Analysis of No one so much as you (M.E.T.) by Edward Thomas

Although this poem is generally known by its first line, it also has a subtitle of (M.E.T.), which gives away the person to whom the poem is addressed, as the poet’s mother – Mary Elizabeth Thomas (or Townsend, to use her maiden name). This piece was written in February 1916, while Edward Thomas was training close to London, spending a great deal of time with his parents at their home at Balham in London.
