Q.:- Describe the caricature. How does if represent the relationship between Bismarck and the elected deputies of Parliament? What interpretation of democratic processes is the artist trying to convey?

 

Answer:-

The caricature depicts Bismarck, Chancellor of Germany as holding a whip (signifying that he is a ruthless man ruling with an iron hand) while leading the Parliament. The deputies who were elected are afraid of him and so are hiding under their tables.

The caricature depicts the dominance of Bismarck over the deputies and how he despised liberalism and parliamentary assemblies.
The artist is trying to convey that the democratic process in Germany was very shallow and the roots of constitutionalism were poor.
