What does Jack think of it? I feel both proud and ashamed. Students congratulate Jack when he allows the teacher to put his name on the poem. But when they find out that she is not paying him, their sympathy turns into contempt.
"It's not that I don't want to be paid," says Jack. "It's just that I don't need money."
"Why not?" asks one student.
"Because I can do what I love best with no pay at all: make people laugh."
Another student disagrees: "You must need money very much if you won't take anything for your work."
Jack doesn't want to debate the issue with him. He thinks that students only care about his opinion because they are afraid of him. As for Mary, she feels honored that her student wants to write about her. She decides to visit Jack in his cabin to talk things over with him.
When Mary arrives, she finds him sitting in front of a log fire, drinking tea.
He greets her politely, but he isn't interested in getting to know her better. Instead, he asks her how she knows so much about poetry.
So, thinking that he might be able to become a poet one day, Jack begs his instructor to show him how to write on the computer so that he can create his own poetry. Mr. Bishop agrees, and they spend the rest of the school year writing poems together.
Now, I know what you're probably wondering: why would someone who wants to be a poet beg their teacher to teach them how to use a computer? Well, it's because computers were new back then. The only people who used them were in schools, and since teachers were the only other people with access to these machines, they became very popular.
Also, remember that this is before smartphones and iPads, so most people had no way of reading or writing electronic texts. Computers were all anyone could talk about, and students wanted to learn how to use them like their teachers did.
Finally, Mr. Bishop agreed to teach Jack because it was the right thing to do and not just because he needed help teaching others how to use the computer. He knew that Jack had talent for poetry and felt sorry for him because there were no opportunities like today's Internet where you can share your work with others.
Since beginning the year with Miss Stretchberry, Jack, the main character in the novel Love That Dog, has learnt a lot about poetry. When he read poetry like "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" and "The Tiger," he learnt about rhyme and repetition. Also, when he heard poems read out loud, he learnt how important it is to listen carefully.
Finally, learning about love from Stretchberry (a dog), Jack has learnt that you can't write about love or speak about it without using some form of language. Even if you try to write about something you don't understand, you'll only make things up. So, instead of writing fiction that has nothing to do with reality, it's better to talk about something that you do understand.
I think what Jack has learnt from his time with Miss Stretchberry is that love is very powerful and at the same time impossible to describe. You can't write about it without using some form of language - even if you try to write about something you don't understand, you'll only make things up. Instead of writing fiction that has nothing to do with reality, it's better to talk about something that you do understand. Good luck with your homework!
Why did Jack admire Valerie Worth's dog poetry so much, based on what you read? Jack's yellow dog used to lie down and mimic the character in the poem. Her comments let Jack visualize the dog in his thoughts. This is why.
Jack had many interests. He liked to watch birds in the park because they moved quickly and lived in the present moment like he did. They didn't worry about the past or the future, which made him feel better about himself.
Also, like Jack, dogs have a good sense of humor and enjoy jokes and games. One day when Jack was around six years old, his owner brought out some rubber balls with strings attached. She told Jack that these were toys for use with her new puppy who was coming home later that day. "Dogs like to play," she said as she put the balls in her purse.
Later that night after his owner went to bed, Jack pulled back the covers and looked under the bed where she kept their shoes. Then he walked downstairs and opened the door just enough for his nose to stick through. He smelled the air for a minute and then ran up the stairs again! After doing this several times, he went back downstairs.
A few minutes later his owner woke up and saw what Jack had done.
What does the poet do with the apple poetry that Jack adores, based on what you've read? The poem is brief. The poetry is in the shape of an apple. The poem uses words to help Jack visualize an apple.
The poet takes the apple and writes about it. This is called "metaphor." The metaphor helps us understand things we would not otherwise think about. In this case, the poet is using his imagination to create a picture of something sweet that doesn't harm the tree! That's why it's such a good idea for writers to use metaphors sometimes. Our minds are very creative, so we can learn many new things by thinking about things in different ways.
Here are some other examples of how poets use metaphors:
Lines written around an apple suggest thoughts without words. - William Wordsworth
The apples of discord are set out to be used for cooking by their owners...until someone eats them! Now they are set out as decorations. It is sad that people eat food that has been prepared just to make them feel bad.
The crabapple grows everywhere in my neighborhood. It's one of the first trees to bloom after a rain, and the birds love to eat its fruit. I like how unique it is—no two trees are exactly alike.
What is the best conclusion that can be reached about Jack based on his statements and behavior in this excerpt? He has a bad habit of being impolite. He is prone to displaying his feelings. He makes assumptions about others' motives. He often says things he does not mean.
In addition, it is evident that he is not very responsible. He lets others take advantage of him by letting them believe they can get away with lying to him. He also seems to lack respect for other people's opinions. He attacks Maggie directly after she tells him she does not want to marry him. Finally, he appears to have little faith in himself or others. He believes everyone else is out to get him even though most of the time this is not true.
Based on these observations, one can conclude that Jack is not very honest or trustworthy. It looks like he will do anything to win an argument. He tends to be jealous and assume the worst about others. He has no sense of responsibility and would rather let others take care of him than work hard at any job.
It also appears that he has little faith in himself or others. He thinks everyone else is out to get him even though most of the time this is not true. In fact, most of the time he is the one who is wronged.
