CLASS 12 ENGLISH - AUNT JENNIFER’S TIGERS (Questions and Answers)

CLASS 12 ENGLISH - AUNT JENNIFER’S TIGERS (Questions and Answers)(#class12English)(#cbse2021)(#eduvictors)

POET: ADRIENNE RICH


Q1. How do ‘denizens’ and ‘chivalric’ add to our understanding of the tiger’s attitudes?

Answer: Like all beasts of prey, the tigers are the denizens of the forest. They live far away from human settlements. They are called ‘chivalric.’ This indicates the majestic and honourable position that they occupy in the world of animals. So, the use of the words ‘denizens’ and ‘chivalric’ adds to our understanding of the tiger’s attitudes.


Q2. Why do you think Aunt Jennifer’s hands are ‘fluttering through her wool’ in the second stanza? Why is she finding the needle so hard to pull?

Answer: Aunt Jennifer is weaving tigers on the panel. Her hands are moving about her wool. She is finding the needle quite hard to pull. The weight of years of her married life is lying heavy on her hand. This makes the pulling of the needle so hard.
