War Writing Since 1914 - Poetry Chosen


I have chosen Wilfred Owen's 'Dulce et Decorum Est' and Mary Borden's 'At the Somme: The Song of the Mud'.  There are many compare/contrast text and meanings from two different perspectives.  Have written out the framework (232 words) and I am ready to crack on with the essay.  I figure if I have time on Thursday, I will return my library books and see what is left re the war poets (either that, or find scholarly articles online).
