Transcript of Copy of The Maiden Wiser than the Tsar.

Characters Tsar The Tsar is what you would
call mischievous and demanding. You could say
this because of the way he requested
the maiden to solve his riddles. Some of the
riddles the Tsar gave the maiden were to take
eggs and hatch them, later we found out that they
were hardboiled. Or to take flax and turn them into
sails. Maiden The maiden is very
wise for her years. The
evidence that proves this
is by her answers to Tsar's
riddles. Plot Line palace and village Maiden Tsar When the father
goes to see the
King. 1. The Tsar and
maiden have a
battle of wites. 2. The maiden
was invited to the
Tsar's court. 3. The Tsar and
maiden get married. The Tsar banishes the
maiden. The Tsar and maiden make up their differences. Writer Craft Hyperbole An extreme exageration Some examples of hyperbole are:
turning flax into sails
emptying the sea with a glass
taking a peice of wood and turning
it into a spindle. Irony When an event happens
unexpectedly. In the story that supports
irony would be when the
maiden told her father to plant the boiled beans, this caused an unexpected twist to the Tsar.
Imagery Puts a picture in the reader's mind When the Tsar stated the riddles to the
maiden one was to empty the sea with just a
single glass. this puts a picture into the
reader's mind. Third - Person Omniscient Narrative This is the style the short story was written
in. Theme One does not need to be of noble birth to have intelligence, wit or courage. One of the most idolized and greatly revered country in the world that is greatly held dear is England. Here they built an empire and created a social states structure. This structure still somewhat exists to this very day in the statement of having the wealthy and powerful members of society at the top and the less regarded individuals at the bottom. However, the members of higher class usually tend to be intelligence, wit, and courage. People of lower class tend to feel as if they have to prove themselves to higher class based on intelligence, wit, or courage if they were born with or without these qualities.

In the short story The Maiden Wiser than the Tsar, retold by Idries Shah. This story is about how a poor mans only daughter out thinks and enables the Tsar to fall in love with her. The maiden is said to be wiser than her years and by teaching her father this terminology the Tsar was astonished with the words the man was using and then a battle of wits began between the Tsar and the maiden. With these battles of wits enabled the maiden to show that her intelligence can up stand to upper class. An example of one of these battle of wits would be when the Tsar asked the maiden to take some eggs and hatch them by the next morning when he had hardboiled them with out her knowing. This shows intelligence on the maiden’s part because she discovered that the eggs were hardboiled and that her plan to out wit the Tsar was to take boiled beans and state that these beans would grow the same way that a hardboiled egg would hatch. Another way that the maiden proves her qualities to the Tsar was when the maiden took the Tsar as her one thing she would take from the palace on her departure. When the maiden took the Tsar she knows that she was gambling her life for taking the Tsar. If the Tsar still felt anger towards the maiden she may as well be going to jail. This shows that her love was great enough that she was willing to take the Tsar to show that her love was great enough that he may fall in love with her all over again. When the maiden did this demonstration of her love she showed that her intelligence, wit or courage she proves her qualities to the upper class.
