His honour rooted in dishonour stood,
And faith unfaithful kept him falsely true.
What is the meaning of `stood' and `faith unfaithful' here?
Could anyone explain it?
Re: faith unfaithful
stood= hald fast/did not break
faith unfaithful- an oxymoronic statement- it contradicts itself, refelcting the conflicting emotions between his love and his duty.
