About the Author

Jane Potter is a senior lecturer and researcher at Oxford Brookes University. She is the author of Boys in Khaki, Girls in Print: Women's Literary Responses to the Great War, 1914-1918 and The Selected Letters of Wilfred Owen. Jon Stallworthy is Professor Emeritus of English at the University of Oxford, as well as poet and literary critic. He has edited several anthologies and is particularly known for his work on war poetry.


"A visually stunning book. . . . In Wilfred Owen: An Illustrated Life, Potter pairs an in-depth biography alongside integrated photographic and archival material, much of which has never been in print. This slim but versatile book would serve well as an introduction to Owen for undergraduates as well as a selective resource for academics interested in the poet's life and writing process."-- "ELT Journal" (12/15/2015 12:00:00 AM)
