  $44.75

No poet is more closely identified with the First World War than Wilfred Owen. His striking body of work, grim to the point of brutality, yet at the same time majestic and awe-inspiring, defines the war for us. It is through his famous poems that Owen reflects on the four terrible months that he lived through. He conveys the experience of war, the death, the destruction, and the filth through a unique poetic language and a bold artistic vision.

This anthology collects forty-nine of Owen's iconic poems and serves not only as a perfect introduction to his verse but also as a commemoration of the sacrifice that was made by an entire generation of young men.

Wilfred Owen

Wilfred Owen MC was one of the leading English poets of the First World War. He volunteered on 21st October 1915. He saw a good deal of front-line action: he was blown up, concussed and suffered shell-shock. At Craiglockhart, the psychiatric hospital in Edinburgh, he met Siegfried Sassoon who inspired him to develop his war poetry.

He was sent back to the trenches in September, 1918 and in October won the Military Cross by seizing a German machine-gun and using it to kill a number of Germans.

On 4th November he was shot and killed near the village of Ors. The news of his death reached his parent’s home as the Armistice bells were ringing on 11 November 1918.
