Transcript of When we Two parted

George Byron, also known as Lord Byron, was born in London in 1788. Byron suffered his whole life because he was born with a clubbed foot. His Father, John Byron who married Catherine Gordon for her money, fled to France after wasting it and died in 1791. George Gordon Noel Byron Conclusion "The dew of the morning
Sunk chill on my brow
It felt like the warning
Of what I feel now." When we Two parted Imagery Sounds "They name thee before me,
A knell to mine ear" "They name thee before me,
A knell to mine ear
A shudder comes o'er me
Why wert thou so dear?" Diction Allusions "Pale grew thy cheek and cold,
Colder thy kiss" Theme This fits romanticism because the theme of this poem was forbidden love because they were two lovers who were in love but were just not meant to be together. When we two parted
In silence and tears,
Half broken-hearted
To sever for years,
Pale grew thy cheek and cold,
Colder thy kiss;
Truly that hour foretold
Sorrow to this.

The dew of the morning
Sunk chill on my brow—
It felt like the warning
Of what I feel now.
Thy vows are all broken,
And light is thy fame:
I hear thy name spoken,
And share in its shame.

They name thee before me,
A knell to mine ear;
A shudder comes o'er me—
Why wert thou so dear?
They know not I knew thee,
Who knew thee too well:
Long, long shall I rue thee,
Too deeply to tell.

In secret we met—
In silence I grieve,
That thy heart could forget,
Thy spirit deceive.
If I should meet thee
After long years,
How should I greet thee?
With silence and tears. My Observations/Reactions In order to write this poem, Byron must have felt so alone his whole life because i noticed how he didn't really have at least one person by his side at all times. Either everyone kept leaving him, or he would leave them. This Poem exemplifies Romanticism because... He was in love but ended up getting hurt by the woman he loved and felt horrible after the seperation and he wished he had never loved her. By: Marielena Solano
Period 2 Later on he attended Harrow School from 1801 to 1805 and then moved on to get his master's degree at Trinity College in Cambridge University until 1808 When he was only 14 years old he published his first poem Fugitive Pieces, which he paid himself to have printed. At age 21 he left England and left to a journey through Greece and Turkey and recorded his experiences through his poems such as Childe Harold Pillgrimage. When he returned to England in 1811, he had many affairs with ladies such as Lady Caroline Lamb, who described him as mad, bad, and dangerous to know. In 1815, he married Annabella Millbank, and had a daughter, Augusta Ada, but they both left him in 1816 because of Byron's abbusive actions toward his wife. After they left him, he left to Europe and met Percy Bysshe Shelley and his wife Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley and became very close friends with them. After leaving Italy for Greece to join a group of insurgents fighting for independence from the Turks in 1823, he caught a fever the next year and died from it on April 19 at the age of 36. A.K.A.
