Owen (Wilfred) Poems, first edition, 1920.
Item Details
Description
Owen (Wilfred) Poems, first edition, portrait frontispiece with a few spots to margin, tissue guard, light browning to title, browning to endpapers, short split to upper hinge but holding firm, original cloth, light discolouration to spine ends but paper label to spine still very bright, corners bumped, sm.4to, 1920.

⁂ The most important book of poetry from the first world war. The power of Owen's poetry is as significant today as it was when first written, under the encouragement of Siegfried Sassoon (who wrote the introduction to this posthumously published collection), in the trenches of Flanders, mostly in 1917 and 1918. Owen was killed one week before the armistice was signed in 1918.
