Carr reported in his History of the QTP (1987) that he had published one impression of his title. Ernest Dowson (1867-1900) was an English novelist, translator and poet. His love for an 11-year old girl was rejected, his parents were consumptives and killed themselves, and he died aged 32S leaving us with memorable phrases such as
Days of wine and roses and
Gone with the wind.
