I have recently annotated "Boat Stealing" (page 20 of this PDF) and when looking online, I have found that my interpretation of the poem in some aspects is a bit different to most others. I just want to make sure that my interpretation of this poem is also valid.
Basically, up till line 25, the tone is quite serene (which I agree with) but in addition, I also feel there is a bit of sense of foreboding involved because of a few things. The moon is out, so the events are occurring in the midst of night, which connotes evil. Also, the mountains are described as "hoary" - which means greyish-white - and the colour grey has connotations of a lack of emotion, so therefore this portrays the mountains as ruthless and evil. The "mountain echoes" are also following the poet, therefore hinting at the possibility that something might happen.
Is this interpretation valid?
