do yourself a favor for the WWI centenary and re-read Owen, Sassoon, et al. Remember how awful it was, how senseless it was, and how it directly led to WWII and changed everything. This is my set poem at school
A Poet of the Great War: Wilfred Edward Salter Owen was an English poet and soldier. He is regarded by many as the leading poet of "the Great War". His work is shocking and realistic with its focus upon the horrors of trench warfare and gas attacks.
