Who's for the Game? Summary & Analysis
by Jessie Pope

Jessie pope who s for the game.small

"Who's for the Game" was written by the British poet Jessie Pope (1868-1941). Though it falls into the general category of First World War poetry, the poem doesn't deal directly with the experience of war. Instead, it is more of a call-to-arms, a targeted address to young men with the aim of getting them to enlist in the British Army. The poem was first published in a newspaper in 1915, before signing up to fight was made compulsory—and before the full horrors of WW1 had been revealed.
