Analysis of Blenheim Oranges (Gone, Gone Again) by Edward Thomas

This poem was written on 3rd September 1916, while Edward Thomas was resting for a few days, staying at his parents’ home at Balham in London, following a training course. By this time, Thomas had almost certainly decided to apply for a commission and overseas posting, which he felt duty-bound to do, rather than remaining safely in England, even though he believed that to go overseas would offer him nothing other than the assured ending of his own life.
