Wilfred Owen was born near Oswestry, Shropshire, where his father worked on the railway. He was educated at the Birkenhead Institute, Liverpool and Shrewsbury Technical College.

He was tutoring in the Pyrenees when war was declared and enlisted as shortly afterwards.

In 1917 he suffered severe concussion and 'trench-fever' whilst fighting on the Somme and spent a period recuperating at Craiglockart War Hospital, near Edinburgh. It was he that he met Siegfried Sassoon who read his poems,... more »

    Seriously, this is why Humboldt County is a joke! This stinks to high Heaven. An ex-felon kills someone running away with a stolen gun, he hides evidence and gets off with nothing? The supposed robber's family should appeal and make every one involved pay for this entire murder and cover up. Do you want earn money without investing money? That’s how I started this job and Now I am making $200 to $300 per hour for doing online work from home.Apply Now here............self21★★★

Best Poem of Wilfred Owen

Exposure

4 Worried by silence, sentries whisper, curious, nervous,
5 But nothing happens.

6 Watching, we hear the mad gusts tugging on the wire.
7 Like twitching agonies of men among its brambles.
8 Northward incessantly, the flickering gunnery rumbles,
9 Far off, like a dull rumour of some other war.
10 What are we doing here?

11 The poignant misery of dawn begins to ...
