(i) The tigers' description as “chivalric' is a contrast to that of Aunt Jennifer. Explain. 

Solution- The tigers were free, fearless, confident and proud whereas Aunt Jennifer was meek, submissive and without any identity. She was a rather indecisive woman, unlike the confident tigers she had created. Answer: The 'tigers' are symbols of bravery and courage and also of Aunt Jennifer's desire for freedom. They are chivalric and confident and do not fear men, which is totally contrasting with her own nature.‘Denizens’ denotes occupants or citizens and ‘chivalric’ points to fearlessness, honour, bravery and majesty. Tigers are very possessive about their territory. They live on their own terms and fear none, as they regard themselves superior in their own domain, The poet finds similarities between the propensity-of tigers and men.

(ii) How is a thing of beauty a joy forever? Elaborate with reference to the poem. 

Solution- The phrase “a thing of beauty is a joy forever” means a beautiful object, natural or artificial, makes a person happy for a long time even if its beauty fades, or is put into different circumstances. It is always a source of enjoyment, happiness, and pleasure for a person or a group of people. John Keats used the phrase in his poem ‘Endymion,’ written in 1818 after the closing of the Age of Enlightenment. While British philosophers like Shaftesbury and Hume believed that beauty depends on one’s good moral standards and character. John Keat’s approach was different. He said that beauty is available to anyone who had eyes to see. It is a direct claim that a beautiful thing gives enjoyment to the people. It can be interpreted in different ways.

(iii) Jack comes across as a loving father and a good storyteller in the story 'Should Wizard Hit Mommy ?'. Comment.

Solution- Jack is a very smart father who has an inventive mind for creating stories. The basic line was the same but there was a little variation. He has been dictating stories to his daughter for 2 years and giving morals to her through his stories which makes him a loving father. Each story described a creature named Roger. He had to manage his family as two children, a daughter Jo and her brother Bobby. Jack is a mature and seasoned person. In his stories, Roger Skunk is the creation of Jack Skunk's imagination who is a poor little black animal that smelled very bad whenever he goes to play. He can narrate stories with a different pace and tone of the occasion.
