An analysis of the last sestet of Rupert Brooke's sonnet, 'The Soldier' written in 1915. The commentary by a teacher, Tony Flaherty, explores the underlying meaning of the sestet, which encompasses the memoirs of a fallen soldier who declares his sacrifice shall be the eternal ownership of England, of a small portion of land he has died upon. The relationship between God and the state of the dead soldier is exemplified. The analysis is underpinned by a dramatised reading of the poem.
This video presents a dramatic reading of the poem 'The Soldier&' by Rupert Brooke. A vicar begins reciting the poem to his church congregation, before the dramatisation shifts to Rupert Brooke dying from blood poisoning on board a ship bound for the Dardanelles.
