The Unbearable Saki: The Work of H. H. Munro

Saki is the stated grasp of the fast tale. His writing is classy, within your means, and witty, its tone worldly, flippant irreverence added in astringent exchanges and epigrams extra neat, pointed, and poised even than Wilde's.

Young Thomas More and the Arts of Liberty

What does it suggest to be a unfastened citizen in instances of struggle and tyranny? what sort of schooling is required to be a "first" or major citizen in a strife-filled state?

Sample text

Brobdingnag is a spectacular type of the latter ('He has been married twice, and in the first ardour of youth beat Julie's predecessor to death', p. 292); Pere Fran<;ois of the former ('Eventua11y he sprang up, struggling and stamping about the room, and made believe to fling an antagonist out of the door. He came back and sat down again, looking at me for a long time silently, with an air of most insolent triumph', p. 282). It is, in particular, Lewis's focus on masculinistassertion which makes his eccentrics somehow 'barometrie' representatives of a powerful underlying aggression in sodety at large.

Flint were the first to translate Bergson's 'Essay in Metaphysics' into English (in 1912). From Bergson, in particular, Hulme took the idea of the image as liberation from 'dead' language: 'Creative effort means new images . . The accidental discovery of effect, not conscious intellectual endeavour for it'; 'the creative artist, the innovator, leaves the level where things are crystallised out into ... definite shapes, and, diving down into the inner flux, comes back with a new shape which he endeavours to fix'; images constituted, for hirn, 'the very essence of an intuitive language'; and he wrote: To this piling-up and juxtaposition of distinct images in different lines, one can find a fanciful analogy in music.

Lewis had yet to become the aehieved artist in words. Yet the very easualness of the writing enables hirn to eombine quasiphilosophieal speeulation, personal aneedote, ineisive psyehologieal insight and proto-Imagistie observation in a single brief sketch. His eonstrueted personality beeomes a feature in the stories in a way that never features in Joyee's fiction - even when his persona is at the centre of interest, as in Portrait. 'Lewis' comes over as interesting and stimulating even when his dicta seem outre or his point of view seems to sponsor outrageous personalities.
