Wilfred Owen's Voices

The language which was utilized by the Owen family may be pieced together across two distinct sources. The first of these is the Collected Letters of 1967 which involves 631 letters that are addressed to the different members of Owen's immediate family, while the second is the three different volumes of Journey from Obscurity which was written by Owen's brother Harold that contained several accounts about the family. Although the chapter cannot claim that these sources indeed provide accurate images of the Owen family, it still draws heavily from these sources as these still serve as fundamental evidence. This chapter looks into the background of the Owen family, the characteristics of the family members, and the situations in which they lived.
