Anthem for Doomed Youth (1914-1918)
Wilfred Owen was killed in action on 4 November, 1918, during World War 1, a week before the Armistice. He was 25.
Wilfred Owen is, perhaps, the greatest of the Great War poets.
Anthem for Doomed Youth is one of his best-known poems.
“My subject,” he said, “is War, and the pity of War. The Poetry is in the pity.”
Robert Tanitch’s short and moving film is an in memoriam to Wilfred Owen and the 8.5 million killed during the Great War.
