Bertie Wooster v. Christopher Robin - Rattlebag and Rhubarb

During WW2 the comic writer P.G.Wodehouse was called a traitor and condemned by A.A.Milne. His innocence was later proven but by then it was too late. Wodehouse exacted his revenge in his fiction.

What ho! George Orwell and Cancel Culture - Rattlebag and Rhubarb

The humorist P.G.Wodehouse - interned by the Nazis in 1940 - found himself cancelled in the 1940s because of some lighthearted radio broadcasts. He lived with the stigma of Nazi sympathizer for the rest of his life. George Orwell had some very sane observations and put the situation in political perspective.

About Isms He was Never Wrong: George Orwell at the Café Royal - Rattlebag and Rhubarb

George Orwell had an interesting chance encounter with a blasé conspiracy theorist at the Café Royal in 1940. (See left). The young man is in the grip of a dangerous fallacy. As always with autocracy and totalitarianism, Orwell nails it. The fallacy is to believe that under a dictatorial government you can be free inside. Quite a number of people console themselves…Continue Reading→

Falling Wall - Rattlebag and Rhubarb

I began this post in 2017. The original focus was Louis MacNeice’s’s poem “Brother Fire”. MacNeice was a fire-watcher during the London Blitz which meant that he spent nights on rooftops watching for, and reporting, fires caused by incendiary bombs. The poem expresses a human kinship with the destructive power of fire: O delicate walker, babbler, dialectician Fire, O enemy…Continue Reading→
