Wilfred Owen and Jessie Pope. Their views of ww1.
Over eight and a half million men died in World War 1with just under thirty million other casualties. At he start of the war, in 1914, people were excited to fight the Germans and get back before Christmas. The war lasted longer than expected so propaganda was used to try and recruit men. Jessie Pope's poem "Who's for the Game" tries to get men to join the war comparing it to a game. The war was very brutal and gory. Men died and were left to rot away on the battlefields. Wilfred Owen, a WW1 soldier, experienced the bloodshed battlefields and the muddy, dirty trenches. Through his experiences Owen wrote the two poems "Dulce et Decorum est" and "Anthem for Doomed Youth" at the Craiglockhart hospital in Edinburgh, Scotland where he was recovering from shellshock. Owen's poems describe the pain and suffering the soldiers faced in the trenches while Jessie Pope's poem is completely the opposite. Her poems talk about the supposed fun in the war. In this piece of coursework I will be comparing the poets poems and will see how the poets views on the war differ.
