This review is from: The Short Sharp Life of T.E.Hulme (Hardcover)
This was the first biography of T.E.Hulme i have read and also the first of Robert Ferguson's creations i have had the pleasure of reading.My interst in Hulme's works was sparked by research into my own family tree on the internet.Discovering such a fine poet,philosopher and social thinker carrying my family name came somewhat of a suprise but non-the-less a pleasant one.Hulme(among others) was indeed,i feel,a catalyst for monumental change in poetry and philisophical though in the twentieth century.Not only was he a great thinker,but also through the work of Ferguson we discover a vibrant and colourfull young man with emense durability of intellect and the drive and will to carry this through.This book is well written and i feel greatly indebted to Ferguson for the lengths he must have gone to in researching this book and the for phenomenal body of information which he so carefully grafted into such a fine portrayal of Hulme's life and works.I spyed this book as i was putting books out on the shelves at work and as much to say,it didnt quite get there,i snapped it up for myself.
A worthwile read for all thsoe interested in Hulmes life and his works.
Thank you Robert Ferguson
