The last poem of the anthology is perfect to remark that the Great War haunted many people to the end of their lives.
We can see much of the themes shown in the fifth chapter of the anthology developed in this episode.

 But maybe the best summary to the episodes and the chapters in the anthology is: the more you look at the skull the more angry does it seem.
