Zusammenfassung

The poem “Anthem for Doomed Youth” consists of two stanzas and fourteen lines. The first stanza consists of eight lines and the second stanza consists of six lines, an octave and a sestet. It is a variation of the Shakespearian or Elizabethan sonnet.

Owen himself has divided the sonnet in parts, the break coming at the end of line eight, which gives the impression of it being a Petrarchan sonnet. The reader must not, however, be fooled by this break, because if one looks at the poem in terms of its themes, one finds that there is only one theme which takes up all fourteen lines. On the other hand, although the sonnet concludes with a rhyming couplet, there is no distinct theme in this couplet, as there would be in a classical Elizabethan structure.

This essay takes a closer look at the poem and analyses it in detail.
