Who Wrote?

22nd April 2005 at 01:00
1 "I'll have them read me strange philosophy And tell the secrets of all foreign kings; I'll have them wall all Germany with brass And make swift Rhine circle fair Wittenberg; I'll have them fill the public schools with silk Wherewith the students shall be bravely clad."

2 " It was the hour for sums. Father Arnall wrote a hard sum on the board and then said: Now then, who will win? Go ahead, York! Go ahead, Lancaster!

Stephen tried his best but the sum was too hard and he felt confused...

The bell rang and then the classes began to file out of the rooms and along the corridors towards the refectory. He sat looking at the two prints of butter on his plate but could not eat the damp bread. The tablecloth was damp and limp. But he drank off the hot weak tea which the clumsy scullion, girt with a white apron, poured into his cup."

3 "Educated: in the holidays from Eton."
