My Native Land Analysis

Author: Poetry of Sir Walter Scott Type: Poetry Views: 813

Breathes there the man, with soul so dead,

Who never to himself hath said,

This is my own, my native land!

Whose heart hath ne'er within him burn'd,

As home his footsteps he hath turn'd

From wandering on a foreign strand!

If such there breathe, go, mark him well;

For him no Minstrel raptures swell;

High though his titles, proud his name,

Boundless his wealth as wish can claim;

Despite those titles, power, and pelf,

The wretch, concentred all in self,

Living, shall forfeit fair renown,

And, doubly dying, shall go down

To the vile dust, from whence he sprung,

Unwept, unhonour'd, and unsung.

Patriotism is a powerful, innate force within most of us and Walter Scott was surely one of the great patriots of 19th century Scotland. My Native Land is an outburst of contempt for anyone lacking a deep love of their native country. Scott can only imagine such a person to be a self-important, vile wretch with ‘soul so dead’ (can there be degrees of deadness?) that there is no end for him more deserving than to die anonymously, ‘unwept, unhonour’d and unsung’.
