Sarojini Naidu’s Poem ‘Indian Dancers’-An Analytical Study

The main theme of the poem ‘Indian Dancers’ by Sarojini Naidu is the enchanting beauty and captivating allure of Indian dancers. The poem celebrates their grace, sensuality, and the effect they have on the senses. It portrays the dancers as celestial beings, evoking a sense of passion and desire in those who witness their performance.

The poem describes the music accompanying the dancers as a strain of keen music that cuts through the stars like a longing cry. The dancers themselves are portrayed as beautiful, with faces resembling houris (mythical beings associated with paradise). Their movements are likened to enchanting watches of the night.

The poetic diction of the poem ‘Indian Dancers’ also incorporates sensory details to convey the dancers’ allure. The scents of red roses and sandalwood mingle with their gem-tangled hair, and their smiles are compared to magical serpents entwining poppy flowers. Their garments, described as glittering purple, are said to burn like trembling dawns in the quivering air.

The poem captures the rhythm and elegance of the dancers’ movements, describing their feet as rhythmical, slumber-soft, and their gestures as winding, flashing, and languishing. Their arms are adorned with jewels, and their fingers are compared to warm, wavering, lily-like in their beauty.

Overall, “Indian Dancers” celebrates the captivating beauty and sensual allure of Indian dancers. The poem’s vivid and evocative language allows readers to visualize the scene and feel the passion and desire that emanate from the dancers’ performance. 0 0 0
