Gurney writes poetry rooted in his cotswold landscape, recollecting it amongst the turmoil and disorder of the trenches. He relates more to the predicament and pity of his comrades than to the general horror of war. Unlike Owen and Sassoon he makes no general points about the terrible conflict.

I was very impressed with his work and saddened by his last years in an Asylum.

A few good poems, as I understand them, but a large number failed to get me enthused> as a First World War poet I had expected more poems about the war but all the time his head appeared to be elsewhere. Not one of our greatest.
