This book contains a 41 page study of Wilfred Owen by Edmund Blunden, which concentrates mostly on his war years and time spent at Craiglockhart (with Siegfried Sassoon). This is followed by 59 poems, including Dulce et Decorum Est, Strange Meeting, Anthem for a Doomed Youth and Futility. A fine collection.
A good copy. There is some mottled fading to the boards, and the spine is slightly sunned. The introduction has a few inoffensive pencil marks to the margins. The main body of text is in good, clean condition, the binding secure but a little pulled at pp64/65. Previous owner's name to front pastedown.
