What are the themes of war poetry?

1 Answer

  1. Poems about wars generally fall into three main categories: personal war chronicles, patriotic war lyrics, and war prophecies.

    1. Personal War Chronicles: Personal war chronicles were kept by soldiers during wars. These chronicles were about what the writer did during war, what the writer thought about war, and how the writer’s life was affected by war.
    2. Patriotic War Lyrics: The patriotic war lyrics in war poetry show the spirit of American nationalism and freedom.
    3. War Prophecies: War prophecies in war poetry are suggestive phrases that depict the horrors of war, as well as the potential destruction that is to come. There are many war prophecies in war poetry, such as “the Old Man’s dream of war” by Siegfried Sassoon and ” The Soldier” by Rupert Brooke, both of which depict the horrors of war.
