Rupert Brooke has a patriotic point of view meanwhile Wilfred Owen has a critical opinion.


Wilfred Owen portrays to the reader a vivid and horrific picture of
war and uses above mentioned imagery to show us the incredible irony
and true moral of the poem: that it is not in fact a "sweet and right"

C: My friend, you would not tell with such high zest

Imagery and rhythm and rhyme of Dulce et Decorum Est

Wilfred Owen titles his poem the Latin translation of what he refers to as “The old Lie” (Dulce Et Decorum Est), and sets out to disprove it.
War usually is a bloody series of battles between 2 or more factions. Usually it is between tribes or countries. In Dulce et Decorum, Wilfred Owen describes war as being deadly, very bloody and disgusting where soldiers are innocently killed, ripped apart and treated like beggars without hope and they are very smelly. However, in wars countries generally tell the people something like it is sweet and nice to die for your country. That is what ‘Dulce et decorum et pro patria mori’ means. However, in Owen’s poem he argues that in reality it is not sweet and nice at all, in fact it is disgusting and sometimes makes you hate your country.
