Blow out, you bugles, over the rich Dead!
There's none of these so lonely and poor of old,
But, dying, has made us rarer gifts than gold.
These laid the world away; poured out the red
Sweet wine of youth; gave up the years to be
Of work and joy, and that unhoped serene,
That men call age; and those who would have been,
Their sons, they gave, their immortality.

Blow, bugles, blow!They brought us, for our dearth,
Holiness, lacked so long, and Love, and Pain.
Honour has come back, as a king, to earth,
And paid his subjects with a royal wage;
And Nobleness walks in our ways again;
And we have come into our heritage.

brooks was a propaganda poet it was his job to write poems that glorifies war but in reality it was grusome poor living conditions and an inevitable death of you or a friend. i think it is very persuasive the way he writes but i will never know how he truly feels about war.

The poem celebrates the people who sacrificed their lives at war.
“the rich Dead!” is an important element in the opening line of the poem. It defines the dead as honourable, signifying that people who will or already have died are war heroes and bring honour to the country.
Honors - They are honored by ceremonies, such as the blow the bugles. It\'s a public celebration. “Nobleness walk in our ways again...” Nobles comes to the nation through the death of the soldiers. It brings spiritual morals, more important things than life: honor, nobleness, righteousness, holiness and love.
Death -Death is presented as something important and noble. The death enriched the living. The soldiers had profits from dying – it made them noble, they remained immortal through the act of remembrance.
The word, “Dead” is written with a capital letter to further suggest the importance of dying for your country. The line is written with an exclamation mark (!). This suggests that the opening line is meant to be said and heard triumphantly.
Brooke was very patriotic and pro-war poet. He glorifies war; he believes that dying for your country is the most honourable thing to do. He uses romantic imagery and also religious imagery.
Sacrifice - “red sweet wine” - implies that they died at young age, which made their sacrifice even more important. The wine can be read also as a implication to Jesus Christ, who died in order to redeem the world; like those soldiers who died for a great purpose.
Perspective – public perspective on war. The author represents thinking of all nation, the general point of view. Soldiers died but survived in people\'s memory. “Dulce et decorum est pro pateria mori” (It is sweet and fitting to die for one\'s country. From Horace\'s Odes) The poet denies the individual, personal aspect of war. Poem shows the ignorance towards the true horrors. This could have been because Brooke was never a soldier and had not fought in any wars, so his poem would be what he imagined war to be like.
Alliteration - on the plosive \'b\' sounds mimics the action of the sounds and the blowing.

Brooke was very patriotic and often glorifies war, he believes that dying for your country is the most honourable thing to do. He uses romantic imagery and also religious imagery; "Honour has come back.... And nobleness walks in our ways again" I think this is referring to Christ and how when he was crucified is when he became honoured by others. Therefore in the soldier's deaths, they will be glorified and honoured by others. It's also written in a sonnet format as if it was a love poem. I think "But, dying, has made us rarer gifts than gold." sums up the poem and Brooke's beliefs as all his other poems are similar. E.g. The Soldier.

I think that this poem represents the soliders in the war who have lived a long and glorious life but it comes to an end. He also agrees that dying is an escape from the pain that they are also suffering.

This is one of the five sonnets Brooke wrote in a series, it celebrates the sacrifice of the young men going out to die. It begins with a command and the use of alliteration on the plosive 'b' sounds mimics the action of the sounds and the blowing.
The sacrifice of all their lives, whatever their previous statement might have been is a 'gift beyond value.' Hence the line, 'rarer gifts then gold.'
The poem is neither a petrachan or shakespeare sonnet but one made up by Rupert Brooke.
This poem is used to glorify war and dying for ones country, this is backed up because Brooke was a very pro-war poet which can be seen in other poems such as 'Peace.'
However the poem is much more succesful in depicting the tragic loss of life and men. Which is not why Brooke wrote it as he wrote it to honour the men and their sacrfices.

I personally think that Rupert Brooke is expressing the fact that dying for your country is gloriful. Brooke seems to be very patriotic this could be because of the time in which the poem was written (1914) when people were still very optomistic about war. I think that his poem is gradiliquant and enobles sacrafice i also think that he is eulogising the dead.

I believe rupert brooke is glorifying death and the pleasure of achieving the state of eternity by dying a soldier's death which he considers as honorable and worthy of all praise and respect.he says soldiers have achieced this state through sacrificing the sweet wine of youth.they have given up their years of joy in service of their nation to achieve this state of "unhoped serene".he says its unhoped for soldiers never thought that it would be so peaceful and such a delight that all sacrificing they made have paid them all together.he says those who have sacrificed their lives in the battlefield shall always be remembered.he believs dying as a soldier a way to acievibg "immortality"

I believe that the second stanza has a symbolism. It symbolizes the death of Christ and how according to the passage,"Holiness, lacked so long, and Love, and Pain.
Honour has come back, as a king, to earth,
And paid his subjects with a royal wage;
And Nobleness walks in our ways again;"

I belive he is trying to get people into war. We see this when he says "rich dead". He is almost saying that these soldiers are lucky to have the chance to die for their country.

Brooke opens his sonnet with a sense of celebration, where he says, Blow out, you Bugles, over the rich Dead! A bugle is a military musical instrument used at celebrations, suggesting that this was a time to celebrate and look forward to things (the war). It symbolizes the honour brought by fighting for your country. the rich dead! is an important element in the opening line of the poem. It defines the dead as honourable signifying that people who will or already have died are war heroes and bring honour to the country. The word, Dead is written with a capital letter to further suggest the importance of dying for your country. (Mainly important things are given capital letters, i.e. countries, people etc.) The line is written with an exclamation mark (!). This suggests that the opening line is meant to be said and heard triumphantly.
The third line in the same stanza has the same idea where Brooke says dying has made us rarer gifts than gold. It shows the same ignorance towards the true horrors. This could have been because Brooke was never a soldier and had not fought in any wars, so his poem would be what he imagined war to be like

Brooke's view on world war one was that he couldnt 'find' himself as a poet and he felt that by enlisting and fighting he would not only develope a sence of patirotism but he would be preserving himself.. he had strong views about the heroic attitudes towards me who fought and felt that (as he was inspired by churchill to join the navy) he would be discovering his true calling in war. its dissapointing that brooke died of a mosquito bite before actually fighting in battle therefore he displays naivety in his poetry. he glorifies death and 'Englishness' and he feels that the war was an opportunity for men to become fulfilled. the glorification in death is simply due to the fact that for brooke eveything in life happened in order to prepare him for the war hence, in 'the soldier' he begins ,"if i die think only this of me' He cannot be negative about the war due to his excitement and passion for enlisting himself. death isnt his escape from life but is his way of being remembered and almost heroicly looked up to because of the sacrifice he and all soldiers had made for their country

This is a good essay question There is nothing glamorous, heroic or patriotic in this initial scene.

this poem is an attack on the war and not a glorification of war. it attempts to exaggerate the fact that these soldiers are real human beings with feelings and a life that should not be so easily disposed through war.

Brooke glorifies death because he thinks that it is right to die for your own country.

| Posted on 2008-09-10 | by a guest


.: :.

I believe that the poet has a positive view of war. He displays this by refering to positive things when talking about negative things. For example, "the rich Dead" the uppercase Dead also gives the Dead a title, which indicates some importance.
Brooke also glorifies the death of soldiers by saying "poured out the red sweet wine of youth". Brooke glorifies death instead of saying what it simply is; this then shows his positive outlook on war.
Brooke also claims that the soldiers have also reclaimed their honour and are forgiven for all of the misdeeds that they had previously committed. This is shown with the quotes, "Honour has come back" and "Nobleness walks in our ways again".

I think he has a negative outlook on life, as the lines But, dying, has made us rarer gifts than gold, These laid the world away; this implaying that dying is an escape from life.
