Dulce et Decorum Est

Dulce et Decorum Est Questions
Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.
- Why end the poem with a Latin quote? Why not an English slogan?
- How would the poem be different if the last stanza weren't addressed to people at home? How does this stanza change the meaning of the poem?
- Do you think that the speaker creates a realistic picture of his own experiences? Why or why not?
- How would you characterize the speaker's attitude towards war?
