What are the two conflicting desires in the poem Dover Beach?

1 Answer

  1. One conflicting desire in the poem is between faith and despair. The poem marks a distinction between the time when people had faith in religion and over one another and to the present times, where the unforeseeable future leads to the loss of faith in humanity. Another one is between science and religion. Religion seems to be losing in front of scientific advancement and knowledge. People are no longer seeking comfort in the church and in God. Their faith is slowly ebbing away.
