When Wilfred Owen was killed in action on November 4, 1918, just a week before the ending of the First World War, the English language and the world lost a great poet. This fine edition of Owen's poetry contains all of his war poems, for which he is now known, as well as his early works and poems on subjects other than the war. The slim volume has a short biographical sketch by Edmund Bluden, who was a great poet of World War I himself, and also an insightful introduction by C. Day Lewis, the editor of this edition. It is interesting to compare the quality of Owen's war poetry with poems he wrote just a few months prior to going to the front. The war, despite its ugliness and horrors, matured Owen as a poet. Many of his poems on the war, contained in this volume, are now classics of the genre. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in being introduced to this wonderful and haunting figure of English poetry.

Owen never lived to see the world created by the war. These poems are sometimes abstract, often painful, lurid, bitter, or lyrical, and always a light on his thoughts and feelings as he goes from a young man in peacetime to a bitter old soldier in four years.
