The use symbolism is to derive its message, the sources
of the conflict explored in the poem are represented
symbolically by Piano and Drums in other words
Personification, Imagery, Alliteration, Simile, Diction, are
the symbol in the play,Okara’s metaphors are simple but
fitting: the drums represent traditional African life, while
the piano represents the Western world.

Section D

The theme of endurance,is a constant backdrop for many
of Frost’s poems. The speaker of “Birches” never sees a
boy or comes across one. He only imagines one, and the
boy that he does imagine is himself at a younger age. The
boy seems to be similar to William Wordsworth and Walt
Whitman’s portrayals of boys. These boys have their own
rules and wisdom that they can pass on to the older men
and women around them. They are ready for adventures
in nature and represent the wild, untamed state of “man”
that remains good and moral even though no one is there
to govern him. The speaker’s loneliness may be the result
of adult concerns. and considerations.
