Sasoon has a stark and bold poem; he uses no similes or metaphors but lots of personification.
Has a great effect of loneliness and depression. It makes you feel pity towards the soldiers. He uses quotes like this to show his feelings towards the war. He also uses rhythm to help you understand the emotions of a simple boy, who is in a war beyond all his nightmares. In contrast Owens, poem, Dulce et Decorum est Pro Patria Mori, uses descriptive devices graphically to help with the understanding the horrific lifestyle these men had to go through.
"guttering, choking, drowning"
