but we cannot call the frog

but we cannot call the frog 'wise' because his character is a negative one..he is arrogant,untalented and dismissive.

this a a subjective poem by vikram seth. through this poem he tries to show two sides of human nature...one is very gullible(nightingale) and the other is very clever(the frog).the nightingale is overpowered by the frog due to her trusting nature and in the whole poem the frog shines out as a hero who was determined,confident and wity whereas the nightingale was totally contrary to his behaviour...she so madly believed in frog's false talks taht she had to pay for it ...she died!! and the frog was successful to overthrow nightingale.
