He trusted to have equalled the Most High, 4 0 If he opposed, and, with ambitious aim Against the throne and monarchy of God, Raised impious war in Heaven and battle proud, With vain attempt. Him the Almighty Power Hurled headlong flaming from the ethereal sky, 4 5 With hideous ruin and combustion, down To bottomless perdition, there to dwell In adamantine chains and penal fire, Who durst defy the Omnipotent to arms. The snake, whose cunning Mixed with hate and revenge, betrayed Eve, and his pride Got him kicked out of heaven, with all the Other angels who betrayed GOD, who supported Satan And his goal to put himself above everyone. He thought was equal to GOD If GOD disagreed, He would declare war against him, But he failed and GOD casted him to hell in unbreakable chains and fire for trying to go against him This poem has a lot to do with religion, which was an important theme in the writings during that time.

4. The crowd was famish'd by degrees; but two Of an enormous city did survive, And they were enemies: they met beside The dying embers of an altar-place Where had been heap'd a mass of holy things For an unholy usage; they rak'd up, And shivering scrap'd with their cold skeleton hands The feeble ashes, and their feeble breath Blew for a little life, and made a flame Which was a mockery; then they lifted up Their eyes as it grew lighter, and beheld Each other's aspects saw, and shriek'd, and died— Even of their mutual hideousness they died, Unknowing who he was upon whose brow Famine had written Fiend. 5. Here many Noble thoughts occur But I prolixity abhor, And will persue th'instructive Tale To shew the Wise in some things fail. The Reverend Lover with surprize Peeps in her Bubbys, and her Eyes, And kisses both, and tries--and tries. The Evening in this Hellish Play, Beside his Guineas thrown away, Provok'd the Priest to that degree he swore, the Fault is not in me. Your damn'd Close stool so near my Nose, Your Dirty Smock, and Stinking Toes Would make a Hercules as tame As any Beau that you can name. The nymph grown Furious roar'd by God The blame lies all in Sixty odd And scornful pointing to the door Cry'd, Fumbler see my Face no more. Section 2: IDs . Choose 5 out of 7, for 50 points total. In this section, you will define and analyze important concepts from our class. First, spend a sentence or two defining the concept, and then analyze its significance to the themes of the class in the space provided. Do not use more than 2 texts to support each answer. Basically, you are writing a hearty paragraph explaining the significance of the term to your reading from class. 1. “Dulce et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori”- It is sweet and fitting to die for one’s country. This is a poem about war. The significance of this poem, in my opinion, is the title. The title explains how wonderful it is to die in war; however, the poem describes the horrific way a man dies in war. “and watch the white eyes writhing in his face, His hanging face, like a devil’s sick of sin…” This line is one of the many that explains the horrors of war.

    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.
