The Ordeal of Ivor Gurney, [Gurney] Hurd, Michael
40 [Gurney] Hurd, Michael The Ordeal of Ivor Gurney
Oxford Oxford University Press 1978 0192117521 / 9780192117526 Hardcover Very Good Book 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall 
Published in 1978 The Ordeal of Ivor Gurney is a moving and extraordinary account of a tragic genius penned by the composer Michael Hurd. Born in Gloucester in 1890 Ivor Gurney began writing songs and poems in his teens, taking his inspiration from the Severn Valley countryside where he grew up. Sent to the Western Front during the First World War, Gurney experienced desolation and horror that made a profound impression on him. He ended his days in an asylum, but at his death in 1937 he was beginning to be acknowledged as one of England's finest composers. Still, it took several more decades for his work as a war poet to be fully appreciated. Previous owners name on ffep and dj price clipped, otherwise a VG hardback copy. Fading on spine of dust jacket.
