Wilfred Owen Tea Towel
Wilfred Owen Tea Towel
"All a poet can do today is warn. That is why the true poets must be truthful."
And Wilfred Owen certainly wanted to be truthful: through his work, he aimed to tell the truth about what he called ‘the pity of War’ – the physical and mental trauma of combat. Widely recognised as one of the greatest English poets of the First World War, Owen wrote from the perspective of his intense personal experience of the front line in poems such as 'Anthem for Doomed Youth’ and ‘Dulce et Decorum Est.’ In the latter, he rejected the much quoted Latin proverb ("it is sweet and fitting to die for one's country") as "an old lie", contrasting starkly with that of writers such as Rupert Brooke who sought to praise a soldier's patriotic duty.
