What is the theme of the poem Snowdrop?

1 Answer

  1. The main theme reflected in the poem Snowdrop is cruel nature of winter season. Usually, in the poetry, nature is presented as full of life, energy, hope and beauty. However in the poem the poet throws light on the other side of nature. When the winter appears, everything seems to be lifeless and warmth less. There are no colours, no swift movements. The mouse which is known for its quick movements is dulled and looks dead. Crow and weasel also appear like brass. They loose their senses.

    Usually a flower is a sign of beauty, hope and life. However the colourless and pale flower of snowdrop depicts doom and death. It is the sign of harsh nature which makes the animals to die.
