Question Description

There is more then one answer for the multiple choice question:

  1. Read the poem which follows and select the emotions and imagery of a parent's perspective on a child's death that also appear in The Sweet Hereafter.
    "Luna Rayne" by Susan Michalski

    I hold this tiny thought
    in my fist
    if my moon girl
    could
    she'd dance
    through the storm puddles
    left behind
    in my next dream
    and sing like rain
    on canvas
    for one brilliant moment
    as I recall

    The lonely image of the moon
    The feeling of anger like a fist
    The feeling of being in a dream

    The feeling of living in memories

    The feeling of joy one has when dancing

QUESTION 2

  1. Read the poem which follows and select the emotions and imagery of an outsider's perspective of death that also appear in The Sweet Hereafter.
    "There's been a Death, in the Opposite House" by Emily Dickinson

    There's been a Death, in the Opposite House,
    As lately as Today —
    I know it, by the numb look
    Such Houses have — always —

    The Neighbors rustle in and out —
    The Doctor — drives away —
    A Window opens like a Pod —
    Abrupt — mechanically —

    Somebody flings a Mattress out —
    The Children hurry by —
    They wonder if it died — on that —
    I used to — when a Boy —

    The Minister — goes stiffly in —
    As if the House were His —
    And He owned all the Mourners — now —
    And little Boys — besides —

    And then the Milliner — and the Man
    Of the Appalling Trade —
    To take the measure of the House —
    There'll be that Dark Parade —

    Of Tassels — and of Coaches — soon —
    It's easy as a Sign —
    The Intuition of the News —
    In just a Country Town —

    The image of the undertaker

    The numbness of the bereaved

    The curiosity of the children
    The image of the casket and the procession

    Survivors looking to the church for comfort

QUESTION 3

  1. Read the poem which follows and select the emotions and imagery of an outsider's perspective of death that also appear in The Sweet Hereafter.
    "Every Death Is Magic from the Enemy to Be Avenged" by Brooks Haxton

    When fever burned the last light out of my daughter's eyes,
    I swore to find and kill the ones to blame. Men
    must mount the long boat in the dark with spears.
    At dawn, where the flowering spicebush hid my scent,
    I crouched. A young wife, newborn slung across her chest,
    came first for spring water. She stooped. My god,
    for vengeance, spoke her secret name inside my ear. Her god
    stepped back with no scream, his right hand at his mouth,
    the knuckles clenched between the pointed teeth.
    The idea of secrets being told


    The idea of assigning blame
    The image of the flowering bush

    The image of the pointy teeth

    The image of the newborn

QUESTION 4

  1. Read the poem which follows and select the symbols and imagery of death that also appear in The Sweet Hereafter.
    "Absence" by Amy Lowell

    My cup is empty to-night,
    Cold and dry are its sides,
    Chilled by the wind from the open window.
    Empty and void, it sparkles white in the moonlight.
    The room is filled with the strange scent
    Of wisteria blossoms.
    They sway in the moon's radiance
    And tap against the wall.
    But the cup of my heart is still,
    And cold, and empty.
    When you come, it brims
    Red and trembling with blood,
    Heart's blood for your drinking;
    To fill your mouth with love
    And the bitter-sweet taste of a soul.

    The cold
    The darkness

    The moonlight
    The sweetness

    The empty cup
