Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nick Black | 10/10/2013

    " Three stars for the rest of the collection and a fourth star for Owen's overwhelming efforts. This collection represents, in my opinion, the finest English poetic output between Tennyson and Eliot (and Eliot was only kinda English, more Anglo than anything). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leigh | 8/18/2013

    " Good general overview of most of the major WWI-era poets (and a few minor ones). In no way comprehensive--but then it doesn't advertise itself to be. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann Marie | 7/25/2013

    " Obviously not very comprehensive, but an excellent read nonetheless. I can't believe that Charles Hamilton Sorely is not more well-known. His "To Germany" and "When You See Millions of the Mouthless Dead" are excellent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Featherbooks | 4/12/2013

    " A perfect book for Veterans Day reading to remind us of how horrific WWI was for those who fought and any war is for any soldier, a valuable anthology. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Louie | 11/14/2010

    " Very good collection of poems, featuring the very best of humanity surrounded by the worst environment. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zbhall | 8/5/2010

    " I am not really a poetry fan in general. However, these are quite good and very powerful. dulce et decorum est, flanders fields, and many more classics! "

About the Author
Author Wilfred Owen

Wilfred Owen (1893–1918) was an English poet and soldier, one of the leading poets of the First World War. His shocking, realistic war poetry on the horrors of trenches and gas warfare stood in stark contrast both to the public perception of war at the time and to patriotic verse written by earlier war poets. He was killed in action at age twenty-five, just one week before the armistice, and most of his poems were published posthumously. In November 1985, he was one of sixteen poets of the Great War commemorated on a slate stone unveiled in Westminster Abbey‘s Poet’s Corner. His best-known works include “Dulce et Decorum Est,” “Insensibility,” “Anthem for Doomed Youth,” “Futility,” and “Strange Meeting.”
