Weegy: C- Thomas Jefferson being the genius he was realized that war was a lost cause in that America would lose miserably. Also he thought to the long run.

Read the excerpt from Nathaniel Hawthorne's "The Minister's Black Veil," and then answer the question. "He entered with an almost noiseless step, bent his head mildly to the pews on each side, and bowed as he passed his oldest parishioner….It was strange to observe how slowly this venerable man became conscious of something singular in the appearance of his pastor." What is the BEST meaning of venerable as it is used in the excerpt? A. noble B. respected C. notorious D. ...
Weegy: Hawthorne's ?The Minister's Black Veil? is regarded as one of the earliest and greatest examples of American short fiction. [ [ Like many of Hawthorne's stories and his novel The Scarlet Letter, the story is developed around a single symbol: in this case, the black veil that the Reverend Mr. Hooper wears to hide his face from the world. The story's macabre tone and repressive early-colonial New England Puritan setting are familiar elements in Hawthorne's fiction, and they serve to underscore the unsettling behavior of the main character and the work's concern with the nature of secret sin and humans' fallen nature. Hawthorne's intended meaning with the tale has been the subject of considerable debate, with critics seeing it variously as a deprecation of Puritan fanaticism, a study of a misunderstood outsider ostracized by a community's intolerance, and an exploration of the clergyman's guilt after his crime against a young woman. Other readers argue that the tale is purposefully ambiguous because the psychological and religious complexity it seeks to express could not be captured in a straightforward moral tale. ] ] (More)
