396. Play: Contemplation (continued)
The man sits by the fire crying. He falls asleep dreaming of having a wife. One morning he tells the children to work while he is away, but when he gets home they have done nothing. This is his life.

Another man living close-by has no children but two wives. His wives do all the work for him and he is really taken care of well. The play symbolises the anxiety in leaving the well-known society for the western way of life.
