As a group, review the Borden and Owen poems to identify powerful words and phrases. Then, complete the tone, irony, and theme columns individually, and answer the questions that follow. Compare your responses with the rest of the group once you are finished.
(a) In lines 16-17 of "The Song of the Mud," the speaker describes the soldiers covered in mud as setting "a new style in clothing" and introducing "the chic of mud." Explain how these descriptions are examples of irony. (b) How does word choice, tone, and the use of irony in these lines reveal the theme that war does not care about human suffering?
