Dulce Et Decorum Est by Mind Map: Dulce Et Decorum Est

1. Kinesthetic Imagery: Movement

2. Tactile Imagery: Touch

3. "ecstasy of fumbling" We picked this because you envision a soldier fumbling trying to get their gas helmets on. This helps the reader envision the panic and the urgency that the soldiers felt as they tried to get their helmets.

4. "Fitting the clumsy helmets just in time" is the primary example of tactile imagery in the text. It describes the touching and handling of the helmets as they try to defend themselves against the gas attack.

5. "Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge" is kinetic because it describes the men coughing uncontrollably and moving through the mud

6. "Behind the wagon that we flung him in" shows movement by explaining that they flung his body into the wagon. This can make the reader realize how quickly they had to move along and leave the body behind, almost carelessly.

7. "Bent double, like old beggars under sacks": They were bent double because how big of a tole war had taken on them. We picked this because it explains how grueling war is. Also, how propaganda of war makes it out to be not that big of a deal, when really it is absolutely terrible.

8. "Men marched asleep..... But limped on" shows how the men were exhausted from the war but still went on, even though they physically could not

9. "...stumbling and floundering like a man in fire or lime." We picked this because it gives the reader an idea of the soldiers stumbling over themselves. This helps the reader envision the soldier stumbling and flailing, struggling for help in the mustard gas.

10. "Till on the haunting flares we turned our backs": We picked this cause we envisioned a huge fire and the soldiers shielding from the heat. It makes the reader think of all the difficulties of war.

11. "And towards our distant rest began to trudge": We picked this cause you can see the restless on all the faces of the soldiers. It makes the reader envision everything breaking down and how tiring everything is.

12. "He plunges at me..." We picked this because you envision the solider, affected by the mustard gas, plunging at the writer. This helps the reader envision the helplessness of the solider.
