- An Analysis of Dover Beach Dover Beach intrigued me as soon as I read the title.

He take the soft calming words of Arnold and gives them a harsh New Jersey accent. His representation of an educated woman sets the reader up to think that the woman will not sit quietly and be told what to do by her husband.... [tags: Dover Beach]
