CHAPTER TWELVE

now that all his rich relations have died and he has become a man-about-town, he tries to look like a poet. It's his passion for avoiding the obvious.'
`Isn't that rather obvious in itself?'
`Extremely, I should say. But then where are you to stop? As soon as it becomes rather obvious to avoid the obvious, then it begins to become rather obvious not to avoid it, and so on. Most difficult and circular.'
`Yes, I see.'
`It's like the differences in the classes.'
Reginald considered this and said, `No, you're too difficult for me. I'm from the country.'
`Well, the lower-classes behave in a certain way, and the middle-classes have a whole lot of rules to distinguish them from the lower-classes, and the upper-classes have a whole lot of rules to distinguish them from the middle-classes; the result being that the upper-classes find themselves behaving just like the lower-classes again. Another circle.'
`Example, please.'
`Oh, that's not fair on the spur of the moment - but, well, take family life. The lower-classes simply ooze family. None of them would dare to speak disrespectfully of Uncle Alfred. If Liz marries Bert, she marries Uncle Alfred too. So does Lady Elizabeth, if she marries Lord Herbert. But in the middle-classes you
find people becoming more and more independent of the family. Or here's an easier one. When one of Bert's relations drops in, Liz offers her a nice glass of port wine. Middle-class calls it port. But the good old crust• ed families say "port wine" again.'
`Good,' said Reginald. `And, taking it a step further; Royalty says "port".'
`Probably. Anyhow, Royalty's definitely middle-class
