  2. MY POEM Break, break, break, A On thy cold gray stones, O sea! B And I would that my tongue could utter C The thoughts that arise in me B O, well for the fisherman’s boy, D That he shouts with his sister at play! E O, well for the sailor lad, F That he sings in his boat on the bay! E And the stately ships go on G To their haven under the hill; H But O for the touch of a vanish’d hand, I And the sound of the voice that is still! H Break, break, break J At the foot of thy crags, O Sea ! K But the tender grace of the day that is dead L Will never come back to me K

  7. Biographical information • Alfred, lord Tennyson was born August 6, 1809 and died October 6 ,1892 and had a noble and royal ancestry. • His first publication was “Poems by two brothers” and was published in 1827. • One of his masterpieces was “In Memoriam A.H.H” which was devoted to his late friend, Arthur Hallam and inspired Tennyson to write many other successful poems like “In the Valley of Cauteretz” and “Break , Break , Break” . • Tennyson was the first to be raised to a British peerage for his writing and only took it to secure a future for his son, Hallam. • His second publication was in 1833 and had met heavy criticism, this discouraged Tennyson so much that he did not publish again for ten years. • His third publication was in 1842 and met with great success, he had published two volumes of poems that had one having poems that were already published and the other one made up of almost entirely new poems.

  8. Literal and figurative meaning • The literal meaning of the poem is about the thoughts, feelings, and experiences that the person in the poem has when he is isolated from society and sees the things that remind him of society on a passing ship, and now starts to doubt that he will ever be a part of society again. • The figurative meaning of the poem and what the poet is trying to say, in my opinion, is about even when you escape the clutches of society, you eventually regret it and want to come back, but sometimes there is no going back and you now are isolated from the world and are never to return.

  9. Author's purpose • The author’s purpose for writing the poem is to express the feelings he felt after his friend, Author Hallam, died. Also to tell people about the cheerful fisherman’s child and the Jovial sailor that he saw and how he resented them when he felt he was isolated from society while visiting his friends in Mablethorpe, Lincolnshire. The reason he felt isolated was because he had just found out that his other friends, the Hallams, were with  both William Wordsworth and Samuel Roger.

  10. Poem’s speaker and structure • the speaker of the poem is someone who express their feelings in a sort of dark way and likes to repeat words and phrases in order to create a kind of rhythm so that it keeps the reader interested and curious enough to keeping reading. • The structure of the poem is a lyric poem, which is where the poet makes the poem have a songlike quality to it by adding a rhythm. This is where there is a rhyme between two lines most of the time throughout the poem. Also, a lyric poem is where the speaker is expressing his feelings and thoughts and try's to convey a single strong emotion.
