Comparison Class and money The rover, partly as a point of comparison with john websters work. The Duchess of malfi, we consider the common themes of class and money. In Aphra behn’s rover although not a particularly romantic topic, the issue of money runs throughout the rover. The cavaliers constantly bemoan the fact that they do not have sufficient funds while don pedro picks a husband for his sister based almost solely upon fortune. Angelica Bianca, too, is obsessed with money, and must crucially decide whether for free, or hold out for the highest bidder. In comparison with websters work, we see the same theme for instance, the duchess argues that high class is not an indicator of a good man. At the time, Italy was moving into capitalism and one no longer needed into capitalism and one no longer needed to be born into wealth to obtain it. Though the duchess and her brothers are aware of this, her brothers, concerned with wealth and honour nevertheless strive to dismantle her marriage to Antonio while disapproving of their sisters love life. Ferdinand is particularly obsessed with the idea of inheriting the fortune to which his sister is entitled because it would protect his social and financial status ultimately the duchess is put to death for remarry into the lower class.
INTRODUCTION The Restoration period (1660-1700) had a great influence on the life and literature of contemporary age. This period is called the Restoration period because in this period, with the restoration of monarchy, the English literary tradition was restored. In the Commonwealth period Charles-II, the son of Charles-I escaped from England to France. After the fall of Commonwealth, the people of England brought him back and made him king of England (on May 29, 1660). He remained in power till his demise in 1685 when James-II, another son of Charles-I, ascended the throne. He was a catholic and most of the people who were protestants wanted to dethrone him. In 1688 there was the Glorious Revolution (Bloodless Revolution) against him. He fled to France. William-III of France and his wife Mary, the son-in-law and daughter of James-II, came to the power

Studies on Esiaba Irobi's Nwokedi and Cemetery Road have largely focused on the portrayal of politicians in modern societies. The studies have however neglected how linguistic metaphors have been utilised in realising ideologies. This is the gap the present study is set to fill using extracts from Nwokedi and Cemetery Road, which were analysed using insights from George Lakoff and Mark Johnson’s Conceptual Metaphor Theory and Teun Van Dijk's Theory of Ideology. The texts were subjected to quantitative analysis through the use of tables, frequency counts, and histograms. Five conceptual mappings: POLITICS IS A CONFLICT, POLITICS IS A SMALL CHILD, CHANGE IS A DIFFICULT PATH, POLITICS IS A BUILDING, and POLITICS IS A BODY, were observed from the linguistic metaphors, and their linguistic patterns, (lexical, morphological, and syntactical patterns), which project three ideologies: liberalism, progressivism, and radicalism. POLITICS IS A CONFLICT, and POLITICS IS A SMALL CHILD conceptual mappings are associated with liberalism, CHANGE IS A DIFFICULT PATH is associated with progressivism, while POLITICS IS A BUILDING, and POLITICS IS A BODY relate to radicalism. Thus, cross-domain mappings in Nwokedi and Cemetery Road, deployed through linguistic metaphors are motivated by the playwright’s ideological representation of Nwokedi and Mazeli as liberal, progressive, and radical ideologists.
