Analysis of The Glory by Edward Thomas

The Glory was written very early in May 1915 and reflects some of Thomas’s prose and poetic writings on health and happiness. In his book, The Heart of England, published in 1906, Thomas had written that he was uncertain that he was capable of feeling complete happiness, even when that emotion was gifted to him. He seems to have believed that he was unworthy of contentment because he understood too it too completely to ever fully enjoy it: he knew it and its flaws and disappointments too well.
