Background of the poet.
Wilfred Owen was born in 1893 in Oswestry,
Salop of Anglo-Welsh parentage.
The World War broke out in 1914; Wilfred joined the Britain army in 1915 and
had a long experience of trench warfare at its dirtiest level.
Few days to the end of the war, Owen, without knowing that the war is to end
and went to fight in order to help his fellow men.
He died in the course of the war on the bank of the Oise- Sambre Canal, near
Ors in Northern France on 4th November, 1918.
Background of the Poem.
Since Wilfred Owen died in the course of the war, this confers a special
emotive touch can be gleaned, a touch of one who knew what he is talking
about and could be easily believed.
The lines are concentrated in the emphasis of first – hand knowledge and
transcend the bitterness of what he experienced.
In May 1916 -17, he was shell – shocked and was invalided for months at
Edinburg. It was while he convalesced at the Craig Lockhart War Hospital that
he wrote many of his war poems.
