This is the definitive single-volume edition of the work of the greatest poet of the First World War, whose death in battle a few days before Armistice was the most disastrous loss to English letters since Keats. Containing the texts of all the finished poems of Owen's maturity and twelve important fragments, with extensive notes, it derives from Jon Stallworthy's monumental edition of the Complete Poems and Fragments (1983) and is aimed at the student and general reader alike.
A handsome edition of Owen's poems published to mark the centenary of his birth
