Critical Analysis of "The Eagle" by Lord Tennyson

     The name of the poem I am writing about is called “The Eagle” by Alfred,
Lord Tennyson. It is in figurative language form.

     The poem is divided into 2 Stanza's with 3 lines each. And there are an
average of 9 feet a line. The rhyme scheme is every last word in each stanza

     Some of the imagery is with sight and sound. For sight they are “Close
to the sun”, “Azure world”, azure mean the blue color in a clear daytime sky. “
Wrinkled sea beneath”, and “mountain walls”. The only one that was imagery of
sight & sound was “like a thunderbolt he falls”.

     The figures of speech are “wrinkled sea”, which means the waves in the
ocean. And one simile is “like a thunderbolt he falls”, it is saying how fast a
eagle dives.

     The poems theme is how an eagle can fly so high and dive so fast. And
how free an eagle is. I thought that this was a nice poem. I like the way he
uses the words. I think the rhyming scheme he used was appropriate, where every
last word rhymed.
