OWEN- A MASTER OF METAPHORICAL VARIETY

 
Wilfred Owen is known for his master of metaphorical variety and 
assonance. His most consistently brilliant device is slant rhyme, 
otherwise known as half rhyme. He is also the first poet to ever use 
pararhyme.  
 
Pararhyme is achieved by matching the initial and final consonants 
of words while altering the vowel sounds. His poetry is that of a romantic
embellishment and is an intensity that border on parody.
