Piano Analysis



Author: Poetry of D.H. Lawrence Type: Poetry Views: 1827

1918Softly, in the dusk, a woman is singing to me;

Taking me back down the vista of years, till I see

A child sitting under the piano, in the boom of the tingling strings

And pressing the small, poised feet of a mother who smiles as she sings.In spite of myself, the insidious mastery of song

Betrays me back, till the heart of me weeps to belong

To the old Sunday evenings at home, with winter outside

And hymns in the cozy parlor, the tinkling piano our guide.So now it is vain for the singer to burst into clamor

With the great black piano appassionato. The glamor

Of childish days is upon me, my manhood is cast

Down in the flood of remembrance, I weep like a child for the past.

.: :.

On a gloomy evening, as it nears the dark, the poet is reminded of his yesteryear\'s by a woman\'s song(singing for the poet).Her song floats him down the valley of the childhood memories.
In the flashback he sees a small boy sitting under the piano huddled at his mother\'s feet.The child presses his mother\'s feet to gain attention which he gets as a smile of a singing mother.
The song of the woman seems to be cunning and deceptive as it takes him down the corner of his memory lane .The woman\'s song strings him with his mother\'s song and his heart desires to assail itself with the memories of old sunday evenings .He is reminded of his mother\'s sweet hymns in a cozy parlour on cold wintry evenings.It seems as if the mother\'s song subdues the harsh days in life and supplies the warmth of security.
In the last para the poet makes a comparison between the mother\'s song and the song of the woman.The woman\'s song can no longer interest him as he is reminiscent of his mother\'s hymns.The woman\'s song now seems to be a loud outcry of confused noises as compared to the singing mother of retrospect.
Further, the poet is full of his glossy remembrances of his past.He is filled with the memories of his innocent years and desperately wants to be oblivious of his present manhood.Lastly, he weeps like a little boy yearning for his childhood as it lol.

In Twilight a woman is singing to the speaker playing the great black piano which drives the speaker to his past and glorious childhood memories. Hence he becomes nostalgic. In the flashback scene, he draws the scene of himself sitting under the piano, listening to the tingling strings of the piano played by his mother.
He presses the feet of his mother to gain attention of her towards him. Further he imagines the scene of her mother singing hymns in a cold winter. Now it is vain for the speaker to listen the Clamour sound of the woman singing. The glamorous Childhood memory is still in his soul and the compassion and love of him towards the mother as well. Suddenly the manhood in him casts down and he weeps like a child remembering the past.

In the evening, awoman is singing for the speaker. This song takes him back to his childhood and he sees a child sitting under the piano and listening to the sonorous music produced by the piano. In his childhood, his mother used to sit in a comfortable room and sing hymes. As a mischievous child, he used to press her legs but instead of showing her abger she used to smile at him. When she sings the subtle song, it takes the speaker back to childhood and his heart starts longing to be with the same piano at the cozy room of his house on Sunday evenin. So, now it\'s vain for the singer to try to woo him and win his heart as the perfect figure of his mother is still in him, and he\'s driven back to childhood memories and is weeping like a child for the bygone days.
