THEMES IN ‘THE PROUD KING’

Some of the themes in the Morries’ The Proud King are the following;

  1. Disgraceful outcome of pride.
  2. The supremacy of God over creation.
  3. The incorrigible nature of man.
  4. God’s intervention in the affairs of man.
  5. The deceitfulness of riches.

1. DISGRACEFUL OUTCOME OF PRIDE

As the saying goes,” pride goes before a fall”. King Jovinian is brought down from his high tower of pride by God almighty. He had earlier mused on his bed how great he was and wondered why he was not God while he lived. God heard it and set to humble the so proud king. The man who was born in royalty, who had never seen affliction, found himself naked, and hungry in the course of the day. All the people he had ever helped and even people in his own household denied him. He became a cast away and a destitute begging for food and clothes until he came to himself and acknowledged God as the only saviour.

2. SUPREMACY OF GOD OVER CREATION

A theme that runs through the poem is that of God’s supremacy over mankind.
