Through Kabria and Sylv Po’s visit to Maa Tsuru, Fofo gets a chance to question her mother’s irresponsible nature. Maa Tsuru had no answers to Fofo’s questions just as she could not give any other option to Fofo apart from, “Go away from Accra” when Fofo inquired about why Poison attempted to rape her. Fofo from here knew she could not rely on her mother for protection; something that will come as a heavy blow to any fourteen year old. Kabria asked Fofo when inquiring about her rehabilitation process about staying with her mother again. Fofo’s answer was an emphatic ‘Never!’. This showed how sour the relationship between mother and daughter had turned.
Critically analyzing the relationship between Maa Tsuru and Fofo based on their decision making alone, the mother becomes the daughter while the daughter becomes the mother. Maa Tsuru’s poor decisions and infantile attitude suits more a teenager than a mother of six children. Fofo, the fourteen year old, seem to make the right choices guided by her instincts and naivety.
In the end, Maa Tsuru failed as Fofo’s mother and it took a once-in-a-life-time chance for Fofo to be saved off the jaws of the streets through the benevolence and motherly instincts of Kabria.
Fofo who is confused, wants to know why the death of Baby T should necessitate an attempted rape on her, why Poison should get angered about a mother being told of her daughter’s demise.
Hence Maa Tsuru explains how poison came to the house to turn her into leper. Apparently, Poison had come to the house to openly reveal how Maa Tsuru released Baby T into prostitution and made money out of her demise. As a wicked person, Poison had threatened to replace Baby T with Fofo if Maa Tsuru or others involvement in the deal make him unhappy.
Fofo is vexed, protests her mother’s persistence that she should go away, and ponders where her mother wants her to go, especially when she lacks the wherewithal. She demands something better from her mother who has none to offer but Maa Tsuru regrets what she thinks “should not have happened”. The above made Fofo inquire if her father is still her mother’s husband.
Frustrated and weeping, Maa Tsuru decided to warn her daughter not to speak to her anyhow. Fofo is not impressed. Maa Tsuru prays silently for an end to her experience, after her daughter had told her she never wanted to come to her and her mother had shown surprise.
Later, fofo calmly asked why Poison is angry about Maami Borni coming to tell Baby T’s death to her mother and if anyone has spoken of what really happened.
Lastly, Maa Tsuru’s laments do not impress Fofo and later shows lack of concern to her mother’s consoling words; if she liked the plastic bag in the room. She(Fofo) meets Ordaley outside and inform that all is not right, they left afterwards.
In conclusion, this episode shows how decayed and depraved Shana society is in the book “faceless”.
Although the play, there is a host of irresponsible men paraded. Muted leaves Maa Tsuru because he thinks she is cursed after having four children with her, he leaves her with no financial help. Nii Kpakpo preys on her and also leaves her after two children and also leaving her astray. He sexually molests his step daughter, Baby T. There is Dina, the founder of MUTE, whose husband left four years after their marriage because they had no child. Onko is the fetish relative who rapes Baby T and bribes his way out of trouble. He eventually murders her in bid to change his financial woes. Instead of working hard, he believes the herbalists ritual will perform an immediate miracles on his business. The only man who says with his family in the novel is Kabira’s husband and he isn’t exactly portrayed in a good light. He’s stingy and does not help out in the house. He nags his wife and his more interested in his image than the comfortability of Kabira who uses her old car, creamy to do all the house runs without help from her husband

Bigger berates himself for somehow failing to acquire more money during the murder and cover-up, feeling that he should have planned things more carefully. He visits Bessie and shows her the money. Bessie tells Bigger that his employers live in the same section of town as the Loeb family. They discuss a recent case in which Richard Loeb and his friend Nathan Leopold kidnapped a neighborhood boy, killed him, and tried to collect ransom money from the family. Bigger remembers the case and begins to concoct his own ransom plan.
Biggersees that Bessie is as blind as his family, as she uses liquor to blot out the pain of her life. He struggles over whether or not to trust her, but tells her that he has a big plan to obtain more money. Bigger tells Bessie that the Daltons’ daughter ran away with a “Red,” and that he took the money from Mary’s room after she disappeared.
He says he wants to write a ransom note and collect more. He assures Bessie that Mary has disappeared for good, but Bessie is suspicious of how he knows for certain. When Bessie asks Bigger if he is involved with Mary’s disappearance, he threatens to beat her.
He tells Bessie to retrieve the ransom money at a planned drop-off site, assuring her that he will be able to warn her if the money is marked or if the police are watching, as he works for the Daltons and will be privy to their plans. Bessie hesitantly agrees to help, so he gives her Mary’s money for safekeeping
Walpole’s The Castle of Otranto displays many of the features that would become stereotypically Gothic, being deployed around ghosts and spirits. For example, the story takes place in a foreign country, in a medieval castle with towers and secret passageways. The castle is eerie and ominous, plagued by creaking hinges, trap doors clanging shut, the wailing of the wind, and the life-like quality of people in paintings.
Supernatural elements like ghosts, visions, mysterious suits of armor, and prophecies run through the novel. Though Walpole is often credited as the first Gothic novelist, such fanciful elements were in fact drawn from medieval romance, heroic tales in which knights often encountered marvels or supernatural phenomena on their adventures.
Though the Gothic novel was always considered lowbrow literature even during the height of its popularity, before Walpole, “gothic” was looked down upon even more, and associated with barbarism. Walpole’s novel helped to change that, and his unfettered enthusiasm for the Middle Ages was extraordinary.
One of many accomplishments he is well known for is Strawberry Hill, a faux-medieval castle Walpole built for himself and on which he based The Castle of Otranto.
Though many of the literary devices found in Otranto are now recognized as archetypically “Gothic,” Walpole’s novel indulged in humor in a way that later Gothic works such as Dracula and Frankenstein did not. Part of this is achieved merely by his presentation of Gothic and supernatural elements.
For example, Conrad’s death by giant helmet, while tragic to the story’s characters, is completely absurd. The setting itself, often merely eerie in later Gothic works, is also occasionally humorous. The castle’s “deep and hollow groan” is “the effect of pent-up vapours” — in other words, the castle is farting.
How to pass WAEC Literature
Now that you have seen how Literature in English 2022 will look like, it is important you also get the necessary tips you need to observe in order to pass your exam very well.
1. Trust yourself
Self-confidence is another factor that affects the performance of a candidate. Promise to do everything by yourself and all will come out very easy.
It is well known that many students cancel the right answers only to copy the wrong ones because they do not have confidence in themselves. You’re a miracle for the day, study and pray hard.
2. Start Early Study
In your life as a student, studying is very important. WAEC is a very simple exam for the duration of the study. To study is one thing and to study on time is something completely different.
Do not wait so long before you begin studying for the WAEC 2022 Literature examination. You really won’t be helped by late preparation. There will be time to review before exams when you begin studying early.
It is extremely important to use the WAEC curriculum as it will help you to cover important topics. Without the Syllabus you will concentrate on unnecessary subjects not presented in examinations.
No need going to cover a whole textbook just to pass a particular subject. That would be stressful on your own side. The syllabus are important because all your questions will come from there.
Syllabus gives you area of concentration and also the list of textbooks which you will use to cover those topics.
Manage your time in the examination hall wisely
It is risky to remain in one question for more than the expected time. For objectives, you should be able to answer all your questions 15 minutes before the exam ends. Use the remaining time to dot your ‘I’s and cross your ‘T’s. In other words, use it to go through your work and make the necessary corrections.
For the essay part of the exam, ensure you do not exceed he proper time for each question. No matter how simple or hard a question would be, don’t dwell much on it.
To be able to manage your time properly, I recommend you go in with a wrist watch. Always allocate time to each question and try to finish it within that period.
Be timely to the examination venue
During the examinations, punctuality matters. Go early on to the examination site so the brain can do the job. When you rush into the examination hall you will be unstable and susceptible to so many mistakes.
Take the time before you begin to answer an examination question paper.
