December 20, 2006: Waugh on sudden wrath - 0 Comments

"The words were not well chosen; lame or sound, Guy was not built to inspire great physical fear, but sudden wrath is always alarming, recalling as it does the awful unpredictable dooms of childhood; moreover Guy was armed with a strong stick which he now involuntarily raised a little."

- Waugh, Men at Arms, 1952.
