NCERT English Class 10 Poem - A Tiger in the Zoo

Poem - A Tiger in the Zoo

Writer of the poem - Leslie Norris
Summary

    The poem is a sharp contrast in the mood of a tiger. The poem provides a contrast in the mood and environment of a tiger when he is in the zoo, where he is imprisoned and when he is in the jungle, where he is in his natural habitat.

    This poem contrasts a tiger in the zoo with a tiger in his natural habitat. The poem moves from the zoo to the jungle and again back to the zoo. In the zoo, he has no freedom. He is confined behind bars in a concrete cell. He feels angry, insulted, frustrated and helpless.

    His confinement reminds him of his natural habitat, his sliding and hiding in the long grass near the water hole and pouncing on the plump deer that pass. He, in his silent rage, recollects the way he terrorized villagers by displaying his fangs (teeth) and claws. At night in the zoo, he hears patrolling cars. The tiger in the zoo is merely a showpiece and a source of entertainment for the people.

    A tiger in the zoo pays no attention to the visitors who come to watch him.in the silence of the dark night, he stares at the brilliant stars with his bright eyes.

    The poet thus tries to convey the fact that it is cruel to deprive animals of their natural way of life by curtailing them to small enclosures of the zoo. They feel deprived, wronged, and agonized in the enclosures.
