Exposure Summary & Analysis by Wilfred Owen

Wilfred owen exposure.small

"Exposure" is a poem written by the English poet and soldier Wilfred Owen. Owen wrote "Exposure" in 1918, but it wasn't published until 1920, after Owen's death in World War I. Like most of Owen's poetry, "Exposure" deals with the topic of war. "Exposure" specifically focuses on the sheer monotony of daily life for many soldiers, as well as the harsh conditions they must endure (that is, be "exposed" to) even when not on the battlefield. This suffering is made all the more devastating given the fact that, in the speaker's mind, war seems to accomplish nothing on a larger scale (which is an idea Owen frequently espouses in his work).
