Wilfred Owen, while spending his days in the frontline, described his horrific experiences of the war to his mother in his letters. He also wrote poetry during the war and produced sophisticated, inventive, courageous, and original work. In The Poems of Wilfred Owen, 87 poems were written after Owen’s twenty-first birthday, and Owen features the child and childhood repeatedly in his poetry. In many ways, he was trying to escape his childhood while retaining the child within himself.
