The Death of the Ball Turret Gunner

The Death of the Ball Turret Gunner

  

by Randall Jarrell

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

(5) Tree Line

This is a pretty easy (very short!) hike. The clarity and directness of this poem's title and last line make it quite simple to catch what is happening at a basic level. But beware of low hanging branches as you approach the tree line. Understanding the poem at a figurative level requires a bit more work.
