Let us mark today, the centennary of the declaration of World War 1 with the poet who gave us the three monumental words the old lie on the gracefulness of dying for king and country, the poet Wilfred Owen.
He was killed in the last week of the war and below is the preface he never got to see himself on print. Words on the necessity of the artist because his words are needed, which are sadly no less relevant today. His words are accompanied here with the light of hope's stubbornness and the insistence of revelation by Juan Zero:
