'For a young and unknown Oxford graduate to publish an account of the Pre-Raphaelite movement in 1926 is in itself remarkable [...] The Pre-Raphaelites, at that time, would have been thought too awful to mention [...] Waugh was not merely a pioneer, he was a lone voice crying in the modernist wilderness.' From the Postscript.
