1. Each of the following lines from " The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" contains allusion except a. "I am no prophet - and here's no great matter;" b. "To say: I am Lazarus, come from the dead," c. "No! I am not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be;" d. "I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach."

B.

thanks

It is not B. The allusion is to Lazarus. It would be D, since it doesn't reference anyone.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

It's not D b/c an allusion is something that isn't real and if she was to choose D it would be incorrect

OpenStudy (anonymous):

D seems pretty real to me. And it says to choose the one that isn't an allusion

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Lazarus refers to a Saint and I'm pretty sure he isn't one.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Ok then i didn't realize that

OpenStudy (anonymous):

K then :)
