Chapter 19 Review

By Sophie Black

  • Edward is discovered by two children. When he tells them he is the king, they believe him, but their mother considers him mad and takes pity on him. Still, she tries to find ways to make him tell the truth. Finally convinced he must have helped in the palace kitchen, she orders him to cook for them. He agrees, since King Alfred once did the same. He gets a tongue-lashing when he lets the dish burn. Because of their mutual embarrassment at their behavior, both drop their expectations—his for royal treatment, hers to treat him like a beggar. He agrees to wash the dishes and numerous other chores, again citing Alfred the Great’s example, until he sees Hugo and Canty come to the door. Edward escapes.
question one
  • Why do the children believe Edward, though the adults do not?
  • In Genral, Children are more beliving and innocent than adults. Their minds have no yet been harmed by the coarse reality of life. They are willing to take Edwards word, for they truly believe he is not lying, and they can see it in his eyes.
question two
  • What is ironic in the way Edward and the farmwife treat each other?
  • In Theory, Edward should be demanding firstclass lodgings, and the farmwife should retaliate by kicking him out of her barnand asking for money for staying the night. Instead, a totally ironic situation happens as they both treat each other with respect and kindness and there is as if there is no difference in status between them.
question three
  • Why does Edward decide to perform the menial tasks?
  • Because the family is so nice to Edward, he repays them by helping with chores and housework, which Is a huge step as he has never done any housework his entire life as he has always had servants to do it for him.

for a liar.”
