I asked a similar question earlier, but I wasn't clear enough.

The subtitle of Auden's The Unknown Citizen is "To JS/07/M/378 This Marble Monument is Erected by the State"

So, is the entire poem an obituary written on the monument? Or is it a government representative speaking about the citizen, and unintentionally showing government hypocricy? Or is it simply the poet making a comment?

    the initials might then refer to John Smith (like Jane Doe), forever to remain "unknown."
