Greece Chunder Dutt Samarsi | A Critical Analysis

‘Samarsi’ is a poem about an individual. His name is Samarsi. He was a poor young boy. Later on, in search of his livelihood, he became a robber. The poem bears five stanzas and each stanza comprises six lines.

The poet says that Samarsi was bold and he was the pride of his clan. But he was so much poor. He belonged to Rajasthan, but in broad Rajasthan, he had not an acre of land. So he left home and came to Jumna in favor of the moors and became a leader of them. The Moors (Moslems) feasted in the hall and bower. They always kept the crescent flag fluttering in the temple and tower. Samarsi with the Moors lived a life of robbery. They could throw dust to the eyes of the soldiers who kept watch by day and night. He became so powerful that his will was the law. The soldiers always kept a watch on the forest beside the lake. In the forest, there was robuck (a kind of little male deer) and partridge (a kind of bird). In the pool and in the stream there were seen ‘perch’ (a kind of freshwater fish) and salmon (a kind of big fish). Though there were warders on the hill and plain, yet Samarsi defied them and harried (plundered) his father’s land.

He became so tactful and shrewd in a robbery that an outlaw against him was decreed by the chief. Yet Samarsi had homage from high and law. While night fell in the copsewood by Saloombra Park and in the vale of Vanmora, then Samarsi became ready and stood by wood with a sword in his hand. In the cave of Pukarna, beneath the green hill, Samarsi went at night taking light in his hand and reveled in freedom till morning.

Thus the poem shows the activities of Samarsi which were illegal and anti-society. Moreover, it expresses his love of freedom and love of nature.

Though the language seemed easy, it is difficult to comprehend easily as the poet has not expressed the theme explicitly. 0 0 0
