The Warden of English: The Life of H. W. Fowler
"Henry Watson Fowler was born in Tonbridge, Kent, in 1858. This is the first full biography of a man whose Modern English Usage has become a classic text known simply as 'Fowler'. It is based on meticulous research from previously unpublished papers, letters, and material from the Oxford University Press archives, and tells the story of his work on The King's English and the Concise and Pocket Oxford Dictionaries, as well as on Modern English Usage, and of his collaboration on some of these projects with his brother Frank." "Against the descriptions of Henry Fowler's work is set the story of a man whose career began as a schoolmaster, but who moved to London, and them Guernsey to develop his career as a writer. Jenny McMorris chronicles the life of a fascinating and colourful figure who, amongst other things, found love and married at the age of fifty, and despite his advancing years enlisted during World War I."--BOOK JACKET.
