QUESTION 1

Solitude can be defined as a state of being alone and without being lonely. This state also leads to self-awareness. It can also be simply termed as a constructive and positive engagement with oneself. Finding solitude today is difficult because many people are ready to opt for any other way there is other than sitting alone with their own thoughts. Solitude is important because it facilitates reflection, growth and even enjoyment to some extent.

QUESTION 4

QUESTION 5

QUESTION 6

From the fifth paragraph, vegetables can communicate because they are bewitched and possessed by an entity is the only untrue statement.

QUESTION 7

According to Emerson, the poet can integrate all the parts of nature the best.

QUESTION 8

Human beings can and should enjoy an original relation to nature.

QUESTION 9

From Emerson’s view few adults can see Nature. He also goes ahead to state that “sun illuminates only the eye of the man”. His consideration when he gives this statement is that people take nature for granted. It simply means that adults can see nature but they cannot appreciate it as much as the children do. To appreciate and see nature as it is one need to see it as a child would.  It is this that brings the unending feeling of youth. With this he describes the relationship between people and nature as a bond with contemporary tranquility and an advanced understanding.

QUESTION 10

“In the woods we return to reason and faith”. When he mentions the stars and what impact they would have on humankind if they were to once in a thousand years. Stars appear every night and humans are not surprised they do, actually they don’t notice it. Emerson has a way of seeing things differently each day and coming up with  a positive influence from each.
