Poems of Wilfred Owen (85 Edition)by Wilfred Owen
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Of all the work bequeathed by 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. This new, authoritative edition, indispensable to student and general reader alike, contains the texts of 103 poems and twelve fragments, among them thirty-three poems not previously published or otherwise available in paperback edition. Many of the most famous have important new readings; illuminating notes and a detailed biographical table are also included.
Derived from Jon Stallworthy's two-volume (1983)--described as a "triumph" () and "a definitive text" ()--this is the finest single-volume edition of the work of the greatest poet of the First World War.
