What does the underlined sentence mean?This extract is from the poem "All the world's a stage" by William Shakespeare.
" Then a soldier,
Full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard,
Jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel,
Seeking the bubble reputation
Even in the cannon's mouth."
The bubble reputation = a short-lived glory
Even in the cannon's mouth = in the position of highest danger on the battlefield.
The soldier is seeking quick glory at great risk of losing his life.
