Now, God be thanked Who has matched us with His hour,
And caught our youth, and wakened us from sleeping,
With hand made sure, clear eye, and sharpened power,
To turn, as swimmers into cleanness leaping,
Glad from a world grown old and cold and weary,
Leave the sick hearts that honour could not move,
And half-men, and their dirty songs and dreary,
And all the little emptiness of love!

Oh! we, who have known shame, we have found release there,
Where there's no ill, no grief, but sleep has mending,
Naught broken save this body, lost but breath;
Nothing to shake the laughing heart's long peace there
But only agony, and that has ending;
And the worst friend and enemy is but Death.

Rupert Brooke\'s sonnet \'Peace\' was one of many sonnets that he had written during the first world war. Having a poet\'s ingenious vision can change the concept of viewing war as a cause of pointless destruction . Brooke saw war as a great cause to bring about internal peace not only to one\'s soul but also to the entire society . Due to the hierarchy of the universe that the Victorians had in mind , they understood that by serving their country they were serving God which made war more than just destruction .
At first sight the poem looks like a prayer since it is all about being thankful to God for giving one the strength to reach peace . It is a prayer of thanks to God for the opportunity of having their sins absolved through death for a good cause and so therefore to be able to enter heaven . In that time , modernism corrupted the society leaving people without any purity or peace and that was where the religious dissolution began .As a result , some people had the desire to overcome this corruption and find some concord.
The idea of rising Willingly to join the British army and fight might seem difficult to others but not to those who truly understood the triviality of life . To defeat one\'s fear , one should have physical strength , perception and dedication. Brooke described the battle as a place where people dive and clean of sins though they might face pain for a while but after that they will have endless peace.
Brooke is saying that the sinners have found absolution, repentance, doing your penance at the war. Nothing really bad can happen since everyone is dying satisfyingly . The pleasure , satisfaction and peace that people find in hereafter are completely theirs unlike the worldly version of those that fake.

He portrays a sense of \'Peace\' and how war is a revitalising experience. But also a sexually cleansing experience and he cleared out his arsehole with his wet dildo with skids on it

I will take in to consideration the comments that have been made. Rupert Brooke should have his own opinion on the war whether it's patriotic or not. But Brooke indeed at an early stage is typifying the emotive diction and symbols of sacrifice. However Sasson and Owen are in my opinion, the best poets ever. Owen captures many dreadful experiences and conveys the truth with horrific detail in his poems. For example, Dulce et Decorum Est. If it wasn't for people like Owen we would be clueless and literature wouldn't be the same without these poets.

yes yes heheheheh huhuhuh hahahaha me very think that he is good poet but Brooke has not experienced life at war himself he died before that poor man but he unlike some poets escaped the scary experiences of war life. But does the poem really have dildo marks o

I believe that Rupert Brooke is a very sentimental man who expresses his feelings by making his life sound boring and unhappy. I think he describes the war like a spiritual crusade and a once in a lifetime chance

if brooke thinks love is "off" in the flow of peace, he would express such patriotism, as that is also a form of love. He expresses love to God who "wakened [them] from sleeping"

This poem is really good and describes how the homosexuality of the men in the war was portrayed by Brooke's massive dildo that has skidmarks all over it

This poem seems inspired by Shakespeare's 'Henry the fifth'.
Archaisms are used to make it sound old fashioned.

.: :.

He uses eye rhyme when rhyming “move” and “love” (6,8). He does this to make love sound somewhat off, when compared to the rest of the flow of Peace. This further shows how much he dislikes love, which he had already shown with his referring to it as “empty” (8). This is further supported with the knowledge that Brooke had suffered a bad breakup the year before, and was very bitter about love at the time.

.: Themes :.

When reading Peace one must take into account his own personal life firstly. After an emotional crisis just before the war and his confusion of sexuality and love he seeked a fresh start. This was provided by the war.
The first theme is of spiritual cleansing:
Brooke sees the war as a way of giving man moral purpose and therefore cleanse him from the effeminacy that Modernism has created. The image of "swimmers into cleaness leaping" gives the idea of man washing away his past in life and startung a new.
Self realisation:
At the start of the war Brooke was just recovering from his emotional crisis and saught purpose in life. The war brings this to him. He now has something to give "honour" in his life and moral purpose. In the first line of the sestet he says how we "have found release there"; by "there" he means firstly the war and secondly Brooke's own life.
Manhood:
Brooke grew up with the religious idea of muscular Christianity that wanted to cleanse man and give them the purpose that they have previously had in war. He thought that modern ways had changed man into something ironically not "manly" so to speak. He describes those who are not cleansed by the coming of war "half-men", they do not yet know their moral purpose in life.
N.B. Brooke may have found release in war but he never had a chance to get fully involved. He was involved in the evacuation of Antwerp in October 1914 but died early 1915 of blood poisoning. Many think that if he were to be more a part of war he would not see it so much as cleansing or giving man purpose, because that would mean man's purpose is to suffer under the brutality of war (like many poets have described it, e.g. Owen and Sassoon).
A lot of what Brooke says in Peace differs greatly to other poets ideas. For example "caught our youth" differs from what Wilfred Owen says in "Disabled"; "younger than his youth", meaning that the war makes a man old even if he is physically young. Contrasting the word "caught" in Peace suggesting that mankind was falling from youth until the war and it is war that brings it back to them along with purpose in life.
