tomorrow's test questions today

Thanks for all your contributions today. 

Based on all your ideas, tomorrow you will receive three questions that will ask you for responses of 1-2 paragraphs each. 

Here they are:

  1. How does Emerson's diction, syntax, and tone reinforce his main idea?
  2. Emerson writes, "Every heart vibrates to that iron string."  How does his use of figurative language illustrate his theme?
  3. According to Emerson's logic, how might a "brute" or an infant qualify as a genius?
  4. (EXTRA CREDIT) Explain Emerson's purpose in beginning with, "Ne te quaesiveris extra."
