QUESTION 1

  1. Read the poem that follows and select the images of death that also appear in The Sweet Hereafter.
    “Absence” by Amy Lowell

    My cup is empty to-night,
    Cold and dry are its sides,
    Chilled by the wind from the open window.
    Empty and void, it sparkles white in the moonlight.
    The room is filled with the strange scent
    Of wisteria blossoms.
    They sway in the moon’s radiance
    And tap against the wall.
    But the cup of my heart is still,
    And cold, and empty.
    When you come, it brims
    Red and trembling with blood,
    Heart’s blood for your drinking;
    To fill your mouth with love
    And the bitter-sweet taste of a soul.

    The cold
    The darkness
    The sweetness
    The empty cup

    A. At the word, the saw,/As if to prove saws knew what supper meant,/Leaped out at the boy’s hand
    B. The buzz-saw snarled and rattled in the yard/And made dust and dropped stove-length sticks of wood; Sweet-scented stuff when the breeze drew across it.
    C. A Window opens like a Pod

QUESTION 3

  1. Read the poem below and answer the question that follows.”Ashes of Life” by Edna St. Vincent MillayLove has gone and left me and the days are all alike;
    Eat I must, and sleep I will, – and would that night were here!
    But ah! – to lie awake and hear the slow hours strike!
    Would that it were day again! – with twilight near!

    Love has gone and left me and I don’t know what to do;
    This or that or what you will is all the same to me;
    But all the things that I begin I leave before I’m through, –
    There’s little use in anything as far as I can see.

    Love has gone and left me, – and the neighbors knock and borrow,
    And life goes on forever like the gnawing of a mouse, –
    And to-morrow and to-morrow and to-morrow and to-morrow
    There’s the little street and this little house.
