How is the theme of loss of faith shown in Dover Beach?

1 Answer

  1. The poet laments the loss of faith in religion and in mankind. It is reflected through the sea’s “eternal note of sadness.” The poet evokes the allusion of Sophocles as he, too, like the speaker has heard the sound of human misery. The rhythmic sound of waves remind the speaker of the ebbing away of faith in people and that they no longer seek the comfort of church or God.
