  8. 8. ww1 poetry traditional approach gives you… A poem that I have recently studied is Dulce et Decorum Est by Wilfred Owen. Written in the time of the war, the reader expects a touching poem about the bravery of the soldiers, but instead they get the complete opposite. We think of deaths that occur in the war would be quick and painless a single bullet, but in this poem Owen shows us that extremely slow and intense. . The poem protests against the idea that is it “sweet and right to die for ones country”; by bitterly describing one soldiers excruciating death as he got caught in a gas attack during World War I. The imagery and word choice he uses shocks us, but the soldiers are completely desensitised to these scenes, and that is the touching bit part for us.
