  6. QUERSTIONS 1. Vocab: bourne (13). 2. what two sets of figures does Tennyson use for approaching death? What is the precise moment of death in each set? 3. in troubled weather the wind and waves above the sandbar across a harbor’s mouth make a moaning sound. What metaphorical meaning has the “moaning of the bar” here (3)? For what kind of death is the speaker wishing? Why does he want “no sadness of farewell” (11)? 4. What is “that which drew from out the boundless deep” (7)? What is “the boundless deep?” To what is it opposed in the poem? Why is “Pilot” (15) capitalized? “CROSSING THE BAR”

  7. QUESTIONS 1. Is the simple superstition referred to in this poem opposed to, or identified with, religious faith? With what implications for the meaning of the poem? 2. What are “these years” (10) and how do they contrast with the years of the poet’s boyhood? What event in intellectual history between 1840 and 1915 (the date Hardy composed this poem) was most responsible for the change? 3. Both “Crossing the Bar” and “The Oxen” in their last lines use a form of the verb hope. By fully discussing tone, establish the precise meaning of hope in each poem. What degree of expectation does it imply? How should the word be handled in reading Tennyson’s poem aloud? Enter “the oxen”
