written by Jessie Pope, and finally contrast this with the poems by Owen. DISABLED I think that in the poem 'Disabled', Wilfred Owen is trying to convey the real tragedy of war. Many people think only of those killed but reading the poem you remember that many people who were not killed in the war could still have suffered a lot more. In the poem Owen focuses on one young man, a single victim of war. It shows the effect the war has on the young man's life, when on returning from the war he has been maimed "legless, sewn short at elbow" Owen writes the poem with style.
The sound devices used in this poem are assonance, alliteration and rhyme. This poem ‘Magpies’ uses rhyme with the ABAB structure in the first two stanzas, but in the third the structure is ABABCC. Rhyme in this poem carries the reader along and helps them to connect with the rhythm. Another example of a sound device used in this poem is assonance. This is used in stanza three, line three: ‘of grace and praise – nor man nor bird’/ stanza four, line five: ‘For each is born with such a throat’/ stanza two, line four: ‘what clashing beaks, what greedy eyes!’ This has an effect that slows down the speed of the poem giving an emphasis on certain words.
One of the soldiers fails to fit the gas mask in time, and Owen masterfully describes himself witnessing the soldier’s gruesome death. Owen ends the poem with the Latin proverb from Horace's Odes (III.2.13) ‘Dulce et decorum est, pro patria mori’, meaning 'It is sweet and proper to die for one's country' (Dr. Stuart Lee, 1997). With those last few lines, Owen expresses his deepest disapproval of the war. He is rejecting the traditional view that glorifies war, calling it ‘The old Lie’ (line 27). Owen is addressing the reader, who possibly doesn’t have the first hand experience of the war, and criticising the enthusiasm with which the war is described, particularly to vulnerable children (BBC, 2013).

Ethical Issue: Before even beginning the project, Mr. Allison couldn’t keep his commitment in regards to meeting the temperature requirement. Mr. Allison was dishonest and to make matters worse he failed to voice his concerns. It was apparent that Gary was not truly on board with the project plans from the beginning and lack confidence to get the job done. Everyone on the team also did not communicate these issues with the client or stakeholders of the organization. Legal and Contractual Issues: SEC is guilty of legal and contractual issues in regards to the Orion Shield Project.
The author, John McCrae composed this poem while by the side of a dead comrade’s grave. The poem in itself presents an emotional message of what men of the battle were feeling, “We are the Dead...In Flanders fields,” (Lines 6-9); the men fighting were giving up living. McCrae demonstrates juxtaposition in these lines by contrasting life and death the lines symbolize how truly dead they are,
Throughout history, many soldiers have died in wars without their remains being identified. Following the First World War, a movement arose to commemorate these soldiers with a single tomb, containing the body of one such unidentified soldier. During the First World War, the British and French armies jointly decided to bury soldiers themselves. In Britain, under the Imperial War Graves Commission, Reverend David Railton had seen a grave marked by a rough cross while serving in the British Army as a chaplain on the Western Front, which bore the pencil-written legend "An Unknown British Soldier".  He suggested (together with the French in their own country) the creation at a national level of a symbolic funeral and burial of an "Unknown Warrior", proposing that the grave should in Britain include a national monument in the form of what is usually, but not in this particular case, a headstone.
“Brainstorm’s” prosody links the literal and figurative levels of the poem and orchestrates a profound concluding insight. At first reading, one may not notice that this free-flowing poem actually has a strict and regular rhyme scheme—a/b/a/b; c/d/c/d and so on, until the final solitary, unrhymed line—“inside his head he heard the stormy crows.” The regular rhyme lulls the reader into a soporific sense that perhaps this is merely observation and description. The solitary crows have been described as flying overhead and then walking on the rooftop; the lack of rhyme in the final line emphasizes the subtle blending of the physical and mental worlds of the ponderer. Although most of the rhymes are simple and clear (“alone/groan; snow/show; veins/mains”), Nemerov also makes use of slant rhyme, which has a disturbing and
Shakespeare’s Othello presents us with a tragedy that highlights the concept of not belonging and being an outsider. Individuals within the text hold certain attributes and behaviours which isolate them from society. Iago is an example of an individual that does not want and does not intend on belonging with the Society. The fact that Iago never becomes close to the other characters and instead uses them to assist his plan in destroying Othello, shows his lack of involvement and elevated sense of superiority. Iago’s separation from Society allows him to manipulate and deceive
The play Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead takes a different angle than seeking certainty in one’s actions, instead trying to understand others certainty without justification. Both characters spend the entirety of the play in utter confusion to the world around them as they are unable to make significant choices in their lives. Hamlet and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead both have a centralized theme of the impossibility of certainty explored in two different theatrical angles. The incomprehensibility of the world around the characters in Hamlet and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead allows them to directly question the certainty of their actions. Hamlet cannot understand the actions of the characters around him as he is the only character in need of certainty to allow him to act.
