    How do poets Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon present their ideas of war in their poems, Exposure and Does It Matter? Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon are two famous war time poets, who conveyed their first-hand experiences of war through the form of poems to enlighten people towards the reality of war, as shown in “Exposure” and “Does It Matter?”.

  • Analysis Of Guillaume Apollinaire's Poem Le Pont Mirabeau

    The very first idea introduced in Guillaume Apollinaire’s poem “Le Pont Mirabeau” is the timeless image of the Seine river flowing under the pont Mirabeau, a bridge. This image appears on a first reading to have nothing in common with the rest of the poem, which discusses a past love. However, based on evidence from the text, the idea of the Seine continuing to flow is the unifying metaphor that describes the continuing passage of time that ties the poem together. The first stanza of the poem…
