Transcript of prezzitation

The Eagle Alfred Tennyson has set this poem out into two stanzas, the first one is to show how the eagle is waiting stealthily for a glimpse of food. the second stanza is focused on the eagles world and nature, it is telling us how the eagle is getting prepared to soar in the sky possibly to catch his prey. In stanza one i know the eagle is waiting because the poet says "he stands" i think the eagle is waiting for something to happen on a azure day. i also know the eagle is getting prepared in stanza two because the quote "he watches from his mountain walls" suggests he is preparing to swoop. it makes the reader fells sorry the eagle as it has no-one to be with however i think it is trying to say an emotional message!!
