you learnt about the different way writers from different periods deal with the subject of war. The three poems that I have chosen to talk about are “Dulce e Decorum est” by Wilfred Owen, “Suicide In the Trenches” by Siegfried Sassoon and “The Charge of the Light Brigade” by Alfred Tennyson. I will look at the three poems different opinions on war and how they compare and contrast from each other. I will also take into account the way the poets background may of affected there views. The
Comparison of Dulce et Decorum Est and Charge of the Light Brigade Compare and contrast the two poems Dulce et Decorum Est (Owen) with Charge of the Light Brigade (Tennyson), paying particular attention to the writers’ attitude to war. The attitudes of poets towards war have always been expressed vigorously in their poetry, each poet either condoning or condemning war, and mitigating their attitudes in whatever way possible. I aim to explore the change in the portrayal of war before
the different attitudes of love demonstrated by John Keats and John Cooper-Clarke. I will go on to consider how each poet uses imagery and other language devices to convey their message. I will compare the structure and rhythm of each poem, and consider how this affect the mood created in each poem. To conclude, I will show that the cynical attitude towards love demonstrated by John Keats is a reflection upon his painful life experiences, while the more positive attitude demonstrated by John

At the beginning of the war, there was a great feeling of patriotism and enthusiasm. Young men were eager to join the armed forces, as they thought the glory and heroism of war would be enjoyable. Fighting in France was expected to be an exciting adventure. Thousands of men joined so they would have the honor of serving
attempt to compare and contrast Wilfred Owen’s “Dulce et Decorum est” to Alfred Tennyson’s “Charge of the Light Brigade”. I will examine the use of poetic devices in the poems as well as outline what is happening in each. Wilfred Owen was born on the 18th of March 1893 in owestry, United Kingdom. He was the oldest of four children and was educated in an evangelical school. Though Owen rejected most of his beliefs by 1913 the influence of his education still remains evident in his poems and their
war before and during the twentieth century, and also the structures and devices poets use to express their views persuasively, and substantiate them. These three poems describe war, and scenes from war, with varying levels of intensity and reality from differing viewpoints. I am going to make a comparison between the three poems: 'The Charge of the Light Brigade' by Alfred Tennyson, 'Dulce et Decorum Est', and 'Anthem for Doomed Youth' both by Wilfred Owen.
