Read the excerpt below and answer the question. she dwelt among the untrodden ways beside the springs of dove, a maid whom there were none to praise and very few to love: a violet by a mossy stone half hidden from the eye! --fair as a star, when only one is shining in the sky. she lived unknown, and few could know when lucy ceased to be; but she is in her grave, and, oh, the difference to me! (wordsworth, “she dwelt among the untrodden ways”) which option explains a meaning implied by the use of the adjective untrodden in the excerpt? the maid was lost in the woods. the maid lived in a rural setting. the maid was a nature spirit. the maid suffered a life without joy.
the answer is A - lost in the woods
The Maid lived in a rural setting.
Untrodden implies that there aren't many people around. We know that she is not lost in the woods because it says "She dwelt amount the untrodden ways". Dwelt is the verb form of a dwelling which is a place. It also says later that "She lived unknown" which also indicates that she live in a rural setting. We don't see any other evidence that the other options are correct.
Although she was beautiful, she was also modest and did not draw attention to herself best summarizes the meaning of the poem's second stanza.
A violet by a mossy stone
Half hidden from the eye!
She was beautiful like a violet, nevertheless a mossy stone does not allow one to focus on the violet. A violet is small and the attention would be on the mossy stone rather than on the violet. This a metaphor, she is a violet.
Fair as a star, when only one
Is shining in the sky.
She is beautiful like the star, this also means her beauty enlightens the place. This is a simile: fair as a star.
i just took this on odyssey ware and my guess was "THE MAID WALKED SOFTLY"
