CHAPTER XIII
THE EARLY TWENTIETH CENTURY

the affection he bore for his native Wessex, his heart was buried in the churchyard at Stinsford, his own parish.
Three years younger than Hardy, Charles Montagu Doughty, 1843-1926, a clergyman's son, a distinguished scholar, and a highly original writer, won a high place, if not a wide popularity, by his enormous. work Travels in Arabia Deserta. Doughty, having studied Arabic at Damascus, spent two years wandering among Bedouin tribes, whose manners and customs he studied and whom he doctored from his store of simple Western remedies. Later he laboured for nine years on Dawn in Britain. Some readers find him obscure to the point of dullness, but by other critics he is praised as the master of a style at once rich and subtle, vigorous and erudite.
Another English poet whose works are usually regarded as difficult of approach is Robert Bridges, 1844-1930. A Kentishlnan and the son of a country squire, Bridges was educated at Eton and Oxford, and studied medicine at St Bartholomew's Hospital. At the age of thirty-seven he relinquished the physician's calling to devote himself to that of the poet. Another of his passions was music, and at his Oxfordshire country home he trained the village choir. Chosen Poet Laureate in 1913, he made no attempt to earn the now metaphorical butt of malmsey by composing odes in honour of royal or national anniversaries or events, but worked upon his own lines, in accordance with his own highly individual views of art. His masterpiece, The Testament of Beauty, was published when he was eighty-five. Like Hardy, he received the Order of Merit.
Very different is the restrained and lucid genius of Alice Meynell, 1860-1922, who, born of a learned
