Asagu Joseph as portrayed in the play is a Nigerian and Beneatha's hand in marriage. His role in the play provided an international perspective on Africa. Asagi is proud of his African heritage in that he hopes to return to Nigeria to help bring positive charge and modern advancement. He makes more efforts to teach Beneathea about his heritage and identity as well. His peaceful ways and calm manner give Beneatha an appreciation of his views even when they disagree. It is clearly seen in the play that Asagi stands in obvious contrast to Beneatha's other suitors. George Muchuson, who is an arrogant African-American and who has lost his identity by assimilating to the white world. Contrasted with George Murchison's abrasive put-downs of Beneatha and George's insistence on retaining his narrow-minded views, Asagai appears as Beneatha's savior from the potential tragedy of her eventually becoming George's wife. Asagai as a custodian of African heritage, he criticizes Beneatha's long hair and persuaded her to cut it just to look more of Africa and natural.
Moreno, Asagai criticizes Beneatha for not being independent as she claims to be because according to him, since her dream of attending medical school is dependent on her father's life insurance money. Asagai is helpful and concerned about the welfare of others. He volunteers to assist in the move to Clybourne Park and offers much-needed consolation and good advice to Beneatha when she is at her lowest. He counsels Beneatha spiritually and emotionally, helping her to get back "on track" as she rails against her brother's foolishness in having lost the money.
He is a motivational speaker who instills acceptable values in Beneatha. This was shown in Beneatha's willingness to accept asagai's marriage proposal and relocate to Nigeria thereby recovering her lost identity. He was used in the okay to make a radical point about race
The poet employed rhetorical questions in the poem to express the vanity of crying and weeping Africans who are reaping what they sowed. Eg in (line 5) "who indeed will hear them without laughter?"
The poet described our complaints as ridiculous and absurd. It justifies the fact that we (the black whole) are suffering from self afflicted "torments" which could be averted by listening to our fore-fathers instructions.
Again the poet employed another rhetorical question in (line 8) " what eyes will watch over large mouths?" This is used by the poet with sarcastic humor to show the mouth of black people weeping hopelessly and unabashedly without a comforter.
Also, "what heart will listen to our clamouring"? in(line 11) he is of the opinion that life and it's adverse challenges more subjected us to "clamouring" and "pitiful anger" so much that it has grown like a tumor in the womb.
"What ear to our pitiful anger" in(line 12) is another rhetorical question employed by the poet to show the sense of self pity which can only earn the contempt of others. In another way the poet used "pitiful anger" to represent a punny feeling of anger which has an unpleasant effect on them and makes other to look at them with pity.
Finally in (line 30) "what ear to our sobbing hearts"?. This by all indication and in a nutshell shows the rational behind our weeping and crying today is the resultant effects of our negligence in ramifications.
According to the poet in the above poem, the summer has many defects unlike his beloved. In the line "Rough winds do shake the darling bad of may"; he explains that summer's day can destroy the bud of flowers unlike his beloved. He goes on further to say that the summer is known for its extreme temperature. It could be too hot as well as too dim, hence making one uncomfortable - the sun can also be divided and hence obscure the earth.
The poet also asserts that the summer's day is too short unlike the days of his beloved. The defects of a summer's day no doubt leads to the withering of trees. Hence the defects of a summer's day makes it impossible to be compared to the poet's beloved.
