Anti-England, Anti-Stoic

Following class discussion on Ford Maddox Ford's Parade's End Dr. Ogden has posted an article which can also be used to understand a different perspective of The General and to regard the view that Stoicism is not necessarily viewed as positive by all. In fact, many view Stoicism as a negative characteristic of Britain at this time. C.S. Forester certainly was successful in capturing mindset of Curzon and his steely emotionless resolve. This article from Arts & Letters Daily manages to capture feelings that run contrary to Curzon's views on suppressing emotion and maintaining a Stoic mentality until the end.
