Wilfred Owen : Selected Poems Hardback
by Wilfred Owen
Edited by Jon Stallworthy
Part of the Poets of the Great War series
No poetry has touched readers' hearts more deeply than the soldier poets of the First World War.
Published to commemorate the centenary of 1914, this stunning set of books, with specially commissioned covers by leading print makers, is an essential gathering of our most beloved war poets introduced by leading poets and biographers of our present day.
Dying at twenty-five, a week before the end of the First World War, Wilfred Owen (1893-1918) has come to represent a generation of young men sacrificed - as it seems to the next generation, one in unprecedented rebellion against its fathers - by guilty old men: generals, politicians, profiteers.
Owen has now taken his place in literary history as perhaps the first, certainly the quintessential, war poet.
