Abstract

Each person is born into this world with dignity and regards himself as an individual. Inspecting man-woman relationships in the present scenario Imtiaz Dharker’s poem ‘Battle Line’ builds a situation depicting man-woman conflicts. Having both literal and metaphorical connotations, it expresses the pain of separation after being together where an unseen barbed wire comes across the bed room that obstructs the once blissful voyage of love, making it a battle field where one is stripped off her dignity. It is taken from the collection Purdah which is the symbol of alienation and isolation functioning as a wall between the woman and the world. Her humanistic and feministic concerns silently give the message to regenerate and rejuvenate female psyche and her boisterous explosion with her anguish and agony, sympathy and protest has broadened the thematic concerns of Indian English Poetry. Here the spiritual manifestation of passion is acting as a catalyst in the celebration of sexuality to discover the essence of human nature. The present paper is an attempt to analyze the practical possibilities of ‘Battle Line’ in a spiritual and philosophical vision.
