Rabindranath Tagore’s Poem ‘Death’-An Analytical Study

“Death” by Rabindranath Tagore is a poem that contemplates the speaker’s anticipation and longing for death, which is personified as the ultimate fulfillment of life. The speaker addresses death, referring to it as the “last fulfillment of life” and expresses a desire for death to come and whisper to them.

The poem employs the literary device of personification by attributing human qualities and actions to death. Death is portrayed as a significant presence that the speaker has been eagerly awaiting day after day. The speaker has endured the joys and pains of life, keeping watch and bearing them in anticipation of death’s arrival.

The poem also utilizes imagery and metaphor to depict the speaker’s relationship with death. The speaker states that all they are, have, hope for, and love have flowed towards death in secrecy. This imagery suggests a deep and hidden connection, implying that death holds a profound significance in the speaker’s life.

The poem continues with the metaphor of a wedding. The flowers have been woven, symbolizing the preparations for a marriage ceremony, and the garland is ready for the bridegroom. This metaphor implies that death is likened to a bridegroom, and the speaker awaits the union with death as a culmination of their existence.

Furthermore, the poem expresses a sense of separation and solitude. The bride, representing the speaker, will leave her home after the wedding and meet her lord, symbolizing death, alone in the solitude of night. This imagery suggests a transformative journey from the familiar world into the unknown realm of death.

After all, “Death” delves into the themes of mortality, anticipation, and the metaphorical connection between death and a wedding. The poem employs personification, imagery, and metaphor to convey the speaker’s longing for death as the ultimate fulfillment of life. It explores the complex emotions and symbolism associated with the inevitability of mortality. 0 0 0
