There's nothing new I can say about Owen's exquisite poetry that hasn't been said over the last almost - one hundred years. It's beautiful; it evokes haunting images; it breaks the heart. That he was killed in France 7 days before the hideous War to End All Wars ended is itself the most heartbreaking of all.

Think of any war that you know something about, and Owen's poetry fits it, too.
