Read the excerpt from Hamlet, Act I, Scene ii. Hamlet: O! that this too too solid flesh would melt, Thaw and resolve itself into a dew; Or that the Everlasting had not fix’d His canon ’gainst self-slaughter! O God! O God! How weary, stale, flat, and unprofitable Seem to me all the uses of this world. Fie on ’t! O fie! ’tis an unweeded garden, That grows to seed; things rank and gross in nature Possess it merely. That it should come to this! By evaluating the dramatic conventions in the excerpt, the reader can conclude that Hamlet will

Answer 1
Answer: Hamlet will become a tragic hero and the story will have an unhappy ending.
What he is saying in the excerpt above is basically that he wants to die; he doesn't really see a point in living in this horrible world, when we are all doomed to suffer and then die in the end. So he is contemplating suicide to speed up the process, which is obviously a tragic and negative feeling to express. Thus the story won't have a happy ending by any means. 
Answer 2
Answer:

It is an excerpt from Hamlet's first soliloquy in the play. The scene is Hamlet's first encounter with suicidal thoughts in which he condemns the world being weary, stale and unprofitable. But he cannot commit a suicide because religion forbids it. The remaining part of this soliloquy demonstrates Hamlet's agony because of the consequences related to his mother's fate and father's death. Therefore, the excerpt shows that the story will end tragically and it will not be a happy end.

50 Points!!! Fast please! Ok, so I had to write a narrative and continue the story, but i'm nervous about turning it in. Can you just read it and tell me what you think about it? Like a peer review, I guess, Thanks!! Dublin knew somebody was shooting at him directly. He knew the same way that he knew the flash of fire from his lighter had given him away. He yawned. Dublin was very tired and the last thing he wanted to do was have a shoot-off. It was pointless, a waste of time. He knew that he would be able to kill anyone without having to reload his gun, for he had never missed a single shot. He winced, as he heard the reload of his enemy’s gun, and held his breath as the bullet barely missed his arm. He knows where I am, he thought. He took a deep breath; he was preparing to fight.
He silently reached over to his left, and grabbed his rifle. And he slid it over to him. When he finally had it positioned, underneath his right arm because he was laying on his stomach, he looked through the thermal scope. Scanning the weathered building across from him, Dublin suddenly became aware of how exposed he was. He was on the bottom story of an abandoned building, in an abandoned city. Laying on the floor, looking outside, looking out where a wall should have been. The roof was caving in, and there were multiple holes in it. He could smell mildew and mold everywhere. But aside from him and his belongings, the room was bare empty. The other buildings were not in very good shape either. He spotted the enemy, the person lit up red in his scope. But Dublin was confused. The person was very small, and only had a small gun to defend himself. Through the scope, it looked the size of a pistol. That’s why they kept missing, he thought. But the person that was shooting at him was not a fighter, he guessed because of the way he had his knees drawn up to his chest. He was probably just scared, I just spooked him by lighting my cigarette. Then everything clicked into place, the shooter was a woman. Lost in his thoughts, he missed what was happening, the lady shot right at Dublin, and it took everything inside of him not to scream as the round bullet penetrated his leg. He groaned as he sniped out the lady trying to kill him, he felt the smallest bit of sympathy for her as he pulled the trigger. One second later, she fell down, silently.
It was quick, he told himself. She did not even feel it. Dublin clicked the safety back on and sat his rifle aside. He groaned as he sat up, and shifted his weight. He allowed himself one tear to express the pain he felt after he’d been shot. He took out his knife and constantly cussed as he dug the bullet out of his left leg. Afterwards, he cut off the left sleeve of his jacket, and tied it tightly around the wound. He used his last bit of water to wash the blood off his hands. Then he stood up and started limping across the open road to where he shot the lady. Completely exposed and wounded, he sent a silent prayer that he would not die here. When he made it across to the other building with the woman, he frowned at her limb body. After a few seconds, he looted her bag, gathering the supplies that she would no longer need. Ammo, two pistols, a pack of cigarettes, water bottles, bandages. “These will be helpful” he said as he stuffed everything in his backpack. And then he made his way back across the road to where he was originally laying. “Thank you!” he called back to her as he settled back down underneath his makeshift tent. Dublin lit another cigarette, as he silently waited and watched for the next person that would be sent to kill him. They’ll never catch me he thought as he took a deep breath and relaxed his wounded leg. Never.

PLEASE HELP, THIS IS DUE TODAY!! ok, so i am writing a paper on the differences between the Princess Bride book and movie. (I will paste my paper into this site) I am all done except for the conclusion. I have always been really bad at writing conclutions on papers and i don't have any idea of what to write on this one. Please read what i have written so far and give me some suggestions on what to write for my conclution.

Thank you so much!!!



Books and movies are never exactly the same. There ae always many differences between the two of them. Some differences have more significance that others and The Princess Bride is no exception. In the next few paragraphs I will explore a few of the differences between The Princess Bride book and movie.
The first difference we will discuss occurs close to the beginning. In the movie there is definitily some romance between Buttercup and Wesley. When they decide to get married Wesley needs to go to America to get work so that he can have to enough money to marry Buttercup. In the book Buttecup looks down on Wesley as just a servant and doesn't treat him very well. After the countess visits and shows attraction to Wesley Buttercup realizes that she likes Wesley also. Buttercup becomes jealous and that night she tells Wesley of her love. This scares Wesley and he leaves.
This difference does not have a large impact on the plot as both paths lead to the same result. When Buttercup gets the false new of Wesley's death she plans to marry Prince Humperkingk; then she gets kidnapped. Meanwhile Wesley is coming back for Buttercup when he hears of her marrage.
Another difference that does not change the the plot is the book's use of a flashback for both Inigo and Fezzik. The flashback shows the readers some of Inigo and Fezzik's past. Adding backstories can help the readers understand the characters better. In the movie the only information the viewer gets on Inigo an Fezzik's past is through conversations that happen through out the movie. This difference does not cause anything different to happen in the book because the flashback just gives some more information.
The last difference I will discuss is just a small diologue difference. In the book Miracle Max says the only thing better than true love is cough drops but in the movie he says the only thing better then true love is a muton sandwhich with a thick slice of cheese. When ever a book is made into a movie or a movie is written into a book most of the lines are not going to be exactly the same but most don't change anything the characters do. This is a good example of that. The difference in what Miracle Max says does not change anything the characters do following this interaction.
I have now disscused some of the ways books can differ from movies.

You can say something like

" well, there were many similarities within the book and the movie. there were also many notable differences as well. the story had many more details that the movie left out."

If a coworker offers you constructive criticism, you should A. ignore his or her comments.
B. criticize the person in return.
C. accuse the person of unprofessionalism.
D. accept the criticism graciously.

Answers

Answer:

D). Accept the criticism graciously.

Explanation:

As per the question, if a coworker proposes you with 'constructive criticism', you must 'accept it graciously' as such criticism affects your performance positively and transform the outcome by rectifying the mistakes. Constructive criticism may include both types of remarks(positive and negative). Such remarks propose logical and rational opinions about the job or work of others. Such criticism should be taken generously as it helps to know that how one's doing at his/her job and also know the areas you need to work upon which would aid to comprehend your performance positively. Thus, option D is the correct answer.

The most logical answer would be D. accept the criticism graciously

Answers

The success Lange found photographing people in San Francisco makes the most sense to me.

Answer :

The excerpt serves to foreshadow the manner in which Lange attempted to hide from all of her subjects.

Dorothea Lange's grandmother taught her to observe and inspect things carefully to appreciate their true beauty. She learnt the technique of hiding and making herself invisible to her subjects whom she saw on her long walks across New York. These walks also helped her get familiar with the city and she became aware of the sharp differences in the lives of the rich and the poor. This "cloak of invisibility" greatly helped the documentary photographer in capturing the human struggle in her photographs.
