Sarojini Naidu  The Snake Charmer  An Analytical Study

Sarojini Naidu’s Poem ‘The Snake Charmer’-An Analytical Study

The theme of the poem “The Snake Charmer” by Sarojini Naidu can be interpreted as the seductive power of art and the allure of escapism.

The poem revolves around the snake charmer’s ability to captivate the snake with his flute-playing. The snake charmer calls out to the snake, inviting it to emerge from hiding and experience a world of enchantment. He describes an enticing setting filled with moonlight, fragrant perfumes, and blooming flowers. The language used is evocative and paints a picture of an alluring and dreamlike environment.

The theme explores how art, in this case, the music of the flute, can have a transformative effect on the audience. The snake, symbolic of primal desires and instincts, is enticed by the charmer’s music and is drawn towards a realm of pleasure and beauty. The charmer promises to nourish and protect the snake, offering it a luxurious life in a palace-like bower.

The poem also touches upon the theme of escapism. The snake charmer presents an alternative world to the snake, one that is removed from its natural habitat. By luring the snake with promises of milk, honey, laughter, and delight, the charmer entices the snake to abandon its current existence for a seemingly more appealing and enticing reality.

Overall, the theme of the poem ‘The Snake Charmer’ suggests the captivating power of art to transport and seduce, while also exploring the human desire to escape from the mundane and embrace a world of enchantment and pleasure.
The imagery of the keovas, deep woods, jasmine, and oleanders adds to the sensory experience of the poem. The language used is evocative and melodic, reflecting the charm and seductive quality of the snake charmer’s flute. 0 0 0
