Green, Leonard. Dream Comrades and Other Prose Sketches. Blackwell, Oxford, 1918.

A curious book. Much has been made of Uranian poets (see Timothy D'Arch Smith's Love in Earnest) but this is a book of essentially Uranian prose. Green writes little vignette stories which attempt to meld together the beauties of God, Gloucestershire and Adolescent Boys - with a fair smattering of pagan romanticism thrown in for good measure. This may well form the basis for one of my next publications. A bargain I think on ebay for £60 - retails at about £200.
