  • Sorry but Dulce Et Decorum Est is exactly the opposite of what a propaganda poem is like, isn't it?

  • the slide about Rupert Brooke is incorrect, sorry but that poem couldn't have been written in the trenches as Brooke died before he got into battle on the ship he was posted to moored in a French harbour, that's why it was so jingoistic he had never seen the truth of war
