bodleianlibs: " WW1 unleashed the horror of industrialised warfare on Europe for the first time. A century on, it is through the art, poetry and testimony of its survivors that we can glimpse the realities of the conflict. Nobody captured this reality better through poetry than Wilfred Owen, who saw action at the Somme in 1917, one of the bloodiest battles in human history. This poem, 'Anthem for Doomed Youth' was written later in the year when he was recovering from shell shock."

"Move him into the sun— Gently its touch awoke him once, At home, whispering of fields unsown. Always it woke him, even in France, Until this morning and this snow. If anything might rouse him now The kind old sun will know". Futility - Wilfred Owen
