Short Summary of “A Crazed Girl” by William Butler Yeats

January 4, 2019 admin 0 Comment

The girl is lonely she do not want to see reality and is singing and dancing to hide her pain and loneliness. She is in search of her lover. Her lover is dead and she also wants to reach the place where her lover is now, by the way of drowning herself to the sea. When she addresses the sea, she feels like sounds of the ocean was communication to her.She is crazy, she is no longer able to hide her pain by the way of singing and dancing, she is frustrated with the fact there is no one to admire her.

There is a sense of beauty and madness in the poem. The craziness of the girl doesn’t mean she is mad or insane, but the poet wants her craziness to be seen as a path to liberation. He wants the world to know that the girl who is liberating herself from all the pains and fear by the way of dance, music and poetry is brave. She did not choose to shut down her world and close all her contacts with everyone, rather she chose to face the world bravely despite what happened to her.
