The Poems of Wilfred Owenby Wilfred Owen, Douglas Kerr (Introduction), Publishing Company Contemporary (Editor)
Of all the work bequeathed to us by that generation of young men who fought in the trenches, Owen's is the most remarkable for its breadth of sympathy and its understanding of human suffering and tenderness, at home and on the battlefield.
