His poetry is a powerful and often moving statement against modern war. Owen was shell-shocked and hospitalized during the war (where he became a friend of Siegfried Sassoon), but his sense of social responsibility took him back to the trenches, where he was killed in the last week of the war.

Williams study of Owen is divided into three sections. The first, Life, describes Owens upbringing and his developing political conscience. In Poetry she gives individual commentary on his most important poems, and in Breaking Ranks she explores moral attitudes on war - particularly those held by women. She also demonstrates the way Owens work continues to influence other twentieth century war poets.
