator than a horrible tempest follows and drives it into the sonnet's definitive emblematic liminal space, the cold universe of the "rime." It is liminal by its exceptionally physical cosmetics; there, water exists not in one a solitary, authoritative state, yet in every one of the three structures: fluid (water), strong (ice), and gas (fog). They are still most unquestionably in the sea, yet encompassing them are rocky icy masses suggestive of the land. The "rime" fits the prime example of the Romantic liminal space in that it is at the same time frightening and delightful, and in that the mariners don't explore there deliberately, however are fairly moved there by some other power. Though the vast sea is a wild region speaking to the secrets of the brain and the grand, the "rime" exists just on its edge. As a liminal space it holds extraordinary force, and in fact an incredible soul occupies the "rime."
As discipline for his wrongdoing of slaughtering the Albatross, the Ancient Mariner is condemned to Life-in-Death, sentenced to be caught in a limbo-like state where his "sparkling eye" recounts both incredible virtuoso and torment. He can constrain others to tune in to his story from start to finish, however is compelled to do as such to assuage his torment. The Ancient Mariner is trapped in a liminal express that, as in a lot of Romantic verse, is equivalent to enslavement. He can calm his enduring incidentally by sharing his story, yet should do so consistently. The Ancient Mariner endures in light of his involvement with the "rime" and thereafter, however has additionally been amazingly near the celestial and great as a result of it. Accordingly his revile is fairly a gift; incredible and irregular information goes with his agony. The Wedding Guest, the Hermit, and all others to whom he relates his story go into a flashing liminal state themselves where they have a particular vibe of being paralyzed or entranced
It is inspiring to see humans pushing the barriers of space exploration and creating successful solutions for it." What does the word barriers suggest about space exploration?
Space exploration was the last thing the world could have thought of dabbing into because the idea of moving away from the earth and flying in the sky wasn't even an easy one for man, hence the difficulty attached with going into other planets was a big success.
Many trials were made before the eventual success experienced, this many difficulties man overcame is what is meant by barrier in this sense.
The word 'barriers' suggests the difficulty and the vast challenge and mystery that is space exploration.
Space is sort of like a limitless and expanding entity and the conditions in space is not particularly favourable to human existence and activities. On that note, this poses a huge challenge for astronauts and other space scientists trying to do their jobs. It therefore requires more efforts, research, funds and creativity to be able to explore space and profer solutions to current and future problems that might arise from space. Such solutions being meteorological predictions of weather conditions, satellite launching and the study of changes in space that might affect our planet.

In the short story, Maria is allowed to stay home from the family's vacation. Have you been given or wish you've been given more independence or responsibilities as you've grown up? If so, describe them.
Answer and explanation:
Yes, I would like to have more freedom to design my own schedule.
I understand parents and other adults trying to influence our decisions in life. They have more experience, they have learned from their own mistakes, so they see how they can prevent the following generation from making those mistakes or going through avoidable pain. On the one hand, I see the benefits of their instructions. On the other hand, I see giving teens and young adults responsibility over certain areas of their own lives as an experience from which we can all benefit. Later in life, we will be responsible not only for ourselves, our diet, our schedule, our health, but also for our families, our jobs and careers. How can we be expected to succeed when we have had others making decisions for us? I would very much like to be responsible for my own schedule. Deciding how much time I get to spend studying, playing, interacting socially etc. will help me realize what needs to be changed according to the results I get at school and in life. That will help me prepare for bigger challenges in the future as well as learn time-management skills that shall be crucial later on.

The author Virginia Woolf once said that the "chief delight" of Pepys's diary might be its revelation of "those very weaknesses and idiosyncrasies which in our own case we would die rather than reveal." What do you think Woolf meant? What effect do Pepys's "weaknesses" have on you as you read the diary?
Answer: To a great extent, the enticing part is the feeling that one is looking at something private.
A greater part of the allure of the diary is the feeling that you are gazing at something private, something that you that wasn't meant to be seen. Pepys would have not included details of his excessive meal alongside careless depiction of how the rest of London is burning if he had realized earlier how widely his diary would be read. Thus, reading it is as fun as hearing an interesting secret always is with the added advantage that the victim is dead a long time ago and cannot be accused in return or be inflicted with pain.

In the book, Farewell to Manzanar, when Mama moves the family to Terminal Island, why is Jeanne afraid? In your opinion, is she culturally more American or more Japanese? Why?
In the book, Farewell to Manzanar, when Mama moves the family to Terminal Island, why is Jeanne afraid?
Answer: Because she was never before surrounded by so many Japanese people on a daily basis.
Farewell to Manzanar is a 1973 memoir written by Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston and James Houston. The book is a description of Jeanne's experiences during Wolrd War II.
In the book, when Papa is arrested, Mama decides to move the family to the Japanese ghetto which is located on Terminal Island. Jeanne is afraid, as she never found herself around so many Japanese people. She is supposed to go to school with them and be surrounded by them all the time. Moreover, there is a joke told by her father when she was younger - that he would sell her to Japanese people if she did not listen to him.
In your opinion, is she culturally more American or more Japanese? Why?
Answer: As she was raised in American culture and speaks English quite proficiently, it could be argued that she is more American than Japanese. She is, however, a mixture of both.
Jeanne probably considers herself to be more American than Japanese. This kind of viewpoint explains her reaction to a family's sudden moving to a Japanese ghetto. She was raised in American culture and is quite proficient in English, while we might assume that she cannot take pride in her Japanese knowledge - we are not sure if she speaks it at all. This all leads to her not being accepted by other Japanese. However, her "fear" of Japanese people is quite ironic, as she is partially Japanese herself.

We saw that many people in this country had a one-sided idea of who was kept free by our flag, as blacks provided the highest percentage of casualties. what does this mean ?
It meant that even in America, racial discrimination or racism was being practiced and people were doing nothing about it. The black people were not considered part of the country because they were not given the equal freedom of the white people. Many of them were also killed and tortured. It's about time that the people have to tell the government about its wrongdoing and stand-up against it.
John Kerry was stating this in order to let the United States know that they should choose to have "peace" with the Southeast Asian countries like Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam rather than invading them.
The question above is related to John Kerry's testimony before the Senate Panel in 1971. He was proposing that the United States of America should end the war. He acted as a representative of the Vietnamese veterans who thought that America betrayed them by telling them to invade Vietnam for the country's sake.
However, they came back to the country, not proud because people hated them for what they did in Southeast Asia. They fully understood how Vietnamese felt when they resisted to the colonization of America.
