Abstract:

Letters and manuscripts by and relating to Wilfred Owen, including seven letters written by Owen to Sassoon, Nov. 5, 1917 to Oct. 10, 1918; 21 letters from the poet's mother, Mrs. Susan Owen, to Sassoon, 1921-1933; 28 letters written by the poet's brother, Harold Owen, to Sassoon, 1921-1957; two letters written by the poet's cousin, Leslie Gunston, to Sassoon, 1921, and Edmund Blunden, 1930; three letters from the Owen scholar, Denis S.R. Welland, to Sassoon, 1950; and two letters from Chatto & Windus and Oxford University Press to Sassoon, 1946 and 1965. The letters written by Owen to Sassoon date from shortly after Owen left the Craiglockhart War Hospital to a few weeks before Owen's death on November 5, 1918, and cover the period of Owen's greatest achievement as a war poet; they have been published in the COLLECTED LETTERS OF WILFRED OWEN, 1961, edited by Harold Owen and John Bell.

The letters written by Mrs. Owen contain a great deal of information about her son, his manuscripts and papers, and the preparations for the 1931 edition of the POEMS edited by Edmund Blunden. The Harold Owen letters cover a wide range of subjects are of particular interest for the information about the writing of his book, JOURNEY FROM OBSCURITY: MEMOIRS OF THE OWEN FAMILY. There are also three poetry manuscripts in the collection: autograph manuscript of "The Blind" (published as "The Sentry"), 37 lines, 2pp., September 1918; autograph manuscript of "Spring Offensive," 18 lines, 1 p., September 1918, early draft of the poem as published in POEMS, 1920, edited by Sassoon; and autograph manuscript of "Shadwell Stair," 16 lines, 1 p., ca. November 1917.
