Wilfred Owen (1883-1918)
Le lyrisme à l’épreuve du carnage

  • Publication type: Article from a collective work
  • Collective work: La Grande Guerre des écrivains : études
  • Author: Délas (Dominique)
  • Abstract: The British writer Wilfred Owen, killed at the front in November 1918, left behind a powerfully evocative œuvre. Refusing all patriotic propaganda, he presented the war as a veritable cataclysm. A cry of revolt and a song of mourning, a celebration of those who had fallen, his visionary and musical poetry gets to the heart of the sufferings endured and the questions incited by the carnage.
