Dulce Et Decorum Est

Dulce Et Decorum Est book cover.

To mark the Armistice centenary illustrator Martin Impey illustrates one of the greatest war poems ever written, Wilfred Owen’s searing polemic, Dulce et Decorum Est.

Released on October 24th Impey draws on Owen’s words in a vivid and dramatic way. With a Foreword by Dr Jane Potter and endorsed by Owen’s nephew, the late Peter Owen, the book includes Owen’s four original drafts. Impey’s powerful depiction serves to remind us, just as Owen intended, of the tragedy and futility of urban warfare.
