Wilfred Owen

Wilfred Owen was an English poet and soldier. After school he became a teaching assistant and in 1913 went to France for two years to work as a language tutor. He began writing poetry as a teenager and in 1915 he returned in England. He was born on 18 March 1893 in Oswestry, Shropshire and he was killed on 4 November 1918 while attempting to lead his men across the Sambre canal at Ors.

Wilfred Owen was the eldest of four children, he had two brothers and a sister. He held great compassion and sought to be of service to others. He was a healer, and capable of giving comfort to those in need, he would frequently offer a shoulder for others to cry on.

I think that Wilfred Owen stays alive in the memory of people for many reasons. He wrote a lot of poems during the war and these poems are some of the best in the world because he shoped us the fear of a person who is in a war. Some of these amazing poems, is Dulce Et Decorum Est, Anthem for a Doomed Youth and Asleep.

I believe that Wilfred Owen always be a memorable person to me and to a lot of other people. He was a very good person because he was a healer and helped other people. He was a very good poet and I admire plenty of his poems and I think that it was very difficult and risky to write poems during a war.
