12th Grade English Literature-Poetry: Language, Style, and Tone Unit Test- 18 Multiple Choice Questions and 1 Essay

I’m studying for my English class and need an explanation.

Questions come from 3 poems:

“The Second Coming” by W.B. Yeats

“[I wandered lonely as a Cloud]” by William Wordsworth

“Sonnet 138” by William Shakespeare

18 multiple-choice questions (use the process of elimination to find the BEST answer using the text)

  • 1 free-response question (FRQ). The FRQ needs to be a complete, organized essay analyzing the poem. Print and annotate the poem to think through the meaning and analysis of the poem and to plan your writing. Examine the prompt and pay attention to the word “complex.” This is a typical word you will see in AP prompts. It is asking the student to consider the duality of an idea.
