News cuttings and printed ephemera

Scope and Content

This series is principally comprised of news cuttings - articles, news items and book reviews - which reflect DW's research interests during the 1990s. They include cuttings relating to: WO, his work, friends and associates; critical writings on WO by other authors; other war poets; the First World War generally; the writing of biography; and literary archives and manuscripts. There are also some WO-related cuttings which date from the early period of DW's research. These all reflect his principal preoccupations in the 1990s, when he was at work on 'The posthumous life of Wilfred Owen' and drawing on his own experience of WO scholarship during the late 1940s and early 1950s. There is also a small quantity of printed ephemera accumulated by DW, most of which has a WO connection.


The file listed at DSW/1/3/6/1 was compiled by DW himself and has been left intact. The other material was loose and has been placed in two bundles based on format.
