Henry Derozio Michael MadhusudanDutt and Toru Dutt are if not unsung but at least. undersung protagonists claimants from the nineteenth century of unfulfilled renown who set. stage for the beginning and development of Indian English poetry Their lives and literary. careers reveal them as microcosmic representatives of the young generation of the period. This article attempts to trace the eco consciousness in the poetry of these poets through. an analysis of their select poems Possibly under the influence of the English Romantics and. more so because the Indian psyche especially in the pre colonial and early colonial times. had been more eco centric these poets display a very high eco consciousness in their poems. Derozio s masterpiece The Fakeer of Jungheera is set in landscapes that reflect the. emotional state of the central personages Nature seems to be sensitive to the travails of. Nuleeni and is shell shocked at her plight much unlike the Chorus of Brahmans or even the. Chorus of Women Years of initiation into the patriarchal discourse results in the Chorus of. Women speaking the same language as the Chorus of the Brahmins Thus the exploited lisps. the tongue of the exploiter The Chorus of Women sings of the bliss that awaits the widow in. the world beyond and decides on her behalf that it is best for her to leave this corrupt material. world Nature however empathises with her and as she mounts the pyre and watches stunned. Now all is silent sad and still,As moonlight on a heath clad hill.
No insect s wing is heard to whirr,The very air has ceased to stir. And expectation breathless bends, To watch the pile that grief ascends Derozio Song 119. Indian Journal of Postcolonial Literatures 5 17 2 Dec 2017. The Neglected Minstrel too dwells on the theme of Nature being empathetic to the. miseries of the protagonist in stark contrast to the cold insensitivity of fellow human beings. and therefore hints at the need to preserve Nature our sincerest friend This poem is narrated. in a dramatic manner with a bard singing to his beloved the tale of another unfortunate bard s. tragic fate This poem that describes a lonely life and a miserable death too is prefixed with an. epigraph that suggests the theme of a genius living an unappreciated life The setting in which. this nightingale sang his lay was sylvan but save from the world of nature none from the. world of human habitation gave him company The poem begins with the poet in a. Wordsworthian use of memory trying to rekindle in the mind of his beloved the beautiful. moments of love spent in the lap of nature before veering on to narrate the story of the. luckless bard and his tragic life and finally closing by finding similarities between his own. fate the fate of the bard of the story and the fate of all the gifted souls caught in a hopelessly. material world, The poet narrates how the bard in question was in love and how his young heart will. open like a rose and how the joyous moments were forever recorded into his psyche Rich in. natural imagery the poet suggests how a sensitive soul would be sensitive not just to the. charms of his beloved but also to the beauties of nature He writes how the splendours of. God s creations had hastened the muse in him,And when he heard upon a moonlit night. The voice of the blue river as it passed,He peopled it with creations of his brain.
The soft melodious wave and fondly deemed,It was a spirit speaking to his soul. Even from beneath the water But the Breeze,The evening breeze which from its cavern crept. Like music from a shell woke blissful thoughts,Like fragrance out of flowers in his fond breast. And delicate as those which float in dreams, Indian Journal of Postcolonial Literatures 6 17 2 Dec 2017. The essence of delicious Poesy Song 179 180, When after the death of his beloved his friend betrays him it was too much for the.
sensitive soul to bear and thus disillusioned he breathed his last Even at the end of the poem. when though the world of human beings had deserted him Nature still sides with him. Their fragrance flowers around are flinging,To consecrate this beauteous spot. And winds a requiem wild are singing,Which man inhuman man forgot Derozio Song 182. The Poet s Grave is a statement of despair at the materialistic world s inability to. appreciate the fine art of poetry What is again noteworthy is how Derozio emphasizes the. kinship shared by Nature and the poet Shunned by the society that the Poet lived and died in. it is Nature that gives him companionship in life and death When he lived Nature inspired. him through its myriad beauties and when he died it was Nature that lamented his demise. There all in silence let him sleep his sleep,No dream shall flit into that slumber deep. No wandering mortal thither once shall wend,There nothing o er him but the heavens shall weep. There never pilgrim at his shrine shall bend,But holy stars alone their nightly vigils keep 36.
Many of Derozio s sonnets are those that strike a note of melancholy and reflect his. disillusionment with the happenings of this world To the Moon is such a sonnet that uses of. the moon as the metaphor to comment on the sad state of affairs on the earth The poem begins. with the poet questioning the moon as to why it was guiltily wandering through the skies as if. it had done some grave act of misconduct He then wonders whether the moon is sad because. its hopes have been dashed and then finally reaches the conclusion that its gloominess is. caused by its proximity to the earth which was brimming with all sorts of sorrows It is the. ceaseless gazing on the thousand showers of ill that inundate this world of ours that has. touched its heart Thus Nature is seen to mirror the human predicament. Indian Journal of Postcolonial Literatures 7 17 2 Dec 2017. To the Dog Star is a romantic address to Nature to bless his mother with the joys that. only Nature can give Here too the distance between hope and reality is categorically. mentioned when he writes There dost thou shine and shine like Hope afar Derozio Song. 44 In lines that remind us of the English Romantic poets Derozio sings of the beauty of the. Dog Star and the effect of its heavenly beauty on his psyche this to my heart such rapture. brings As never may be told 44 The beauty of the star reminds the poet of his mother who. too was perfect and thus the last five lines of the poet the subject of discussion changes from. the star to the lady,Thy lovely light,Eternal Sirius calls one dear to mind. For oh her form was beautiful and bright,And like thy ray her soul was most refined. And made for tenderness and purest love, Then smile on her bright star smile sweetly from above 44. When Derozio talks of the withered bough or the sighing breeze in The Harp of. India it is emblematic of the decadence into which the country had fallen Thus by implication. to restore the country to glory the bough needs to gain its foliage back and the breeze needs to. regain its freshness and vitality, Commenting on the influence of the English Romantic Poets in the way the early Inidan. English Poets approached NatureRosinkaChaudhuri says. Often a line may evoke an indisputable resonance from the English Romantics such. as I wandered forth alone I knew not where The language used is representative of. readings in English poetry The lark springing from his bed With loud acclaims to. every grove and bower Did trumpet forth Day s nativity Such essentially English. features emphasize the dislocation in these poems as a result of the colonial encounter. and indicate their textual origins Chaudhari102 103. Like the English Romantic poets Madhusudan s poems have frequent references to. Nature Besides this his early poems show his fondness for the scenic beauty of Sagardanri. Jessore where he spent his childhood and which left an indelible impression on psyche of. this budding poet In many poems Madhusudan recreates the environs that nurtured him in his. Indian Journal of Postcolonial Literatures 8 17 2 Dec 2017. childhood the trees the river Kpotaksha the giant banyan tree that stood on its bank the. storms that frequently lashed Sagardanri the beauty of its starry night among other things. For instance in a poem dedicated to Bysac he writes of how The spreading Banyan s shade. the warbling breeze Could charm my soul Gupta 494 In lines which combine Keatsian. sensuousness with Wordsworthian idea of Nature offering a panacea for all ills Madhusudan. writes in a poem titled Composed During a Morning Walk. I love to see you streamlet gaily run,And blush like maiden Beauty meek and fair.
When the bright beams of yon refulgent sun,Crowd on her trembling bosom pure and clear. All these I love and Oh in these I find, A balm to soothe the fever of my mind Gupta 491 492. He is conscious also of the violent and destructive aspect of Nature Having experienced. the ferocity of the storm in his childhood he just needed to peep into his past to paint a picture. of what he dubs as it s dread majesty In a poem titled A Storm he writes. Hail his dread majesty,He comes the Sun himself has fled. As if affrighted from the sky,Lo every tree he passes by. Submissive bows its leafy head Gupta 496, S C Dasgupta also notes the influence of the English romantics in Madhusudan s poetry.
The English Romantic poets worked on Michael Madhusudan s poetic temperament in great. manner as it happened with early Indian poets in English Like Derozio and Toru Dutt. Madhusudan was highly influenced by the English romantics 186. Like the Romantic poets Madhusudan excels in the description of nature visible also. in this very initial effort of his For example he describes in words that sound similar to. Wordsworth s nature poems the hermitage nestled in beauty. It was as if some joyous fairy Queen, Indian Journal of Postcolonial Literatures 9 17 2 Dec 2017. Had rear d this spot of Love the nest to be,How lovelily the Moon there cast her sheen. And fring d with sparkling silver every tree,How gaily every warbling breeze perfum d. Came there to woo the rose that in soft brightness bloom d Gupta 503. His early poems show his fondness for the scenic beauty of Sagardanri Jessore where. he spent his childhood and which left an indelible impression on psyche of this budding poet. In many poems Madhusudan recreates the environs that nurtured him in his childhood the. trees the river Kpotaksha the giant banyan tree that stood on its bank the storms that frequently. lashed Sagardanri the beauty of its starry night among other things For instance in a poem. dedicated to Bysac he writes of how The spreading Banian s shade the warbling breeze. Could charm my soul Gupta 494 In lines which combine Keatsian sensuousness with. Wordsworthian idea of nature offering a panacea for all ills Madhusudan writes in a poem.
