Abstract
The Great War was one of the deadliest global conflicts in modern history which reshaped the world. There are different perspectives on war and its purposes. One the one hand, Rupert Brooke’s poems “The Soldiers” and “Peace” present the view of the patriotic Englishmen which romanticized war as a noble opportunity to fight for one’s glory and nation. On the other hand, there is the perspective that criticizes the illusion of a glorious war, which is presented in Siegfried Sassoon’s poems “Enemies” and “Attack,” Wilfred Owen’s “Dulce et Decorum Est” and “Futility,” Isaac Rosenberg’s “The Dead Heroes” and “Break of Day in the Trenches” and Charles Hamilton Sorley’s “When You See Millions of the Mouthless Dead” and “To Germany.” Analysing World War One from a range of different perspectives is crucial for understanding the magnitude of the war and its influence on the literature of that period, which shifted from pro-war, political literature to pacifist literature.
