CBSE Class 9 - English (Beehive)- Chapter - 2 : The Sound of Music - Chapter Theme and Summary (#eduvictors)(#cbse2020)(#class9English)

Chapter  2: The Sound of Music - Chapter Theme and Summary

CBSE Class 9 - English (Beehive)- Chapter - 2 : The Sound of Music - Chapter Theme and Summary (#eduvictors)(#cbse2020)(#class9English)

Author: Deborah Cowley


Part 1: Evelyn Glennie

Theme
The first part of ‘The Sound of Music’ is based on the theme that earnest efforts and able guidance pave one’s way to success. The aspirations, endeavours and achievements of the eminent Scottish percussion musician Evelyn Glennie were made possible by her unfaltering determination, firm resolute and self-confidence. Those who learn to overcome their handicap certainly accomplish their goals. One should have faith in one’s abilities and then the sky is the limit.


Summary

Evelyn Glennie, a most desired musician internationally, is a multi-percussionist who can play thousands of instruments flawlessly. Amazingly, she accomplished this status regardless of her disability as she was significantly hard of hearing. But she figured out to listen with her body instead of the ears. She feels the music through her body.

Step 4: Try to map a story.

CBSE Class 9- 10 - English Writing Skills - Figures of Speech (#cbsenotes)(#eduvictors)

Figures of Speech

English Writing Skills
CBSE Class 9- 10 - English Writing Skills - Figures of Speech (#cbsenotes)(#eduvictors)

A figure of Speech, word or group of words used to give particular emphasis to an idea or sentiment. The special emphasis is typically accomplished by the user's conscious deviation from the strictly literal sense of a word, or from the more commonly used form of word order or sentence construction. From ancient times to the present, such figurative locutions have been extensively employed by orators and writers to strengthen and embellish their styles of speech and composition. A number of the more widely used figures of speech, some of which are also called tropes, follow. 

Anticlimax:
Anticlimax, a sequence of ideas that abruptly diminish in dignity or importance at the end of a sentence or passage, generally for satirical effect. The following sentence contains an illustration of anticlimax: 
Among the great achievements of Benito Mussolini's regime were the revival of a strong national consciousness, the expansion of the Italian Empire, and the running of the trains on time.” (Compare with the climax, below.) 

Antithesis:
Antithesis, a juxtaposition of two words, phrases, clauses, or sentences contrasted or opposed in meaning in such a way as to give emphasis to contrasting ideas. 
An example of antithesis is the following line by the English poet Alexander Pope: “To err is human, to forgive divine.”

Kinds of Verbs (Transitive and Intransitive)

English Grammar

CBSE Class 6 - 8 - English Grammar - Kinds of Verbs (Transitive and Intransitive)(#cbsenotes)(#eduvictors)

There are two kinds of a verb:
1. Transitive Verb
2. Intransitive Verb


1. Transitive Verb
A verb requires an object after it completes its sense is called a transitive verb. Transitive verb needs object otherwise the sentence does not make any sense.
