The main themes in The Lion and the Jewel are vanity, gender roles, and tradition versus progress.
Vanity: Vanity is Sidi’s downfall, as her belief in her own beauty and superiority causes her to underestimate Baroka, which allows him to take advantage of her.
Gender roles: Ilujinle is a patriarchal community, with Baroka proving his masculinity and power through sexual and physical conquests. When Sidi challenges Baroka’s masculinity, he punishes her and reestablishes the traditional gender hierarchy.
Tradition versus progress: Whereas Lakunle embraces the forces of modernization, characters like Baroka and Sadiku view modernization as a threat to traditional ways of life.
Jimmy Porter feels alienated from both his wife and society in general. He is a struggling middle class working man who is bored and confined by his monotonous life. His wife Alison has come to accept life, silently bearing any and all burdens
Jimmy feels resentful of Alison’s aloofness and indifferent demeanor and strikes out at her to get a reaction.
Jimmy is an angry man who feels that his opportunities in life were shaped by his middle class upbringing. Alison’s brother Nigel has a university degree and is a member of Parliament. Jimmy hates him for his connection to the world. A connection that he knows that he will never have.
Jimmy is a character who contemplates the world beyond the dimensions of his own existence. He cannot find anyone to talk to about the injustices or curiosities he feels about life.
Part of Jimmy’s alienation is from a general feeling in Great Britain in the 1950s when the ordinary British citizen felt passed over by a government who had promised prosperity for everyone. Instead, following WWII, in which London was destroyed, the British people struggle with new threats and a country put back together with a socialist system in place that is designed to keep everyone equal, except the very rich who remain the upper class, high above the ordinary citizen. Jimmy resents all of this and knows that it will never change.
*LITERATURE ANSWERS (DRAMA & POETRY)*
“Rage” is personified throughout the poem. It is possible that the poet does this deliberately to underline this fact:
Rage is the “chief” architect of man’s troubles on this earth. And, by extension, negative emotions constitute a powerful force in our lives.
This is why they must be avoided at all cost before they destroy us.
Rage, anger or hatred only serve to deprive the individual of the things he most desires. Rage is like a raider. It will steal the laughter, the, peace and calmness, sweetness and, indeed, all light from you if you allow it a place in your heart and mind
In other words, rage is the thief or “raider” always lurking around the corner to rob us of our dreams for a life of contentment.
Like corrosive acid, rage is toxic. It eats away the treasures of happiness that all humans work so hard to achieve.
In effect, all human suffering can be attributed to man’s inability to rid himself of dark emotions like anger, jealousy and hatred and to replace them with love.
Rage brings nothing other than trouble.
One of the significant figurative devices used in this poem is alliteration. By alliteration, one refers to the repetition of consonant sounds at the beginning of different words on the same line. A golden example of this in the poem can be found in line 4, where the poetic persona says, ‘of a fresh, following and folded rank’. In these lines, there is the repetition of the sound /f/. another example can be found in line 8, where the poetic persona says, ‘wind-wandering weed-winding bank’.
Repetition appears in different dimensions in this poem. On the surface, there is the repetition of words. The repetition sometimes occurs from one line to the other or in one line alone. For instance, in lines 1-2, the poetic persona ends the first line with ‘quelled’ and begins the next line with ‘quelled’ again. This repetition of the same words in different lines could be aimed at showing the relationship between the two lines.
The repetition of similar or identical internal vowel sounds – especially in stressed syllables – in sequence of nearby words were used by the poetic persona.
