Draft of ‘Dulce et Decorum Est’ by Wilfred Owen, c. 1917-18British Library Add. MS 43720, f.21

This is the original manuscript of the poem ‘Dulce et Decorum Est’, written in Owen’s own hand while he served as a soldier in the appalling conditions of the trenches. Composed between 1917 and 1918 (the year of his death), the poem gives a chilling account of the senselessness of war.
Using a combination of gritty realism and an aching sense of compassion, it describes a mustard gas attack on a group of war-weary soldiers. Owen’s despair at the crumbling morality of the world around him is expressed in phrases such as ‘froth-corrupted lungs’ and ‘sores on innocent tongues’. The deliberately ironic title of the poem comes from one of the ‘Odes’ of Horace, the ancient Roman poet, which translates as ‘it is sweet and fitting to die for one’s country’.

Even when I had nothing, I had Bucky. 

"Sophie, the girl, is given a spell and transformed into an old woman. It would be a lie to say that turning young again would mean living happily ever after. I didn’t want to say that. I didn’t want to make it seem like turning old was such a bad thing — the idea was that maybe she’ll have learned something by being old for a while, and, when she is actually old, make a better grandma. Anyway, as Sophie gets older, she gets more pep. And she says what’s on her mind. She is transformed from a shy, mousy little girl to a blunt, honest woman. It’s not a motif you see often, and, especially with an old woman taking up the whole screen, it’s a big theatrical risk. But it’s a delusion that being young means you’re happy."

Q: There’s that moment in the movie where I was almost expecting Bucky to not follow Steve-to say that he’s a guy who always goes too far.



Sebastian: Yeah, I think there’s an element of being a little pissed off. I just escaped a god damn chamber where a guy is torturing me with things and now I’ve got to go back because you want to go back? Because you’ve got a fancy costume on now? That’s great, but I think there’s also a natural element of: I’m lucky to survive these battles and suddenly you come in and you save an entire platoon of people. And now you come in and you’re being hailed as The Guy. You take all this credit for it. But Bucky’s like, “It’s you and I care about you—of course I love you.” But again it forces Bucky to think, “What’s it all worth? What am I fighting for?”
