    this story is about within 100 words.
    It is a truth universally acknowledged,that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.However little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighborhood,this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding
    families,that he is considered the rightful property of someone or other of their daughters.
     
    42.Read the following lines from Robert Burns's"A Red,Red Rose".Briefly tell about what
    they generally mean within 100 words.

    That's newly sprung in June;
    O my luve's like the melodie
    That's sweetly play'd in tune!
    As fair art thou,my bonnie lass,
    So deep in luve am I;
    And I will luve thee still,my dear,
    Till a'the seas gang dry.

    Moths that flyby day are not properly to be called moths;they do not excite that pleasant sense of dark autumn nights and ivy-blossom which the commonest yellow-underwing asleep in the shadow of the curtain never fails to rouse in us.They are hybrid creatures,neither gay like butterflies nor sombre like their own species.Nevertheless the present specimen,with his  narrow hay-coloured wings,fringed with a tassel of the same colour,seemed to be content
    with life
     
    44.Analyze the following stanza from Walt Whitman's "Song of Myself”within 150 words
    in terms of its artistic features.

    Born here of parents born here from parents the same,and their parents the same,
    I,now thirty-seven years old in perfect health begin,
    Hoping to cease not till death.
