In our literature class we are reading with our literature teacher, Pato Chujman, war poems. We started reading the poem called “Dulce Et Decorum Est”, written by Wilfred Owen. Afterwards, we read “Soldier rest!”, written by Sir Walter Scot and “The Death Bed”, written by Siegfied Sassoon. Then we read other poems related to war too from a webpage she gave us. Here you can see which poems were. Hope you like my post!
After that we had to choose two different poems from this website, prepare an analysis of them and illustrate them with pictures. I worked with Vignesh Manwani and we chose the poems “The Kiss”, written by Siegfried Sassoon and “In Time of The Breaking of Nations”, written by Thomas Hardy.
After analyzing so many poems we had to write an essay about them (individually). This was the task:
Compare and contrast 2 of the poems you have worked on. Comment closely on the themes, tones and how the writers convey their message.
