Question and answer
She Walks in Beauty. What does the speaker find so beautiful about the woman?
The speaker finds her contrasts beautiful: The light and dark appear in her face and in her eyes. Her face contains light alabaster skin, yet is engulfed in dark hair, and her eyes are dark in the iris, in contrast with their whites. [ [ This repeat of the contrast between light and dark reinforces the imagery introduced in the beginning of the poem.[7] The poem goes on to say that if she were
to have even one shade more darkness, or a bit less light, she would be, though not wholly ruined, "half impair’d".Towards the poem's end, Byron speaks of the woman’s inner thoughts and how they are all good, which serves to convey the woman as pure, making her all the more beautiful.[7] The reference to her angelic looks gives a window into her morality as a person, and enhances her beauty all the more. According to Uma Kukathas, the contrast of light and dark in the poem can easily be a representation of what art is in its entirety; there are so many varying, contrasting parts of art, and yet it all comes together to create something that is beautiful. The contrast of light and dark is used to convey the soft beauty of the woman; the beauty is soft and pronounced but not overdone. The woman’s beauty is soft like candlelight, not too overpowering, and yet is still obvious to all who look at her.[6] The dark part of the contrast serves as a reality check to make the woman seem more worldly and real, it creates flaws and yet if she were to have even one bit more light or darkness she would only be "half-impaired". Byron speaks of her "nameless grace", in which one would think he were speaking of her grace as she walks, but he is really speaking of the grace she possesses from the darker features of her face, which serve to enhance her beauty in the speaker's eyes. ]
