Wilfred Owen died in 1918 during the last week of World War I, at the age of 25. Guy Cuthbertson, in a new 350-page book from Yale University Press, confirms this. He also spends some time analyzing the juvenilia Owen managed to produce before he got himself killed. This is something like the twelfth full-dress biography Owen has received in the last 50 years. He was handsome.
