Letter: To Edmund Blunden.

University Of Oxford First World War Poetry Digital Archive
Letter in pen in Ivor Gurney's hand. Hopes that Edmund Blunden will not mind Gurney sending along his work, which has been rejected by the publishers Sidgwick and Jackson / Asks Blunden, as a 'successful poet', for help. This letter was written after Gurney had taken up his Civil Service appointment on 3 July 1922, before he entered the Barnwood assylum in September. Blunden had published 'The Shepherd' in April 1922.
