The man from the trenches keeps the spell.
on 20 January 2013
Wilfred Owen is the poet to choose if you want to capture the feeling and impressions of life for an officer who is close to the front line in France and Belgium during the First Workd War, and who returned from convalescence to the Western Front. More poignant still, he died in action as the war dwindled to its end.
His poetry has sympathy for all involved in the action, showing feelings of fear, futility and empathy with the enemy who suffered the same privations. Read this book, and appreciate a poet of true ability who conveys meaning so clearly and effectively.
