The correct answer to this question isJessie Pope. Who's For The Game is a poem that talks about the war that was happening at the time. In this poem, the Pope gives a new opinion and attitude towards the war. While many wars against it, the poem shows a view of one being for the men going off to war.

The entire poem is an extended metaphor because the Pope is comparing the war to a game. The reader will feel personally connected to each young man that is written about because the Pope addresses each one individually. She shows their guilt and showcases that there is some glory to war.
