Worcester (Hardback)

Jonathan Bate


A fascinating portrait of one of Oxford University's most-loved and most beautiful colleges. Myth and fact are not always easy to separate in Worcester's history. This book is for anyone who wants to know why Worcester casts its special magic, and indeed for casual visitors, for readers intrigued by a very unusual Oxford College, and for anyone interested in Worcester's people - from the architect and collector George Clarke to the opium-eater Thomas de Quincey to spymaster Masterman to the dons, the staff and the students who have enlivened the College in more recent times. It is a portrait of the College in the true sense of the word: not an academic history, but an impression of the place, its people and its customs.
