WWI War Poet Wilfred Owen dies

4th November 1918

Wilfred Owen was a British poet and soldier, one of the leading poets of the First World War. His shocking, realistic war poetry on the horrors of trenches and gas warfare was heavily influenced by his friend Siegfried Sassoon and sat in stark contrast to both the public perception of war at the time, and to the confidently patriotic verse written earlier by war poets such as Rupert Brooke. He was killed in action at the Battle of the Sambre, just a week before the war ended.
