are there any famous poems about how soldiers at war deal with death. I'm reading "the things they carried" and the book talks a lot about how the soldiers would shake hands with dead people, (as a sort of dark humor I guess to desensitize them in a way) or how when curt lemon dies, jensen sings "lemon tree" to death with the death in a form of dark humor. Are there any poems that have similar ideas such as these about war and death?
Here are webpages/websites about two famous British poets who lived during WWI.
