But Patricia Craig has done her job too well. Beneath the surface jollity, this is a slightly melancholy book
But Patricia Craig has done her job too well. She has not only found a classic bit of Kingsley Amis from one of his best, but lesser known, books (What Became of Jane Austen?), but she has rescued an equally good bit of Evelyn Waugh from one of his worst, A Little Learning. Beneath the surface jollity, this is a slightly melancholy book. The history of English education (and it is English, by and large, not British that Patricia Craig deals with) is not something that fills the heart with pride. The 'dreadful schism' brings out the worst of the English in both sectors: a sacrifice of high standards to dogma and meanness.
