- Q1:-Justify the title of this play
- Now, we will argue about the title of the Bear is justify or not .There are many meaning of bear in English. Bear means tolerance ,idiomatic expression is bear up with ,bear means naked but here is very outspoken person ,bear means uneducated, nonsense ,out of head, bear means a man who has no manners talk to before a woman and at a wild animal. This title which name is The Bear is totally justified the meaning of the play here
According to this play a woman lives in mourning. Her husband has died since seven month ago. She never wants to talk anyone else. She all time lives in her room. She always wears black dress but Smirnov does not understand the whole situation at all .He teases her in very strange way .
Indeed , he is an army officer but he behaves as a sentimental boy. Her servant (Luka) is worries about her. He advises her that she has to go outside the room and enjoy herself . But she rejects his advice. She does not keep smile on her face. Popova all time remembers her late husband.
The meaning of bear tolerance and sadness is complete fit on Popova and justifies the title of The Bear she tolerates the absence of her husband. As for as tolerance is concerned ,it can be seen in the scene when Smirnov disturbs her and demands the money very first when Popova shows very much tolerance .She never goes to panic rather she behaves as brave woman
On the other hand, bear is very dangerous animal. He is the enemy of human beings. In this play Smirnov expositors of this animal. He reaches the house of Papova and he demands to give money quickly. Papova convinces him that when my manager will come back in town, I shall give you money. Smirnov rejects her advice. He uses the rude language with Papova and her servant. He fights with Papova. He destroys the peace of Papova.
The above lines show that Smirnov behaves like a bear. He kills the feeling of Popova. We are satisfied about the title of this play and we can say that title of the play is justified at all.
