From Middle English knowen ("known"), from Old English cnāwen ("known, recognised, perceived"), past particple of cnāwan ("to know, recognise, perceive").
“The Bells” is composed of four stanzas of increasing length and is a showcase of onomatopoeia, alliteration, repetition, and assonance. The first stanza, a study of merry sleigh bells, is followed by a stanza on joyous wedding bells.
In the previous sections, the sound of the bells was filled with "merriment" (line 3) and "happiness" (line 17). Now the bells tell a "tale of terror." Before, the sound of the bells was full of "harmony" (line 17). ... Even the alliteration in this line, the harsh repetition of the "t" sounds, makes us a little nervous.
In the third stanza, the tone and mood shift abruptly. Brazen (brass) alarm bells shriek, scream, clang, clash, and roar "in the startled ear of night." They are clamorous, desperate, and angry.
