Description

A collectible new Penguin Classics series: stunning, clothbound editions of ten favourite poets, which present each poet’s most famous book of verse as it was originally published. Designed by the acclaimed Coralie Bickford-Smith and beautifully set, these slim, A format volumes are the ultimate gift editions for poetry lovers. Poems is Wilfred Owen’s only volume of poetry, first published posthumously in 1920 and edited by his friend and mentor, Siegfried Sassoon. Owen is regarded as one of the best poets of World War I and composed nearly all of his poems in just over a year, between August 1917 and September 1918. Owen was virtually unknown at the time of his death, yet his poetic account of a soldier’s experience of war has shaped our impression of the horrors of the Western Front. This collection includes the well-known ‘Anthem for Doomed Youth’ and ‘Dulce et Decorum Est’.
