Indian Sensibility in Sarojini Naidu’s Poetry

Author : Dr. Sandhya Chouhan 1 2

Date of Publication :20th August 2020

Abstract: Like her brilliant predecessor Toru Dutt, Sarojini Naidu also springs from the very soul of India and is rooted firmly to her soil. Despite her literary affiliation with the English poets, her sensibility is purely Indian. For all her western garb, for all her adoption of English as her medium of poetic expression, she remains essentially the daughter of her race and land. Her themes, thoughts and even the imagery she employs in her poems are typically native in spirit and character. Her poetry paints the panorama of Indian life in all its colours and moods. The life of the Indian people fascinated and inspired Sarojini Naidu the most. She loves to be among them and share their hopes and despairs, joys and sorrows, ambitions and aspirations.
