"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.
