4. Explain any 5 of the historical events in the opening paragraphs

 

 

One of the historical events that is in these opening paragraphs is the French Revolution. This is expressed when the author is talking about the “Woodman” and the “Farmer.” This is supported by some of the diction used such as “tumbrels” which is a crude cart that was used to “carry condemned prisoners to their place of execution” as defined by dictionary.com.
