About Wilfred Owen
Wilfred Owen’s friendship with fellow soldier-poet Siegfried Sassoon helped him find the direction he wanted his poems to take. Widely regarded as one of the First World War’s top poets, his experiences and observations while on active duty influenced his works. Unlike his contemporaries at the time, Owen’s poems did not glorify the wars but rather highlighted the inhumane nature of trench and gas warfare.
He was raised alongside his three younger siblings. His parents’ names were Susan and Thomas Owen. His brother, Owen, later became his biographer.
Besides five of his poems, all the others were published after he had died. Amongst his popular poems are:
- “Dulce Et Decorum Est”
- “Anthem for Doomed Youth”
- “Strange Meeting”
- “The Parable of the Old Men and the Young”.
He died in action on 4 November 1918, a week before the Armistice, which signalled the end of the First World War, was signed. He was only 25 years old.
