In 1940s the publication of "JAYANTI" magazine, introduced the trend of symbolist poetry in Assamese literature. Modernism found a remarkable place as a replacement of Romanticism. Social consciousness, Sex, Psychology, and Revolutionary tone were the new themes of Assamese poetry. Assamese poets realized that Symbolism is the key to Modernism. In 1940s Amulya Barua, Bhabananda Dutta, Hem Barua and Ajit Barua were the chief exponents of Assamese Symbolist poetry. ? Public symbol? and ? Private Symbol? are the assets of modern Assamese poetry. But we must say Assamese poets were greatly influenced by Eliotian symbolism e. g. "IYAT NODI ASI" by Nabakanta Barua.
