3) Kufi is a male dominated society in all ramification. That is why it is filled and influenced by the feministic thought and feelings. This is seen in their position which is believed to be law and customary. They are very domineering because of their African belief.

identity is developed mostly in the scenes where Bigger prepares to face his death in the electric chair. In these final moments, Bigger must struggle to "come to terms" with what he has done and what he has become. In this regard, Bigger's identity crisis is more of a struggle to separate his own impressions from the projections of the racist society around him. Even as Bigger must accept responsibility for his crimes, he faces the complex task of asserting his own worth even as he can't ignore his crime. When Bigger is involved in the process of asserting his own worth, he finds that he is in a trap because he has been unable to act upon all of the dreams that he has. Bigger wants to define himself as an aviator or even as the leader of his gang, but these are all ultimately false. One important thing to note is that Wright's treatment of the identity theme resembles the philosophies expounded in several existentialist works. In particular, the prison scenes toward the end of the novel are intended to hearken back to the works of Wright's favorite writer, Dostoevsky. Particularly after his rejection of established religion, Bigger has the existentialist burden of searching for meaning in life without the traditional support systems offered by the church or other social structures. By the end of Native Son, it seems that Bigger is one man who is doomed to fight against the machinery of a hostile world.

Mary Dalton, the only daughter of a wealthy capitalist in Chicago, rebels the only way she knows how: she starts dating a Communist.(We could have suggested throwing wet towels on the carpet and refusing to pick them up, but that's just us. Her attempts to break free from her family’s wealth lead her to do numerous crazy things. She wants to transcend her privileged status, but she doesn’t realize justhowprivileged she is. Like her boyfriend Jan, she’s clueless that her attempts to befriend Bigger make him feel ashamed and afraid. She's also unaware just quite how belittling she's being: When Mary gets drunk, she has no idea that she is putting Bigger into a situation where he simply can’t win. There can be no good outcome for him by taking her upstairs to her bedroom when she is drunk. Her inability to see beyond her own immediate desire to befriend Bigger suggests that, ultimately, she may be too self-focused to see outside of herself. She wants to save the world, but knows far too little about it.

i)Comedy of manners
The play can also be seen as a comedy of manners, in which, in a polite society setting, the comedy arises from the gap between the characters' attempts to preserve standards of polite behaviour, that contrasts to their true behaviour.
Romantic comedy
It is also seen by some critics as a romantic comedy, which depicts how seriously young people take love, and how foolishly it makes them behave, (similar to Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream); inShe Stoops to Conquer, Kate's stooping and Marlow's nervousness are good examples of romantic comedy.
Alternatively, it can be seen as a satire, where characters are presented as either ludicrous or eccentric. Such a comedy might leave the impression that the characters are either too foolish or corrupt to ever reform, hence Mrs. Hardcastle.

9) the diction or language of this poem "Anvil and the hammer" by kofi awoona is tense and poetic and to a large extent portrays reconciliation . The word are carefuly emloyed to potray the theme of culture clash and the need to have a reconciliation culture identity .

“vanity” portrays the folly of the living
who in spite of having been bequeathed with many legacies have arrogantly and ignorantly failed to honour their dead ancestors. He laments as follows: “They have left on the earth their cries. In the air, on the water,where they have traced their signs for us, blind, deaf and unworthy sons, who see nothing of what they have made in the air, in the water where they have traced their signs”. In the poet’s view, much of the problems bedeviling the African society stem from our disregard for African tradition and over- dependence on the Western culture. He laments further: “If we cry roughly of our torments ever increasing from the start of things”. Birago Diop argues that the solution to Africa’s many problems lie within us. He further expresses the African belief that dead ancestors have the ability to punish erring individuals and warns that if they are not respected or honoured, they would also not help the living in time of trouble- “And since we did not understand our dead, since we have never listened to their cries, if we weep gently, gently, if we cry roughly of our torments, what heart will listen to our clamourings, what ear to our sobbing hearts.

No 11
This is a fairy long poem.. There are six stanzas however the poem has.the first part tells the story of a child who wakes up in a happy mood but gets swollen wen asked to go school.The fear of school rules and convention hindering his personal desires and individual preferences takes away his interest in school activities.the snag is that he is neither having his heart desires nor doing what his parents or teachers or the society expects of him.
In the last part,the poem explains why a child barred by certain rules cannot perform we using identifiable natural objects like caged birds and stripped tender plants. Bondage,conventions and rules can indeed impair a child's growth.
