dulce et decorum est (summary)


dulce et decorum est (summary)


Owen is recountng his first hand experiences of fighting is the war. He describes the dreadful conditions of the battlefront. He grusomley despicts the death of a fellow soldier from a gas attack. He is an honest portrayal of war. Wilfred Owen set his poem “Dulce et Decorum Est” during World War I on the western front in France. His purpose—to protest against the mentality that perpetuates war—is unmistakable, but what sets the work apart from much other antiwar literature is the effectiveness of his tightly controlled depiction of war.
