From the cover: “George was born into a world of village cricket matches and fox-hunting, but his failing income and the onset of war threatens his way of life. A touching depiction of pre-First World War Britain, Memoirs of a Fox-Hunting Man is also a coming-of-age story which follows George from a shy and awkward childhood, through shiftless adolescence, to an officer just beginning to understand the horrors of trench warfare. Written after Sassoon’s return from the First World War but looking back at happier times, Memoirs of a Fox-Hunting Man was published anonymously in 1928. Already established as a poet, this was Sassoon’s first attempt at fiction — and Faber’s first bestseller.”

Light reading creases to the spine.Description: Signed by the author on the title page "To David, with the best of Glosapsoz wishes. Tony Boden" - unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. From the cover: “The story of F.W. Harvey’s war is in itself remarkable. Joining the 5th Battalion of the Gloucestershire Regiment only days after war was declared, he was among the first Territorials to land in France. As a Lance-Corporal he was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal for ‘conspicuous gallantry’ and was commissioned shortly afterwards. But Harvey was more than just a tough soldier. He was a poet of considerable distinction, a contemporary of Owen, Sassoon and Thomas. Published on the seventieth anniversary of the end of the First World War and the centenary of Harvey’s birth, this biography contains many of the poems, including the world-famous ‘Ducks’. Illustrated with over fifty photographs, it is a fitting tribute to Harvey and to the 5th Glosters who marched by his side, which will be coveted by all who love his poetry and | j by those interested in the history of the First World War.”Notes: Size: 8½" x 6". 359 pages.

Francis Warner's Poetry: A Critical Assessment by Glyn Pursglove (£11.50)Publisher: Colin Smythe — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0861402715]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges.Description: From the cover: “The poetry of Francis Warner is unlike that of any of his contemporaries in its blend of passion and scholarship. It is the work of a mind steeped in the great traditions of poetry — work that is learned and allusive, but simultaneously intense in its lyricism.

Glyn Pursglove, author of an earlier study of Warner’s plays Francis Warner and Tradition, provides a detailed account of this fascinating body of work, demon strating both its indebtedness to tradition and its profound originality. In a manner both scholarly and sensitive he clarifies the complex craftsmanship of Warner’s major poems and demonstrates the extraordinary formal inventiveness which characterizes so much of his work.

Central to Francis Warner’s achieve ment as a lyrical poet are several remarkable sequences of love poems. These are here afforded a poem-by-poem examination so that readers will find their pleasure in them enhanced by these meticulous and lively studies.

For all his attention to the detail of the poems, Glyn Pursglove does not neglect the larger themes that give continuity to Warner’s work. The reaffirmation of biblical and classical concepts of love — not just as a scholarly exercise but felt in the blood — is at the heart of all of his work as a poet and as a dramatist. It was perhaps inevitable that a poet so steeped in the lyrical forms of the Renaissance (the canzone, the madrigal, and above all the sonnet) should eventually turn his atten tion to Verse Drama. This study closes fittingly with two lengthy chapters de voted to Warner’s verse plays Moving Reflections and Living Creation, theatrical and poetic explorations of love and creativity set in the age of the Gospels, and Renaissance Florence.”
