the horrible living conditions. He hooks the readers by using many different
writing techniques. Frost was also a poet, although American who was very known

poet also uses harsh language in his poems to show the tough reality of war and
the tragedy of it as he does in ‘Out, out’. So both of these poets are similar
in some ways and different in others in order to show the same thing, being the
tragedy caused by war.

he had lived through this. The main character in the poem struggles with regret
and is extremely scared of being forgotten, as he has to rely on others, making
him weak and vulnerable. This man had lost his limbs during war and was now in

keeps referring to his past life and mentioning how good it was. He compares it
to how it is now and to him this isn’t living. The poem shows a man that
regrets the decision he made as an innocent child almost.
