There are many losses of lives in the play. many people lose their lives as a result of the clashes between Kindo (the chief warrior) and the stranger( Mr.whitehead). Those tragic events that happen make the drama a tragedy. Soko was killed by Kindo. there was a slaughtering of other people. many tragic events happened in the village. there was bloodshed. lives were lost. The tragedy in the blood of stranger is not just man's tragedy; it is a tragedy of the entire village. The tragedy begins with Maligu deceiving the entire village by conspiring with Soko(the chief priest). we see tragedy in the rape of Wara. The tragedy is also seen in the killing of Parker and the whitehead by Kindo which leads to the barnishment of Kindo by the king.
The entire village starts to mourn the losses of the lives of their people. there was wailing every where. it is greed that pushes malign to think of deceiving his village. The illicit transaction between malign, Soko and the whitehead brought a lot of tragedies in the entire village


Theme of Deception:
Much of this play’s comedy comes from the trickery played by various characters. The most important deceits come from Tony, including his lie about Hardcastle’s home and his scheme of driving his mother and Constance around in circles. However, deceit also touches to the center of the play’s more major themes. In a sense, the only reason anyone learns anything about their deep assumptions about class and behavior is because they are duped into seeing characters in different ways. This 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



(i) Metaphor: the people's eyes are as cold as ice. This means that there is no warmth or real feeling in the words that they say, or how they behave. This metaphor literally allows you to visualise a block of ice, cold and unwelcoming.

(ii) Simile: stanza 4, line 20-21 emphasises the constant changes in the personae's face. If u think of how often a woman changes her dress, then that is how the personae adjusts his/her personality to suit an audience. The list of faces that follow this line emphasis this point. Stanza 6, lines 38-40 compares the personae's faces in a portrait. If u think of a snake words such as sneaky and deceitful come to mind. Therefore, the implication is that the personae is fake, just like the people he addresses

(iii) Repetition: This phrase is repeated at beginning and the end of the poem. This usually signals of a fairy tale. Therefore, it is implied that the personae is nostalgic about the past.
