The Soldier

The Soldier

by Rupert Brooke

The Soldier Summary

The speaker informs his audience what to think should he die. He tells them only to consider that a portion of some foreign field will be "forever England" as a result of his death. The soldier, who was raised and nurtured by his country, England, will be buried in the earth. After he dies, the soldier will go to a peaceful, English heaven, where he will re-experience all his English memories. Good times! Right?
