David Blaize is E. F. Benson's delightfully nostalgic novel of English public school life. Benson follows young David Blaize from his time at preparatory school to his entry to the sixth form at Marchester College. The novel draws heavily on the author's own schoolboy experiences when at Temple Grove and then Marlborough College. Benson, better than most writers in this genre, memorably evokes the trials and tribulations of life in an English public school during the late Victorian period. The pages resonate with wit and humour. The reader is invited to follow young Blaize as he deals with eccentric masters, experiences halcyon days on the cricket field, frets over dreaded parental visits, and experiences personal growth through a platonic friendship with Maddox, a senior boy at Marchester ... This is a newly edited and corrected version of the text. It contains a specially commissioned introduction as well as explanatory notes by Craig Paterson.
