The poem starts as a swift, loud, stream. The brook travels trough 20 or so villages, 50 bridges and 30 hills till it reaches the river at Phillip's farm The brook carries objects such as fish, foamy bubbles, and flowers which represent a person carrying their family, friends, and other important objects This basically states that man is mortal while nature is immortal. A human can only live for so long before that person dies but the brook and nature is never-ending and will out live humans. The brook will flow long after a person is dead. This is basically what the poem represents.Slide 5: Alfred Lord TennysonSlide 6: Alfred Tennyson, 1st Baron Tennyson , FRS (6 August 1809 – 6 October 1892) was Poet Laureate of the United Kingdom during much of Queen Victoria's reign and remains one of the most popular poets in the English language. Tennyson excelled at penning short lyrics, " In the valley of Cauteretz ", " Break, Break, Break ", " The Charge of the Light Brigade ", " Tears, Idle Tears " and " Crossing the Bar ". Much of his verse was based on classical mythological themes, such as Ulysses , although In Memoriam A.H.H. was written to commemorate his best friend Arthur Hallam , a fellow poet and fellow student at Trinity College, Cambridge , who was engaged to Tennyson's sister, but died from a cerebral hemorrhage before they were married. Tennyson also wrote some notable blank verse including Idylls of the King , Ulysses , and Tithonus . During his career, Tennyson attempted drama , but his plays enjoyed little success.Slide 7: . Tennyson wrote a number of phrases that have become commonplaces of the English language, including: "Nature, red in tooth and claw", "'Tis better to have loved and lost / Than never to have loved at all", "Theirs not to reason why, / Theirs but to do and die", "My strength is as the strength of ten, / Because my heart is pure", "Knowledge comes, but Wisdom lingers", and "The old order changeth, yielding place to new". He is the ninth most frequently quoted writer in The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations after Shakespeare and othersSummary: 'The Brook' is an example of Tennyson's exquisite versification. He had a rare capacity for creating music out of simple words. Tennyson makes the brook narrate its history- the history of its origin, its meandering and uneven journey through forest and hills and open spaces until it joins the 'brimming river'. The Brook originates from a source on the highlands filled with mountain forest cover, where the wild birds of coot and hern are found in plenty. Its rushing waters touches all the ferns that grow on its banks till it reaches the open valley. In its initial rushing journey, the brook passes through the slopes of thirty hills and flows beneath more than four dozen bridges. Then it touches twenty different villages before reaching a little town. SummarySlide 9: Before joining the main river, the brook passes by Phillip's farm. As it comes rushing down the hills, its waters produces different musical notes as it dashes against the stony pebbles. The brook makes its presence felt when it passes through the different fields of uncultivated lands and many front lying promontory lands where the weeping willows grow. It winds about with immense power and its cool pleasant waters brings all kinds of fresh water fish to a lively activity. The brook forms the foamy flake which is accumulatd at the shores where gravels gather in plenty, as it continues to travel down the hills. Sometimes it overflows and incur upon the grassy plots in the lawns. It even overflows to the gounds of Hazel plants and touches the sweet forget-me-nots. All the different sounds and movements that a stream makes as it flows are charmingly conveyed through the words used with an exquisite delicacies of feeling. The trees on the banks, the fish playing about, the blossoms floating on the water, the stretches of darkness and light are vividly reflected on the flowing verse. Above all, the spirit of joy and freedom comes through eloquently.Slide 10: Each morning when the sun rises, the rays and the beams hit the waters and brightly reflect the shiny dance of the active movement of the brook on the sandy banks. When evening sets in and total darkness covers the surroundings of the countryside, the flow of the brook continues to murmur under the light of the moon and stars. The effects of the brook on the shores in the daytime is as much as in the night. Tennyson significantly relates the brook to human life to the sad reflection that man's life is impermanent compared with the relative permanence of a river (men may come and men may go, But I go on forever).Slide 11: The brook by Alfred lord tennysonSlide 12: I come from haunts of coot and herns ; I make a sudden sally And sparkle out among the fern To bicker down a valleySlide 13: By thirty hills I hurry down, Or slip between the ridges, By twenty thropes , a little town, And half a hundred bridges .Slide 14: Till last by Philip's farm I flow To join the brimming river, For men may come and men may go But I go on for ever.Slide 15: I chatter over stone ways, In little sharps and trebles, I bubble into eddying bays, I babble on the pebbles.Slide 16: With many curves my blanks I fret By many a field and fallow, And many a fairy foreland set With willow –weed and mallow.Slide 17: I chatter , chatter, as I flow To join the brimming river, For men may come and men may go, But I go on for ever.Slide 18: I wind about, in and out , With here a blossom sailing, And here and there a lusty trout, And here and there a grayling,Slide 19: And here and there a foamy flake Upon me, as I travel With many silvery waterbreak Above the golden gravel,Slide 20: And draw them all along , and flow To join the brimming river For men may come and men may go But I go on for ever.Slide 21: I steal by lawns and grassy plots, I slide by hazel covers I move the sweet forget-me-nots That grow for happy lovers.Slide 22: I slip, I slide, I gloom , I glance, Among my skimming shallows I make the netted sunbeam dance Against my sandy shallows.Slide 23: I murmur under moon and stars In bramly wilderness; I linger in my shingly bars; I loiter round my cresses;Figure Of Speech: Figure Of Speech Alliteration - 1.
