What reception did lyrical ballads receive from critics when it was first published

Answers

Lyric ballads have a negative reception when it was first published. Lyric ballads was published in 1798. Lyric ballads was started by William Wordsworth and Samuel Coleridge. The theme of lyric ballads are about the nature, and describing things thru imagination.

Answer:

The critisism of "lyrical ballads" (1798) by  Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth was weak at first.

Now it is considered the book that brought or initiated romanticism in the United Kingdom.

They sought to write using words that everyone could understand, exalting the original state of nature by  focusing on simple, uneducated country people as the subject of poetry considered to be a signal shift to modern literature.

I will Prom is this friday and i need my grade up in order to go to my promm :( please help ... ill mark the brainliest if the answer is right!! high rate & im giving more points out.. plz helpppp meeee Read the passage. excerpt from Macbeth by William Shakespeare

Duncan: Dismay'd not this
Our captains, Macbeth and Banquo?

Sergeant: Yes;
As sparrows eagles, or the hare the lion.
If I say sooth, I must report they were
As cannons overcharged with double cracks, so they
Doubly redoubled strokes upon the foe:
Except they meant to bathe in reeking wounds,
Or memorise another Golgotha,
I cannot tell.
But I am faint, my gashes cry for help.

Duncan: So well thy words become thee as thy wounds;
They smack of honour both. Go get him surgeons.

How does Shakespeare's use of figurative language in this excerpt affect the play?

A. Duncan's use of a metaphor when he refers to getting the Sergeant "surgeons" demonstrates that he is a king who does not want to be involved in the messy consequences of warfare.

B. Duncan's use of imagery when he describes how the Sergeant's injuries "smack of honour" conveys the idea that he values the Sergeant more than he appreciates Macbeth or Banquo.

C. The Sergeant's use of personification when he states that his "gashes cry for help" reinforces the idea that the battle he witnessed was brutally violent and dangerous.

D. The Sergeant's use of a simile when he compares Macbeth and Banquo to "cannons overcharged with double cracks" stresses the fact that they are flawed men

Answers

C. The Sergeant's use of personification when he states that his "gashes cry for help" reinforces the idea that the battle he witnessed was brutally violent and dangerous. 

Personifying his wounds as things that can actually 'cry' on their own shows how hurt he really is and how dangerous the battle around him must have been.

The passage: In July of 1799, over 200 years ago, French soldiers came upon a block of stone in the Egyptian town of el-Rashid, or Rosetta. The stone was inscribed with three translations of the same message from priests of Ptolemy V. The message itself, having to do with taxes on priests, is rather unimportant for us today. However, the Rosetta Stone, as it has come to be called, provided scholars with the key to translating Egyptian hieroglyphics. Two of the languages on the stone are Egyptian, one of them being hieroglyphics and the other being Demotic. The second language is Greek. Therefore, linguists familiar with Greek were able to roughly translate the meaning of the hieroglyphs. Hieroglyphs were a formal writing system in Egypt that used picture symbols. Such writing is found in many of Egypt’s most famous structures, including the Great Pyramids. These symbols were able to be translated after the discovery and translation of the Rosetta Stone. question: What is the best summary of this passage?

a. The Rosetta Stone, which made translating Egyptian hieroglyphs possible, was discovered over 200 years ago in el-Rashid, Egypt.

b.The message on the Rosetta Stone dates from the time of Ptolemy V and is a declaration of important tax information for priests near el-Rashid.

c. The discovery of the Rosetta Stone finally made possible the translation of many examples of hieroglyphs in places like the Great Pyramids of Egypt.

d. The Rosetta Stone was inscribed with a message in three languages, including Greek, making translation of Demotic and hieroglyphs possible.

In "Birmingham Sunday" Richard Farina uses verses 2-5 to identify the name of each of the four girls, giving them their own verse in the song. In "Ballad of Birmingham" the mother refuses to let her child go down to the protests happening in the streets for fear of the violence. She sends her child to church instead. The church, however, is bombed and the daughter dies.
