Shakespeare's further...
« on: December 18, 2016, 03:11:06 pm »
(I)Shakespeare's further classical and Italianate comedies, containing tight double plots and precise comic sequences, give way in the mid-1590s to the romantic atmosphere of his greatest comedies. (II) Scholars have often noted four periods in Shakespeare's writing career. (III) Until the mid-1590s, he wrote mainly comedies influenced by Roman and Italian models and history plays in the popular chronicle tradition. (IV) His second period began in about 1595 with the tragedy Romeo and Juliet and ended with the tragedy of Julius Caesar in 1599. (V) During this time, he wrote what are considered his greatest comedies and histories. From about 1600 to about 1608, his "tragic period", Shakespeare wrote mostly tragedies, and from about 1608 to 1613, mainly tragicomedies called romances.

A) I B) II C) III D) IV E) V


Which sentence is out of the paragraph? I think B

I guess you mean which sentence is out of place.
I think B is certainly out of place and should begin the passage.  It takes a bit of sorting out but the sentences should probably read as B C A D E
