The Burning Spear

Search

Being the Experiences of Mr. John Lavender in the Time of War.


Recorded by: A. R. P--M, [John Galsworthy]


Note:


John Galsworthy said of this work: "The Burning Spear was revenge of the nerves. It was bad enough to have to bear the dreads and strains and griefs of war." Several years after its first publication he admitted authorship and it was included in the collected edition of his works. D.W.


"With a heart of furious fancies,
Whereof I am commander,
With a burning spear and a horse of air
In the wilderness I wander;
With a night of ghosts and shadows
I summoned am to tourney
Ten leagues beyond the wide world's end
For me it is no journey."
--Tom O'Bedlam
