Wilfred Owen : a new biography by Dominic Hibberd( Book )

24 editions published between 2002 and 2019 in English and held by 819 WorldCat member 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
Owen the poet by Dominic Hibberd( Book )

27 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 748 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wilfred Owen's poetry is now very widely known as the finest that came out of the First World War. But much about the poet and his work has not been fully understood. In this critical study of Owen, Dominic Hibberd discusses the significance for his poetry of many scarcely known elements in his life: his battle with Revivalism; his discovery of the French Decadence; his alleged cowardice; his shellshock and its treatment; his homosexuality and his friendship with Oscar Wilde's followers
Poetry of the Great War : an anthology, with an introduction, notes, and biographical outlines( Book )

18 editions published between 1985 and 2002 in English and held by 682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'...This is much more than merely another anthology...Hibberd and Onions are thorough...the notes they provide are excellent, brief, explicit and provocative in the best ways.' Notes and Queries This anthology gives a wider, more accurate and thought-provoking view of British 1914-18 poetry than has been available from previous collections. The Introduction gives a scholarly, stimulating account of the immense and varied mass of verse generated by the First World War. The work of nearly 100 poets (some famous, others long-forgotten) is arranged thematically and notes on the poems and poets are detailed.--Amazon.com

"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."--Jacket

Wilfred Owen : the last year 1917-1918 by Dominic Hibberd( Book )

12 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story begins with Owen's return from the Front as a shellshock case in June 1917. At Craiglockhart War Hospital in Edinburgh he underwent a remarkable course of 'sociological' therapy and met Siegfried Sassoon, who started him on that brief year of war poetry. Through Sassoon he met Robert Graves, Robert Ross, Osbert Sitwell, and other literary figures. He spent the winter at Scarborough on light duties, but the crisis on the Western Friont in March 1918 meant that every man was needed and he was sent to the huge camp at Ripon to get fit. Many of his best poems were written at Ripon, as he contemplated the 'inwardness of war' and his own likely fate. Then, after an umpleasant period in the Scarborough barracks, he went to France and was in the vanguard of the Fourth Army when it broke through the last German defences. In 1918 he found himself as a poet and in the end as a soldier."--Jacket
The First World War by Dominic Hibberd( Book )

9 editions published between 1981 and 1990 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Great War was the first in British history to involve virtually the entire population of Britain. A vast quantity of poems, fiction, essays, speeches, letters, memoirs and other written material was produced during 1914 and 1918 and Hibberd chooses both famous passages and excerpts which have never before been reprinted, from both the imaginative poetry and prose of the period, and documents such as newspapers and politicians' speeches. The linking commentary illuminates the very close relationship between the literature and history of this time, which is further highlighted by the chronological table, plates section and further reading sections
Harold Monro : poet of the New Age by Dominic Hibberd( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Troubled by his complex sexuality and the fear of death, Harold Monro was a tormented figure whose aim was to serve the cause of poetry. Dominic Hibberd's revealing and beautifully written book will help rescue Monro from the graveyard of literary history and claim for him the recognition he deserves. Poet and businessman, ascetic and alcoholic, socialist and reluctant soldier, twice-married yet homosexual, Monro probably did more than anyone for poetry and poets in the period before and after the Great War, and yet his reward has been near-oblivion. This first-ever biography, meticulously researched and drawing on much unpublished material, shows how his famous Poetry Bookshop and associated publishing enterprises grew from the Utopian ideas of H. G. Wells and other prophets, and from experience of freethinking communes abroad." "Monro aimed to find and unite the poets of the future. At the Bookshop, as in his own highly individual poetry, he was non-partisan, befriending, among many others, T. S. Eliot, whose Criterion Club met regularly above the shop; Ezra Pound and the Imagists; Rupert Brooke and the Georgians; Marinetti the Futurist; Wilfred Owen and other war poets; and the noted women poets Charlotte Mew and Anna Wickham. Monro was the founding editor of three leading periodicals, including The Poetry Review, and was responsible for the ground-breaking anthology Georgian Poetry."--BOOK JACKET
The winter of the world : poems of the First World war by Dominic Hibberd( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member 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
