A workbook which leads up to a coursework essay comparing Dulce et Decorum est (Wilfred Owen) and The Charge of The Light Brigade (Alfred Lord Tennyson). Used in conjunction with Arrows of Desire series on teacher's TV (episodes 1 and 3) and a powerpoint in mustard gas found here.

I used a thread. I used a thread to write up some interview questions and some of the answers that you came up with. Hope it helps everyone and know one minds their answers being shared.

Additional. You can here the original recording of the poem on an Edison Bell Phonograph read by Tennyson towards the end of his life. It makes a fascinating comparison for students who get to listen to a modern reader like Motion and then compare it to the reading by a C19th century poet. There's also the surprise of Tennyson's quite strong accent. Good exercise in there to add on!
Some other great poems and poets in that BBC section too.
