The Dead Analysis

Author: poem of Rupert Brooke Type: poem Views: 26

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.

.: :.

Out of all of Brooke\'s 5 war sonnets, \'The Dead\' is but another with the theme of death. It is argubale that Brooke takes on the role as the voice of society in 1914, it is essential that the reader remeber these sonnets were only published in December 1914 and with the only previous knowledge of war being the childish memories of the Boer war Brooke should not be condemned for being so naive. \'The Dead\' is scattered with royal imagery and presents \"the rich Dead\" as a collective group of almost heroic martyrs. He personifies death here to express the concept of eternal glory, the capital letter stresses the dead\'s importance and as if they will never be forgotten. Brooke\'s intention was not to show propaganda as it is commonly mistaken, his work was simply to show the 1914 excitement for war. However loking back as Edmund Blunden once put his poems are \"not so much a great poem, as a great piece of war propaganda\"
