I’ve read Dulce et Decorum Est several times, but reading it this semester really reminded me of another poem I’ve read in the past year, but I can’t quite put my finger on it.
Over the summer I read Beat! Beat! Drums! from Whitman’s Leaves of Grass and I see some similarities in the pieces (Especially with Owen’s “Gas! Gas! Quick, boys!” line and the opening line of Beat! Beat! Drums! being “Beat! beat! drums!—Blow! bugles! blow!”) but I’m not entirely sure if that’s the piece I’m thinking of.
Does anyone know of a similar piece? I’m wondering if maybe I’m just remembering reading Dulce et Decorum Est in Modern Poetry or if my brain has completely melted to mush and that Whitman piece is the one I’m thinking of.
