Owen, Wilfred: Poems V2. 22nd Dec 2012

From Wikipedia

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.


This Collection

This collection was put together by Siegfried Sassoon in the early 1920s. Some of the poems do not appear in their exact modern form. Most of these differences are, however, fairly minor. Also, given Owen's unfortunate death any 'final' version is always going to be somebody else's view regarding what he 'meant' or 'wanted'. This was Sassoon's as of c.1920.

V2 The Preface is now correctly formatted as poetry rather than prose, an error resulting from an astrological alignment between a formatting quirk in the PG original and my own purblindness. Some other minor errors have also been corrected.

Second version with some quite significant corrections. I would like to thank fellow member medard for bringing these problems to my attention.
