    First few lines from Shelley's Ode to the West Wind.

    "driven like ghosts from an enchanter fleeing" - "ը θȡ, Ţɡ¡" Ȣ.

    Ц - pale colour. : .
    hectic red . - bed. A dark winter means a very cold winter. I have translated this as "Ǣ". Ǣ.


    O wild west wind, thou breath of Autumn's being
    Thou from whose unseen presence the leaves dead
    Are driven, like ghosts from an enchanter fleeing!
    Yellow and black and pale and hectic red
    Pestilence stricken multitude O thou
    Who chariotest to their dark wintry bed! (Percy Shelley)

    Let's see how Shelley has composed his (this part of ) poem in English:

    "The winged seeds
    where they lie cold and low
    Each like a corpse
    within its grave, until
    Thine same sister
    of the Spring shall blow"


    = ̸. ( ¢ ). low - .

    'Winged seeds' is a great (cliche?) poem by Shelly. Haven't read it before. Somehow felt the beauty didn't come out quite in the tamil version, even though it's a nice attempt.

    means ź?

    Grateful for comments

    'Winged seeds' is a great (cliche?) poem by Shelly.
    He and other Nature Poets often dwelt on the rigours of winter and cold and how these affect seeds, birds and trees. It may be correct to term this treatment as cliche. It is a new theme for Tamil poem. This gives rise to difficulties of "description" which must be overcome in translation. Our words for "ice", "snow" "freeze" are by no means simple or traditional: they contain more than a single syllable each and are not in the zone of natural choice of Tamil poetic diction.

    Somehow felt the beauty didn't come out quite in the tamil version,
    I must agree on this observation. To begin with, for the sake of quick versification in the viruththam variety, I have regrettably failed to keep to the original flow by Shelley. For example, Shelley said: "winged seeds" but I have seeds at one place and wings at the end of the stanza. He started with "winged seeds" whereas I commenced with corpse in the grave. There are other points too.
    Your comments will sure help me to bring out the "original" more faithfully in the translation in future. Thanx sir RR.




    means ź?

    Yes. ya > sa interchangeability. I have written something about this word in the Ta. Lit. Section - Is Ta derived from Sanskrit.

    By 'cliche', I meant my observation about the greatness of shelly as trite.
