The End- Wilfred Owen Mood, Tone: The style of writing the poem, 'The End' is very emotive and this allows the audience to connect. This sets the mood as depressive and sad.

Ryan Cernecca The End- Wilfred Owen Analysis After the blast of lightning from the east,
The flourist of loud clouds, the Chariot throne;
After the drums of time have rolled and ceased,
And from the bronze west long retreat is blown,

Shall life renew these bodies? of a truth,
All death will he annul, all tears assuage?-
Or fill these void veins full again with youth,
And wash, with an immortal water, age?

When I do ask white Age, he saith not so:
'My head hangs weighed with snow.'
And when I hearken to the Earth, she saith:
'My fiery heart sinks aching. It is death.
Mine ancient scars shall not be glorified,
Nor my titanic tears, the seas, be dried.' Conclusion: Poetic Devices: Poetic Devices: Poetic Devices: After the blast of lightning from the east,
