Class 10 English For Anne Gregory Summary

Yeats is of the view that most people love others just because they attract them physically. The complexion of the skin and the colour of the hair are more important for us than the ‘real’ worth of a person. We rarely love people ‘for themselves alone’. Even the beautiful Anne Gregory is not liked or loved for her inner beauty or her rare qualities of head and heart, but for her beautiful yellow hair. Shallow minded people adore only physical beauty. We should look for spiritual beauty before falling in love with a lady. Physical beauty is just skin-deep. It is momentary. Unfortunately, most of the people are attracted by the colour of the skin and hair. Only God can love a person for himself alone.

Summary in Hindi

येट्स का मानना ​​है कि ज्यादातर लोग दूसरों से सिर्फ इसलिए प्यार करते हैं क्योंकि वे उन्हें शारीरिक रूप से आकर्षित करते हैं। त्वचा का रंग और बालों का रंग हमारे लिए ‘असली’ मूल्य से अधिक महत्वपूर्ण है a व्यक्ति। हम शायद ही कभी लोगों से ‘अपने लिए’ प्यार करते हैं। सुंदर ऐनी ग्रेगरी भी पसंद नहीं है or उसकी आंतरिक सुंदरता या उसके सिर और हृदय के दुर्लभ गुणों के लिए, लेकिन उसके सुंदर पीले बालों के लिए। मंदबुद्धि लोग केवल शारीरिक सौन्दर्य को ही पसंद करते हैं। हमें गिरने से पहले आध्यात्मिक सुंदरता की तलाश करनी चाहिए एक महिला के प्यार में। शारीरिक सुंदरता सिर्फ त्वचा की गहराई तक होती है। यह क्षणिक है। दुर्भाग्य से, अधिकांश लोग त्वचा और बालों के रंग से आकर्षित होते हैं। केवल ईश्वर ही किसी व्यक्ति को केवल अपने लिए प्रेम कर सकता है।

Long Answer Questions

Question. Do we love people because we like their appearances or we are fascinated by their physical appearances? How does Anne Gregory want to be loved?
Ans. This is the world of pomp and show. Things and people are often liked and loved not because of their merit but because of their external appearances. Anne Gregory’s honey-coloured yellowish hair look like the ramparts of a fort when they fall on her ears. There are many who love Anne Gregory only for her yellow hair. However, Anne doesn’t like to be liked and loved this way. After all, how does the colour matter? She can dye her hair the way she likes. She can dye them brown, black, of carrot’s colour or the way she likes. If her lover likes only for her beautiful hair, she won’t accept him. She should be loved for `herself alone’. But this world doesn’t go by her wish. Only God can love a person for what he is. Human beings will go on being tempted by beautiful yellow hair.

Question. People are not objects. They should be valued for being themselves. What lesson does the poet want to give to the readers through this poem?
Ans. Absolutely true. People are not objects. Appearances may be deceptive. A person should be liked and loved for being himself or ‘herself. Outwardly appearances do tempt and dazzle us. There may be many persons who would love to see Anne’s beautiful hair falling over her ears like the ramparts of a fort. Many would love Anne Gregory for her beautiful yellow hair. It would be difficult to find a real lover who loves Anne for `herself alone’. What is so great about yellow hair? Anne ridicules the idea of being loved for her yellow hair. She can dye her hair the way she likes — brown, black, carrot or yellow. But the irony of this world is that people will go on being tempted and dazzled by glamour, show and outwardly appearances. Only God can love a person for ‘himself or herself’ alone.
