  • Robert Graves And Wilfred Owen - 1,729 words
    Robert Graves And Wilfred Owen Although the poems "Recalling War" by Robert Graves and "Mental Cases" by Wilfred Owen are both concerned with the damage that war does to the soldiers involved, they are different in almost every other respect. Owen's poem examines the physical and mental effects of war in a very personal and direct way - his voice is very much in evidence in this poem - he has clearly seen people like the 'mental cases' who are described. It is also evident that Owen's own experiences of the war are described: he challenges the reader with terrifying images, in order that the reader can begin to comprehend the causes of the madness. Graves on the other hand is far more detach ...

  • Robert Graves And Wilfred Owen - 1,794 words
    ... m, that the reader and poet are somehow to blame for the madness of the 'mental cases', in the same way that the mad men feel guilt about the men killed. Owen uses imagery in the poem in such away that the reader is actually haunted by the images of the mad men, and we are also left with a strong sense of guilt at their sacrifice for our life and sanity. The images continue to horrify throughout the rest of the stanza. One of the most shocking images is that of the mad men walking on the corpses of dead men "Wading sloughs of flesh these helpless wander" an image which is disturbing not only because of the image it creates, but also the idea that these suffering men reached the position ...

    Dulce Et Decorum Est Explication of Dulce et Decorum Est In his poem exhibiting the gruesome imagery of World War I, Dulce et Decorum Est, Wilfred Owen conveys his strongly anti-war sentiments to the reader.

Owen applies the rhetorical situation, sensory imagery, and figurative language to contribute to the power and anti-war sentiment of the poem. The rhetorical situation in the poem helps to make the reader accept the poems message by showing that the speaker may be trusted to b ...

  • Rupert Brooke - 971 words
    Rupert Brooke Rupert Brooke was one of the early poets in the war. He felt privileged like many to fight for their country. He died of illness in 1915 before having seen any action. He wrote in a romantic style of optimists towards war. He is remembered as a "war poet" who inspired patriotism in the early months of the Great War. He was good at poetry but had not seen the fear of the war. He would have been shocked to see what became of the war. His view towards war would have changed if he had. The Soldier If I should die, think only this of me: That there's some corner of a foreign field That is forever England. There shall be In that rich earth a richer dust concealed; A dust whom England ...
