1. 이 지문의 요지로 가장 적절한 것은?
Although pianos are commonplace nowadays, the first piano was
probably a modified version of a harpsichord. Historians believe the
harpsichord existed as early as 1700 and was created in Italy by an inventor
named Bartolomeo Cristofori. Cristofori had been working in Florence to create
a stringed instrument that had an improved tonal value. Although a rarity at
first, within one hundred years, pianos surpassed the harpsichord as the
mainstream keyboard instrument used by such notable composers as Beethoven.
Today, it’s unusual to hear or see a harpsichord, but pianos are commonly used
in classical, jazz, blues, country, rock, and gospel music. Thanks to the
innovative work of Cristofori, the sound of music was changed forever.
① The piano and the harpsichord are similar in sound.
② Bartolomeo Cristofori was recognized in his lifetime.
③ An inventor of instruments altered the way music sounds.
④ Keyboard instruments are used in many genres of music.
작가가 “나는 내 운명의 주인이다”라고 말하는 이유는 무엇인가?
the stress in my life takes its toll on me. Some days, I feel like running away
from my work and friends to live in a cave, far away from society. The pressure
of life gets to be excruciating, but the thought that I will feel the same way
tomorrow and the day after is even more brutal. However, when I write, I can
shake off all my cares. I can forget that this world will keep on turning
without me and that I can’t do anything to change it. Rather,
writing lets me manage my life; I am the master of my destiny and the world is
what I make it to be. These brief escapes let me cope with the pressure.
