In this part of ‘In memoriam’ Tennyson is examining the ideas of existence and identity. He starts here from babyhood, with the infant who at first does not realise that he is a separate entity from his surroundings (and mother by the way!)The infant then becomes a toddler and realises he is a separate being with a name, and can be referred to – and can refer to himself – and what those words are.As the toddler becomes an articulate child his perception of being an individual deepens, and he gains confidence in it to the extent that he is brave enough to explore the environment he once thought was part of himself. He begins to see where those boundaries are too, and how they define him as an individual personality.All of this new knowledge will be useful in the next life, to make sense of existence in the first – for man to know himself before he knows God in the after life.
