Read the following paragraph from "The Black Cat" by Edgar Allen Poe. For the most wild, yet most homely narrative which I am about to pen, I neither expect nor solicit belief. Mad indeed would I be to expect it, in a case where
my very senses reject their own evidence. Yet, mad am I not-and very surely do I not dream. But to-morrow I die, and to-day I would unburden my soul. My
immediate purpose is to place before the world, plainly, succinctly, and without comment, a series of mere household events. In their consequences, these
events have terrified-have tortured-have destroyed me. Yet I will not attempt to expound them. To me, they have presented little but Horror-to many they
will seem less terrible than baroques. Hereafter, perhaps, some intellect may be found which will reduce my phantasm to the common-place-some intellect
more calm, more logical, and far less excitable than my own, which will perceive, in the circumstances I detail with awe, nothing more than an ordinary
succession of very natural causes and effects.
What best describes the purpose of this paragraph?

Each night she lay down in pain and rose to the celluloid butterflies of her beloved dead, lenin and marx and stalin arrayed at the footstead. and rose to her easel, the hundred dogs panting like children along the graveled walks of the garden, diego’s love a skull in the circular window of the thumbprint searing her immutable brow. how does the underlined figurative language contribute to the meaning of the poem? it describes the reason for frida’s pain and suffering. it indicates that the love frida once felt has died. it shows that frida continues to think of politics. it suggests that frida prefers to be around nature.

Read this excerpt from we’ve got a job: the 1963 children’s march. as king finished speaking, a young white man named roy james jumped onto the stage and attacked him with brass knuckles, slugging him in the back and jaw. rather than return the blows or even cover his face, king dropped his hands by his side and looked at his assailant. other ministers rushed to restrain james, but king stopped them. "don't touch him," he cried. "we have to pray for him." king put his arm around the man who had been attacking him. they talked quietly. the man, a member of the american nazi party, started crying and admitted that he had come there to prove that king was not nonviolent. the minister did not even press charges.
