Abstract: Metaphor in poetic texts has been discussed from different perspectives. The still dominant view of metaphor is that it is an ornament used by the poet. In cognitive linguistics, metaphor is not only confined to literary studies but it has become a commonality among all the sciences that address issues related to language and mind and it demonstrates the various ways we perceive our experiences. The present study is an investigation of love metaphors in Hiren Bhattacharya’s poetry by drawing upon the conceptual metaphor theory (CMT). Studying romantic love metaphors via conceptual metaphor theory will provide a clearer perception of the otherwise ambiguous romantic love concepts and can provide an exact explanation of the mapping of an abstract concept based on a concrete one. The present paper will focus on Hiren Bhattacharya, a contemporary Assamese poet, writer and politician, renowned for his composition of several acclaimed Assamese modern poems. The Lakoffian argument that there is no way to produce "pure" language even in metaphysical literature is proven when the cognitive approach is applied to metaphysical concepts. According to this idea, the relationships that exist between the body, brain, and interactions with the environment are the foundations of the unconscious mind, and this type of mundane mind is incapable of producing pure metaphysical experiences. In furtherance to the aforesaid idea, cognitive viewpoint of language changes the notion of ‘novelty’ in poetic texts and argues that poetic innovations are just ‘extending forms’ of conventional metaphors. This paper concludes that Hiren Bhattacharya’s romantic poems benefit from conventional cognitive metaphors about love and the complex relations between love metaphors are indeed the innovations that Bhattacharya had applied.
