Christian wrote his version of a myth about daphne and apollo for his english assignment. read this excerpt from the draft of christian’s introduction and answer the question. in the warm mediterranean lands there grows a wild evergreen with aromatic leaves, known as the bay tree. in ancient greece the bay was sacred to apollo, god of music and poetry, the most famous of the sons of zeus. the bay was his first love, a love he never forgot, wearing a garland of bay leaves in its memory. but why should a god love a tree? it came about like this. one day apollo was feeling particularly . he was then still a young, untried god and had performed his first glorious deed. he had slain a horrifying monster called the python, a serpent whose poisonous body had covered an entire hillside. it had required a thousand arrows to kill it. later he became known as the god of archery—besides being a musician and poet, a god of healing, and one who foretold the future. which statement best explains what christian’s revision accomplishes as compared to the myth "daphne and apollo—getting what we ask for or what we deserve"? a) while many characters are later introduced, christian’s revision is written so that readers understand the story’s connection to the bay tree. b) christian’s revision gives readers the opportunity to know both apollo and eros equally well because the narration is third person omniscient in which readers to know the feelings of all characters equally. c) while both versions are told from an omniscient point of view, christian’s version focuses readers’ attention on apollo and the fore shadowing of the conclusion. d) christian’s revision of this ancient myth prevents readers from having to take sides between two male characters which lessens the conflict and thus weakens the plot’s development.
