Books By Author Wilfred Owen

Anthem for Doomed Youth by Wilfred Owen Anthem for Doomed Youth, Paperback (February 2015)

Presents the true horror of the trenches.

Wilfred Owen by Wilfred Owen Wilfred Owen, Hardback (July 2014)

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.

Three Poets of the First World War by Wilfred Owen Three Poets of the First World War, Paperback (November 2011)

Features such poems as "Anthem for Doomed Youth", "Strange Meeting", "Requiem", "The Silent One", "Break of Day in the Trenches", and "Louse Hunting". This title reflects the disparate experiences of ordinary soldiers in war, and attempts to capture man's humanity in the inhumane of circumstances.

Poems of Wilfred Owen by Wilfred Owen Poems of Wilfred Owen, Paperback (November 1994)

This volume contains all of Owen's best known work, only four of which were published in his lifetime. His war poems were based on his acute observations of the soldiers with whom he served on the Western front, and reflect the horror and waste of World War One.

Author Biography - 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.
