The Wilfred Owen Association

Wilfred Owen (1893-1918) is widely recognised as one of the greatest voices of the First World War.

His self-appointed task was to speak for the men in his care, to show the 'Pity of War'. Owen's enduring and influential poetry is evidence of his bleak realism, his energy and indignation, his compassion and his great technical skill. The Wilfred Owen Association was formed in 1989 to commemorate Wilfred Owen's life and work.
