Hi, could you explain why answer choice (C) is wrong for Question #1? I see now that (A) is better, but lines like "offers no romanticized view of multicultural life" pointed me toward the rejection of tradition explained in (C).
This is a big-picture question. Whether or not (C) is true (i'd argue it is not), it would be wrong to say that this is a passage about Lum rejecting tradition. It's a passage about Lum creating a new identity in his poetry.
Questions like these really highlight the importance of creating an answer before going to answer choices!
Hey Dave, for some reason this video isn't loading. It says that the server or network failed or because the format is not supported...i tried it on both google chrome and Firefox and it still didn't load.
I chose C. for question #4 because I assumed that since Lum's work standing out from other AA works due to the fact that his work combined both heritage exploration without compromising a discovery of his local identity meant that at least some Asian American literature (poetry) that explored familiar themes did so at the expense of local sensibility.
I also understood generational conflict to include examples such as that a 2nd generation immigrant could be the same age as a 1st generation immigrant (not necessarily within the same family) and still have conflict over differing identities. So I removed question choice A as a contender.
Am I overthinking this?
Wait. (C) is the correct answer for question #4. Also, I'm having trouble seeing how your thought process relates to the answer choices here; you and I are not quite connecting here (but I'm not sure why).
Excuse the blunder,
I meant that I had selected choice A for #4 since I read that Lum's work stood out from typical Asian American poetry due to it exploring themes of family etc. without it harming his attempts to develop/retain a local sensibility; therefore, wouldn't the opposite be true of at least some Asian American literature form Hawaii being inimical to the process (development) of developing a local sensibility if Lum's work stands out due to this characteristic?
