Print out or copy the poem and mark the rhyme scheme. What is the pattern of rhyme?
“They made her a grave, too cold and damp
For a soul so warm and true;
And she’s gone to the Lake of the Dismal Swamp,
Where, all night long, by a fire-fly lamp,
5 She paddles her white canoe.
“And her fire-fly lamp I soon shall see,
And her paddle I soon shall hear;
Long and loving our life shall be,
And I’ll hide the maid in a cypress tree,
10 When the footstep of death is near.”
Away to the Dismal Swamp he speeds—
His path was rugged and sore,
Through tangled juniper, beds of reeds,
Through many a fen where the serpent feeds,
15 And man never trod before.
And when on the earth he sunk to sleep,
If slumber his eyelids knew,
He lay where the deadly vine doth weep
Its venomous tear and nightly steep
20 The flesh with blistering dew!
And near him the she-wolf stirr’d the brake,
And the copper-snake breath’d in his ear,
Till he starting cried, from his dream awake,
“Oh! when shall I see the dusky Lake,
25 And the white canoe of my dear?”
He saw the Lake, and a meteor bright
Quick over its surface play’d—
“Welcome,” he said, “my dear one’s light!”
And the dim shore echoed for many a night
30 The name of the death-cold maid.
Till he hollow’d a boat of the birchen bark,
Which carried him off from shore;
Far, far he follow’d the meteor spark,
The wind was high and the clouds were dark,
35 And the boat return’d no more.
But oft, from the Indian hunter’s camp,
This lover and maid so true
Are seen at the hour of midnight damp
To cross the Lake by a fire-fly lamp,
40 And paddle their white canoe!
The rhyme pattern of Thomas Moore's ""The Lake of the Dismal Swamp" is ABAAB CDCCD EFEEF GHGGH IJIIJ KLLLK MNMMN OPOOP
A rhyme scheme is the pattern of rhymes that comes at the end of each verse or line in poetry.
All of Moore's stanzas follow a ABAAB rhyme pattern. This means that the first, third and fourth line create a rhyme while the second and fifth line create a different line.
For the first paragraph, the rhyme is damp, swamp, and lamp. Then true and canoe also rhyme. The second paragraph see, be, and tree. And also hear and near. The for the third paragraph the rhyme is speeds, reeds, and feeds. Also sore and before. Then for the fourth one sleep, weep, and steep. Then knew and dew. Then the fifth one is brake, awake, and lake. Also ear and dear. The for the sixth bright, light, and night. Then play'dand maid. Then for the seventh one bark, spark, and dark. Then shore and more. Then for the eight one camp, damp, and lamp. Then true and canoe. Hope it helps. Sorry it took so long.

Adjectives do what to nouns and pronouns
Adjectives modify nouns and pronouns. This means that they describe, limit, or in some way give a more definite meaning to a noun or pronoun.
Here are some notes about adjectives:
1. When the predicate describes the subject, the verb is one of the five sens es, or is a linking verb ( to be, seem , become, appear) use an adjective:
The weather turned nasty.
I feel sad.
He became furious.
2. A descriptive adjective tells us the quality or the condition of the noun or pronoun:
A short man
The excited dog
A hot meal
3. A limiting adjective points to the exact noun or pronoun and shows quantity:
You can see that the articles a, and, the, and demonstrative pronouns this, that, these, those can be an adjective!
Hoped I helped!
I believe adjectives describe nouns/pronouns.

What is dramatic irony? A)a situation in a novel, story, or play where the audience knows what is happening or what will happen while the characters do not
B)an instance in which a character in a work of fiction says something while meaning the complete opposite of what he or she stated
C)a situation in a work of fiction where the result of an action is contrary to what was expected
D)a situation in a work of fiction that brings out the conflict between human will and what is predestined
The answer is actually letter A) a situation in a novel, story, or play where the audience knows what is happening or what will happen while the characters do not.
As we know, irony refers to the action of saying something when we actually mean something else. However, the question is asking us about dramatic irony. In plays, movies, series, books etc., dramatic irony is related to a situation in which the audience knows and understands something that the characters themselves don't. Since the audience gets to see different characters and situations throughout the work, they get to receive information that the characters have no access to.
A famous example of dramatic irony is found in the tragic play "Romeo and Juliet" by Shakespeare. The audience knows Juliet is not truly dead. She has taken some medicine to fake her own death and be able to elope with Romeo. However, the person who was supposed to tell Romeo about Juliet's plan ends up detained. Romeo, having no access to the same information as the audience, believes Juliet has died indeed. Desperate, he kills himself by drinking poison.
Read the excerpt from “The Scarlet Ibis.” Doodle was frightened of being left. “Don’t go leave me, Brother,” he cried, and he leaned toward the coffin. His hand, trembling, reached out, and when he touched the casket he screamed. A screech owl flapped out of the box into our faces, scaring us and covering us with Paris green. Doodle was paralyzed, so I put him on my shoulder and carried him down the ladder, and even when we were outside in the bright sunshine, he clung to me, crying, “Don’t leave me. Don’t leave me.” What do Doodle’s repeated pleas of “Don’t leave me” foreshadow? Once the narrator returns to school, he leaves Doodle at home and forgets all of his plans to help him. After Doodle refuses to touch the casket, the narrator refuses to help Doodle and leaves him alone in the loft. Later in the story, the narrator races ahead and leaves Doodle to struggle behind during a terrible storm. When Doodle struggles to learn to walk, the narrator leaves and Doodle is left sitting alone in Old Woman Swamp.
Answer: c) Later in the story, the narrator races ahead and leaves Doodle to struggle behind during a terrible storm.
Explanation: foreshadowing means giving clues or predictions of an event that will happen in the future. In this excerpt from "The Scarlet Ibis" the fact that Doodle is so scared of being left and that he almost desperately asks his brother to not leave him, foreshadow that later in the story Doodle is left in a terrible situation, struggling with a storm all by himself.
Later in the story, the narrator races ahead and leaves Doodle to struggle behind during a terrible storm.

Second, it demonstrates to us how affectionate a network it truly is. Everybody in the town appears, and they chance real damage to save Miss Maudie's furnishings and effects. They battle together to get the fire engine there when it won't begin. Indeed, even Miss Maudie is daring, as her home burns to the ground. Boo Radley exhibits valor when he leaves the house and puts the cover on Scout's shoulders.

In Herman Melville’s MobyDick, what important idea is stressed by Ahab’s drowning as a result of becoming entangled in the harpoon line?
The idea that the obsession can destroy you.
One of the themes of Moby D.ick is the dangers of obsession be that obsession out of love or out of hate. Ahab's quest to hunt the whale was a clear case of obsession, and he abandoned everything for it. In the end it cost him his life. There is also a bit of irony in that that it was the weapon which was meant to kill the whale eventually led to Ahab's death.
Though work of Herman Melville's starts around whaling business but mainly implies that nature is powerful and mysterious force. In Moby Di.ck, the idea is stressed by Ahab's drowning as a result of becoming entangled in the harpoon line is self destruction can happen by obsession.

2. HYPERBOLE: Blatant exaggeration.
A hyperbole is a part of speech which expresses exaggerated claims that are not suppose to be taken literary.
