Futility Analysis



Author: Poetry of Wilfred Owen Type: Poetry Views: 2212





1 Move him into the sun--

2 Gently its touch awoke him once,

3 At home, whispering of fields unsown.

4 Always it awoke him, even in France,

5 Until this morning and this snow.

6 If anything might rouse him now

7 The kind old sun will know.



8 Think how it wakes the seeds--

9 Woke, once, the clays of a cold star.

10 Are limbs so dear-achieved, are sides

11 Full-nerved,--still warm,--too hard to stir?

12 Was it for this the clay grew tall?

13 --O what made fatuous sunbeams toil

14 To break earth's sleep at all?

I think, that Owen is using the technique \'anonymity\' to describe that there are too many soliders who can no longer be awoken by the Sun. Also, enjambment emphasizes the continuous of death and the short lines reinforces that lives can be cut off easily. Hope I helped.

I think it may be showing how the power of death is unmatchable when compared to the power of nature around the living. It enlightens us to the threat war has upon our vulnerable bodies and a synical view could be interpreted because of this?

| Posted on 2012-01-04 | by a guest

I love this poem as I love all of Wilfred Owens work but I can never decide whether I think Owen is trying to descirbe the power of death or the power that the sun is percieved as having. Any other ideas?

| Posted on 2011-12-20 | by a guest


.: :.

I believe that the two stanza structure shows his change from the futile hope (first stanza) to the sense of anger and betrayal.
The cultural context of this is that Owen used to be very religious. In fact he used to be a lay assistant to the vicar and he used to teach Bible classes and leading prayer meeting. So he used to depend on God. But perhaps he felt a sense of betrayal and anger by God after he saw the horrors of war.

Thankyou guys for all the comments that atleast had something to do with the poem. like eveyone else had elaborated,it is about the worthlessness of war.
in the 1st stanza, he brings to light a dying soldier on the battle field. an image of fellow soldiers treating the dying soldier immediately comes to mind. the sun that had healed this soldier many times has been unable to heal this soldier. this is to show how drastic the case is and as such portraying the distraction and devastation war brings. i.e. loss of live, identity and dignity.
the 2rd stanza is like a nostalgia concerning the sun. it\'s painful that the sun has been healing the soldier yet now it fails to do that.
the mood and tone is that of anger and regret. the poet might also being mocking the people who send young soldiers to war and with all the distraction is causes, doesn\'t understand why they would continue with war.
before i write an essay online, let me just end here. I hope i haven\'t confused anybody....

oh my god this poem about futility reminds me so much of shiv nanda.
it reminds me of the times when shiv nanda went to war and suffered badly. i find this poem really inspirational as it reminds me about shiv nanda...SHIV NANDA

this poem really exagerates the real meaning of war. the sun is represented as the source of life which is personificated in to giving the soldier life. beautiful work. (shiv nanda)

| Posted on 2011-10-09 | by a guest

This poem is remarkable for the use of para rhymes. Owen has used para rhyme or half rhymes as will ( shiv nanda ) be noticed in the rhymes like \'sun -unsown\', now-know\', \'tail-toil\' etc. In spite of being charged with emotion, the poetic art in this poem has not suffered at all.

\"Even in France\" implies the WWI trench warfare that occured in France while \"At home\" denotes England where the soldier is presumably from

Futility is Owen\'s belief that war is useless. The line \'At home, whispering of fields unsewn\' could show that the solider who died was a virgin as he had not had time to clap dem cheeks.

The term and title of the poem; “Futility “shows how pointless and worthless war is. “Futility” is Owens’s belief in the worthlessness of both God and war. The poet begins the poem talking of a certain “Him” It is obvious that the poet is talking about the soldier. \"Move him into the sun\". The sun stands as a metaphor for the giver of life here also I think that this might mean that the personification of the sun as gentle contrasts with the brutality with war. ‘And this star’, the snow seems a metaphor for a loss of hope.
Stanza 2 is very different. “Think how it wakes the seeds – woke once the clays of a cold star.” Here the poet is stating that the sun was capable of waking plants and seeds, and “clays of a cold star” Which makes the readers think why is it so hard for providing life, when it can save stars? Why can’t it save his friend now? The sun made things grow; if the sun could do this then surely it can wake up a single soldier? To break earth’s sleep at all? The rhetorical question creates an atmosphere as Owen implies that it was futile for the sun to have awakened the earth.
The were only to stanza
