Question 3

Examine the influence of women in the play.



It is noteworthy that for a balanced response the influence of both mortal women and the goddess must be discussed. The influence of Iyunloye who is captured and married to prince Adejumo which also prompt Maye Okunade to wage a war on the Owu people. The influence of Erelu Afin when she disobedies the gods concerning prince Adejumo at birth. Lawumi’s influence on the allied forces, using them to destroy the arrogant Owus and later soliciting the assistance of Anlugbua and other deities to punish the allied forces for destroying the shrine of the gods while sacking Owu. The Women in the play trigger and influence major events in the play. They provoke the tragedy of Owu and ended as the focus of the post war activities.

Candidates’ performance was fair.
