Question 7: Do April and June want their sister to go away soon?

Question 8: What reason does Beauty give for wanting to return to the castle?

Question 10: What happens when the Beast becomes transformed?

Answer: When the Beast transforms, he changes into a handsome prince; he marries Beauty and she becomes a princess; her father is happy for them and gives his blessing; they live (happily ever after?) in the castle. We can presume that her sisters will not be too happy about all this. Perhaps they, and the rest of the family, will also benefit from the generosity of the Beast and Beauty.

Question 11: Who said the following?

(a) ‘And it smells so sweet’ – Beauty
(b) ‘Who on earth is he?’ – Jack
(c) ‘Is he kind to you?’ – The merchant
(d) ‘He didn’t harm you, did he?’ – Joseph
(e) ‘And mine!’ – June
(f) ‘I am dying because of my love for you!’ – The Beast
(g) ‘Shall I clear your plates away now?’ – Beauty

Question 12: Who might have said the following?

a. ‘Hurry up with that cleaning.’ – April or June
b. ‘He was frightening to look at.’ – The merchant
c. ‘He treated me with kindness and love.’ – Beauty
d. ‘You are all invited to the wedding.’ – Beauty and/or the Beast

Question 13: Does the behaviour of April and June improve in the later parts of the play? Give examples with your answer.

Answer: No, the behaviour of April and June does not improve in the later parts of the play. Some suggestions: When their father returns, they rudely say that they hope he did not bring them roses. They are quick to encourage Beauty to go to the Beast, even though it may be dangerous. They are selfish when they say that they will use the treasure for themselves. Their comments about Beauty’s dress perhaps indicate jealousy. They want Beauty to stay so that she can look after the father because they do not want to.

Question 14: Read the line and answer the questions:

At last! My wish has come true!

(a) Who is speaking to whom?

Answer: The merchant is speaking to Beauty.

(b) Why does the speaker say: ‘At last!’?

Answer: Beauty has been away for over two months. Her father is worried about her.

(c) What was the wish?

Answer: The merchant’s wish was that the beast would allow Beauty to come home for a day or two before he died.

(d) What effect does the wish coming true have on the speaker?

Answer: The wish coming true brings new life into the merchant’s old body; he feels much better.
