With the introduction of Christianity, western culture advanced unabated. Westernization resulted in the destruction of Igbo culture and imposition of alien “ways of life”. Westernization equally furthered the incipient destruction of Igbo values. According to Ilogu, (1974) “western names such as Joseph, Mark, Henry, were given to people through baptism to transform them from “heathen” to “Christians”. In marriage, monogamy was introduce in place of the predominant polygamy. Ekechi, (1857) states that “with the introduction of modern Western cultural modes of dressing, traditional decorations, drawings and paintings as well as women beautifications with camwood (uri), and red dynes (uhie), were considered unfit for Christians”. This exposure to new forms of life and the possibilities it offered brought drastic changes to people’s world views.
Economics can be described as the study of how resources are used to satisfy the needs and desires of people. Humans do not live in a world of infinite resources since most goods and services, as well as inputs used in the production of goods, are available in limited supplies. Hence, by implication, the concept of scarcity manifests. There are limited inputs to produce goods and services to satisfy the nearly insatiable wants of the people.
compare and contrast Jacobean Revenge Tragedy and Restoration Comedy using The Rovers by Aphra Behn and The Duchess of Malfi by John Websters
CONCLUSION The similarities and differences between “The Duchess of Malfi” and “The Rovers” can never be overemphasize. Restoration comedy and Jacobean Revenge tragedy deeply applies Thomas Hobbes and Niccolo Machiavellian’s principle. Restoration comedy celebrates this principle while Jacobean revenge tragedy discourages the principle by pointing out its negative effect.
A revenge tragedy should have the desire to revenge, there should be murder in the plot, the character is also centered on royal birth or noble birth, the setting is Italian and the narrative is also conceal with ghost, skull and madness. The plot of a Jacobean revenge tragedy involves physical horror as in torture and poisoning, lust is a strong motivation, and order is restored at the end of the play.
