Description:

This paper examines the poem "The Soldier" and looks at how it deals mainly with the thoughts and feelings of a man who loves his country dearly. "The Soldier" is a very short poem which consists of only two stanzas. The paper discusses how the poem seems to have been written towards the end of the war, when the poet wasn't sure if he was going to survive those last few days and how the lines are full of very patriotic words and descriptions of the English motherland. It also shows how it is a wartime poem which skilfully draws our attention to the morale of the soldiers during that particular period.

"The Soldier" is a very short poem which consists of only two stanzas. This poem seems to have been written towards the end of the war, when the poet wasn't sure if he was going to survive those last few days, and the lines are full of very patriotic words and descriptions of the English motherland.
