A Handful of Dust

Notes and references

Notes

  1. ^ Hastings observes that Waugh's diaries date the writing of the story to between 12–14 February. She believes that although Waugh may have begun the story in Boa Vista, it unlikely that a story of this length and complexity could be completed in two days. She adds that the story incorporates events that occurred after Waugh left Boa Vista.[23] For example, on his way back from Boa Vista Waugh spent eight days at the St Ignatius Mission in Bon Success, where he records that he found novels by Dickens in the Mission library, and read Dombey and Son and Nicholas Nickleby "with avid relish".[24][25]
  2. ^ In his introduction to the 1997 Penguin edition of A Handful of Dust, Robert Murray Davis argues that the novel's vision is bleaker than that of the poem, the last lines of which suggest some hope of future salvation. The novel, says Davis, "rejects even that faint consolation".[42]
  3. ^ On 3 October 1954 the American television series General Electric Theater screened an adaptation of "The Man Who Liked Dickens", entitled "High Green Wall". Joseph Cotten played the trapped explorer; Ronald Reagan was the series host.[96]
