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". Owen was killed in action on 4 November 1918 during the crossing of the Sambre–Oise Canal, exactly one week (almost to the hour) before the signing of the Armistice and was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant the day after his death.

Talk about Poems

Nearly all Owen’s poems are well crafted, and most are outstanding. Don’t think you know his poetry by the few that are known. I find myself enjoying many in this book that I have not seen elsewhere. I’d recommend Owen’s poems for their masterful use of phonetics, something that is sorely missing in many twentieth-century English-language poets. Some poems in here are not “mature,” and maybe Owen may have never wanted them published, but even these contain beautiful turns of phrase.

This edition is also excellent for someone who loves Owen’s poetry but doesn’t care about every alternate version or other products of Stallworthy’s research. That being said, each poem is lightly annotated, and the date and location of its writing is noted. Also, Stallworthy describes what other poems Owen pays homage to, borrows from, or is inspired by, and I have found many other wonderful poems by Harold Monro, Percy Shelley, and Tennyson that inspired Owens through these notes.
The First World War produced many poets. Outstanding amongst these was Wilfred Owens whose poetry exposes the horrors of trench warfare rather than the "glory". The reader can almost see and hear the shells bursting over the lines and witness the carnage. Anyone who wants a true picture of the effects of war on the soldiers should read this book.
This is an amazing book. The poetry is outstanding & it gives real insight into a young man surrounded by war & death. It is a book I will read again & again.
The brilliance of this First World War poet exposes the lie of war!
This is a wonderful selection of Owen's poetry.
What a shock!
