This may not be exciting news to everyone, but it certainly is to me! A professor of art history at UTexas (Austin) has a study of Farrer, focusing on his Buddhism, to be released in January. Details here:
And a link to the book blurb itself (from which I stole the cover illustration):
The Modern Culture of Reginald Farrer
Landscape, Literature and Buddhism
Less exciting, or at least not exciting in a good way, is the fact that this paperback carries a price tag of $99 (*gulp*). I will need to pitch all my spare change in a jar until January to afford it.
The blurb says that the book will consider, especially, three works: In Old Ceylon, which happens to be next up on my reading list; The Void of War, which I have in reprint; and the verse drama Vasanta the Beautiful, which I do not have but which is available in pdf from the Hathi Trust (which I may be able to read online in an annoying load-each-page separately fashion).
One hopes that Charlesworth will give at least a nod to Farrer's second novel, The Sundered Streams, which owed a lot to his brush with Buddhism just before or possibly during his conversion and includes a lengthy lecture from a Buddhist abbot visiting England.
Here's hoping that this will be the first pebble in an avalanche of Farrer-related doings in the run-up to the centenary of his death in 2020.
