Infinite Riches

Infinite Riches, Dulwich College poets 1950s to the present day

Infinite Riches is intended to give an overview of the enormous importance attached to the teaching of poetry at Dulwich College. Two major figures of the second half of the last century, both published as Penguin Modern Poets, attended the College. In contrast many of those poets who were to become significant figures in the New British Poetry world which flourished in journals and presses outside the mainstream found their initial interest stimulated within the cultural world that the College had to offer.

Wodehouse's School Days

'Wodehouse's School Days' by Jan Piggott FSA

Wodehouse was at Dulwich College from 1894 to 1900. Between 1902 and 1911, by youthful alchemy, he transformed the primary material of his late Victorian experience at a great new public school into a fascinating body of fiction, now almost neglected in the shade of his more popular books.

The book includes copious material from the Dulwich College Archives, as well as over twenty original illustrations from the school novels and tales.

In the first half of Wodehouse’s SCHOOL DAYS, [Jan Piggott] provides a narrative of the author’s life at Dulwich. Part Two is a fascinating deconstruction of Wodehouse’s school stories and demonstrates his close observances of his fellow pupils, masters and customs.Brian Green

The author, Dr Jan Piggott, FSA, was formerly Head of English and Keeper of the Archives at Dulwich College.
