Benediction is the life story of the famous British poet Siegfried Sassoon. It is more than a life story, it’s a customary affair. The Poets’ life was tangled onto ravaged by war like any other human in that period. He is especially remembered as a War Poet, Adorned for bravery during World War 1, he returns just like before but so like before the blood haunts him the painful shrieks of his dying friend while taking his last breath, and those of that enemy soldier asking for killing him from the inside and out. The pathetical flashes like the black dark air from bombs change him. It’s like the reincarnation of him as a human now he can see the pain of that mother who lost her son, that wife who lost her husband, and that daughter that lost her father. This all makes him come out as a Vocal critic of the Government’s endless crusades. This course of the incident evolves him into a writer who writes poetry about the horrors of battle.
