WAR POETRY ANALYSIS TITLE AUTHOR WHAT IS THE POEM ABOUT? WHAT PIECE OF TEXT STRIKES YOU? WHY? LIST THE TECHNIQUES USED EXPLAIN THE MEANING BEHIND THE TECHNIQUES WORDS THAT YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND? DEFINE THEM. How to die Siegfried Sassoon Dying in a way that would be considered appropriate, like a man and dignity. That lads go west with sobs and curses, And sullen faces white as chalk, Hankering for wreaths and tombs and hearses. Simile- sudden faces white as chalk Wanting to die, all associated with death. Simile Metaphor Rhyme “white as chalk” The blank pale faces waiting to die morning burns” Ab, ab, ab continuing Hankering- a strong desire to have or do something. Anthem for Doomed Youth Wilfred Own The futilely of death- hopeless No mockeries now for them; no prayers no bells; Nor any voice of mourning save the choirs,- The shrill, demented choirs of waiting shells; And bugles call for them from sad shires.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
