The book suggests, well-annotated, walks in his native county, to help towards a deeper understanding of his life and his genius.
But Ivor Gurney was also a gifted musician and this is emphasised in this excellent little book. He wrote beautifully crafted, English, folk songs. I followed the guide to recordings of these songs, and the journey was well worthwhile.
As an introduction to this, to me, little known poet, 'Ivor Gurney's Gloucestershire' was excellent, and led me to read, not only his anthologies, but to search out recordings of his music.
If the aim of a book is to stimulate an interest in looking more deeply at its subject, this book succeeds beautifully.
