Wilfred Owen : a new biography by Dominic Hibberd ( Book )
18 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 799 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When Wilfred Owen died in 1918 at the age of twenty-five, only five of his poems had been published, yet he was to become one of the most popular poets of the twentieth century. He is now Britain's national poet of the Great War, and his work speaks to many young people more powerfully than any other poetry. Dominic Hibberd's new biography, based on more than thirty years of wide-ranging research, brings new information and reinterpretation to virtually every phase of Owen's life--carefully guarded by family and friends after his death. Mr. Hibberd sheds fresh light on Owen's family background, education, and struggles with religion. That he was gay is fully discussed for the first time. His army training and experiences on the Western Front in World War I are described in vivid detail, using original documents from military archives. Throughout the story the poet steadily develops, from his early devotion to Wordsworth and the Romantics in 1910-1911, through his discovery of the French Decadents in 1914-1915 and his friendship with Siegfried Sassoon in 1917, to the final, superb achievement of his mature 1918 poems. The Great War's greatest poet emerges as a complex, fascinating, and often endearing character, with a strong sense of humor and an intense delight in life

Harold Monro : poet of the New Age by Dominic Hibberd ( Book )
8 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Troubled by his complex sexuality, Monro was a tormented soul whose aim was to serve the cause of poetry. Hibberd's revealing and beautifully-written biography will help rescue Monro from the graveyard of literary history and claim for him the recognition he deserves. Poet and businessman, ascetic and alcoholic, socialist and reluctant soldier, twice-married yet homosexual, Harold Monro probably did more than anyone for poetry and poets in the period before and after the Great War, and yet his reward has been near oblivion. Aiming to encourage the poets of the future, he befriended, among many others, T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound and the Imagists; Rupert Brooke and the Georgians; Marinetti the Futurist; Wilfred Owen and other war poets; and the noted women poets, Charlotte Mew and Amma Wickham
The winter of the world : poems of the First World war ( Book )
5 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The present book is the first anthology of Great War poetry to make a serious attempt to present poems in chronological order. There are six sections, one for each year from 1914-1918 and one for the post-war decade, each prefaced by a historical outline to give a context for the poems. Inevitably, not all the dates are known, so we have not always kept strictly to chronology within each year: civilians are sometimes separated from soldiers, because their experiences of the war were necessarily very different, and sometimes poems by the same author are grouped together"--P. xxxv
