A collection of poems (including war poems) by Alexander 'Alec' Raban Waugh (1898-1981), author & poet, older brother to Evelyn Waugh. Alec Waugh garnered renown and no small amount of societal disapproval for his first book, The Loom of Youth, its frank consideration of homosexuality in public schools causing quite a stir upon its release. This was the first time the subject had been mentioned, and Waugh's name was removed from the roll of old boys at Sherborne School as a result, much to the distress of his father, another Old Shirburnian, who nevertheless defended his son loyally.
