The definitive single-volume edition of the work of the greatest poet of the First World War 2018 marks the centenary of the end of the First World War. This is the definitive single-volume edition of Wilfred Owen's poems, whose death in battle a few days before the Armistice was the most disastrous loss to English letters since Keats. Containing the texts of all the finished poems of Owen's maturity and twelve important fragments and with extensive notes, it derives from Jon Stallworthy's monumental edition of The Complete Poems and Fragments and is aimed at the student and general reader alike. `Others have shown the disenchantment of war, have unlegended the roselight and romance of it, but none with such compassion for the disenchanted or such sternly just and justly stern judgment on the idyllisers.'
