The Soldier Tone

Decent Essays
The tone of “The Soldier” is completely different from “Dulce et Decorum Est. In the poem, “The Soldier” the character is filled with honor and pride excited to go to war or his country he loves more than anything in the world. To him his world is England, and he would be honored to die for his country. “A pulse in the eternal mind, no less gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given” (lines 10-11). The speaker is willing to sacrifice his own life for England, so when people are looking at his grave they will always think about him as a hero, or “The Soldier” from England.
