Owen, Wilfred (1893-1918), was a British poet known for his poems about World War I (1914-1918). His collection of poetry, Poems (1920), places him high among the soldier poets. His poetry reflected with painful clarity the agony and ugliness of war. In Owen's verses, assonance, rather than rhyme, creates the poetic effect. Assonance is characterized by combinations of words that have like vowel sounds.
