Analysis of 'The Highwayman'.
This poem is called 'The Highwayman' and was written by Alfred Noyes. This particular poem is superb. This is because it engulfs lots of poetic skills and gets the reader to go through many emotions. 'The Highwayman' is a narrative poem because it is read by the reader and instead of one of the characters. I think this gives the characters an even spread throughout the poem. I would of thought that this poem is set in the 16th-17th centuries. I think this because the highwaymen were about in these centuries.
The start of the poem consists of three metaphors. A metaphor is when two words are compared to one another without using the words as, like. The three metaphors are
'The wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees'
'The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas'
'The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the p cloudy urple moor'
I love these metaphors as they are so true.My favourite is 'The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas' as I have thought that in my head before when I have seen the moon.
