The Splendour Falls on Castle Walls

The Splendour Falls on Castle Walls

by Alfred Lord Tennyson

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

(3) Base Camp

When you get past the difficult first line (see "What's Up with the Title"), there aren't that many tough words to trip up even a novice Shmooper. Most of the vocabulary here is relatively straightforward. But there's still plenty of figurative language and poetic devices here, so be sure to check the "Form and Meter" and "Symbols" sections!
