Mapping Golgotha

A selection of poems and letters

A selection of the poems and letters of Wilfred Owen, the iconic poet of WW1. Edited by Jeremy Hooker and illustrated with engravings in two colours by Harry Brockway. An edition limited to 200 numbered copies in a quarter calfskin binding with printed cloth sides, and titled blind on the spine.

WILFRED Owen's war writings are renowned for their bleak realism, indignation and compassion. All these elements are evident in this selection of his letters and poems, which represent his maturity as a poet and letter writer, later to be recognised as not only a major poet, but as the iconic English poet of World War I. Wilfred Owen joined the Artists Rifles as a Private in 1915, and was commissioned as second lieutenant in the Manchester Regiment in 1916. In the following year he was sent to Craiglockhart Hospital near Edinburgh, suffering from shell-shock. It was here he met Siegfried Sassoon, and there is no doubt that Sassoon's example inspired him to write angrily and realistically about the war. The writings chosen for this selection were completed, and most entirely written, in the creative burst that followed this experience. He was killed in action on 4 November 1918.
