I am about to start the planning stage in my GCSE war poetry and I am wondering how to set it out and what poems to use. The question is asking you to look at the price paid by soldiers in the war. The 4 poems I have to choose from is "Dulce et Decorum est", "Disabled", "Anthem for doomed youth" and "Mental Cases" all are by Wilfred Owen. I definitely want to do Dulce and Anthem but I'm not sure whether to choose Disabled or Mental Cases as my last poem. Also I am not sure how to plan the essay, I remember that the question said I must compare how he shows the price paid in his poems but I don't want to use simple connectives like "similarly" as we were told not to, but I am not sure how to talk about more than one poem on the same price without using simple linking words, any ways to use more advanced techniques will be appreciated, thanks for all help.

Disabled & Dulce et decorum est

They're both right depressing. One is after action, the other is in media res.

Think about the benefits of analysing one at a time vs doing a concurrent double analysis.

One is about big themes, patriotism, duty and survival (or the redundancy of). The other one is about not getting laid because you have lost your legs.
