First published in 1943, T. R. Glover's reminiscences of his Cambridge world depict university life in the late nineteenth century. Looking back over the centuries of Cambridge, Glover describes how the university and its colleges first came into being - a result, he says, of 'the interplay of human needs, human passions and human hopes.' He recalls the colourful characters he met, from his tutor at St John's College - 'at once a terror and a delight' - to the many outstanding scholars and teachers who educated and influenced him. Glover captures the essence of undergraduate life as he knew it, which perhaps, as he says, had not fundamentally changed in three centuries. This book provides a fascinating glimpse into a bygone age which will still resonate with the modern reader.
