But there are unsettling notes from the very start –the storm is strangely personified in terms of sullenness,...

One thing is clear in both poems however; the speaker or narrator in each poem has the power over the subject of the poem. In Tennyson, the speaker merely commentates on the event itself with hindsight and takes it upon himself to decide what honour is and distributes it to the soldiers. Kipling’s speaker, in similar fashion, dictates what honour is...
