The Bishop’s candlesticks-1
• Persome: Marie, isn' t the soup boiling yet ?
• Marie: Not yet, madam.
• Persome: Well, it ought to be. You haven't tended the fire
properly, child.
• Marie: But, madam, you yourself made the fire up.
• Persome: Don't answer me back like that. It is rude.
• Marie: Yes, madam.
• Persome: Then don't let me have to rebuke you again.
• Marie: No, madam.
• Persome: I wonder where my brother can be. (Looking at
the clock.) It is after eleven o'clock and no sign of him.
Marie!
Passage 2
Persome : Brother , I have no patience with
you. There , sit down and take your
soup, it has been waiting ever so long.
And if it is spoilt, it serves you right.
Bishop : it smells delicious.
Persome: I’m sure marIe’s mother is not so
ill that you need have stayed out on
such a night as this. I believe those
people pretend to be ill just to have
the Bishop call on them. They have no
thought of the Bishop.
ABOUT BISHOP
• The Bishop was a very noble person, who
was always ready to help anyone in
distress. The doors of his house were
always open.
ABOUT PERSOME
• But his sister Persome was materialistic.
She felt that the simplicity and nobility of
the bishop was misused by the people.
THINKING OF PERSOME
• Bishop was often cheated and taken
undue advantage of. Mere Gringoire, the
old women who lived on the top of the hill
and did no work made such a fool of the
bishop by making him sell his silver salt
cellars to pay her rent
AFTER THE CONVICT BREAKS IN THE
HOSUE
• One day, past midnight a convict enters
the bishop’s house and asks for food at
the point of a knife. The convict is rude,
hard hearted, rough and suspicious and
full of fear. The bishop treats him with
kindness and provides him food and
shelter.
• The convict was tempted to steal the bishops
silver candlesticks. But he gets caught and was
arrested and brought before the bishop. This
candlestick was very dear to the bishop as it was
the parting gift presented to him by his mother.
But the bishop called the convict his friend. Later
he gave the candlesticks to the convict, blessed
him and told him a secret way to Paris. The
convict was deeply touched and filled with
remorse.
RESULT AT THE END
• The bishop succeeds in reforming the
hardened convict and told him that the
human heart is the abode of God.
