WASSCE Exam On The Proud King By William Morris

Based on 10 emails in my inbox, requesting some explanations regarding

the poem titled: THE PROUD KING by William Morris, I've decided to

share my opinion on the poem. The poem speaks of a certain king that

almost lost his status to pride. With the tool of narrative fiction,

the very high status and wealthy king became nobody and had to feel

what the wretchs and destitutes feel in their state of nothingness

before he finally became sober, learnt humility lesson and regained

his position.

I do not want to speak further of the poem because it's too long,

clumsy, and even with the use of old English which can the long

reading, a very draggy one.

Thank God that WAEC/WASSCE presents its literature-in-English

candidates with optional questions to choose from. There are other

WASSCE recommended poems to study than waste time on THE PROUD KING by

William Morris which is too lenghty a poem.

If a candidate has a sound understanding of other poem like; SHALL I


Robert Frost, THE SCHOOL BOY by William Blake, CROSSING THE BAR by

Alfred Tennyson, THE PULLEY by George Herbert, etc; then there should

be nothing to worry about.
