Fourth Peer Review

Hi Daniel!
Enjoyed your post about Gilmore’s poem, especially the emphasis you have placed on the meaning and power that the imagery of white beds has in relation to the war. I thought your interpretation of the meaning of the closed doors and empty beds was interesting however I had a very different interpretation. While you felt that they symbolised peace, I think that they are a commentary on the tragic waste of human life and the emptiness left where people used to be. In this interpretation, the message of the poem would be a pacifist view rather than the view that peace was created through a loss of life.
Keep up the great blogging!
