Winter Swans, Webster was also said to be involved in an affair with the Duke of Farmer s Bride. Wellington Byron was a leading Romantic poet Porphyria s Lover. The title refers to the painful moment the relationship ended and speaks directly to the woman to. confess the poet s reactions and response to that day. Stanza 1 The silence suggests many feelings unspoken either because this is not a mutual parting. or because there is a forbidden secret aspect to the relationship This is further indicated by the. poet being half broken hearted and that he will be scarred by the experience for years sever. Stanza 1 The woman is described as becoming cold and emotionless all warmth they may have. shared is now dying, Stanza 2 Pathetic fallacy used to further the cold atmosphere dew of the morning. Stanza 2 The woman s reputation is now light possibly as the result of another or even this. scandal and the poet due to his secret involvement with the woman shares in the shame The. unnamed people of the society of the time are gossiping and criticising the woman. Stanza 3 The pressure of public opinion and reputation continues into stanza 3 The rhetorical. question suggests that the poet is emotionally traumatized by the affair even though he has escaped. with his anonymity intact, Stanza 4 The tone begins to turn to anger and bitterness as the poet acknowledges he is left with. deep emotional wounds long shall I rue thee, Stanza 5 The poet confesses the secret nature of the relationship and the tone change continues as.

The structure of the poem is regular in rhythm and rhyme and highly. controlled It signifies a sense of deep reflection about the day and the. relationship as though the poet has considered it very carefully. Although the poem moves between time frames past present and. future the repetition of silence and tears at both the beginning and. end creates a circular structure This shows that poet is unable to move. forward and is stuck with his despair, The poem uses a semantic field of death The poem is riddled with. references to death and loss Pale sever knell grieve etc The death of. the relationship is also a death of his happiness emotion and future. He is mourning the loss of his love, The poem uses language to foreshadow the inevitable end of the. relationship Part of the poet s bitterness comes from the signs that. surrounded him that the relationship was doomed Foretold warning. knell deceive etc There is anger that he gave so much love and yet he. was ultimately rejected, The poem juxtaposes knowledge and silence secrecy There is a clear. contrast between the knowledge the poet has and the knowledge of. others They know not I knew thee In the same way there is a sharp. contrast between the silence of the couple and the gossiping voices of. others They name thee before me, Grief Lament Confessional Melancholic Notorious Anonymity.

Annotate the poem from memory,When we two parted,In silence and tears. Half broken hearted,To sever for years,Pale grew thy cheek and cold. Colder thy kiss,Truly that hour foretold,Sorrow to this.
The dew of the morning,Sunk chill on my brow,It felt like the warning. Of what I feel now,Thy vows are all broken,And light is thy fame. I hear thy name spoken,And share in its shame,They name thee before me. A knell to mine ear,A shudder comes o er me,Why wert thou so dear. They know not I knew thee,Who knew thee too well,Long long shall I rue thee.

K McCabe 2016 7,NEUTRAL TONES,by Thomas Hardy 1840 1928 THEMES. Thomas Hardy was a Victorian novelist and poet Much of his Pain Loss Death. poetry is autobiographical about his relationships and the failure Bitterness Anger. of his relationships He famously wrote a great deal of his poetry Nature. about his first wife Emma who he became estranged from and COMPARE WITH. mourned her death for the rest of his life Neutral Tones however. Winter Swans, was written about a previous relationship that did not last Hardy When We Two Parted. was influenced by the Romantic poets Farmer s Bride. The title neutral suggests something without warmth cold and emotionless It is the opposite of. Stanza 1 The poem begins by setting the scene with a pathetic fallacy The combination of the. pond winter and white sun create a cold and bleak landscape In addition there is a sense of. everything dying the falling leaves the starving sod natural elements once fertile and alive and. struggling to survive symbolic of the couple s relationship. Stanza 2 She doesn t look at him directly and hold his gaze but instead her eyes rove moving. constantly wandering without fixing on him He imagines that as she focuses on everything but him. she is thinking over tedious riddles of years ago This oxymoron creates rich imagery about the. frustrations that are part of their relationship Tedious suggest dull repetitive and riddles is. something that is a challenging puzzle both fun and infuriating These riddles unresolved. arguments have continued to plague them for years There is no solution. Stanza 3 This stanza starts with another strong contrast this time the juxtaposition of her smile. being the deadest thing This image is further extended with her grin of bitterness What seems to. be most painful for Hardy is that she once did smile with warmth and love at him as it was once. alive enough to have the strength to die This smile that turned to a grin of bitterness should have. been his ominous warning that the relationship was doomed. Stanza 4 This stanza shows a change in his emotion In recalling some of the details of the day the. language has become increasingly powerful and bitter Hardy acknowledges that he felt deceived by. love in particular this relationship The sun has changed from white to God curst indicating that. his feelings are no longer neutral but angry and inflamed. Stanza 4 Wrings with wrong alliteration emphasises his anguish. Stanza 4 The irregular rhythm of the final stanza created by the mix of enjambment and caesura. shows that Hardy begins to be overwhelmed with feelings of anger However as soon as this. appears it quickly dissipates The anger fades using repetition of and Hardy lists the bleak. elements of the scene that day that he associates with the futile and empty relationship Hardy. returns to his melancholic sombre state gazing at the pond returning to the beginning Like Byron. he too is caught in a emotional cycle that he cannot move out of.

but colour also features throughout the poem The colour begins as. white and gray and changes to God Curst suggesting and angry red. inflamed Sun The poem ends with the repetition of the colour gray. showing that he is left again with unresolved emotion. The poem uses a semantic field of death and lifelessness Imagery. suggesting death appears throughout the poem the ground is starving. the leaves are grey and have fallen from the trees the smile is dead etc. The poem uses a series of opposites to present the relationship The. poem is full of juxtaposition and oxymoron Where there should be love. there is coldness where there should be intimacy between them there. is wandering where there should be warmth and genuine emotion. there is a forced grin deception and frustration, Bitter Pathetic Oxymoron Ominous Anguish Dissipates.
