Wilfred Owen

Guy Cuthbertson

Yale University Press

At 21 years old, Wilfred Owen was convinced that he had an artistic temperament and the need for self- expression. Worried that too much teaching was going to kill his poetry, he wanted to take some time off to escape and concentrate on his poetry. At that time, Owen’s literary interest focused more on dead writers and their works. At his request, Wilfred received Shelley’s Complete Poetical Works and noted that he and Shelley had similar temperaments.

Keywords:   Wilfred Owen, artistic temperaments, self-expression, poetry, Shelley
