History of an Autumn [ePub]

by Christopher Morley

Published in 1938, this is a short collection of essays dealing with the approach of the Second World War. In it, Morley details the average person who doesn't realize war is on the horizon. He also argues for the creation of a place where war can be fought on a daily basis for those so inclined so as to keep the rest of the world from it.
Morley is sometimes sarcastic in his descriptions of everyday life on the eve of war, which makes his thoughtful sentences all the more interesting.

"So, with their usual hankering for simplification, men tried to blame worldwide stupidities as the fault of one man."
"Having failed, perhaps, to say what we mean, we struggle loyally to mean what we said."
