Unit 7 The Chaser
Key to the Exercises Text comprehension I. Decide which of the following is likely to happen after the story. C II. Judge, according to the text, whether the following statements are true or false. 1. 2. 3. 4. F (Refer to Paragraph 5. The old man says that his stock in trade is not very large, but F (Refer to Paragraphs 11 and 13. The price of a glove-cleaner, as he calls it, is very F (Refer to Paragraph 19. The old man claims that the effects of love potions are T (Refer to Paragraphs 24 and 28. Austen says that Diana is fond of parties and, it is varied and has extraordinary effects.) high, five thousand dollars for a teaspoonful, but the love potion is very cheap.) permanent.) although she is everything to him already, she does not care about his love at all. That is why he decides to go to the old man for the love potion and whenever the old man mentions the magic of his potion, he can't help "crying." From that, we can see the man loves the girl very much.) 5. F (The old man sells the love potions almost for nothing because by doing so his customers will come back for a much dearer commodity, the glove-cleaner, to help them out. It is the "death potion" that the old man makes most of his profits from, and intends to sell to his customers.) III. Answer the following questions. 1. What the old man means is that a young man who falls in love one-sidedly is seldom rich enough to win a girl's heart. His words imply that money is one of the crucial factors for love. If a man is not rich, he can rarely expect to be loved by a girl. 2. Refer to Paragraphs 19 to 37. The love potion has powerful, everlasting effects. To begin with, it may produce sexual desire in the person who takes it. And on the spiritual side, it can replace indifference with devotion and scorn with adoration. It will make a gay girl want nothing but solitude and her lover's company. She will feel jealous of him when her lover is with other girls; she will want to be everything to him. She will be only interested in her lover and take every concern of him. Even if he slips a bit, she will forgive him though terribly hurt. In a word, she will fall in love with him if she drinks the love potion. 3. Refer to Paragraphs 39 to 43. It is an irony, by which the author seems to imply that love is far from being precious or desirable. It is easy for a man to fall in love, yet it is hard

for him to stick to it. Should he regret some day, he would have to pay a much higher price to get himself out of it. Anyway, for the old man, and for his customers as he believes, the life-cleaner is more important than the love potion. 4. This means there is a wide difference between the young and the old. Young people tend to be over-passionate for love, sometimes senselessly and irrationally, while the old, just like the old man who sells the mixtures, would take a cool and sensible, sometimes even cynical attitude towards love. 5. "Au revoir," an urbane and polished reply to the young man's good-bye, meaning "until I see you again," indicates the old man's firm belief that the young man will eventually come back to him for the life-cleaner. This shows his cynical pessimism about love. IV. Explain in your own words the following sentences. 1. 2. "Just because I am able to do you a favor/sell you the love potion, I feel safe telling "They, the love potions," said the old man, "will help change the girl's attitude you so much about my other medicines." towards you. She will no longer hold you in contempt. Instead, She will begin to give you her deep-felt love and care." Structural analysis of the text The last line "goodbye, until we meet again" carries an ironic double meaning. It's a conventional way to say goodbye. And with all those clues given in the story, it also suggests that the old man expects the young man will return for the glove-cleaner. Rhetorical features of the text "It would be no good charging that sort of price for a love potion. Young people who need a love potion very seldom have five thousand dollars. Otherwise they would not need a love potion." (Paragraph 13) Vocabulary exercises I. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
