Description

Poems Wilfred OWEN (1893 - 1918) A collection of poems by the English war poet and soldier of the First World War, Wilfred Owen. Owen is regarded by historians as the leading poet of the First World War, known for his war poetry on the horrors of trench and gas warfare. It stood in stark contrast to both the public perception of war at the time, and to the confidently patriotic verse written earlier by war poets such as Rupert Brooke. Only five of Owen's poems had been published before his death, one of which was in fragmentary form. Only one week before the end of the war, whilst attempting to traverse a canal, he was shot in the head and killed.show more

About Professor Wilfred Owen

Wilfred Owen (1893 - 1918) Wilfred Edward Salter Owen MC (18 March 1893 - 4 November 1918) was an English poet and soldier, one of the leading poets of the First World War. His shocking, realistic war poetry on the horrors of trenches and gas warfare was heavily influenced by his friend Siegfried Sassoon and stood in stark contrast to both the public perception of war at the time, and to the confidently patriotic verse written by earlier war poets such as Rupert Brooke. Among his best-known works --- most of which were published posthumously --- are "Dulce et Decorum Est," "Insensibility," "Anthem for Doomed Youth," "Futility" and "Strange Meeting."show more
