LITERATURE [DRAMA & POETRY]
⇾ In the poem, "Crossing the Bar" literally means or refers to death. When a person dies, he or she has crossed the bar of life to another world, the great beyond. On this premise, we derived the theme of uncertainty in this poem. There is uncertainty of life. We do not know what faces us in the next minute. We live today and we are oblivious of what will happen tomorrow. The "sunset" and the "evening" referred to in the poem actually means that period of life when man's instinct tells him that the end of his existence on earth is imminent. Although this usually happens at old age, it can also happen before such a time, hence, showing the uncertainty of life. The poem relates that all things would soon fade and pass away. The poem underscores the fact that man is a mortal, hence, he would face death sooner or later.
The poet speaks with certainty in regards of his death and his transformation into another realm of existence.
Repetition: This is seen throughout the poem. Example: What eyes will watch our large mouth? is repeated in the second stanza.
Rhetorical Question: This runs throughout the poem. It expresses the poets worry and emphasizes his seriousness over the subject matter of the poem.

What ear to our sobbing hearts?.

The play was called "the mistakes of a night". This is because there several mistakes made in the night. The night was significant to the play, because it helped to expose and validate the title of the play known as "the mistakes of a night". The significance of the night was highly emphasized in the play, throught the characters and roles of Maslow, Kate, Hastings and Tony Lumpkin.
Firstly, Tony Lumpkin deceived the visitors(Maslow and Hastings) and made them believe that Mr. Hardcastle's house was an inn. Because they made that visit in the night, the visitors mistakenly took to Tony's descriptions of Mr. Hardcastle and the house, and this led them to being unruly and rude to their host, his daughter whom they saw as a maid serving in the supposed and assumed in.
Secondly, Kate Hardcastle dressed like a maid that night that Maslow and Hastings came. They saw and assumed her to be a maid. Maslow particularly felt free with her, believing that she has got low class. Maslow's wrong perception of the young lady(Kate) was as a result of the trick that the night plays.
Finally, Tony tricked his mother by driving and Constance Neville round the perimeter of their house and brought her back to their garden. It was in the night that all these happened. If it were not for the night, Mrs Hardcastle could not have been deceived by Tony. Therefore, nthe night played a significant role in the play, for in it, mistakes were made and through these mistakes, truths were uncovered and the plans of Mrs Hardcastle to covet the jewelry box belonging to Constance and to lure her into marrying her son.
Tony Lumpkin, were punctured and these mistakes of the night helped to develop the plots of the play.
