Wilred Owen’s Poetry

As part of our “Literature – Critical Study” unit, we will study poems written by Wilfred Owen.

Before you begin to read and analyse his poetry, it is very important that you have some understanding of the important contextual information that surrounds Owen’s poetry.

It is important that you do not refrain from searching for analyses of his poems on the internet, as it is important that you can develop the skills and understandings necessary to analyse the poems yourself. With this in mind, please use only the material you find on this blog.

Here are the learning targets for this unit as well as the key terms (a useful exercise would be to make a copy of this page and write your own definitions, examples and explanations of these terms as we go through the unit).
