Analyse on 'Aunt Jennifer's tigers'
Aunt Jennifer was not mastered by her husband. She was mastered by the old,
obstractive system of the society. And the tigers prancing beneath the
trees symbolize, she can hardly wait to express her briliantness. So keep
in mind that it is not Uncle's false for everything.

'Aunt Jennifer's Tigers' is a revolutionary poem.It revolts aginst the
oppression done by the male dominated society to the innocent women
class.The death of the aunt warns the women of the society to awake and
fight for their freedom and right,otherwise,they have to face the same
trouble and torture as the aunt faced.The poetess vividly portraits the
suffering of the aunt through poetic devices.

It's an expression to project the way women are suppressed in our so called
male dominated society. many a times the aspirations and talents lie latent
, aunt jenny moves ahead give a silent but bold reply to the dominance
silently and aptly.Weaves her dream on the panel and quietly give vent to
her needs ,though none have understood yet she has kept her hope desire

aunt jenny has been subjected to exploitation by her husband representing
patriarchal society.she is docile and has endured this pain without a word
of protest .she did not open her feelings to any one .her emotions ,her
feelings her frustration find expression in the form of tiger she has
created .these tigers represent her mute reply to her husband and the
society she lives in . she understands that she should have been free
should have faced her husband boldly but only god knows why she preferred
to tolerate the attrocities silently

I imagine that the tigers are actually masters by thier own right, while
the creator of them is infact enslaved. Here the irony exists.

as adrienne focuses on the tiger she includes colors, which I believe are
choosen colors to help focus on happiness and to hope that Aunt Jennifer's
marriage will become better. And if any body knows the answer to this
question: does Aunt Jennifer die?
