Not About Heroes


This story is about the real life relationship between poets Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon. The story of their friendship is told in a series of flashbacks, narrated by Sassoon. Most of the scenes take place during their time as fellow patients at Craiglockhart War Hospital, near Edinburgh. "This book is not about heroes. English poetry is not yet fit to speak of them . . . My subject is war, and the pity of war. The poetry is in the pity."
