Question description

1. Which of the following passages again shows Pope’s use of allusion?

O thoughtless mortals! ever blind to fate / Too soon dejected, and too soon elate.

Not fierce Othello in so loud a strain/Roar’d for the handkerchief that caused his pain.

At once they gratify their scent and taste / And frequent cups prolong the rich repast.

Thrice she look’d back, and thrice the foe drew near.


Which of the following passages again shows Pope’s use of imagery?

Let wreaths of triumph now my temples twine / (The victor cried) the glorious prize is mine!

The peer now spreads the glitt’ring forfex wide/T’inclose the lock; now joins it, to divide.

But see how oft ambitious aims are cross’d / And chiefs contend until all the prize is lost!

Suddenly, these honors shall be snatch’d away / And cursed for ever this victorious day.


Which passage best shows the author’s use of descriptive language?

Or when rich China vessels, fall’n from high/In glitt’ring dust and painted fragments lie.

Hither the heroes and the nymphs resort / To taste a while the pleasures of a court...

At once they gratify their scent and taste / And frequent cups prolong the rich repast.

What Time would spare, from steel receives its date / And monuments, like men, submit to fate!


Which of the following passages shows the author’s use of imagery?

Then flash’d the living lightning from her eyes/And screams of horror rend th’ affrighted skies.

“Now meet thy fate,” incensed Belinda cried / And drew a deadly bodkin from her side...

Suddenly he view’d, in spite of all her art, an earthly lover lurking at her heart.

Snuff, or the fan, supply each pause of chat / With singing, laughing, ogling, and all that.


Which of the following passages from The Rape of the Lock shows the author’s use of allusion?

Just then, Clarissa drew with tempting grace / A  two-edged weapon from her shining case...

Heroes’ and heroines’ shouts confusedly rise  / And bass and treble voices strike the skies.

Ah, cease rash youth! Desist ere ‘tis too late/ Fear the just gods, and think of Scylla’s fate!

“Restore the lock!” she cries; and all around / “Restore the lock!” the vaulted roofs abound.
