“Dover Beach” By Matthew Arnold Review

The poem expresses a crisis of faith, with the speaker acknowledging the diminished standing of Christianity, which the speaker sees as being unable to withstand the rising tide of scientific discovery.

The plot in this one is kind of controversial here, but I gotta Gove the author points for some of the things he said in this poem. 

This poem makes some very good points about extremism and faith in god or satan depending on what you believe.

The writing style in this one was kind of weak, it felt like this poem was just a draft which got published by a mistake.

To me this poem felt like melancholic and almost nihilistic for whatever reason.

I give this poem 2 / 5
