Wilfred Owen was a soldier who fought in World War I  

 

He was tragically shot dead at the age of 25 - just a week before the end of the war! 

 

He wrote many poems that showed the reality of war - to highlight how awful conditions were for the soldiers.

 

The poem 'Exposure' describes what life in the trenches was like for the soldiers, and the impact of the bitterly cold weather conditions  in which they had to live.

 

You might find it useful to have your Power and Conflict anthology to hand so that you can refer to the poem.

 

Also, you might find it useful to jot down some notes as you work through the activities, so that you can use them for revision.
