The historical importance in Edwardian-era literature, art and aesthetics of the tragically abbreviated life of T.E. Hulme (1883 – 1917) is highlighted in this 1960 literary biographical study by Alun Jones, formerly lecturer in English at University of Hull. Hulme was raised, like so many at the time, in a severe, Victorian middle-class home (think Ivy Compton-Burnett novels) and subsequently rebelled during two stints at Cambridge where he managed to study Mathematics and Philosophy before being removed in 1904 for an “escapade” during a boat-race night.
