Ultimately, Blettsworthy is one of many Wells stories about a man haunted — or even trapped — by a mind-bending vision, trying to distance himself from it in order to put its disturbing content into perspective and integrate it with received views of the world. A family solicitor and counselor named Ferndyke advises him to travel in order to recover from disillusionment so severe that it has threatened his sanity. Blettsworthy on Rampole IslandThe Croquet Playerand All Aboard for Araratwritten over a period of more than forty years, continue to bear definitive evidence of Wells's interest in Poe's art.

Caught in delusion, Blettsworthy enters into debate with a shark who scorns reformism. But in case you felt like going to the trouble, I thought I would just pass along a few guidelines. Now, thanks to Peter Owen Publishers, this remarkable book has at long last been relaunched. Sometimes people go through and pull out every bookmark and every piece of paper ever left in the book. The Ape Man, Swine Woman, Leopard Man and other products of his cruelty are a freakish parody of the human race, professing morality while succumbing to their animal cravings. World War I has broken out in the meantime, and having recovered his sanity, Blettsworthy believes that the best thing for him to do is to enlist in the British Army as a private.
