Answer the following questions, based on the passage above.

  Complete the sentence appropriately.  We can say that the author's tone becomes more neutral and objective when discussing weird poems, compared to other types of poetry because __________. 

Answer:

 We can say that the author's tone becomes more neutral and objective when discussing weird poems, compared to other types of poetry because they do not express a strong opinion or emotion about them.

Step-by-step explanation by Teachoo:

To answer this question, we need to identify the author's tone or attitude towards weird poems and compare it to their tone towards other types of poetry. This can be done by looking at the words and phrases they use to describe them.🔎

  • We can say that the author's tone becomes more neutral and objective when discussing weird poems, compared to other types of poetry because they do not express a strong opinion or emotion about them.😐
  • For example, in paragraph 3, the author uses words such as "emotionally charged", "curl up in a ball and cry", "jump up and down with joy", and "awe" to describe their feelings towards emotional poems. These words indicate a strong and positive or negative reaction.😊😢
  • Similarly, in paragraph 1, the author uses words such as "profound appreciation", "frustration", "confusing", "vexing", and "demotivating" to describe their feelings towards complex poems. These words indicate a strong and positive or negative reaction.👍👎
  • However, in paragraph 3, the author uses words such as "downright weird", "defy categorization", "bewilderment", "intriguing", and "off-putting" to describe their feelings towards weird poems. These words indicate a mild and neutral or mixed reaction.🤔

Therefore, we can say that the author's tone becomes more neutral and objective when discussing weird poems, compared to other types of poetry because they do not express a strong opinion or emotion about them.👏
