Memoirs of a Fox-Hunting Man

Memoirs of a Fox-Hunting Man

Siegfried Sassoon

The first quantity in Siegfried Sassoon’s loved trilogy, The entire Memoirs of George Sherston, with a brand new creation by means of celebrated historian Paul Fussell

A hugely adorned English soldier and an acclaimed poet and novelist, Siegfried Sassoon received repute for his trilogy of fictionalized autobiographies that splendidly trap the vanishing idylls of Edwardian England and the brutal realities of war.

In this primary novel of the semiautobiographical George Sherston trilogy, Sassoon splendidly captures the vanishing idylls of the Edwardian English nation-state. by no means out of print on account that its unique e-book in 1928, whilst it gained the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, Sassoon's memories approximately formative years and the start of global conflict I are channeled via young George Sherston, whose lifetime of neighborhood cricket tournaments and fox-hunts falls aside as struggle techniques and he joins as much as struggle. Sassoon's first novel, even though rife with comedian characters and a jaunty experience of storytelling, offers his personal lack of innocence and the destruction of the rustic he knew and loved.
