    (Drama & Poetry)
    3.30 pm – 5.10 pm
    A madman is outsider. We are told that he tattered and
    carrying heavy bundles of tightly wrapped pieces of junk
    dropping over his face.He shouts and abuses nobody in
    particular.He describes himself has "rich man" even
    though he has not stolen anybody's property.I no be
    thief because i dey satisfy for wetin i get."I be rich man
    as you as you see me".A lady passes by and calls him of
    disturbing the neighbourhood with your house.The
    madman unleashes a series of nonsense talk as such as
    describing the lady as his "darling wife" who agreed to
    marry him when he was poor,"but now i rich she no
    longer wan me again".He equally announces the
    improbable when he says, "i go go to Mr president and
    ask him to appoint me president of this country".He
    wants the ministers to work in the local goment and the
    councillors to be de ambassador" The madman and his
    load of bits and pieces of junk" on his head symbolize
    Jaccasa. What the nationals fails to reckon with namely
    moral rectitude is important to the supposedly mad
    person. What the madman utters,even if some of them
    appear nonsensical,makes some meaning to ACP
    The play is masterpiece of comedy,from the inception of
    the play.Tony,plays the practical joke on marlow and
    Hastings which create confusion that leads to hillarious
    situation.The best example is perhapsthe way Marlow
    and Hastings treat Hardcastle because they think him a
    landlord. Another piece of Comedy is derives from
    behaviour of Kate to Marlow.Kate exploits this too try to
    find out what kind of person Marlow actually is.Marlow's
    dynamic relationship with Kate is another form of
    comedy from higher class Kate to a poor barmaid to a
    woman from a good family but with no fortune. Another
    form of comedy in the play could be from Hastings and
    Marlow's reaction to Hardcastle,they find him impudent
    and absurd because they believe to be low class but this
    behaviour would be perfeclty reasonable and expected
    from a member of the upper class as he truly is.
    Throughout the play,Goldsmith makes us laugh at the
    way men and women as father,mother,lovers,young and
    old and poor behaviour but in doing he also raises
    important question about society.
    (i) The Theme of Culture/Conflict: Culture in Piano and
    Drums by Gabriel Okara In the poem “Piano and Drums”
    the poet Gabriel Okara depicts and contrasts two
    different cultures through symbolism of pianos and
    drums. The environment in this culture is physically
    dangerous, surrounded by wild animals. Drums here are
    a way of communication, and “jungle drums telegraphing
    the mystic rhythm, urgent, raw…” shows the way of life
    in this culture. This is life which is simple, near the
    beginnings of man. The connotations of the piano are
    complex and technical. The piano uses significantly
    different word sounds, showing that it is learnt,
    westernized and intricate compared to the drums which
    is instinctive and naturally acquired, and simple. The
    poem uses no set rhyme pattern which suits the poem
    as it has an undecided effect, emphasizing the confusion
    of the persona over his future. The Themes in Piano and
    (ii) The Theme of Innocence: The theme of innocence in
    the poem is explored in the poem is explored in the
    depiction of african culture, from the very first line of the
    poem where we are told that the events take place "at
    break of day", the idea of innocence is already implied.
    This is because the day is fresh and uncontaminated by
    other activities or sounds. The sound heard from the
    jungle drums are therefore pure and not corrupt, the
    poem also invokes the idea of innocence. The Themes in
    Piano and Drums
    (iii) The Theme of Dilemma: The theme of dile also
    features in the poem, while the poet speaks glowingly of
    African culture, he also finding European culture, despite
    its shortcomings, seductive. Thus he is unable to decide
    whether to let go of the inherited culture or embrace the
    new one this is the plight of many educated Africans
    today . many have however resolved this dilemma by
    taking from the two cultures in what has come to be
    know as cultural syncretism
    (iv) Childhood reminiscence and its effect: The poem
    speaker was reminded of his/her “primal youth and the
    beginning” through the quietness of the early morning
    river and the echoing forest. While at the riverside, the
    poem speaker could “hear jungle drums telegraphing/the
    mystic rhythm". The poem speaker revealed the effect
    such reminiscence brought to his/her memory of sitting
    “in my mother’s lap a suckling”, “walking simple paths
    with no innovations”, and groping in green leaves with
    wild flowers in naked hurrying feet.
    (i) The the of effect of formal education on a person's
    life:<br /> The thematic pre-occupation of this poem is what
    happens to children when they enter school. The poet
    raises vital questions on what children gain and lose as
    aresult of leaving their home to study in a formal setting.
    He contends that there are certain activities that are
    natural and healthy for school children which they must
    not be allowed to miss, otherwise they would not grow
    up into emotionally balanced adults. Similarly, there are
    burdens such as worriess and anxieties that schooling
    must not be allowed to cast on them.
    (ii) The need for overhauling of the educational system:<br /> To William Blake, the educational system then in
    operation was outdated and no longer useful. He states
    this clearly from the second stanza, in which he speaks
    of "the cruel eye". This refers to the teacher and by
    extension of the system represented by the teacher.
    (iii) The need for harmony between man and his natural
    environment: Theme is conveyed through the first stanza
    of the poem. There is harmony between the speaker and
    his natural environment, and it is such a tranquil
    atmosphere that vital lessons of life can be learnt. nature
    supplies the metaphors that run through the poem,
    portraying the disequilibrium between the pupil and his
    school environment.
