Abstract

In 21st century, Indian English poetry presents vivid images of India considering socio-cultural realities of our time. Dr. Amar Nath Prasad’s poem collection Pebbles on the Seashore also represents this truth. Without love and sense of beauty, human life becomes dry and mechanical. Nature is the great source of love and beauty. Dr. Prasad has considered it as the centre of his poems. Nature- environment is the lifeline for every living but human’s lust for material progress harms nature. Dr. Prasad has highlighted it realistically. Love, nature and nation are very appealingly portrayed in his poems. The first poem of this anthology “The Priest of Nature” has been prescribed in B.A. Part II (Semester III) of Sant Baba Gadge, Amravati University, Maharashtra. A preliminary analytical examination of Amar Nath Prasad's poetry demonstrates his mastery of similes, metaphors, and other literary techniques, all of which he has skillfully and brilliantly employed. His combination of form and emotion is excellent, and it deserves critical acclaim, especially in this empty and constricting period when people feel so alone and alone. The poetry will undoubtedly turn out to be a comfort to the worries, fears, and hardships of contemporary, materialistic man.
