Wilfred Owen

  • Wilfred Owen was a soldier during WW1.

  • He died at the age of 25, one week before the war ended.

  • He wrote many poems about war. We will be reading ‘Dulce et Decorum est’.

  • Listen to the poem carefully.

Main Task

  • You have three minutes to complete the following task: In pairs, working on the sheet, underline or highlightwords or phrases you feel contribute to creating an intense atmosphere of despair.

  • Take into account how the soldiers are feeling.


Writing about the poem

You should always, when writing about any text, use the P.E.E formula. Make a point, find some evidence and then explain the evidence in detail.

Explain


  • You now have two minutes to complete a PEE chain to answer the following question: How do you think the soldiers are feeling?

  • P-Point- Make your point on how you think the soldiers are feeling and why (in brief).

  • E-Evidence- Quote evidence from the poem to support your answer.

  • E-Explain- Explain your answer further. Comment on what the words mean and how they show the feelings of the soldiers.


Point Evidence Explain

Look at how Owen uses language in the poem. Make one good point about the poem, select one quotation to back up your point then explain the quotation in detail.


Don’t forget to explain yourself

Use the information from the table to write three points about how Owen uses language, structure and devices in the poem. Add a quote and explanation for each point.

For example:

The poem describes…

In the first stanza the poet…

This shows/conveys...

Point

Evidence

Explain


I think the soldiers are feeling terrified, as bombs are going off behind them. ‘Of disappointed shells that dropped behind’. Owen uses language to show the fear of the soldiers who walk along trying to get to their camp, while the ‘shells’ being dropped by the enemies just miss them. The word ‘disappointed’ refers to these near misses and the disappointment of the enemy. The soldiers surely realise with terror just how close they are to dying.


Plenary

  • How has this poem made you feel?

  • How does this compare your feelings at the start of the lesson?
