Tony Lumpkin
son of Mrs Hardcastle by her first husband ( Mr Lumpkin ) and
stepson to Mr Hardcastle. He is a mischievous , uneducated
playboy and a very consumptive figure ; a fat, ale – drinking
young man who has little ambition except to play practical
jokes and to visit the local tavern whenever be has a mind ;
frightens the maids and worries the kittens. Proves to be
good – natured and kind despite his superficial disdain for
everyone. do Mrs Hardcastle has no authority over Tony, and
their relationship contrasts with that between Hardcastle and
Kate .
Tony takes an interest in horses , ” Bet Bouncer and especially
the alehouse , where he joyfully sings with members of the
lower – classes . When Tony comes of age , he will receive
1 ,500 pounds a year. His mother hopes to marry him to her
niece , constance Neville, who is in line to inherit a casket of
jewels from her uncle. Tony and Miss Neville despise each
other It is Tony’ s initial ception of Marlow , for a joke , which
sets up the plot Tony goes to great effort to help Neville and
Hastings in their plans to leave the country because he
despises her .
Tony’ s free – wheeling ways ofdrinking and tomfoolery is
probably because of the huge inheritance that awaits him
when he comes of age .

Question 10.

The poet's mood is mostly gloomy all through, embedded in his words, yet hopeful and pessimistic. Some stanzas show sorrow, and pain, so stanzas express the poet's hope still in the midst of all the chaos.
The poem Ambush portrays the socio-political problems
facing Nigeria. The poet describes how lofty dreams,
aspiration, visions, and hopes are shattered by the political
class that continually plunders the nation’s resources.
In the first stanza, he directly compares the ruling class with
a giant whale that swallows the nation’s resources leaving
nothing behind: The land is a giant whale/ that swallow the
sinker/ with hook, line and bait aborting dreams of a good
catch .
By way of allusion, he further relates the Nigerian situation to
the Biblical event where Apostle Peter toiled all night on sea
without catching any fish until he met Jesus who told him
what to do: blue Peter on empty ships/ all Peters with
petered out desires .
As a result of the many years of failed governance, the
country experiences all kinds of social problems like violence,
robbery, insurgence, kidnapping thus becoming a sabre-
toothed tiger/a giant hawk . The youths and elder statesmen
refrain from agitation for fear of being persecuted or
repressed by government: While infants shudder home/the
grizzled ones snatch their gut/from bayonets of tribulation/
halting venturous walk at dusk .
In the last stanza, while the poet looks forward to a
generation that will take the nation out of its hopeless state
toward the shore of possibilities, his hope is threatened by
the ravenous nature of the ruling class: The land lies patiently
ahead/ awaiting in ambush , ready to devour the future
change- agents.

The mood is gloomy and sober with a corresponding tone of
lamentation and pessimism. There appears to be a shift in
tone in the last stanza as he expresses hope but he ends the
stanza on a pessimistic note.

Question 12. Use of Diction

The content of this poem seems to be from the standpoint of
an innocent child. However the diction and style are quite
sophisticated. The speaker uses expressions one might expect
in eighteenth century poetry, for example, ‘The distant huntsman
winds his horn' and ‘learning's bower'. The poem also uses
rhetorical devices such as:
Extended rhetorical questions
Exclamation and apostrophe (‘O! father and mother')
Repeating a pattern three times.
The voice of the poem appears much more that of the
experienced adult speaker who sees and appreciates the child's
plight and is intent on persuading us of his/her view. He cannot
enter into the child's artless way of experiencing and of
expressing himself.

Santigi is the king of the village of Mando. He is a good and
just king who rules his people well. He is an impartial king. He
is the father of kindo. He is/was decided by maligu to support
the strangers coming to the village. He easily trust people and
that is why maligu capitalizes on that to deceive him. He is
highly respected. As a king of Mando, hr counts on
whitehead’s promises that he will establish school to teach his
people. He feels happy that his people will soon Know how to
read and write. As an impartial king, he banished kindo, his
son when he commits murder. This rare trait is hardly found
these days among kings. His interest as a king is for the
village to be peaceful and progressive. This is a mark of good
leadership. He is a quintessence of good leadership, impartial
and truth.

The poem titled “The Schoolboy” holds its popularity and high
level of likeness to how the poet decently challenged the
trending classroom education; surely William Blake is a genius.
“Early to bed is early to rise” but such idiomatic expression has
nothing to do with the schoolboy during the summer morn: “I
love to rise in a summer morn/ When the birds sing on every
tree” (line 1-2). Such period is most delightful to the boy since
the simple, sweet and spontaneous education he derives is far
higher than that of the classroom learning.
Looking at the six stanzas of the poem, it is obvious that the
poet paid attention to the rhythm and the rhymes without
allowing poetic license steal the simplicity of the poem. What
more can be said of the language? There is no obsolete word,
no Shakespearean English, no huge vocabulary that will
prompt opening the dictionary. Unhappiness of the schoolboy
coupled with rhetorical questions in the poem gave it a sad
tone;
“But to go to school in a summer morn,_
O it drives all joy away!
Under a cruel eye outworn,
The little ones spend the day
In sighing and dismay” (quoting stanza two of the poem)
Other poetic languages of not are rhetorical questions,
symbolism, repetition, alliteration, etc.

Use of Contest:
Both phematically and structurally the poem makes use of
contrast. The main idea in the poem is developed around two
contrasting musical instruments.
These are the jungle drums associated with Africa and the
piano which is identified with Europe. They are used
symbolically to represent the different countries of people
from the geographically entities. The one is simple and nature
while the other is sophisticated but complicated.
We all told one is “waiting” while the other speaks or associate
with “pulsing” .
