The Lake Isle Of Innisfree Analysis



Author: Poetry of William Butler Yeats Type: Poetry Views: 3656





I WILL arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,

And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made:

Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honeybee,

And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,

Dropping from the veils of the mourning to where the cricket sings;

There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,

And evening full of the linnet's wings.

I will arise and go now, for always night and day

I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;

While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,

I hear it in the deep heart's core.

I THINK THE POET WANTS TO ENJOY THE FREEDOM AND BEAUTY OF THE NATURE , HE WANTS TO GO TO INNISFREE AS HE IS FED UP OF THE CITY LIFE AND HE WANTS TO LEAD A PEACEFUL LIFE
he believe in innissfree heaven is there and he compares
to heaven

I feel the poet says he craves death, or life after death. And Innisfree symbolizes heaven. The world he speaks of is an ideal one.

I think lake isle of innisfree is a poem that pleases one ssenses and soothes ones mind. Its a very good poem with a very good meaning which can even be understood by any dumb person as yeats has used simple diction.I think one could sense the peacefulness that yeats mentions even by reading it just once. It makes you calm and one could even feel that he is at the peace that budddhism mentions,enlightenment. Even the words used by yeats have a sense of tranquil in them.They are very nice,smooth words.When we go through the poem you would even feel that you are a very free person although you are not,i mean although you are at the midst of a chaotic life.
I would appreciate if someone could please add more facts to my idea that \"LAKE ISLE OF INNISFREE IS A POEM THAT PLEASES THE SENSES AND SOOTHES THE MIND\"
THANKS

In "The Lake Isle of Innisfree", as mentioned so often by the comments above, Yeats aspires for the peace that one can get while being in Innisfree. He lives in the city, as implied by the pavement, and wants to live a simple life in Innisfree, where he would have peace of mind. It is important to note that Innisfree is untouched by the Industrial Revolution, which we know from when he describes the nature of Innisfree. However, as much as he wants to lead such a life, he is unable to, because that the Innisfree he wants is no longer physically there, and that it exists only in his mind and soul. From the word "pavement" we can guess that the isle of Innisfree was eventually industrialized, which is where he lived. He also writes that he wants to build a house there, which implies that he was there as a boy, but that he may not have lived there.

This poem is extremely mainly of him wanting to have peace. That is why he is going to Innisfree

I think it is interesting that he need to 'build' the cabin rather than return to it. It seems that the idyllic place he imagines is not in actual existence, but rather has been altered and perfected by memory and hindsight, and that especial longing for home that one only gets when away from it.

innisfree is truly a excellent poem,the imagary throughout gives deep meaning to yeats yearning for innisfree,he truly wants to cum over the land that is innisfree.

This guy wants a beehive but if he had one he would probably change his mind cuz bee stings hurt

| Posted on 2010-01-21 | by a guest


.: :.

the poem is obviously about the urge to shoot his fleshy combat arsenal with out the disturbance of rushing traffic and homeless men jerking off in perfect harmony with himself in the alleys both howling like lycanthropes on a bare moon. he desires to shoot a load into the palm of his hand in peace with out the constant reminder that his neighbors can hear the climax of loneliness echoing off his veiled window panes. because nothing turns him on more that the gentle strumming of bee acoustics, and the moments of currents mocking his vary hand gestures as he relieves the stress of the day, planting aborted seeds into the damp soil of Innisfree.
and if you don't make that connection you have never made your self cum.

In this poem yeats makes it clear that he seeks the serenity and tranquility in a peaceful environment. He wishes to go back to the simple life ("I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree; And a small cabin build there, of [ a simple abode] made.
He uses the power of imagination to write this poem he holds in his heart. For if it is not true in his heart, it is nowhere.

Innisfree is a real island in Sligo, the beautiful country in the west of Ireland where Yeats spent many summers as a child, visiting his grandparents.

Never before have I witnessed such a blatant disregard for spelling and punctuation than I have in the above comments. It's actually disgraceful.

i think that as ususally yeats trates one another problem of humans spirit traiting different rhymes of poetry also here he tries to expres us the troubled spirit of himself and he makes this poem very easy to understand because we know well the situaiton wich was in those times when yeats started to make chages on poetry or in literature ...respectfully.

I agree with lost this poem is about him wanting to get peace with hisself and he wants to go swimming and fishing over fields of beans!

well, the poem has a rich imagery... Its actually, i think, a comparison of the stages of life. It says that the peace he found in the Lake was good for troubled soul...So true!

Say something else people

The speaker of the poem wants to go to Innisfree. It is isolated, simple and is surrounded by nature. He writes this poem with an intamacy with the scale of things for example the dew. In the last stanza he talks about the world he need to leave behind. Only in this way can he be completely true to his "deep heart's core."

.: LOST :.

Throughout the three short quatrains the poem explores the speaker’s longing for the peace and tranquility of his boyhood haunt, Innisfree.
“The Lake Isle of Innisfree” suggests that a life of simplicity in nature will bring peace to the troubled speaker. However, the poem is the speaker’s recollection of Innisfree, and therefore the journey is an emotional and spiritual escape rather than an actual one. Innisfree may be a symbol for the speaker’s passed youth, which the speaker is unable to return to in the “real,” or physical, world. Emotionally, the speaker can return again and again to the tranquility of Innisfree.
