CBSE English class-X sample paper ques-01- TEACHOO.png

Answer the following questions, based on the passage above.

Based on the reading of the passage, examine, in about 40 words, how studying poetry can be like exploring a new city. 

Answer:

Studying poetry can be like exploring a new city because one can encounter different types of poems that evoke various emotions and reactions, just like different places and people in a city.

Just as exploring a new city requires an open mind and a willingness to embrace the unexpected, studying poetry requires an openness to different styles and approaches, and a willingness to be challenged and surprised by what you find.

Step-by-step explanation by Teachoo:

To answer this question, we need to examine how studying poetry can be like exploring a new city. This can be done by finding similarities between the two activities.🔎

  • Studying poetry can be like exploring a new city because one can encounter different types of poems that evoke various emotions and reactions, just like different places and people in a city.🌆
  • For example, in the passage, the author describes how studying poetry can be a rollercoaster ride that is punctuated by moments of profound appreciation, frustration, confusion, bewilderment, warmth, happiness, connection, sadness, joy, accomplishment, and gratification. These are similar to the feelings and experiences one can have when exploring a new city.🎢
  • Additionally, the author mentions how studying poetry can expose one to themes that are universally understood, such as love, nature, or faith. These are similar to the common values and beliefs that one can find in different cultures and communities in a city.🌎

Therefore, studying poetry can be like exploring a new city because one can encounter different types of poems that evoke various emotions and reactions, just like different places and people in a city.👏
