  1. Wilfred Owens poem Dulce et Decorum Est is a very powerful and moving war poem. It is a protest against all innocent lives lost in the war

    This effect is achieved throughout the poem with wide use of alliteration, imagery and emotive language. The poem can be viewed as a sonnet with 28 lines which follows the ABABCDCD rhyme scheme. ?Dolce et Decorum Est? contains 4 stanzas where the meter is mainly iambic pentameter, however there are some disruptions. For example in line 9, there are 11 syllables; the line starts with four consecutive stressed syllables ?Gas! Gas! Quick, boys!? Powerful words and exclamation marks draw our attention to the terrifying gas attack and panic the soldiers were facing.
