Product Description


Kerrr is a relative newcomer, but his lines of thinking are so freesh, his readings so thoroughly versed in previous criticism, his analyses so carefully prepared,and his results so convincing, that he vaults himself into contention for the Wilfred Owen Poetry Reading Championship at Dunsden in 1998....Kerr's readings are full of lovely details...his discussions of individual poems have raised the standard for all readings of Owen...By the thoughtful and intelligent detailing of Wilfred Owen's voices, Kerr establishes himself as an individual talentt in the great tradition of Owen critics, and, more importantly, establishes Owen as a modernist writer whoseee extraordinary authority steems from more than his authentic death. (Review of English Studies)

'This new book has something fresh to say about the life and work of Wilfrid Owen ... Kerr's meticulous approach gives us a map of Owen's language and the communities from which it sprang. In doing so he has enlarged our understanding of Owen's life and work.'Charles Styles, Border Counties Advertiser

'This is an absorbing book, detailed and often illuminating ... intelligent, scholarly approach.'Roderic Dunnett, Church Times

Douglas Kerr provides a careful and scholarly study of the `discursive fields' from which Owen's poetry is forged...the middle two parts of the book on `Church' and `Army' are particularly valuable in providing historical-linguistic contextualization for Owen's poetry. Here Kerr has been assiduous in researching documents that relate to Owen's experience...We are given valuable histories and historical contextualization in the book... (Modern Language Review)

Stallworthy and Hibberd provide important information for which we must all be grateful; Kerr makes no attempt to hide his reliance on both writers. (Notes and Queries)

excellent...Kerr immerses the reader in the languages of Owen's environment and reading, demonstrating how closely interwoven were his senses of various kinds of discourse and of particular speech communities. (English Studies Vol 75 no 6)
