Here,Yeats is thinking with great reverie or anxiety that that the turbulent weatherof war has already visited the world that was supposed to happen later infuture he doubted. Yeats is concerned that he hears the overloaded harsh soundof the war drums. Anne’s innocence is juxtaposed with the contrasting “sea”which is “murderous.”“Murderous innocence” is an oxymoron. The searepresents the world and the crowds around her, and as they are evil,destructive and take advantage of her innocence, they are “murderous.”Moreover, the “sea” or the world is termed as “murderous innocence” because aspart of the “sea”, Anne’s innocence is ‘murderous’ to herself because itenables others to manipulate her.

Poet: W. B. Yeats

Context: 'A Prayer for My Daughter'opens with the image of the child sleeping in acradle half hidden by its hood. The child sleeps innocently amidst the “howlingstorm” outside, but Yeats couldn’t settle down due to the storm inside. Thestorm howlingsymbolizesdestruction mentioned by the poet in his‘The Second Coming’. The wind bred in Atlantic has noobstacles except the estate of Lady Gregory, referring to the poet’s patroness,and a bare hill. The direct impact of the wind, meaning to the force of theoutside world, especially on his daughter, worries the poet. Because of thisgreat gloom he walked and prayed for his daughter to be protected from thephysical storm outside and the political storm brewing across Ireland. A violent, dreadful stormis blazing outside. The poet says that the ‘haystack and roof - leveling wind’is blowing directly from the Atlantic but is obstructed by just one naked hilland the woods of Gregory’s estate.

6) O may she live like some green laurel

Rooted in one dear perpetual place.

Ans: Poem: A prayerfor my daughter

Poet: W. B. Yeats

Context: Yeats continues to talk about his hopes andexpectations for his daughter. As she grew up, he wants her to be happy andcontent. He wants her to become “a flourishing hidden tree” and her thoughtslike a “linnet” referring to its innocence and cheerfulness.

Yeats wants Anne to have a solid stability in her mind.“Rooted in one dear perpetual place.” Means she should be confined in a singlemarital life at a single home.

Answer the following questions in 300 words.

1) How does the poem reveal the concerns of afather towards his daughter?

Ans: Yeats's "A Prayer for My Daughter" does indeed show the concern of afather for his daughter, but in rather conventional terms. We must bear in mindthat when the poem was written, in 1919, fathers were still generally expectedto guide the life choices of their daughters, and Yeats is no different.APrayer for My Daughter by William Butler Yeats opens with an image of thenewborn child sleeping in a cradle. A storm is raging with great fury outsidehis residence. A great gloom is on Yeats’ mind and is consumed with anxiety asto how to protect his child from the tide of hard times ahead. The poet keepswalking and praying for the young child and as he does so he is in a state ofreverie. He feels a kind of gloom and worry about the future of his daughter.He says “As I walk and pray for my younger daughter, I imagine in a state ofexcitement and reverie” that the future years (years of violence and bloodshedand frenzy) have already come and that they seem to come dancing to theaccompaniment of a drum which is beating frantically.These future yearsare seen by Yeats’ imagination as emerging out of the murderous (treacherous)innocence of the sea. In other words, the sea seems to be innocent but iscapable of giving birth to those howling storms which are capable of levelingeverything. In anatmosphereof such violentrevolutionary flux, he wants his daughter to be part of that solid foundationwhich he's come to believe is Ireland's only true hope. In that sense, Yeats'slove for his daughter is inextricably linked with his somewhat idealized loveof country.

2) Give a critical appreciation of the poem“A Prayer for My Daughter.”

Ans: It isimportant to read this poem alongside another famous poem by Yeats, which wasactually written just a few months before this poem, "TheSecond Coming."In this earlier work, Yeats sets out his prophecy of doom and gloom,anticipating the "Mere anarchy" and "blood-dimmed tide"that was set loose on the world due to political changes such as the RussianRevolution and the rise of fascism. Many critics view "APrayer for My Daughter"as being a discussion of how to live and transcend such disturbing events. Thepoem begins with an account of the speaker praying for his daughter in themidst of a "howling" storm because of a "great gloom" thatdominates his mind. Having effectively prophesied a massive upheaval in theworld order, now that he has a daughter, Yeats is concerned about the kind ofworld that she will grow up in. Note how the violence of nature finds aparallel in the violence that is to come as the speaker in the second stanzaimagines the future years "Dancing to a frenzied drum" as the stormrages outside. He prays that his daughter will develop the kind ofcharacteristics that the women he loved did not possess. His former lover, MaudGonne, was beautiful and aware of it and also fired by nationalistic fervor.Yeats prays that his daughter, by contrast, will be given beauty, but not toomuch, because too much beauty can lead to vanity and an inability to relate toothers. He wishes her to learn "courtesy" and hopes that she can havea life marked by stability and security, becoming a "flourishing hiddentree." In an uncertain world with anuncertain future, therefore, Yeats seems to argue that the disturbing changesin the world can be overcome through a life lived focusing on traditionalvalues and the importance of human kindness.

3) Explain the reasons of worry about thefuture of his daughter.

Ans: Yeats isworried that his daughter will grow to adulthood in a world where the oldstandards the standards of the Anglo-Irish gentry that Yeats so deeply veneratesare in terminal decline. That is why he seeks to protect his daughter from thedemocratization of society and its values by ensuring that she will behaveherself in a manner appropriate of a lady of her class. In practical terms,this means not behaving like Maude Gonne, Yeats' close friend, who, accordingto him, sullied her breeding by engaging in radical political activity. This isnot to say that Yeats wants his daughter to become a woman without opinion sheexplicitly states that she should be "chiefly learned." It's justthat he's worried that she might turn out like Maude Gonne and display a kindof intellectual hatred for others and their opinions, which is not becoming fora lady, especially not one from the Anglo-Irish gentry. As an intelligent,educated woman, Yeast’s daughter will have opinions, but she won't beopinionated. In the final stanza, Yeats expresses his wish that his daughterwill be whisked away by her future bridegroom to a place the kind of statelyhome associated with the Protestant Ascendancy where custom, ceremony, andinnocence are the norm. Yeats clearly hopes that by entering such a domesticarrangement, his daughter will be protected from the storms of social changethat rage outside.

4) Justify the title of the poem “A Prayerfor My Daughter.”

Ans: The poem‘A Prayer for myDaughter’portrays the theme of love and anxiety of a father,who has been blessed with a daughter. It also presents the poet’s hopes for hisdaughter and his expectation of her becoming a very beautiful woman, blessedwith the attributes of a virtuous soul. The setting of the poem is uncertainfor the poem is conceived in the mind of the poet. Thespeakeris the poet himselftalking to his daughter. The poem is conversational and didactic intonewith varying emotions of gloom, uncertainty,hope, and fear. “A Prayer for My Daughter” is concerned with surviving thechaos of the modern world the separation of reason from passion, or thesurrender of reason to one’s own violence or the anarchy of the external world.Yeats thus far in his career hadcelebrated the mighty Irish heroes of both legend and the historical past andpresents those courageous men and women who sacrificed themselves for theirideals. Now, however, the poet expresses certain ambivalence toward thoseheroes. He understands that in the necessary sacrifice for a cause, one maysurrender “heart”. In fact, any single-minded commitment to political, social,or intellectual causes, even to beauty may become obsessive and negate one’smore important personal and humane concerns. “A Prayer for My Daughter”proposes the means of rescuing the self, heart, and soul true beauty from aworld of growing disorder and increasing human misery.
