Ivor Gurney's poetic career was unusual. It began in 1917 and 1919 with two small volumes of verse (Severn and Somme and War's Embers, published by MidNAG/Carcanet). Then in 1922 he entered the asylum from which only an occasional poem in a magazine emerged. He did not stop writing: Edmund Blunden and Leonard Clark produced selections (1954 and 1973); P.J. Kavanagh produced the Collected and Selected Poems in 1982. Gurney went from small editions to Collected in a single leap. It is worth reconstructing the more conventional process, reinventing books Gurney himself wished to see published in his lifetime. He put such volumes together without hope of publication. Gurney had various titles in mind: Rewards of Wonder, Eighty Poems, The Book of Five Makings and Best Poems. All work towards a statement of his poetic position and come from his viewpoint, not from that of a selector or editor
