Description

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 during the Great War.

In this lesson plan, students learn about the context in which Owen wrote the poem, and end by trying to write a war poem of their own.

Our lesson plan helps students become intimately familiar with the poem, its meaning and context.
