Slide 5 - The Bishop’s candlesticks-1 Persome: Marie, isn' t the soup boiling yet ? Marie: Not yet, madam. Persome: Well, it ought to be. You haven't tended the fire properly, child. Marie: But, madam, you yourself made the fire up. Persome: Don't answer me back like that. It is rude. Marie: Yes, madam. Persome: Then don't let me have to rebuke you again. Marie: No, madam. Persome: I wonder where my brother can be. (Looking at the clock.) It is after eleven o'clock and no sign of him. Marie!
Slide 6 - Passage 2 Persome : Brother , I have no patience with you. There , sit down and take your soup, it has been waiting ever so long. And if it is spoilt, it serves you right. Bishop : it smells delicious. Persome: I’m sure Marie’s mother is not so ill that you7 need have stayed out on such a night as this. I believe those people pretend to be ill just to have the Bishop call on them. They have no thought of the Bishop.
Slide 7 - The Bishop is a very noble person, who is always ready to help anyone in distress. The doors of his house are always open.
Slide 8 - But his sister Persome is materialistic. She feels that the simplicity and nobility of the bishop is misused by the people.
Slide 9 - He is often cheated and taken undue advantage of. Mere Gringoire, the old women who lives on the top of the hill and does no work made such a fool of the bishop by making him sell his silver salt cellars to pay her rent
Slide 10 - One day, past midnight a convict enters the bishop’s house and asks for food at the point of a knife. The convict is rude, hard hearted, rough and suspicious and full of fear. The bishop treats him with kindness and provides him food and shelter.
Slide 11 - The convict is tempted to steal the bishops silver candlesticks. But he gets caught and is arrested and brought before the bishop. This candlestick was very dear to the bishop as it was the parting gift presented to him by his mother. But the bishop called the convict his friend. Later he gives the candlesticks to the convict, blesses him and tells him a secret way to Paris. The convict is deeply touched and filled with remorse.
Slide 12 - The bishop succeeds in reforming the hardened convict and tells him that the human heart is the abode of God.
Slide 13 - Long Type Questions Q-1. What did the convict want? Ans- The convict said that he had eaten nothing for three days. He was starving. He asked the Bishop to give him food to eat. Q-2.Why did the convict become a thief ? Ans- The convict was out of job. His wife was ill. She was dying. He had no food to give her. So he had to steal to buy food for his wife.
Slide 14 - Q-3. Write a short note on Bishop. Ans- The Bishop is a very kind-hearted person. He goes out in the cold night to attend on the sick mother of his maid. He sells his silver salt-cellars to pay the rent for a poor old woman. The Bishop is also very forgiving. The convict runs away with his candlesticks. Even then the Bishop saves him from the sergeant. Q-4. Who had given the candlesticks to the Bishop? Ans- The Bishop’s mother had given him the candlesticks as a gift.
Slide 15 - Q-5. Write a short note on Persome’s behavior. Ans- Persome is the Bishop’s sister. From her conversation with Marie she appears to be a short-tempered, selfish and abusive woman. She loves her brother very deeply. All her wrongs are born out of her love for the Bishop . Nowhere in the play does Persome show that she is selfish for her own sake. .
Slide 16 - Q-6 write a short note on the changing of the convict from a wild beast to a man. Ans- The convict threatens to kill the Bishop. But the Bishop gives him food to eat and a comfortable bed to sleep on. The convict slips away with Bishop’s candlesticks. A police sergeant catches him and brings him to the Bishop. But the Bishop says that he himself has given him the candlesticks. This kindness of the Bishop touches the convict’s heart. He is now changed completely
