Homework Help: english intro

Posted by jen on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at 9:41pm.

What is war? Is it good or is it bad? War is defined in many different ways and we, as people, have strong, different opinions about it. Some people are anti-war, some are pro-war, and some are neither. People may have different views on war, but most people can agree that war is a topic that brings out the emotional side of us, especially for poets. One might think that violence and death in a war would present similar feelings, but not to poets like Rupert Brooke and Owen Wilfred. Brooke wrote the poem, “The Soldier” in which he glorifies war and Wilfred wrote the poem “Dulce Et Decorum Est” in which he shows the horror of war. These two poets wrote poems based on the same subject matter, but the fact is that both have contradicting views on war and they both convey their views and ideas through two unique styles of writing.

My questions:

the thesis is the last sentence. I am using the word "and" two time. Is that okay?
It also seems like a run on sentence. Is there a place where i can put a semicolon.
I used the word "contradicting" in my thesis. am I using the word correct based on it definition or should I change it to "different".
The last part of the thesis: Should I say "two unique styles of writing" or just "uniqe styles of writing"
