So We'll Go No More a Roving

So We'll Go No More a Roving

by George Gordon, Lord Byron

So We'll Go No More a Roving Questions

Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.

  1. Is the speaker talking to somebody? Or is he just talking about himself? Why do you think so? 
  2. Why do you think this poem is so wildly popular (it's always anthologized)?
  3. Is this supposed to be a romantic poem? What's with the word "loving"?
  4. Why do you think Byron's so worried about death and aging at the very young age of 29 when he wrote this poem?
  5. What is the effect of the poem's three stanza structure on the way we read the poem?
