The lines Wilfred Owen uses create a image in your mind and can make you feel the pain and sickness for example in one of hes lines he says "If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud''
this shows us that so many men were brutally killed during this war, their death was so painful and slow it seemed like cancer. Lines like this one play a massiv role in poem it creates such a disturbing image to the reader that it makes them feel bad for sending people to war. .
In Shakespears poem he uses speech which is full of images and figurative language and says how fighting for your country is a big joy, and is a good thing, Henry wanted hes troops to fight in the war, so he called hes servents brothers. The only reason he said that was so they could feel like they were being respected and wanted and were all one blood. Also Henry told hes troops how if they win or loss they will still be remembered. this gave the troops even more hope to join the war and fight because it made them think that even if they loose they will still be remembered as brave heroes who fought in the war.
He wanted hes country to suceed so he can prove to the world that hes country was strong and the best.
Both these poems look at war as the main subject, but express very different views on it. Wilfred Owen has written a very powerful poem about a man dying from a gas attack during the First World War, whereas Shakespeare writes a persuasive poem about the honour and pride found in battle. These two poems so incredibly far away, that it is very difficult to compare them. The one big difference is their attitude towards war. Wilfred Owen has actually been in a war. He saw what he wrote about. He was there, as the writing is his thoughts and feelings. One of the comparison in the poems is they both talk about war, and they are both trying to get a message across for example Shakespears message is that war is a good and joyful thing it will make you a hero and fighting for your country is a hounorable thing. As for Wilfred hes message is that war was not a pleasant thing and people who went there did not deserve to die, and the people who said fighting in the war would make you a hero, were wrong because all it did was give the soldiers hell and death.
