    Literary Analysis: Dulce et Decorum est & The Unknown Citizen Verbal irony is something that can be used in our everyday life. Auden’s poem’s title, “The Unknown Citizen” begins with a verbal irony. Owen mocks war in his poem, “Dulce et Decorum Est” by showing how sweet and fitting it is to die for one’s country. Both of the poems use irony to present to the reader the pity of war, how there is nothing heroic about the “unknown citizen” and how the two poets have a similar intention on writing these poems. "Dulce et Decorum Est" by Wilfred Owen is filled with irony to demonstrate the true realistic nature of war.

Owen applied these words to demonstrate that dying for one’s country is not a sweet occurrence. Moreover, in the second stanza the speaker says “Gas! GAS! Quick, boys! - An ecstasy of fumbling” (Line 10). The use of the word “ecstasy” is a strange way of phrasing in the…
