Essay Introduction

During WWI, the English poet Wilfred Owen wrote “Dulce Et Decorum est” and “Anthem of Doomed Youth.” “Dulce et Decorum est,” is about how war was bad and that the soldiers had no funerals–there was just left to die slowly. They also were exposed to a gas attack and it was very bad for. “Anthem for Doomed Youth’ is about how the soldiers were like cattle. They also died but it wasn’t really not terrible. These poems are similar in that they both have death and it takes place during WW1; however, they are different in that one poem shows death by gas and the other shows death by bullets.
