Oxford satires

In 1946, Michael Thwaites returned to Oxford to complete his studies under the Rhodes Scholarship – but he returned as a man with a wife, two children, and six years of naval war service behind him. Oxford in 1946 had many such students, and much had changed since 1939.

He rejoiced in the return to a privileged academic life, and during that period contributed a series of satirical but appreciative poems to the monthly Isis, the university magazine.
