Introduction "Dulce et decorum est" is a poem about the horror and deception of war. "Rendezvous" is a poem about the honor, gratitude and patriotism of fighting a war. "Rendezvous" is also with reference to the inevitability of death at war. Wilfred Owen wrote "Dulce ET decorum EST" in 1917, he joined the British army in 1915, and he is considered a patriot and despises war. Alan Seeger who joined the French foreign legion in 1914 wrote "Rendezvous" in 1915. He was very passionate about the war and he appears to have a neutral outlook towards war...

The structure of both of the poems is quite orderly but Wilfred Owen has got a more recognized structure in that he uses an a-b rhyme scheme and that Alan seeger uses a scheme of rhyming the 1st 2 and last 2 lines.

This has no technical name. In a regular rhyme scheme there is 3 stanzas and so is there in both of these poems. The rhythm of Owens poem appears to create a little disorder but in other places the opposite and in seeger"s poem had similar effect but was not disordered as much.
