Exclusion and Outsiderdom in the poetry of Wilfred Owen

Project: Research

Project Details


My ongoing research is into the impact on Wilfred Owen's poetry of the central theme of taking the stance of an outsider, as well as seeking to become part of small elite cliques with privileged understanding. This affected not only his writing and his reputation during his lifetime, but his reception in the decades after his death, as well as being central to his influence on poets such as W.H. Auden and Cecil Day Lewis.
