Entire Essay–Compare/Contrast

Essay Question: Compare and contrast the poems “Dulce Et Decorum est” and “Anthem of Doomed Youth.”

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 WWI; however, they are different in that one poem shows death by gas and the other shows death by bullets.

Both poems are about war and death. In ‘Dulce et Decorum est.’ we see this in the quote ” Gas! Gas! Quick, Boys – an ecstasy of fumbling.” The use the ‘Gas! Gas!’ suggests that the gas is very dangerous and they will die. This is also seen in the poem ‘Anthem for Doomed Youth’. The quote “What passing – bells for these who die as cattle” conveys this idea of war and death. The use ” die as cattle” means that the soldiers are going to be slaughtered at war in bad way.  However, both poems are different in some ways. For example, ‘Dulce et Decorum est’ has gas to kill a soldier. This is seen in the quote “Gas! Gas!’. The use ‘fumbling’ suggests that it is a very bad war because the soldiers are scared of dying and that they are not in control of the situation. On the other hand, this is different from ‘Anthem for Doomed Youth’ in that this poem doesn’t have a very bad death. This is seen in the quote “Only the stuttering rifles’ rapid rattle“. The use the words ‘rapid rattle’ suggests that the soldiers are not dying a very horrific death because when you are shot it happens quickly but a gas attack is a slow death, one that involves you choking on your own blood.

Both poems are about the effects of war on soldiers. In ‘Dulce et Decorum est.’ we see this in the quote “Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge.” The use of the “through sludge” suggests that it is raining and that people are getting sick because they keep moving due to the fact that they don’t want to be attacked. This is also seen in the poem ‘Anthem for Doomed Youth’. The quote “No mockeries now for them; no prayers nor bells” conveys this idea. The use of the ” No mockeries”  suggests that people were mocking them but not any more. This indicates that they are dying without anyone around them. This is terrible because they don’t have anyone near them, like friends or family. However, both poems are different in some ways. For example, ‘Dulce et Decorum est’ explains more about the war and the other poem shows not a lot of information about the war. This is seen in the quote ” Men marched asleep. Man had lost their boots”. The use the” men marched asleep” suggests that they are tired and they felt sick. This provides more information about the war because it is more descriptive about what the soldiers are doing. On the other hand, this is different from ‘Anthem for Doomed Youth’ in that this poem has little description of what the soldiers have been through. The focus is on after the war takes place. This is seen in the quote “Shall shine the holy glimmers of goodbyes”. The use of the ” holy glimmers of goodbyes” is descriptive but it is only describing the aftermath of war, when the funeral takes place.

In conclusion, both poems they have in common war and that it was a bad war. However, they are different in that one was killed by gas and the other was killed by riffle. I think that “Dulce et Decorum est” to me is the best because it has more stuff in the poem. I believe this because it has more things that happened in it like the gas attack and that it shows what happens when you are in the war.
