Recordings of Richard Burton reading poems at Wilfred Owen Story

7th August 2012

Categories: News

An extremely rare recording of the great actor Richard Burton reading Wilfred Owen poems has been donated to The Wilfred Owen Story. The LP, entitled The Days Of Wilfred Owen, was discovered in America by an old boy of The Birkenhead Institute. The recording dates from the early 1960s and shows how highly esteemed the Birkenhead educated war poet was, as Burton was the biggest star in the world then.

The actor’s delivery of Owen's lines has been described as the greatest in history, and is a very powerful and historical recording.

There will be a full playing of The Days Of Wilfred Owen on Friday 17 August at 12 noon at The Wilfred Owen Story.
