Selected Poems of Ivor Gurney, Paperback

Selected Poems of Ivor Gurney Paperback

Part of the Oxford Poets S. series


Ivor Gurney (1890-1937) now takes a place among the English poets.

His range is wide, including the First World War, in which he served as an infantry private, the passionate celebration of his native Gloucestershire, and fears of the mental imbalance which led to his eventual confinement in a mental hospital.

Out of these experiences, he made a poetry unique, vigorous, musical, and direct.

This selection of over 150 of his poems, was made by the poet P.J.

Kavanagh from his edition of the "Collected Poems of Ivor Gurney".

It is reissued now, with a few corrected readings, and with a Chronology and Introduction to Gurney's life, by P.J.
