Wilfred Owen Week

25/10/2006
Although it irritates me somewhat that the BBC uses the entertainment section of its news website to trail some of its programmes, pretending that the reports are real news, I was interested to see this report of Radio 3’s plans for a Wilfred Owen week following rememberance day. I vividly remember reading some of his war poetry at school–“Dulce Et Decorum Est” most vividly–and hearing Britten’s War Requiem, which uses some of Owen’s work, in Edinburgh’s Usher Hall when I was a first year student at university. Should be worth while tuning in to.
