Study notes on the Anti-War, Post-1900 poem; "Spring Offensive"
Spring Offensive is a poem about a group of soldiers getting ready to attack. Normally we associate spring with new life growth and happiness. In this case, the soldiers can only expect their death. The soldiers are resting and nature seems to be giving them some energy.
"The summer oozed into their veins, like an injected drug for their bodies pains."
However, as they rest, they are still aware that they soon will have to fight again. Wilfred Owen uses alliteration to show how the men dread the next attack.
"Sharp on their souls hung the imminent ridge of grass."
