Owen, a poet who fought and died in WWI, is best known for "Dulce Et Decorum Est." He is excellent at haunting imagery (“froth corrupted lungs”) and has a good ear (“Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots,/But limped on, blood-shod…”). This is the first time I’ve read a poetry book straight through—generally I open pages randomly and read whatever I find, and digest the whole thing over the course of months or even years. This collection is an excellent historical document, but too heavy (and heavy-handed) to read for its own sake. ( )
