Analysis of Dulce et Decorum est by Wilfred Owen

English Literature



8m 52s

The title, "Dulce et Decorum Est’, in Latin, sounds grand, intelligent, respectable and authoritative. However, this is a poem about the horrors of war and the title is purposefully misleading and ironic. The poem describes the terrible reality many young soldiers experienced. In this podcast we explore the language and imagery that help to support those ideas.
