Book Description

First published in 1988, this annotated selection of Wilfred Owen’s poetry and prose provides a comprehensive one-volume text of his best work. As well as the war poems, it includes illuminating early pieces such as ‘Impressionist’ and ‘Little Claus and Big Claus’, which illustrate Owen’s early command of satire and narrative. The prose includes Owen’s well-known draft Preface and a wide range of his letters, showing the devotion he felt for his mother, his poetic development after meeting Siegfried Sassoon, and, above all, his war experiences. With a detailed introduction and helpful commentary, this timely reissue will be of particular value to A-Level and undergraduate students with an interest in the work of Wilfred Owen, his contemporaries, and the context of the First World War.
