Comments:
"English author Newbolt (1862-1938), a celebrated man of letters at the turn of the century, is today most often typecast as the leading jingoist of the Edwardian age, not unlike Kipling was until recently. Jackson, a great-granddaughter of Newbolt, presents a reexamination of the man, his poetry, and their historical context." Book News, Inc.
