lord ullin's daughter is a poem written by thomas campbell.this
poem narrates a sad event of the daughter of a nobleman of scotland.it was a
stormy night.a chieftain of highland clan of ulva isle who was eloping with the
daughter of lord ullin promised to pay the boatman a silver pound if he could
row them over the ferry.it was their third day of their flight and he knew that
the lord would kill him if he could find them.the boatman assured them that he
would do his best for the beautiful lady and row them over the ferry.but the
storm grew more and more violent and it was a severely dreary night.armed
horsemen have heard to have come very close and the lady grew dismayed.the
stormy land was left behind but the torrential sea was ahead.the situation was
beyond human control,so the boat capsized.when the father reached the shore ,
it was too late, the girl could only stretch her hand for aid, the other
clasped round her lover.the father shouted out for promises to forgive her but
the wild water gushed out over her and the father was left wailing.
From this passage we can see that Lord Ullin was a very stubborn person.He was a very good ruler and person by heart but did not understand the love of the chieftain and her daughter.this was his biggest mistake which at last resulted in the death of his daughter and the chieftain.
