The Boy Comes Home' Reference to the Cotext

Post by Archer on Sun Jan 30, 2011 3:34 am

REFERENCE:
These lines have been taken from the play “The Boy Comes Home” written by A.A. Milne.

CONTEXT:

The play is a fateful event in the family affairs of Uncle James, a successful businessman who believes in strict discipline. Philip, the young nephew of Uncle James, comes home after four years of active war services in the army. He is now a mature young man though only 21. He gets up late against the strict orders of his uncle to get up early. Uncle James is angry to see that Philip has violated the strict rules of his discipline. He presses Philip to join him in his jam business. But Philip refuses to do so, holding that he would prefer to be an architect. His uncle refuses to give him the money for that job. Philip takes out his revolver. Uncle James gives in. but suddenly Philip announces to join the business of his uncle. It is a favourable change for the family.
