Abstract:

"[The author] has here woven the two major parts of Annals of Innocence and Experience together with an equal amount of material which has never been published before. The volume is divided into four parts: The Innocent eye, which formed the first part of the Annals, tells of his boyhood on a farm in Yorkshire. A War Diary consists of long extracts from letters, hitherto unpublished, written during the first World War, from camp and from France, to a correspondent at home . . . The Falcon and the Dove, which follows, is Part II of the Annals."
