FATHER TO SON

THE ONGOING CONFLICT BETWEEN FATHER AND SON

The poem revolves around a conflict between father and son who are in a serious communication gap. Though they live in the same house/globe, they are like strangers to each other. The father broods over this and this forms the centre of the poem.

….Contd

  • He introspects with an agrarian imagery where he feels he has sown his seed in a stranger’s land that forbids him from owning it. He admits that he cannot share what his son loves and expects him to come back home like the Prodigal/lost son in the parable of Jesus in the Bible. He is ready to forgive him and develop a new love from sorrow.

  • But his son feels anger growing out of sorrow and admits the vain efforts of both in understanding each other.
