According to types of text that will be translated, there are many types of texts and one of the texts is about literature, and poetry is one of the examples of literary text. In general, there are a lot of methods in translating a text, but not all of them are appropriate to be used in translating a poem. Thus, the researcher is interested to know the ability of students in mastering and comprehending English, in this case the ability of students in translating, particularly in translating Lord Byron’s Poem She Walks in Beauty. This research discusses two statement of problems, They are: what kind of methods are used by students in translating Lord Byron’s poem She Walks in Beauty and what kind of difficulties are faced by students in translating Lord Byron’s poem She Walks in Beauty.

In collecting the data for this research, there were two instruments which were used, those are: 1) using documentation which were taken from students’ translation of English poetry entitled She Walks in Beauty by Lord Byron into Bahasa Indonesia. 2) giving questionnaire, in this case, the respondents (the sixth semester of English Departments students) were given questionnaire which contain of some questions that must be answered by them to know their methods and difficulties in translating poetry. In analyzing the data for this research, the researcher employed some techniques to describe the data. The finding data were organized and connected with translation theory and the result of questionnaire were checked, then make some classification such as categorization for the methods that mostly and least used by students in translating poetry and classification for kind of difficulties are faced by them. Thee researcher concludes that from the 18 lines of the poem: 14 lines were translated by using free translation methods, two lines were translated by using literal translation methods, one line was translated by using adaptation translation methods, and one line was translated by using faithful translation method. It can be said that the most methods used by students in translating poetry, namely 14 lines of this poem was free translation method.
