Isiri Hughes Alek Talevich AP Literature and Composition January 26, 2021 Question #1 I struggled with: 4. In a Petrarchan sonnet, the "turn" generally occurs between the octave and the sestet, but here it occurs between lines 7 and 8. Which of the following is the most plausible explanation for this departure from the conventional pattern? (A) By rejecting common poetic practices, the departure conveys the speaker's contempt for social conventions. (B) By changing the structure of a Petrarchan sonnet, the departure demonstrates the speaker's cosmopolitan worldview. (C) By dividing the poem into two equal halves, the departure reinforces the speaker's views about equality in love. (D) By suggesting a lack of familiarity with poetic form, the departure underscores the speaker's point that rules are unimportant. (E) By signaling impatience with poetic traditions, the departure emphasizes the speaker's disdain for the customs governing romantic relationships.
