Sample paper-02 class-XII  (1).png

What is the message or theme of the extract? How does it relate to the social and economic issues of rural and urban life? Explain with reference to the text.

 Answer written by the student is:

The message or theme of the extract is the conflict and contrast between rural and urban life. It relates to the social and economic issues of rural and urban life by showing the differences and inequalities between them. 🌆🌄

Step-by-step explanation of the answer is:

To answer this question, we need to identify the message or theme of the extract and explain how it relates to the social and economic issues of rural and urban life. 🚗🚜

  • The message or theme is the main idea or lesson that a writer wants to convey through their work. It can be expressed in one or a few words, such as love, war, friendship, etc. 📝
  • The social and economic issues are the problems or challenges that affect the people and their well-being in a society. They can include poverty, education, health, environment, etc. 🌎
  • In this extract, Robert Frost uses a sarcastic and critical tone to describe the roadside stand and the traffic. He uses words and phrases that imply mockery, contempt, and irony, such as “polished”, “mind ahead”, “out of sorts”, “marred”, “artless”, “turned wrong”, “silver warts”, and “beauty rest”. He also uses contrast and comparison to highlight the differences and conflicts between the two elements. 🙃
  • The poet shows that the traffic represents the modern and urban society that is fast-paced, superficial, and selfish. It passes by the roadside stand without paying attention or stopping to buy anything. It also ruins the natural beauty of the landscape with its noise and pollution. 😒
  • The poet also shows that the roadside stand represents the rural and poor people who are trying to make a living by selling their products. They are simple, honest, and hardworking, but they are also desperate and hopeless. They paint their signs with poor skills and offer their goods with low prices, but they still fail to attract any customers. They also dream of having a better life in a beautiful mountain scene, but they are stuck in their miserable reality. 😢
  • The message or theme of the extract is that rural and urban life are incompatible and indifferent to each other. The poet shows his sympathy for the rural people and his disdain for the urban people. He also shows his criticism for the social and economic issues that create this gap and conflict between them. 😔
