The Soldier Analysis

Author: Poetry of Rupert Brooke Type: Poetry Views: 608

If I should die, think only this of me:

That there's some corner of a foreign field

That is for ever England. There shall be

In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;

A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,

Gave once her flowers to love, her ways to roam;

A body of England's, breathing English air,

Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home.

And think, this heart, all evil shed away,

A pulse in the eternal mind, no less

Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given;

Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day;

And laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness,

In hearts at peace, under an English heaven.

Analysis of the Poem "The Soldier" by Rupert Brooke
I am analyzing the poem "The Soldier" by Rupert Brooke. This poem is
about a man who loves his country dearly. The country is England. He believes
that if he should die in a far away battle field that people should remember of
him only that he was English. Brookes says in his forth line, "In that rich
earth a richer dust concealed." This means that if he is to die in a land
other than England that the soil would be made better because there would now
be a piece of England within it.
The plot of this poem reinforces it's meaning because it deals with
death and love. These are two powerful things that evoke feeling in people.
It helps to create an image in the poem of a man who is very brave and would do
anything for his country.
The character in the poem reinforces the meaning because he truly
believes in his country. He describes England in his ninth line by saying,
"And think, this heart, all evil shed away." These are the words of a man who
truly believes that his land is the greatest of good.
Images in "The Soldier" are extremely strong and persuading. One image
is the line "Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam." This line
evokes images of a beautiful woman cherishing and caressing the man who stands
at her side. Another line is "Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home."
This line creates a feeling of tranquillity and a unity with nature.

The Goverment have told Rupert Brooke and others that if he should die that they would die an honourable death and they should die for their country. He has the view that he is going to be a hero. He has no idea of the horrible mustard gas deaths that took place. He was young when he wrote the this, young people are easy to persuade.
