...Athlete Dying Young by A. F. Housman (Poetry) Ideally speaking, Housman has illustrated his gift of poetic craft in “To an Athlete Dying Young”. The consistent application of metaphor, rhyme and figurative languages together with careful usage of somber reflective mood witnessed right from the beginning of the first stanza and throughout the poem shows the author’s poetic prowess (Frost, James, pg 5). Moreover, the contradicting images and symbols such as the triumph parade and the interment cortege, the rose and the laurel bring complexity to deceivingly simple poem. In the entire poem, the speaker congratulates the young and eminent athlete for dying at a young and prime age rather than... To an...

...Athlete Dying Young" A.E Housman's elegy addressed to an athlete dying young celebrates the athlete's meteoric career and the fact his brief life helped to ensure at least that he did not wear out his "honours" (162). Robert Frost's short poem could, perhaps, also be considered elegiac in a sense, highlighting as it does the brief life of the choices open to humankind. In fact, there is an obvious element of regret in Frost's poem too, especially in his "sigh" (236) in the last stanza.
