Lochinvar Analysis



Author: Poetry of Sir Walter Scott Type: Poetry Views: 1257





O young Lochinvar is come out of the west,

Through all the wide Border his steed was the best;

And save his good broadsword he weapons had none,

He rode all unarm'd, and he rode all alone.

So faithful in love, and so dauntless in war,

There never was knight like the young Lochinvar.

He staid not for brake, and he stopp'd not for stone,

He swam the Eske river where ford there was none;

But ere he alighted at Netherby gate,

The bride had consented, the gallant came late:

For a laggard in love, and a dastard in war,

Was to wed the fair Ellen of brave Lochinvar.



So boldly he enter'd the Netherby Hall,

Among bride's-men, and kinsmen, and brothers and all:

Then spoke the bride's father, his hand on his sword,

(For the poor craven bridegroom said never a word,)

"O come ye in peace here, or come ye in war,

Or to dance at our bridal, young Lord Lochinvar?"



"I long woo'd your daughter, my suit you denied; --

Love swells like the Solway, but ebbs like its tide --

And now I am come, with this lost love of mine,

To lead but one measure, drink one cup of wine.

There are maidens in Scotland more lovely by far,

That would gladly be bride to the young Lochinvar."



The bride kiss'd the goblet: the knight took it up,

He quaff'd off the wine, and he threw down the cup.

She look'd down to blush, and she look'd up to sigh,

With a smile on her lips and a tear in her eye.

He took her soft hand, ere her mother could bar, --

"Now tread we a measure!" said young Lochinvar.



So stately his form, and so lovely her face,

That never a hall such a gailiard did grace;

While her mother did fret, and her father did fume

And the bridegroom stood dangling his bonnet and plume;

And the bride-maidens whisper'd, "'twere better by far

To have match'd our fair cousin with young Lochinvar."



One touch to her hand, and one word in her ear,

When they reach'd the hall-door, and the charger stood near;

So light to the croupe the fair lady he swung,

So light to the saddle before her he sprung!

"She is won! we are gone, over bank, bush, and scaur;

They'll have fleet steeds that follow," quoth young Lochinvar.



There was mounting 'mong Graemes of the Netherby clan;

Forsters, Fenwicks, and Musgraves, they rode and they ran:

There was racing and chasing on Cannobie Lee,

But the lost bride of Netherby ne'er did they see.

So daring in love, and so dauntless in war,

Have ye e'er heard of gallant like young Lochinvar?

.: :.

The poem LOCHINVAR is an interesting study in human relationship and newer struggle active and passive characters.
Those who are active are ready to battle and those who are passive are intellectual.
Lochinvar is the main character who is active and dominant.
The poem has a happy ending and the poem is interesting because while there is a challenge there is no battle.

I think that the poem Lochinvar is very much based on a contrast between the bridegroom and lochinvar himself. I personally think that lochinvar is a couragous, determined and affectionate leader.

.: :.

look not thou on beauty\'s charming;
Sit thou still when kings are arming;
Taste not when the wine-cup glistens;
Speak not when the people listens;
Stop thine ear against the singer;
From the red gold keep thy finger;
Vacant heart and hand and eye,
Easy live and quiet die.

This poem is about clan rivalry and honour killing between clan where the father of the bride wants to marry
her in their own cast where as the young Lochinvar wanted to marry her.
The bride was to be married to another coward groom.The groom was so coward that when brave Lochinvar entered the hall, his father had to oppose Lochinvar.
In the end the Lochinvar had taken the bride with him on the steed.
Lochinvar was dauntless in war and fathful in love, he was a brave as well as a bold person.
the poem had a happy ending in the end.
ITS A REALLY NICE POEM.
