Product details

The title of The Undone Years is a line from 'Strange Meeting' by the WWI war poet Wilfred Owen. Owen's poetry combines masterful poetic craft with the most unrestrained imagery and brings home his first-hand experience of the horrors of the Great War. The resulting work is of dark contrasts, exploring the idea of "what might have been", whether death and destruction or renewed life.
