For many Wilfred Owen is the greatest war poet , his gritty realism and honesty has won him countless admirers since his tragic death just one week before the war ended. His preface proudly illustrates the role of a poet in War. “This book is not about heroes. English Poetry is not yet fit to speak of them. Nor is it about deeds or lands, nor anything about glory, honour, dominion or power, except War. Above all, this book is not concerned with Poetry. The subject of it is War, and the pity of War. The Poetry is in the pity. Yet these elegies are not to this generation, This is in no sense consolatory. They may be to the next. All the poet can do to-day is to warn. That is why the true Poets must be truthful.”
