    'Dulce et Decorum Est'
    By Wilfred Owen 
    An Education Umbrella lesson plan

    In all my dreams, before my helpless sight,
    He plunges at me, guttering, choking, drowning.

    There are few more moving poems in the English language than Wilfred Owen's 'Dulce et Decorum Est'. With shocking imagery and haunting self-reflection, Owen shatters the illusions of grandeur that sent so many young British men to their deaths in the Great War.
