The companion essay on "The Oxen" in the previous issue (Hardy Review XVIII-ii) had sought to respect the poem's important critical, biographical and literary historical contexts while bringing out how much more there might be to say about a poem whose internal dynamics of skepticism and vision often inspire commentary rather than exploration or critical reading. This essay offers a close study of the workings of metre in "The Oxen" to argue that the poem's meaning and effects are shaped extensively by an internal drama of voice and intonation.
