A Dance to the Music of Time: Third Movement
Dance to the Music of Time
In this third volume of 'Dance to the Music of Time, ' we again meet Widmerpool, doggedly rising in rank; Jenkins, shifted from one dismal army post to another; Stringham, heroically emerging from alcoholism; Templer, still on his eternal sexual quest. Here, too, we are introduced to Pamela Flitton, one of the most beautiful and dangerous women in modern fiction. Wickedly barbed in its wit, uncanny in its seismographic recording of human emotions and social currents, this saga stands as an unsurpassed rendering of England's finest yet most costly hour.
Anthony Powell's work includes "Miscellaneous Verdicts" and "Under Review," both available from the University of Chicago Press.
