"I, too, saw God through mud,-" says Owen in his Apologia Pro Poemate Meo this is England's greatest war poet at his best and each poem in this collection shines like a polished gemstone in sunlight.

With his life cut tragically short Owen's eminence as a poet was entirely posthumous. Speaking from beyond the grave the power of his words seemed to take on the quality of a slain angel railing not against the enemy but against war.

Unique, almost, in his approach Owen tried to depict the suffering, caused by war, from all sides. Changing viewpoint across battle lines and not even neglecting to draw the pain felt by those left behind Owen has remained a favourite ever since his poetry first appeared.

Inspirational in tone, resonating with yearning and hope Owen's poetry is a timeless ode to life and living.

This new, Cool Publications anthology featuring 21 of his most powerful poems seeks to capture some of the essence of the poet's mind and chart the trajectory of his work before it was cut tragically short.
