This essay will compare and contrast the portrayal and warfare in four
of the poems studied.

The first world war was portrayed as a glorious and credible cause,
fighting war for your country was deemed as the duty of any credible
man. Being able to represent your country on the battlefield was the
greatest honour a man could have. Men were engulfed with the idea of
being able to fight for their countries futures. Women would have to
do everything they could to stop their husbands and sons from risking
their lives by signing up for the war. At this time poetry was written
to encourage men to go and fight, poets like jessie pope who wrote war
poetry enforced this view.

These poems were written about (and at the same time as), World War I,
between 1914 to 1918. In these barbaric four years->killing spree 7
million men and leaving 17 million men injured, (physically-the war
tactics resorted to the tortures of gas attacks, gun-shot wound, shell
shock, starvation and exposure, to name a few...), the rest were
scarred by memories never fading. World war one devastated lives and
souls, time and space. But citizens back home had no way of knowing
what war was capable of, without television or radio to communicate to
them, they were only left to imagine the true horrors men were
enduring. If people had reailsed the true extent and the horrors of
what was actually happening, morale would have been severely
detrimentally affected. These poems were created by the thoughts and
feelings expressed by soldiers at battle.

Propaganda was partially to blame for the young lives that were stolen
by the war, because it encouraged men to actively volunteer for the
dream of taking the empire to victory and in return recieve the pride
of serving their country. Propaganda was engineered to give citizens a
false impression/ illusion of positivity about the events that were
truely making history horrifically, and consistently sent a message of
fortitude and unity to the enemy. Men were driven by promised finicial
gain, status and the chance to travel, but under such pointless pain,
suffering and horror that awaited them, ready to engulf them all in
battle, in such conditions as; 48 hours bomboardment, being surrounded
by dead bodies, acheing (mentally, physically and emotionally), foul
infestation, and living in fear and horror was not worth the cost of a
life. The war/government became so hungry for soldiers, it turned a
blind eye to/denied the fact that younger men were lieing about their
age so as they could join up...

To answer the essay question in its entirety, I will look at four
poems written by two poets with ...
