bring out the theme of isolation dislocation and nostalgia as brought out in the poem the dolphins

1 Answer

  1. The dolphins are taken away from their natural habitat and forced to live in the confined space of a pool. They are isolated from each other. All the dolphins are separated and they cannot swim in the great ocean together anymore; “The other knows/ and out of love reflects me for myself.” The dolphins have also been dislocated from their natural habitat; “We are in our element but we are not free.” They are being forced to live in the man-made pool and perform tricks for the humans. Isolation and dislocation from one another and from their home makes them reminisce their old days. They live upon nostalgia, thinking about their days beneath the Sun and the Moon and out on the vast seas and oceans, “We see our silver skin flash by like memory/ of somewhere else.”
