六、阅读理解（共 16 小题；共 32 分） A We considered a list of the best American books—here are five that helped define the national character. Most from a century or so ago, they still entertain, teach, and inspire: Moby Dick by Herman Melville First published in 1851, the adventure stories of Captain Ahab and his monomaniacal( 偏执的 ) pursuit of the white whale draws us into a universe full of fascinating characters and stories. The Education of Henry Adams by Henry Adams Awarded the Pulitzer Prize in autobiography(自传) in 1918. Adams provides insight into his family, including his experience as private secretary to his father, minister to England during the American Civil War. Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman When Whitman published Leaves of Grass in 1855, he wanted to define the American experience—sing of the new country in a new voice, reflecting the great changes in the American literary world that had taken place during his lifetime. Poems by Emily Dickinson An enthusiastic poet whose works have had considerable influence on modern poetry, Dickinson's frequent use of dashes, sporadic(零星的) capitalization of nouns, and unconventional metaphors have contributed to her reputation as one of the most innovative(创新的) poets of 19th-century American literature. The song of Hiawatha by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow First published in 1855, this is Longfellow's most popular and most recognized poem, the heroic life and death of a magic American Indian, sent by the Great Spirit to guide the nations in the ways of peace.
46. Walt Whitman wrote Leaves of Grass in order to A. show his talent and heroic life to us B. give the American encouragement in a new voice
C. reflect the great changes in America that had taken place during his lifetime D. praise America and show the great changes in the American literary world 47. If you want to read a story about a magic American Indian, you can read A. Moby Dick C. Poems . B. Leaves of Grass D. The song of Hiawatha
48. Which statement is TRUE according to the passage? A. Of the five books, Moby Dick was published last. B. The Education of Henry Adams is a non-fiction book. C. Because the five books were from a century or so ago, they couldn't teach and inspire us. D. Herman Melville was considered as one of the most innovative poets of the 19th-century. B Followed by an eagle, a rabbit took shelter in the nest of a beetle(甲虫), whom he begged to save him. The beetle felt pity for the rabbit and begged the eagle not to kill the poor creature. In the name of the great Jupiter, the beetle requested that the eagle respect his intercession( 说情 ) and the laws of kindness even though he was nothing but a tiny insect. However, the eagle became very angry and drove the beetle away with his wing. In cold blood he caught the rabbit and ate him up right on the spot. When the eagle flew away, the beetle followed him to find out where his nest was. Then he entered and rolled the eagle's eggs out, breaking them one by one. Very sad and angry to think that anyone would do such a terrible thing, the eagle built his next nest in a higher place. But there, too, the beetle managed to get to it and destroyed the eggs as he had done before. The eagle now didn't know what to do. So he flew up to Jupiter, his god and king, and placed the third nest of eggs in his lap, begging him to guard them for him. However, the beetle made a little ball of dirt and flew up with it to Jupiter and dropped it on his lap. When Jupiter saw the dirt, he stood up right
away to shake it off, forgetting the eggs, which were again broken as they rolled off his lap. The beetle now informed Jupiter that he had done this to take revenge on ( 报 复 ) the eagle, who had not only wronged him, but had acted with little respect for Jupiter himself. Therefore, when the eagle returned, Jupiter told him that the beetle broke his eggs and that his complaint was not without good reasons. However, Jupiter did not want the race of eagles to face extinction, so he advised the beetle to arrange a peaceful settlement with him. But the beetle would not agree to this, and Jupiter had to change the eagle's reproduction( 繁 殖 ) time to another season when there are no beetles to be seen. 49. We learn from the first paragraph that the beetle was A. sympathetic B. confident C. nervous . D. intelligent
50. Why did the eagle build his next nest in a higher place? A. To spot small animals easily. B. To stay away from the beetle. C. To protect his eggs from danger. D. To stay closer to his god Jupiter. 51. Jupiter thought that the beetle's revenge on the eagle was A. unnecessary C. too late B. understandable D. too light . D. the eggs .
52. The conflict in the story was mainly caused by A. the rabbit B. the beetle C C. the eagle
Traditional fairy tales are being abandoned by parents because they are too scary for their young children, a study has found. A research has discovered one in five parents has given up old classics such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarves and Rapunzel in favour of more modern books. One third of parents say their children have been left in tears after hearing the horrible details of Little Red Riding Hood. And nearly half of mothers and fathers refuse to read Rumplestiltskin to their kids as the themes of the story are kidnapping and killing. Similarly, Goldilocks and the Three Bears is also a tale likely to be left on the book shelf as parents feel it forgives stealing. The survey of 2,000 adults was completed to mark the launch of the hit US drama GRIMM, which starts tonight at 9 p.m. on Watch, and sees six drama series
based on traditional fairy tales. The survey has found a quarter of parents polled will not consider reading a fairy tale to their children until they have reached the age of five, as they have to face too many awkward questions from their children. Steve Hornsey, General Manager, Watch, said, “Bedtime stories are supposed to soothe children and send them off to sleep soundly. But as we see in GRIMM, some fairy tales can be dark and dramatic tales so it' s understandable that parents worry about reading them to young children. As adults, we can see the innocence in fairy tales, but a five-year-old child would take them too seriously. Despite the dark nature of some classic fairy tales, as we see in GRIMM, good will defeat evil and there is always a moral to the story.” The study also shows two thirds of mums and dads try to avoid stories which might give their children nightmares. However, half of parents think traditional tales are more likely to have a strong moral message than a lot of modern kids' books, such as The Gruffalo, The Hungary Caterpillar and the Mr. Men books. 53. We can learn from Para. 3 that GRIMM is A. a fairy tale book B. a movie for children C. a play loved by children D. a drama based on traditional fairy tales 54. “ A. put down The underlined ”. B. calm down C. take down D. come down word “soothe” in Para. 4 can be replaced by .
55. Which of the following may Steve Hornsey agree to? A. A moral always exists in a classic fairy tale. B. All fairy tales are dark. C. Adults take fairy tales too seriously. D. All fairy tales are good for children's sleep. 56. What's the author's attitude towards traditional fairy tales? A. Optimistic. C. Casual. B. Not mentioned. D. Disapproving.
D For most of his life, Daniel Defoe worked as a businessman. However, when he was 60, he wrote something that was a great success. It was Robinson Crusoe, the first novel in English literature. Why do we say that Robinson Crusoe was the first novel in English literature? Novels are full-length invented stories. But even if the events and people in the story are invented, they are described in a way that makes them seem real. Before Robinson Crusoe, nobody in English literature had written a story like that. In Robinson Crusoe, Defoe describes Robinson's adventures in great detail. It seems that the writer is talking to the reader. In the early 18th century, most writers wrote in a complex style that was very different from the way people talked. Critics at the time didn't like the style of Robinson Crusoe. They didn't understand that Defoe had created something new in literature.
Robinson Crusoe is not only an exciting story but also a great novel. It
makes the reader think about important questions about life. One interesting idea in the book is about the relationship between individuals and society. Robinson lives alone on an island. He is free to live any way he wants, but he chooses to live as a civilized man. Another interesting idea in the book is how people need one another in society. On the island, there is nobody to help Robinson. He has to do everything himself. He has to learn how to be a builder, a farmer and how to make clothes and shoes. This experience teaches Robinson how we all need the help of experts. The idea of value is also discussed in the book. When Robinson goes back to the sunken ship, looking for things that could be useful, he picks up some gold and says, "This is no use to me." He understands that something has value only if it is useful.
Robinson Crusoe was the first novel in English literature. It was also the
first best-seller. When he wrote the story, Defoe changed English literature for ever. 57. What was Daniel Defoe probably famous as in his life according to the passage? A. A businessman. C. A farmer. B. A builder. D. A novelist.
58. Which statement is NOT right about the novel Robinson Crusoe? A. It's the first full-length novel in English literature. B. The events and people in the story are all real. C. The story was about a person's adventures on an island.
D. Critics at that time didn't like the style of the story. 59. What's the main idea of the third paragraph in this passage? A. The three ideas written in the novel Robinson Crusoe. B. How Robinson lived on the lonely island. C. The readers' opinions about the character Robinson. D. How we can live on an island alone. 60. Why did the author say Robinson Crusoe was the first novel in English literature? A. Because it was a great success. B. Because nobody wrote a story like it before. C. Because it makes the readers think about what is useful to us. D. Because it was the first best-seller then. 61. The main purpose of the text is to tell us A. Daniel Defoe and his first novel in English literature B. Robinson was a brave man living on a lonely island C. something has value when it is useful to us D. Defoe changed the English literature by selling his novels 答案 一、适当形式填空(单句适当形式) 1. adaptation 2. hesitation 3. uncomfortable 4. properly 5. remarks 二、单词拼写(根据中文提示拼写单词) 6. troublesome 7. extraordinary 8. status 9. overlooked 10. fades 三、单词拼写(单句首字母填空) 11. mistaken .
