ESSAY 4 DIRECTIONS
First, explain in simple contemporary language what is going on in each set of lines (or stanza)â€”write as if this were being said today in a local club or bar. In other words, change the language here from that of late 19th century England to that of a club in your city or region today.
Then explainFILLER TEXTabout the narratorâ€™s (the speaker’s in the poem–not Thomas Hardy’s) argument about why he killed the man. Then, based on his language and delivery, explain his argument–whether or not he feels he did the right thing when he killed the man. Finally, explain the narratorâ€™s attitude (or feelings) toward war itself.
In your essay be specific. Use â€œproofâ€ from the poem to show your argument or points. This proof will be specific statements the narrator makes.
