The War Poems Of Wilfred Owen Summary


The War Poems Of Wilfred Owen by Wilfred Owen

The complete and definitive edition of poems from the greatest poet of WW1, Wilfred Owen 2018 marks a hundred years since the end of the First World War. Owen's death in battle, a few days before the Armistice, was a disastrous loss to English letters and left a legacy of the finest poetry that vividly captured the unimaginable horrors of the Great War. This volume, edited by Oxford Professor Jon Stallworthy, gathers together the poems for which Owen is best known, and which represent his most important contribution to poetry in the twentieth century. `The greatest of all the war poets.... it is Owen's intense respect for the soldier that makes his poetry so powerful. Those who did not return have their meticulously maintained stone memorials on the fields of Flanders. But their memorial in our minds is largely built by Wilfred Owen' Jeremy Paxman, Spectator

The War Poems Of Wilfred Owen Reviews


"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." * Guardian, 1920 *
"For me, he is the greatest of all the war poets.... it is Owen's intense respect for the soldier that makes his poetry so powerful. Those who did not return have their meticulously maintained stone memorials on the fields of Flanders. But their memorial in our minds is largely built by Wilfred Owen" -- Jeremy Paxman * Spectator *
