This paper takes a unique approach to the profound metaphors of the sea, fish, and fishermen in Sarojini Naidu’s poem ‘Coromandel Fishers’, which she masterfully uses to symbolise the Indian Independence movement. By meticulously dissecting the figurative language interwoven throughout the poem, the researcher unveils the poet’s spiritual and philosophical ideals, artfully blended with metaphor and myth. The analysis draws a compelling parallel between the fisherfolk and the art of fishing to the freedom fighters and the broader freedom movement, offering a fresh and thought provoking perspective that will stimulate new insights into India’s struggle for independence.
