Hi, dear teachers,
I'm confused. I'm reading a book of Somerset Maugham.
What does 'yet now' mean in the sentence:
Yet now few will be found to deny his greatness.
Now seems is at inappropriate times.
Yet has several meanins. Choose the one that fits.
- At this time; for the present: isn't ready yet.
- Up to a specified time; thus far: The end had not yet come.
- At a future time; eventually: may yet change his mind.
- Besides; in addition: returned for yet another helping.
- Still more; even: a yet sadder tale.
- Nevertheless: young yet wise.
