Lord Archibald Wavell is remembered today largely for his military career, and tenures as the commander-in-chief of the British Indian Army and the penultimat3e viceroy of India, removed from office abruptly after he lost of the confidence of all Indian po9liticians and his own government in London. But while his viceroyalty is generally seen as having been largely unsuccessful, the same cannot be said of his life as a writer.
First published in 1944, during the darkest days of the war, Lord Wavell's great anthology of English poetry - enhanced by his own introduction and annotations - encouraged and delighted many thousands of readers.
It has remained in print every since, proving beyond doubt that, whatever the fashion of the day, poetry can fulfill its ancient function, finding its way to the hearts of the many, not only to the minds of the few.
“…Other Men’s Flowers Continues to be a vibrant, living look, to which one turns in anticipation in times of joy, and for solace.”--- T.N. Chaturvedi
