About the Poet
William Butler Yeats (13 June 1865 – 28 January 1939) was an Irish poet and one of the foremost figures of 20th century literature.
In December 1923, Yeats was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature, for his always inspiring poetry, which is a highly artistic and gives expression to the spirit of a whole nation.

Yeats is generally considered as one of the twentieth century’s popular English poets. He was a symbolic poet because he used allusive imagery and symbolic structures throughout his career. Yeats chose words and assembled them brilliantly in his poetry. In addition to a particular meaning, they suggest other abstract thoughts that seem more significant. Yeats died at a hotel in France.

Central idea of the Poem
This poem reflects on the tranquillity of life. In fact, living in a cottage is quite different from fast and hectic life. We can enjoy nature when there is peace of mind. But real peace is impossible in a city. We can find it in a solitary place only.

Theme of the Poem
The poet says that he is going to Innisfree (an island in Ireland) to build a small, simple hut. He will have nine bean-rows and a honeybee hive. He wants to live alone in peace with nature. He has desire to enjoy the slow pace of country side living.

At last, the poet speaks that every night he hears the lake water lapping against the shore. Even though he lives in a city with the crowded roads, he is drawn to the rural sounds of Innisfree. The poet is attracted to the sounds made by the rustling trees. Of course, he has desire to keep himself aloof from the bustling sound of buses for sometime.

The Lake Isle of Innisfree Summary In Hindi

कविता का केंद्रीय विचार
यह कविता जीवन की शांति को प्रतिबिंबित करती है। वास्तव में कुटिया में जीवन व्यतीत करना भागदौड़ वाले जीवन से पूर्णतः अलग है। हम प्रकृति का आनंद तभी उठा सकते हैं, जब हमारे मन में शांति हो। लेकिन शहर में वास्तविक शांति असंभव है। हम इसे केवल शांत स्थान पर ही प्राप्त कर सकते हैं।

कविता का सार
कवि कहता है कि वह Innisfree जा रहा है जो कि Ireland का एक द्वीप है। वह वहाँ एक छोटी कुटिया बनाना चाहता है। वहाँ नौ फलियों की पक्तियाँ और मधुमक्खियों का छत्ता होगा। वह प्रकृतिक वातावरण में शांति के साथ अकेला रहना चाहता है। उसकी इच्छा ग्रामीण क्षेत्र में सहज जीवन व्यतीत करने की है।

अंत में कवि कहता है कि नित्य रात्रि में वह झील के पानी को किनारे से टकराते हुए सुनता है। यद्यपि वह उस शहर में रहता है, जिसकी सड़कें भीड़ वाली हैं। वह Innisfree के मधुर ध्वनि के प्रति आकर्षित है। कवि पेड़ों की सरसराहट से मोहित है। नि:संदेह वह स्वयं को बसों की खड़खड़ाहट भरी आवाज से अलग रखना चाहता है।
