Summoned by bells

Betjeman, John1960
Books, Manuscripts
... 'Summoned by bells' is this autobiography and it is in verse, the clear, accomplished, captivating, unabashedly musical verse ... As a narrative it is the touching story of a boy's growth to early manhood - a receptive boy's reactions to Edwardian middle-class life and social occasions, seaside vacations, the excitement of visits to the family factory ... the typical gaucheries of the public school ... and Oxford, in a series of sparkling character sketches of the great and near great.
