"The Eagle" is Alfred, Lord Tennyson's short-but-forceful appreciation of a mighty predator. Marveling at the grandeur of an eagle and at its stunning speed and strength as it swoops on its prey, the poem's speaker has a face-to-face confrontation with the sheer awesome power of nature. "The Eagle" first appeared in the 1851 edition of Tennyson's Poems.
