Introduction of the lesson- THE LAKE ISLE OF INNISFREE

William Butler Yeats longs to live in a peaceful and beautiful place. In his imagination comes the name of Innisfree where he spent a lot of time as a boy. He knows that a place of natural beauty and peace like Innisfree makes the human soul light. One enjoys life fully in the lap of nature.
 ((विलियम बट्लर यीट्स एक शांत और सुंदर स्थान पर जीवन व्यतीत करने की कामना करता है । उसकी कल्पना में इनिसफ्री नामक स्थान का नाम आता है, जहाँ पर उसने एक बालक के रूप मेँ बहुत-सा समय बिताया था । वह जानता है कि इनिसफ्री जैसी प्राकृतिक सुंदरता और शांति वाला स्थान मनुष्य की आत्मा का भार हल्का कर देता है । मनुष्य प्रकृति की गोद में जीवन का पूर्ण आनंद लेता है ।)


 “The Lake Isle of Innisfree”, written by W.B. Yeats in 1888, is a twelve-line poem composed of three quatrains. It reveals the poet’s nostalgia for the peace and tranquillity he enjoyed on the Lake Isle during his childhood. This desire to lead a simple life on the quiet island also presents the poet’s dislike for humdrum of life in cities and towns. So deep are the emotions of the poet that he can, in his mind, hear the waves striking against the banks of the Lake.
