In 1917, Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon met at Craiglockhart hospital in Edinburgh. Owen was suffering from shell-shock; Sassoon had been hospitalised to avoid the embarrassment of a court-martial for his public anti-war statement. Under the influence and encouragement of Sassoon, Owen’s unpublished work began to take on the form in which it is known world-wide today. Here for the first time, collected in a single volume, are the Edinburgh poems of the two most famous English poets of the First World War.
