The Soldier

The Soldier


by Rupert Brooke

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?


"The Soldier" imagines a soldier dying for his country on the battlefield, and then going to a peaceful, heavenly afterlife. This is a serious, sometimes somber, poem in which sex would just be out of place. It's rated G, friends.
