Owen has now taken his place in literary history as perhaps the first, certainly the quintessential, war poet. Jon Stallworthy is Professor Emeritus of English at the University of Oxford, and a Fellow of the British Academy and the Royal Society of Literature. He has published many volumes of poetry, and several biographies and works of literary criticism.
