Transcript of Siegfried Sassoon
Siegfried Sassoon in best know for his work in poetry. Sassoon poetry was based on his experience, war and what it was like for him. We study his work still to this day because we weren't around when WW1 took place so we study his work to get an image to what it was like to be in the war.
PHILOSOPHY OF WAR
Sassoon was one of the first poets too take a entirely negative perspective on the war. After experiencing the deaths of his friends and brothers, fighting in the trenchs under the terrible conditions and causing a number of injuries, Sassoon wanted to show the real reason behind war. Sassoon did not like how war was explained in the media and what the common definition of war was - it was all about glory, being a hero and serving your country.
Key Ideas from His Poetry
The main theme and idea that is used in nearly all his poems is the truth and inhumanity behind war - what really happens when you go to war and what is actually experienced.
