An old-fashioned gentleman who owns an old house in the countryside, Hardcastle is stuck in his ways and despises modern trends. He fought in the War of Spanish Succession and likes to tell stories of his time during the war. He is protective of his daughter, Kate, indulgent to his wife, Mrs. Hardcastle, and disapproves of his unpolished and rowdy step-son, Tony. Even though he dislikes modern society and leads a relatively isolated life, he does not wish to be thought of as an irrelevant old fogey. Hardcastle expects to be treated with respect by everyone he meets, so he is appalled by the ill-treament he receives from his friend Sir Charles’s son, Marlow. Hardcastle may be eccentric, but he is fair-minded. Therefore, when he sees that his wife’s lies are preventing Tony, Constance, and Hastings from finding happiness, he reveals the truth they need to know to be freed to make their own ways in the world without her interference.

(i) Clash Of Culture: The poem also shows that two distinct cultures cannot stay together as any such attempt will result to conflict of norms, traditions and believes. For instance, as many analyst has proposed, the conflicts in Nigeria that appear in the forms of ethnicity(tribalism), favoritism, nepotism, nonchalant attitude to public work and so on, is as a result of the incompatibility of the three major tribes in Nigeria and the many others. However, irrespective of these abnormalities, Nigeria still calls for unity in diversity. In other words the voice of the poem described his past rural African background as simple as drums beats while his present and upcoming urbanized Western lifestyle as difficult as the wailing tones of a piano.

Thus he is unable to dwcide whether to let go of the inherited culture or embrace the new one this is the plight of many educated africans today. many have however resolved this delimma by taking from the two cultures in what has come to be known as cultual syncretism. In other words wandering in the mystic rhythm of jungle drums and the concerto because he didn't know which culture to totally embrace. He preferred the simple rural life but it was also impossible to let go of the civilisation he had got unto despite it was complex and confusing.
