the poet has realistically drawn a parralism between the journey of the brook with the life of a man... the poet says as in the childhood the a child is very agile, energetic and lively , like that only the brook in the begining stage of its life is very powerful, enhacing and it keeps on flowing with a great rush and enthusiasm through out its life .it falls from great heights and menders around the wavy path, and when it approches on plain it becomes very slow and continues to flow eternally .like the brook a man toward the end of his life he becomes slow in his moves and ultimately meets the horns of death and olso emerges with its final destination but it never ends to flow
 

Brook is poem written by Alfred Lord Tennyson.

In this poem, the brook refers itself to a living being.This is called personification.The word 'I' explains it.

The brook suddenly emerges from a place frequently visited by coots and herons.It falls down  a velley making a quarelling noise.The poet uses numerical references like 'thirty hills', 'twenty thorpes' & ' half hundred bridges'.The brook joins the brimming river at Philip's farm. The line'For men may come and men may go, but I go on forever' explains the brook is immortal as it goes on forever.Also this line is a refrain(A sentence that is repeated again and again in a poem).

The poet uses human comparions using words like-'chatter', 'bicker', 'trebles' etc.

The brook makes a chattering noise as it passes over stony ways and in little sharps and trebles it bubbles into eddying bays.The brook's bank passes through many curves and fields along weeds and other plants.The river keeps chattering in order to meet the brimming river.It carries many thigs like blossoms, lusty trouts, grayling, foamy flakes, forget me nots etc..

The brooks gently crosses the lawn and grassy plots and slides by hazel covers.It moves by the sweet forget me nots thet grow for happy lovers (The flowers are so lovely that people give it to their lovers so that they don't forget each other).

The river does many actions. It slips, slides, glooms,  glances. The swallows ( a kind of bird) skim through the top of the brook and the water makes the sunbeam dance by acting as nets against it's sandy shallows.

While passing through throny bushes,the brooks murmers(human comparison-the brook complains) about passing the scary throny poisonous bushes.But when it surfaces the shingly bars (pebbles), it loiters(human comparison- it stays there for some time) round the cresses.

And finally the brook winds around the curver to flow into the brimming river. Still it remaind immortal after passing through thorns and venmous bushes.

This poem uses many poetic devices like allitration(eg.fairy forland , golden gravel etc..).

The poem also uses refrains(For men may come and men may go, but I go on forever).

Personification is also used as explained before.

As the poet imagination the brook is compared with the life of a man. Through this poem poet want to say that the life of a man is mortal and the life of  nature is immortal

 
THE brook is an example of tennyson's
 
'The Brook ' is a composition of Lord Alfred Tennyson whose fame rested on his perfect control of sound, the synthesis of sound and meaning, the ~union~ of pictorial and musical elements. The poem is about a brook which appears to be a symbol of life, which becomes the central theme of the composition. A dictionary would define a brook as a stream or a small river. The brook starts from the mountains most of the times. Suddenly after originating from there the brook rushes down. The later flow of the brook sees it sparkling bright because of the sun rays. The brook flows through a ground which have grass and flowerless plants. 'Bicker ' means to run rapidly or rush in a hurry. Thus, here the brook is said to flow down a valley making noisy sounds. This noisy movement full of vigour shows its hurry to reach its destination similar to man in his youth who is very energetic, lively, enthusiastic and full of vigour. The poet has shown the swift flow of the brook by using the words like 'hurry down ', 'slip between ', etc. The brook flows down many hills, many being emphasized by the word 'thirty ' and narrow hilltops. The brook flows down past many villages, where the 'thorp ', an old English word has been used for 'village '. Here, again, the poet tries to make the line creative by using 'Twenty '-not literally 'Twenty villages ' and a little town as well. It flows through fields, uncultivated lands, and lands with different stems, leaves and flowers of various colours of pink, purple and white. In this early phase of life, the brook has a very fast motion and it overcomes all the obstacles, stones and pebbles in its way. This nature of the brook can be compared to man in his youth when he is enthusiastic and is ready to face all the challenges that come in his way. After flowing by Philip 's farm, the brook joins an overflowing river. Here, the brook significantly describes the life cycle of human being. It exemplifies the fact that men have a short lifespan and their cycle of arrival and departure goes on forever. However, in this aspect, the brook is different from man, having an immortal life because of which it goes on 'forever '. The noise made by the quick flow of the brook is what makes it ‘chatter’. While the river wanders in a wild and natural course, it makes a natural swirling, chattering noise. Brimming here means to be abundantly filled with water, to the point of overflow. The poet has used ‘brimming’ to indicate the amount of water in the river which the brook joins finally. It creates a picture of immense volume and abundance. The brook flows in curves because at one point the path curves. The meandering flow makes it wear away. 'Slip ', 'slide ', 'gloom ', 'glance ', 'steal ', 'slide ', 'move ', etc. are words which signify the various movements of the brook. The parallelism between the brook 's journey and a man 's life is evident in the lines where the brook is shown to take a lot of things along with it like blossoms, silt, gravel and fish which is quite similar to the way man meets and accompanies people and moves forward in life with the people he meets, in the journey of his life. The last two lines very well explains the central theme of the poem, that is, the fact that human life is mortal while the beauty of nature remains eternal. The brook says in these lines that human lives come to an end and another generation begins. However, the flow of the brook is continuous and goes on forever. The immortality and permanence of the brook has been compared and contrasted with human life, which is mortal and finishes after a certain span of time.
