The Rest I’ll Whistle. A dance to the music of time. A Question of Upbringing. At this distance of time I cannot remember precisely what sort of an overcoat Widmerpool was said to have worn in the first instance. Stories about it had grown into legend: so much so that even five or six years later you might still occasionally hear an obtrusive or inappropriate garment referred to as ‘a Widmerpool’; and Templer, for example, would sometimes say: ‘I am afraid I’m wearing rather Widmerpool socks today’, or, ‘I’ve bought a wonderfully Widmerpool tie to go home in’.

Anthony Powell's universally acclaimed epic encompasses a four-volume panorama of twentieth century London. Hailed by Time as brilliant literary comedy as well as a brilliant sketch of the times. I stopped between each novel in the series to read other authors. Each time I switched to someone else, the prose seem ragged and imprecise compared to Powell's. The Dance kept calling me back.

The first three novels from the brilliant Dance to the Music Of Time sequence. Anthony Powell's magisterial twelve-novel sequence chronicles the lives of over three hundred characters, seen through the eyes of Nick Jenkins as the nation changes over the decades. This unique and unparalleled evocation of life in 20th-century England is unrivalled for its scope, its humour and the enormous pleasure it has given to generations.

This affectionate life of Anthony Powell succeeds in restoring the reputation of the witty postwar novelist. There is, immediately, a debate about A Dance to the Music of Time, Powell’s principal claim to fame, a work that has not worn well. Powell’s social comedy is realistic, based on closely observed contemporaries. Unlike Wodehouse, for example, whose lunatic Eden is timeless and untroubled by the 20th century, Powell’s milieu has come to seem dated, its texture threadbare and its colours faded. He is not a moralist like Orwell, nor a great satirist like Waugh. He lacks Greene’s Manichean ferocity. He is, perhaps, too true to himself to be in the company of those big beasts.

Powell found inspiration for the title and form of his opus in Nicolas Poussin’s painting A Dance to the Music of Time, which depicts the Four Seasons dancing to music played by Father Time. The novels focus on social behaviour; all characters are dealt with objectively, as they would wish to appear to outside observers. Personality and motivation are revealed through minute and subtle analysis of disconnected incidents
