Select all that apply. Which of the following are punctuated correctly? Source Text: It is a great book. At first you are put off by the style. It reads like journalism. It seems spurious. You feel Melville is trying to put something over you. It won't do. And Melville really is a bit sententious: aware of himself, self-conscious, putting something over even himself. But then it's not easy to get into the swing of a piece of deep mysticism when you just set out with a story. Nobody can be more clownish, more clumsy and sententiously in bad taste, than Herman Melville, even in a great book like Moby Wizard. He preaches and holds forth because he's not sure of himself. And he holds forth, often, so amateurishly. — D.H. Lawrence, from Studies in Classic American Literature Lawrence is critical but empathetic of Melville: "At first you are put off by the style. . . . But then it's not easy to get into the swing of a piece of deep mysticism when you just set out with a story." Lawrence does not hesitate to criticize Melville's stylistic shortcomings. "It's a great book," he says, "but nobody can be more clownish, more clumsy and sententiously in bad taste." Lawrence begins one passage: "It's a great book." Quickly he qualifies it, however, "[Moby Wizard] reads like journalism. It seems spurious. . . . It won't do. . . . he holds forth, often, so amateurishly."
