Does it Matter?
Does it Matter?
by Siegfried Sassoon

Tough-O-Meter

We’ve got your back. With the Tough-O-Meter, you’ll know whether to bring extra layers or Swiss army knives as you summit the literary mountain. (10 = Toughest)

"Does it Matter?" doesn't pull any punches. Sassoon tells it like it is, and you shouldn't have any trouble picking up on the sarcasm and irony. He lays it all out there. To be fair, if you weren't familiar with Sassoon, you might not realize at first that this poem is talking about World War I, but a visit to our "In a Nutshell" section should solve that problem right quick.
