ww1 poetry traditional approach involves reading and analysis of poems leading to critical essay

ww1 poetry traditional approach gives you… A poem that I have recently studied is Dulce et Decorum Est by Wilfred Owen. Written in the time of the war, the reader expects a touching poem about the bravery of the soldiers, but instead they get the complete opposite. We think of deaths that occur in the war would be quick and painless a single bullet, but in this poem Owen shows us that extremely slow and intense. .

The imagery and word choice he uses shocks us, but the soldiers are completely desensitised to these scenes, and that is the touching bit part for us. In this essay I will be telling my point of view of which poem is the best out of the two, “Dulce et decorum est” by Wilfred Owens or the poem “The Call” by Jessie Pope.

Solve The Mystery… • Why was this changed? • "what minute-bells for these who die so fast"
