Individual Experience (Bayonet Charge ('yellow hare' crawls '…
No other soldiers in the poem
Isolated and alone
'yellow hare' crawls 'in a threshing circle'
Far from any help and comfort
Insignificant in 'cold clockwork of the stars and the nations'
Feels isolated from it
Needs space to reflect his experiences
Guilt about being able to escape 'suffering'
'stranger's features' that we photograph
Seeks approval 'without words' from man's wife
He doesn't share in it
Distances himself from them
'they do not care'
Feels different from everyone else
Ambiguity of 'they'
Isolated from rest of the world
Dramatic monologue in first person singular
Removed from the suffering he sees
Observes and comments on bigger picture
Criticises institutions for corruption
Description entirely negative
Questions whether he's biased
Can only picture 'the marriage hearse' at a wedding
Alone in his 'act of stealth'
Describes mountain in personal terms
Mountain 'strode after [him]'
Nature reacts to him individually
'solitude Or blank desertion'
Left him isolated and alone
Insignificant compared to 'huge and mighty forms' of nature
