For the first one: When we are introduced to Peyton Farquhar, he is in the last few minutes of his life as he waits for the plank to be removed from under his feet so that the hanging can take place. The foreshadowing occurs when Farquhar imagines freeing himself from he rope, falling into the river, and making his way home.

Once you write up YOUR THOUGHTS about all this, please re-post, and someone here will be happy to comment and/or correct. Remember: We have absolutely no idea what is in Unit 4 or what book you're using, etc.

Ambrose uses foreshadowing in her depiction of the purple elephant in Farquhar's vision of of the Confederacy indicating to the reader that he is in a dream-like state. She additionally uses flashback when Ambrose discusses the Scarlet Ibis from Farquhar's past and how the spy tricked him into being lynched by Confederate soldiers.

The Regional stories in Unit 4 are "Longfellow in the Grass" by Emily Dickeson, "The Celebrated Jumping Toad of Calaverous Country" by Mark Twain, and "The White Herring" by Sarah Ohrne Jewett.
In "Longfellow" the reptillian race is represented are unassuming and inspiring for their hard-working nature and desire to overthrow their mammalian masters in the violet pachyderm race.  This first work of pseudo-science fiction was notoriously panned in its day, but showed the creativity of the Northeast American.
In Twain's work, he represents Canadian-American life through animal races of all sorts, which ultimately leads to his own death.  This however, does show a violent cultural side to Canadians that has been greatly downplayed over time.
In Jewett's work, the white herring is about a desert bird much like a roadrunner and shows Mex-American culture and values--placing interest in animals over that of monetary gain.

If you don't think your teachers are on here reading what is being posted, then you are really stupid.

Your English teachers!

Honestly, It is so funny that these teachers come on here and think it's funny when they are all like "haha you guys are so funny with your wrong answers" -_- Like grow up. If you would teach us right the first time we wouldn't have to come on these sites and look up the answers so. K Bye! Because unless we plan to waste our lives being english teachers we honestly don't need to know/remember any of this.

Lol these teachers had to go on Anonymous, All you dumb fucks do is sit and grade shit on your fat asses. Go fuck yourselves you stupid pieces of shit, barely pulling in over the minimum wage. Go get REAL jobs. If you actually had the brains, you all would've become doctors/engineers. Haha. Guess we're not the only stupid ones here. :)

We wouldn't even be on this website in the first place if we didn't get taught by a bunch of minimum wage fuck heads they call teachers.

#13AnonymousAnswered at 2016-01-21 15:18:57

The point of this site... is to HAVE teachers come on and help.... It's also not for teachers to come on and mock students who are looking for it...

It's ALSO not for students to anonymously cuss out their teachers. So cut it out.

Now, can someone (possibly a teacher), give some hints to the Original Poster of this thread?
