"Anthem for Doomed Youth" Wilfred Owen
"Anthem for Doomed Youth"
The violent ugly circumstances of the battlefield provided the funeral and graveyard for the young war dead. The madness of this ("shrill demented choirs") and its gross evil ("the monstrous anger of the guns") are depicted. The contrasting sestet (last 6 lines) of the sonnet describes the sorrowing young ones' communities and friends. The poem contrasts the way human lives should be valued and commemorated with how war causes them to be treated. This poem is criticising the low level of sensitivity to the death of these young, brave soldiers.
