For he seemed to me again like a king.
Like a king in exile, uncrowned in the underworld,
Now due to be crowned again.
And so, I missed my chance with one of the lords
Of life.
And I have something to expiate:
A pettiness.
(a) Why is the snake called a king in exile? 
(b) What is the pettiness referred to in these lines? 
(c) What does the word ‘underworld’ mean?

Answer:
(a) The snake is driven out from its natural habitat by human beings just like a king exiled from his kingdom; therefore, it is likened to a king in exile.
(b) The speaker’s attempt at driving away the snake using a stick is the pettiness referred to in these lines.
(c) The word ‘underworld’ refers to the space under the Earth where the snake is forced to live as he is driven out of his natural habitat.
