This poem. I love it. "Dulce Et Decorum Est" ('it is sweet and right'), 1917, by Wilfred Owen (1893-1918) ─ The poem is meant as a condemnation of war. In November 1918 Owen was killed in action at the age of twenty-five, one week before the Armistice.

Read poetry from the First World War; contrast this with accounts from a modern war. Write a parallel narrative with two 'voices' and a time shift between their accounts of war.
