Jonathan doesn't like Robin, the English master at his boarding school. It's not his inability to control his classes that he dislikes, nor even his incompetence as a teacher - it's his complete indifference to the feelings of anyone but himself. Nevertheless, Jonathan is stunned when it's announced that Robin has been found dead - drowned in the river close to the school. The coroner rules that it was suicide, but Jonathan soon comes to have reasons for doubting this . . .

Excerpt from A Midsummer Memory: An Elegy on the Death of Arthur Upson Arthur Upson, whom the following poem com memorates, was drowned from his boat in Be midji Lake, Minnesota, in the early evening of August 14, 1908, in the thirty-second year of his age. A lyric, just written, found in the empty boat, is the swan song referred to in stanza XLV I of the elegy. He had that very day com pleted a poetic drama entitled Gauvaine of The Retz, dealing with the Pornic legend of Gold Hair; but the manuscript disappeared with him and has never been found. During some ten years of literary activity, he published half a dozen volumes of verse and since his death his collected poems have appeared in two large vol umes. Before his passing, recognition had come to him from distinguished critics and he was known to the few who treasure good poetry; thepublishing of his collected works has already begun to secure the wider hearing his song de serves.
