    Click on link and re-read Epilogue. Explain how this epilogue brought closure to the story? Insert quotes from the epilogue:  https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B78f1QDeNznOZjdiQ0ZGOXZsa0E An epilogue or epilog is a piece of writing at the end of a work of literature or drama, usually used to bring closure to the work. It is presented from the perspective of within the story; when the author steps in and speaks directly to the reader, that is more properly considered an afterword. The opposite is a Prologue - a piece of writing at thebeginning of a work of literature or drama, usually used to open the story and capture interest. An epilogue is a final chapter at the end of a story that often serves to reveal the fates of the characters. Some epilogues may feature scenes only tangentially related to the subject of the story. They can be used to hint at a sequel or wrap up all the loose ends. They can occur at a significant period of time after the main plot has ended. In some cases, the epilogue has been used to allow the main character a chance to "speak freely." An epilogue can continue in the same narrative style and perspective as the preceding story, although the form of an epilogue can occasionally be drastically different from the overall story. It can also be used as a sequel.   [edit] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epilogue

    Autobiography has the following attributes:

    • A.

      Self-written

    • B.

      Strict timeline

    • C.

      Random events

    Correct Answer(s)

Additionally, autobiographies usually follow a strict timeline, where events are presented in chronological order. This helps to provide a clear and organized account of the author's life. However, the attribute "random events" does not align with the concept of an autobiography, as it suggests a lack of structure or coherence in the narrative.

    Rate this question:

  • 35. 

    A memoir is less personal and less emotional than an autobiography?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given answer is False because a memoir is actually more personal and emotional than an autobiography. While an autobiography typically covers the entire life of the author, a memoir focuses on specific events, experiences, or themes. This allows the author to delve deeper into their emotions and personal reflections, making it a more intimate and emotional account. Autobiographies, on the other hand, tend to be more factual and objective in nature.

    A. True
    Explanation
    A memoir is a type of autobiography that focuses on specific events or experiences from a person's life. It is a subjective account of the author's own memories and reflections. Since anyone can write about their own experiences and memories, it is true that a memoir can be written by anyone.

    Rate this question:

  • 37.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that memoirs can indeed be about events that did not directly involve the author but still had a significant impact on them. In contrast, autobiographies are more focused on the author's personal experiences and perspectives. Therefore, it is true that memoirs need not be solely about the author's own experiences.

It adds detail and helps to paint a clearer picture of the noun or pronoun in question.

Pronouns include words like "he," "she," "it," "they," and "we." They are used to refer back to a noun that has already been mentioned or to refer to a general or unspecified noun.

Verbs can be used to express physical actions (e.g., run, jump) or mental actions (e.g., think, believe). They can also indicate a state of being (e.g., is, are). In this case, the question is asking for a word that describes an action or a state of being, which aligns with the definition of a verb. Therefore, the correct answer is "Verb."
