In this 1920 Vanity Fair essay, Siegfried Sassoon (1886 - 1967) went to some length listing the names of all the World War I poets he had found admirable. With his highest praise reserved for Sir Osbert Sitwell, Sassoon gave good, firm pats on the back to the likes of Robert Nichols, Edmund Blunden, Rupert Brooke, Julian Grenfell, Francis Brett-Young and his fellow trench-dweller Robert Graves. Near the end of the article he mentions the one man we were expecting:

"The war poems of Wilfred Owen have, so far, only appeared in 'Wheels; 1919' the anthology of a group of writers with whom he had little in common. But when his collected poems appear he will take a high place among the soldiers who protested bitterly against the waste and brutality of war."
