I Know The Music Comments

Rating: 3.0
All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:


Wilfred Owen

This seems elementary compared to his other peices. Still it offers perspective and detail. I wonder if maybe the simplicity in the style was manipulated to capture the idea of how simple it is to observe and find the beauty in simple things. If so, well played.

He knows the music sung by nature. Stop and smell the roses and listen to their music as well...

An interesting fragment. Owen used a number of the ideas, most notably the bells, in his more famous Anthem for Doomed Youth (qv) . I'm sure someone will correct me if I am wrong but I think this might be an early piece written before his war experiences, at any rate the contrast in style is stark and most revealing.

Words project a heighten sense of reality, in a melodious musical word formation of feelings.

This is not Owen at his best. It reads like a first draft.
