Sarojini Naidu’s Poem ‘My Dead Dream’-An Analytical Study

The poem “My Dead Dream” by Sarojini Naidu explores the resurrection of a long-lost dream and the speaker’s plea for it to return to its resting place.

The main theme of the poem is the speaker’s reaction to the revival of a dream that had been buried in the past. The speaker questions why the dream has resurfaced and pleads for it to return to its original resting place. The poem highlights the sanctity of the speaker’s current state and the desire to protect it from the intrusion of the resurrected dream.

The speaker addresses the dream, questioning its intentions and expressing a desire to protect their current state of being. The dream is portrayed as a potential disruptor, capable of tearing away the sacred green garlands of leaves, scaring away the pigeons of joy, defiling the robes of a priest, and weaving its mournful sounds into the celebrations of love.

The diction of the poem is passionate and pleading, with the speaker urging the dream to go back to its resting place under the snow-covered forests. The speaker declares that they alone have the authority to bid the dream to depart and protect the sanctity of their heart’s shrine.

In conclusion, “My Dead Dream” delves into the conflict between the revival of a buried dream and the speaker’s desire to maintain the sanctity of their current state. The poem’s language evokes a sense of urgency and emotional turmoil, allowing readers to empathize with the speaker’s plea for the dream to return to its rightful place. 0 0 0
