Book Description

A very good copy of the first edition. Laid in is a letter from the author dated, February 9th 1978, where he writes about Gurney and mentions the forthcoming biography. "Behind the name Ivor Gurney lies the tragic story of a composer and poet whose life seemed full of promise, but who, like Hugo Wolf and John Clare, ended his days in a lunatic asylum. When he died in 1937 he was just beginning to be acknowledged as one of England's finest song composers. But it is only in recent years that his stature as a war poet has been fully appreciated." xiipp. 230pp, 13 illustrations.
