  1. Following are the main themes in the poem A Tiger in the Zoo:

    Liberty and Freedom

    Every human or animal loves freedom. No one likes to be imprisoned. In the poem, the tiger is not free. It has been encaged and its liberty has been snatched away. It cannot show its power and courage as it used to show in the jungle. It cannot roam around. Thus it has rage in its eyes. But it is encaged. Hence it cannot do anything and thus remains quiet.

    Animals Rights

    The poet is also throwing light on the rights of animals. Man has encaged wild animals for his entertainment. It is unjust because every living organism must have right to liberty and freedom. In the case of tiger, he has been forcibly put in the cage.
