When Wilfred was born, his parents lived in a comfortable house owned by his grandfather, Edward Shaw. After Edward's death in Januaryand the house's sale in March,  the family lodged in the back streets of Birkenhead. There Thomas Owen temporarily worked in the town employed by a railway company.
Thomas transferred to Shrewsbury in April where the family lived with Thomas' parents in Canon Street. Owen discovered his poetic vocation in about  during a holiday spent in Cheshire.
He was raised as an Anglican of the evangelical type, and in his youth was a devout believer, in part due to his strong relationship with his mother, which lasted throughout his life. His early influences included the Bible and the "big six" of romantic poetryparticularly John Keats.
Owen's last two years of formal education saw him as a pupil-teacher at the Wyle Cop school in Shrewsbury. In return for free lodging, and some tuition for the entrance exam this has been questioned[ citation needed ] Owen worked as lay assistant to the Vicar of Dunsden near Reading living in the vicarage from September to February During this time he attended classes at University College, Reading now the University of Readingin botany and later, at the urging of the head of the English Department, took free lessons in Old English.
His time spent at Dunsden parish led him to disillusionment with the Church, both in its ceremony and its failure to provide aid for those in need.
There he met the older French poet Laurent Tailhadewith whom he later corresponded in French. For the next seven months, he trained at Hare Hall Camp in Essex.
He fell into a shell hole and suffered concussion; he was blown up by a trench mortar and spent several days unconscious on an embankment lying amongst the remains of one of his fellow officers.
Soon afterward, Owen was diagnosed as suffering from neurasthenia or shell shock and sent to Craiglockhart War Hospital in Edinburgh for treatment. It was while recuperating at Craiglockhart that he met fellow poet Siegfried Sassoonan encounter that was to transform Owen's life.
Whilst at Craiglockhart he made friends in Edinburgh's artistic and literary circles, and did some teaching at the Tynecastle High Schoolin a poor area of the city.
In November he was discharged from Craiglockhart, judged fit for light regimental duties. His 25th birthday was spent quietly at Ripon Cathedralwhich is dedicated to his namesake, St. Owen returned in Julyto active service in France, although he might have stayed on home-duty indefinitely.
His decision to return was probably the result of Sassoon's being sent back to England, after being shot in the head in an apparent " friendly fire " incident, and put on sick-leave for the remaining duration of the war.
Owen saw it as his duty to add his voice to that of Sassoon, that the horrific realities of the war might continue to be told. Sassoon was violently opposed to the idea of Owen returning to the trenches, threatening to "stab [him] in the leg" if he tried it.
Aware of his attitude, Owen did not inform him of his action until he was once again in France. At the very end of AugustOwen returned to the front line - perhaps imitating Sassoon's example. On 1 October Owen led units of the Second Manchesters to storm a number of enemy strong points near the village of Joncourt.
For his courage and leadership in the Joncourt action, he was awarded the Military Crossan award he had always sought in order to justify himself as a war poet, but the award was not gazetted until 15 February On the company commander becoming a casualty, he assumed command and showed fine leadership and resisted a heavy counter-attack.
He personally manipulated a captured enemy machine gun from an isolated position and inflicted considerable losses on the enemy. Throughout he behaved most gallantly. His mother received the telegram informing her of his death on Armistice Dayas the church bells in Shrewsbury were ringing out in celebration.
Poetry[ edit ] Owen is regarded by many as the greatest poet of the First World War,  known for his verse about the horrors of trench and gas warfare.
He had been writing poetry for some years before the war, himself dating his poetic beginnings to a stay at Broxton by the Hill when he was ten years old.Index of English and Welsh Lunatic Asylums and Mental Hospitals Based on a comprehensive survey in , and extended to other asylums.
