Abstract

Poetry has emerged as an art in the modern Indian literature and poets have been using it to express their thoughts and ideas through poetic licence. Nissim Ezekiel was a great poet of our country who won millions of hearts through his style of writing. The symbolism he used in his work had deep meaning which can encourage any reader to think further about the life from a fresh perspective. His work was awarded time to time with Padmashri in 1988 and Sahitya Akademi in 1983. To understand his notable contributions in the world of Indian poetry, it is very important to know about the techniques he used in his writing. Symbolism is one of the most appreciated techniques he used in his poems which justifies his intellectual approach in his writing styles. Symbolism is basically an art of expressing ideas and thoughts through symbols. For example in one of his popular poems called ‘Enterprise’ Nissim has made meaningful use of symbols to present his ideas. The word ‘pilgrimage’ in his poem symbolises life, ‘sun’ symbolises hostility between nature and human aspirations, ‘thunder’ symbolises your inner voice and so on. The use of symbols in his poetry has given beautiful meaning to his ideas which can be easily related and understood by all of us.
