Wilfred Owen

Guy Cuthbertson

Yale University Press

“Oxford” became a banned word to Wilfred Owen when he was denied the privilege of entering the school. Owen often thought of Oxford, and while it made him positively angry, he imagined himself studying there. Keats’s association with Oxford added to its attraction and Owen believed that Oxford would have helped his poetry.
