Description

'Had he and I but met
By some old ancient inn,
We should have sat us down to wet
Right many a nipperkin!'

In 'The Man He Killed', Thomas Hardy, an elderly man disgusted with the war, imagines the thoughts of an ordinary British soldier made to kill an enemy German.

Our lesson plan draws on Hardy's private correspondence from the war years to help students discern his true motives for the poem.
