Karmen Stepp Virtual Honors English 11, Red Day 2/6/2017 Lesson 6.2.11 (Final) When people are intrigued by unfamiliar and interesting things, they sometimes approach these things that are attractive and fascinating without thinking about the outcome. Marianne Moore’s poem “A Jelly-Fish” is an example of this idea. She writes about a person who is charmed by a sea creature called a jelly fish, but ends up not touching it due to the fact that jelly fish can sting. The imagery and parallelism in “A Jelly-Fish” gives the readers a well-founded representation of how mesmerizing the jelly fish is and what its meaning is about even though it is simple. Imagery is appealing to the senses of readers so they can better understand a work of writing. Moore gives several illustrations about the jelly fish at the beginning of her writing. She writes about how the jelly fish is “a fluctuating charm / an amber-tinctured amethyst” (lines 2-3).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
