  • Some of His literature
  • I will be explaing the Figuretive language in a stanza of the Poem Drummer Hodge
  • The stanza,"They throw in Drummer Hodge, to rest Uncoffined -- just as found: His landmark is a kopje-crest That breaks the veldt around: And foreign constellations west Each night above his mound."
  • The first line exaggerates that when a solider dies they don't have a proper .They let the bodies stay there where they are found.The second line mentions a child who lied about their age to get into the military which symbolizes in the poem that he is easily seen.It is also personifying the grassland which where they fought.Then it personifies that the stars are moving around but the earth is.It is around the dead bodies.

IT is about the death of the soilders.

  • WRITING STYLE
  • Thomas Hardy has a different writing style than most off his colleagues.
  • He writes a lot about his pain and regret he has and his disappointment he might have on his life.
  • He mostly likes to write about post WWI.
  • He writes about both fiction and nonfiction and kind of death
  • He Writes about fiction and probably his interest in WWI.He is different from others due to the different poems that he writes.He may have regret of the life he chosen which makes his poem more diffrent.

I believe he had a lot of regrets and he is somewhat disappointed in himself.

  • Critique
  • His work is very interesting.He writes about in a bad tone and about death.He must had a spark for WWI and likes writing about it.He allows his audience to understand how people die.His Pain and regret gets passed down to his writing and i see that as an insightful thing due to the poems getting more character.I really recommend his poems.
