I saw some of Owen’s work in class, but it was a while ago and I can’t really recall it. However, his tragic end just before the armistice stuck with me, especially since his poems are very anti-war.
Poetry in the Little Black Classics has not been the easiest for me. However, I found this edition very powerful – perhaps because it didn’t dwell so much on the usual poetic topics.
