The Soldier

Rupert Brooke

What is the context of the poem? • Rupert Brooke, who was a young soldier in the first world war glorifies dying for one's country at war • Captures British early enthusiasm for the war • Jingoism
How does the form create effects on the reader/ • Sonnet- romanticising the war, which reflects the extreme patriotism of many British soldiers at the start of the first world war. • First stanza he talks about England and it's love for him and the second talks about heaven and how he imagines it.
Tone? • Both idealistic and realistic • Idealism= heaven and the love for war • Realism= "If I should die" • Romantic language glorifies war
