Sherston’s Progress is the final book of Siegfried Sassoon’s semi-autobiographical trilogy. It is preceded by Memoirs of a Fox-Hunting Man and Memoirs of an Infantry Officer. The book begins with Sherston’s arrival at ‘Slateford War Hospital’ (based on Craiglockhart War Hospital). The famous neurologist W. H. R. Rivers is a major character in the book, having a profound influence on Sassoon in real life.
Sherston eventually returns to the army and is sent to Palestine and Ireland (where he is introduced to ‘The Mister’, an alcoholic, eccentric millionaire) and finally the Western Front in France. There he is shot in the head, survives and returns to recover in London, where he meets Rivers and sees the armistice celebrations.—Wikipedia. [Suggest a different description.]
Author Bio for Sassoon, Siegfried
Siegfried Sassoon (1886-1967) was a British author and poet. His notoriety began as a war poet, writing first hand from the trenches of the western front where he fought as a soldier in the army. His bleak realism was ignored at the time unlike other patriotic poets but achieved better recognition after the war. His later poetry began to echo his spiritual searches which eventually led him to convert to Catholicism in 1957. He also achieved success in prose writing. He published a semi-autobiographical trilogy: Memoirs of a Fox-Hunting Man (1928), Memoirs of an Infantry Officer (1930), and Sherston's Progress (1936). He also published an autobiography, The Old Century and Seven More Years (1938) which was his own personal favourite. (Oxford Companion to English Literature).
