This is part one of the transcript to the free lecture on Wilfred Owen's classic antiwar poem "Ducle Et Decorum Est". The lecture, by Dr. Andrew Barker is available for free on youtube and is a line by line analysis of what is happening in the poem. Teachers are advised to set the video as homework so that students can enter the classroom fully appraised of what is going on in the poem and ready to discuss it.
Part two of the notes to this lecture is also available for free.
