The poems Dulce et Decorum est written by Wilfred Owen and Hymn Sung at the Completion of the Concord Monument written by Ralph Waldo Emerson are both about times of pain and misery yet the events in the poem and the view points of the authors are notably different in many ways For example the time the poems were written is close to eighty-five years apart Dulce et Decorum est poem was written in 1921 and Hymn Sung at the completion of concord monument was written in April 19 1836 Both poems are different and the same in many ways a lot like the authors who wrote them One of the differences that most people would see is how Wilfred Owen is writing from the front line of battle in World War 1 On the other hand Ralph Waldo Emerson is writing 60 years after the Battle of Concord Emerson said The shaft we raise to them and Thee what Emerson believes is that war is prideful and the men in who fought in the Battle of Concord should be respected Wilfred Owen experienced war in person he might have been traumatized in his first had experience on the front lines hence the amount of anger and pain he lets out in his poem According to the poem Dulce Et Decorum Est a soldier dies right in front of Wilfred Owen because he couldnt get his gas mask on in time Wilfred Owen describes the event saying In all my dreams before my helpless sight he plunges at me guttering choking drowning The two poets have individual creative styles Wilfred Owens style is realistic and unforgiving a good example is when Owen says Drunk with fatigue deaf even to the hoots Ralph Waldo Emersons style however is passionate and formal he expresses it when he says On this green bank by this soft stream Emerson makes many water references through out his poem
