Wilfred Owen : a new biography by Dominic Hibberd( Book )
44 editions published between 1965 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,395 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

"This up-to-date edition contains all Owen's published war poems, a selection from his lyrical work and extracts from his letters. The material is arranged in a roughly chronological order so that his development may be followed from his declarations of poetic independence in 1913 to his last and finest poem, Spring Offensive in 1918. The text of the poems has been thoroughly revised from the British Museum manuscripts. The Introduction, notes and appendices provide new information while catering for the interests of general reader and student." -- Book jacket

The winter of the world : poems of the First World war by Dominic Hibberd( Book )
7 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 211 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"--Page xxxv
Harold Monro : poet of the New Age by Dominic Hibberd( Book )
10 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 191 libraries worldwide
'The book is a 'who's who' of everyone who wandered through the corridors of Georgian, Imagist and Modern poetry...You know this is a well-written biography because you turn the pages in haste, wanting to know what happened next, and you care about the main protagonists. The book is full of details that you won't have read elsewhere. Monro has been almost forgotten, except by those who take a special interest in this brief period of 20th century letters. Dominic's book should make it less likely that future generations will forget Monro's role in promoting poetry.' - Friends of Dymoch Poets Newsletter '...absorbing...a gripping account of a man at war with himself...meticulously researched...combines clarity, compassion and an engaging dry humour.' - Sunday Times '...beautifully written...just the right amount of sympathy and insight...Hibberd's ability to establish Monro as a seminal figure...is impressive.' - Choice (USA) '...fascinating.' - Scotland on Sunday
