I would love someone to write me a 5-6 sentences about to readings, for each one 5-6 sentences, and divide them, Also I would love it to be for undergraduate level.
here is the first one:
Between my finger and my thumb
The squat pen rests; snug as a gun.
Under my window, a clean rasping sound
When the spade sinks into gravelly ground:
My father, digging. I look down
Till his straining rump among the flowerbeds
Bends low, comes up twenty years away
Stooping in rhythm through potato drills
Where he was digging.
(Seamus Heaney, “Digging”)
Here is the scond one:
Lord Mark’s intelligence meanwhile, however, had met her own quite sufficiently to enable him to tell her how little he could clear up her situation. He explained, for that matter – or at least hinted – that there was no such thing to-day in London as saying where any one was. Every one was everywhere – nobody was anywhere. He should be put to it – yes, frankly – to give a name of any sort or kind to their hostess’s “set.” Was it a set at all, or wasn’t it, and were there not really no such things as sets in the place any more? – was there anything but the groping and pawing, that of the vague billows of some great greasy sea in mid-Channel, of masses of bewildered people trying to “get” they didn’t know what or where?
(Henry James, The Wings of the Dove)
