The dramatic technique of Classical unities of action,time,place and deceit is employed by Goldsmith to some extent in She Stoops to Conquer.
The Unity of Action; This is the one Unity that Goldsmith does not rigorously follow; the inclusion of the subplot of Constance-Hastings eloping distracts from the main narrative of the play. However, it shares similar themes of relationships and what makes the best kind (mutual attraction or the arrangement of a parent or guardian). Furthermore, the subplot interweaves with the main plot, for example when Hastings and Marlow confront Tony regarding his mischief making.
The Unity of Time; The alternative title of Mistakes of the Night illustrates that the Unity of Time is carefully observed. With all of the events occurring in a single night, the plot becomes more stimulating as well as lending more plausibility to the series of unlucky coincidences that conspire against the visitors. (copied from naijafamily.com.ng)
The Unity of Place ; While some may question whether She Stoops to Conquer contains the Unity of Place after all, the scene at the “The Three Pigeons” is set apart from the house but the similarity between the alehouse and the “old rumbling mansion, that looks all the world like an inn” is one of close resemblance; enough that in past performances, the scenes have often doubled up the use of the same set backdrop. Also, there is some debate as to whether the excursion to “Crackskull common” counts as a separate setting, but since the truth is that the travellers do not leave the mansion gardens, the Unity of Place is not violated.
Secondly Another technique device used is deceit.
deceit; It is the mastering built up of the theme of deceit that enables Oliver Goldsmiyh to achieve Comic or humorous effect on the play and at the same time patronage the level of moral breakdown in some families. Tony humpkin takes the first position in the act. He deceives young Marlow and Hasting beyond reasonable doubt that Mrs Hardcastles house is an inn. Tony also deceives the mother a number of times in the play. Also added in the list of deceit on Mrs Hardcastle and Miss Neville. Mrs Hardcastle deceives Marlow(her lover) into believing that she is a maid. Miss constance Neville deceives Mrs Hardcastle by pretending to have fallen in love with the son Tony while she (Mis Neville) searches for her true lover. In other words it shows the truth is most clear with Marlow and his shifting perspective on Kate, but it also is true for the Hardcastles and Sir Charles, who are able to see the contradictions in others because of what trickery engenders.
The title of the poem suggests that there is a gathering of diners about to feast on a meal. However, this is a terrifying (deadly) meal, and not the usual meal we know about. The poet mocks brothers who have gathered at a dining table to feast on each other after a bloody battle. As suggested above in ‘Background’, it may have been a gathering of wounded countrymen on the Sierra Leonian plateau in the eastern part of the country during the decade-long Civil war. Even if the country is located in the tropical rain-forest zone of Africa, the poet refers to “desert/tongues” brought about years of gunfire exchange, aimed at exterminating one another. In other words, there has been the withering of the land leading to “vegetables (dying) on their tongues”. More reason we are assured that we are still in the rain-forest belt is the availability of “guerillas” which “walk the land while crocodiles surf”. War has made the land a deserted one in which “the playground is emptied of children’s toys,” while the available water has become polluted when “cholera breaks its spell on cracked lips”. Note that “cracked lips” signify thirst.
CROSSING THE BAR BY AFRED LORD TENNYSON
Metaphor refers to one thing by mentioning another. Metaphors is a direct comparison of two things. Here in, Afred Lord Tennyson poem, crossing the bar, he uses metaphor in the entire poem and it revolves round the stanzas and lines of his poem. Although, the metaphor offers a meditation on the inevitability of death. In a simple concept, the poem reads as a piece on a proposed sea voyage. It is used as a stylish device.
The expression “boundless deep” used in line 7 is metaphorical. It simply refers to eternity, the source and home of life. Other metaphorical expressions in the poem include:
“Sunset and evening star”, “twilight and evening bell”, “the flood may bear me fear”, “I hope to see my pilot face to face”, “and after that that the dark” in line 1.
The idea of sunset and evening refers to old age when it steadily becomes certain that existence in the earthly realm is coming to and end. Also, the word “Twilight” in line 9 also has the same metaphorical meaning. The idea of “evening bell” in the same line is also suggestive of the fact that the time is up. In the evening or at twilight people naturally stop work and returns home. Then, after the “evening bell” comes “the dark”. Here the dark means death.
Others like “Moaning of the bar” (L.3) “sadness of farewell(L.11) “bourne of time and place”(L.13) “Crossed the bar(L.6) “My pilot”(L.15). Also, the idea of “flood” carrying the poetic persona far away is also a metaphor for death. Even the journey to be embarked upon as used by the poetic persona is also a metaphor. This means death which is inevitable.
In conclusion, Tennyson stylishly used Metaphor to give meaning to the poem and makes it understanding from the beginning to the end.
