A few grammar and interpretation questions regarding Tennyson's poem Ulysses
On the poem Ulysses, one is faced with grammatical constructions such as:
"I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
That hoard, and sleep, and feed, and know not me."
I understand the meaning perfectly, but why shouldn't it be "that hoardS, and sleepS and feedS" ?
"And when, through scudding drifts, the rainy Hyades vexed the sea " <- What am I supposed to imagine when I read "scudding drifts"?
"I am become a name" <- I know perfectly what it means, but I don't understand the grammar, why not "I have became a name"?
"Myself not least, but honoured of them all" <- I know this verse means ""I wasn't treated like the least little thing but was honored by everybody I met", but grammatically speaking, how does it work?
Okay that'll be all for now, thanks in advance :)
