Dulce Et Decorum Est
Wilfred Owen was a British soldier who was killed in the trenches of World War I. Before he died, he wrote some powerful anti-war poems. “Dulce Et Decorum Est,” one of Owen’s most famous poems, was published in 1920. In this poem, Owen uses irony to refute the idea reflected in the poem’s title that “dying for one’s nation is sweet.” Instead, he graphically outlines the horror of modern warfare, describing a gas attack.
