Of all the poets of the First World War, Wilfred Owen most fires the imagination today. This biography is more than a simple account of his life - the childhood spent in the backstreets of Birkenhead and Shrewsbury, the appalling months in the trenches - it is a poets enquiry into the workings of a poets mind. This paperback reproduces all the widely praised illustrations of the original edition, including drawings by the poet and facsimile manuscripts of many of his greatest poems. As a portrait of the artist, the book has proved, as the Scotsman predicted, indispensable to any student of Wilfred Owen's life and work.
