38” by Layli Long Soldier
Dulce et Decorum Est” by Wilfred Owen
I chose two very different kinds of poems. “38” is not formal poetry; it doesn’t have a set form, rhyme, or rhythm. I think Long-Soldier applies rules to the poem, but they aren’t the kinds of rules we think of in more formal poetry. Poetry like Wilfred Owen’s WWI poem “Dulce et Decorum Est”; it might not seem like it at first, but this poem is quite formal. Owen constructs it using very particular rules around construction. I’ll let you try to suss out what you think those rules are.
The point being that these two poets approach their craft in very different ways. This will help you see some of the diversity of poetry (if you haven’t previously been introduced to it). But because poetry is such a grab-bag of concepts, both readings this week, as disparate as they are, fall into the category of poems.
One thing they have in common for sure is violence. In this discussion board, compare one aspect of each of these poems against each other. Offer some specifics from each poem to support your reasoning. Don’t try to compare them in their entirety; focus on one aspect of their forms, constructions, takes on violence, language, image systems, and so on.
