This chapter explores the war poetry of Ivor Gurney. Gurney's memory is separated from himself, potentially with its own disruptive volition. He identifies with Hamlet's predicament, and his letters are dotted with passing allusions to the play. Gurney also remains unequalled among soldier-poets in the degree of self-scrutiny performed by his memory.
