The Lake Isle Of Innisfree

Chapter – 4



Thinking about the text:

Q.1. What kind of place is Innisfree?

(i) the three things the poet wants to do when he goes back there. (stanza-I)

Ans. The poet wants to build a cabin of clay and wattles. He wants to plant nine rows of beans and make a hive for honey bee. Then he wants to live alone listening to the mild noise of the bees heard in open places.

(ii) what he hears and sees there and its effect on him? (stanza-Il)

Ans. He hears the cricket singing in the morning there. He sees the mild light at mid night and purple glow of the sun at noontime at Innisfree. In the evening he the linnet’s flying.

(iii) what he hears in his “heart’s core” even when he is far away from Innisfree? (stanza-IIII)

Ans. Even when he is far away from Innisfree, in his heart’s core he hears the law sounds of the lake water lapping by the shore.

Q.2. By now you may have concluded that Innisfree is a simple, natural place ful of beauty and peace. How does the poet contrast it with where he now stands?

Ans. The place where the poet stands now is an urban locality. The roadway and the grey pavements justify this. The colour of any urban area is generally grey. Life in urban area is artificial which is in contrast with the natural atmosphere and simplicity found in places like Innisfree. In city life one can hardly hear bees humming; crickets singing, linnets flying and water making lapping sound. There is neither any roadway nor any grey pavement at Innisfree. In cities no one build cabin of clay and wattle nor do people grow beans.

Q.3. Do you think Innisfree is only a place or a state of mind? Does the poet actually miss the place of his boyhood days?

Ans. Innisfree is a place in sligo island. It is not an imaginary place or a state of mind. The poet had spent sometime there enjoying peace and tran-quility of the place. In his latter life when he was living in cities, oftentimes he turned nostalgic remembering the sights and sounds of Innisfree. A sense of loss and consequent deprivation grip the poet’s heart.

II. 1. Look at the words the poet uses to describe what he sees and nears at Innisfree:

(i) Bee-loud glade.

(ii) Evening full of the linnet’s wings.

(Ili) Lake water lapping with low sounds.

What pictures do these words bring to your mind?

Ans. These words bring to the mind the pictures of uncontaminated and unravished atmosphere that prevails at Innisfree. ‘Bee loud glade’ means field or open place where the poet could hear the humming sound made by the bees as they fly. ‘Evening full of the linnet’s. wings’ means that in the evening time linnets, a kind of small brown bird with short beaks fly in flock in the sky of Innisfree. ‘Lake water lapping with low sounds’ signifies the continous waves in the lake hitting at the shore. As the waves hit, they make a low a lapping sound. Thus these words collectively bring the image of an unpolluted natural atmosphere.

2. Look at these words:

………. peace comes dropping slow

Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings. What do these words mean to you? What do you think ‘comes dropping slow ………. from the veils of the morning? What does to where the cricket sings” mean?

Ans. ‘Veils of the morning’ means the cover of fog that hangs like a veil on the landscape of Innisfree. Crickets sings in the morning from under the cover of fog. Peace will come slowly like drops of water. The terms collectively mean the peaceful morning atmosphere that prevails at Innisfree.
