Leslie Charteris' foreword to THE SAINT GOES ON

I am rather well aware that the Saint Saga is somewhat noticeably sprinkled with a large number of allusions to the British Public School, the Public School Man, and the Public School Spirit, and that all of these allusions are so conspicuously devoid of proper reverence that it begins to look as if I might have a complex on the subject. But I had to re-read the next story in our collection, which plays the same tune with more than ordinarily concentrated consistency, to realise that the time might be coming when some astute reader would be liable to pounce on me for an explanation of this violent prejudice. Whereupon I also realised that I should also have to be very cautious in my choice of the explanation I gave, since a study of what I proudly call my fan mail statistics reveals that a large percentage of my most faithful readers are either past or present members of some British Public School. The more deeply I pondered the various horns of this dilemma, the more clearly I saw the fact that there was positively no explanation I could give (since any definitive explanation must, a priori, involve a statement of my own personal opinions on several broad but very ticklish subjects) that would not be doomed to expose me to the undying hatred of just about as many readers as it would deathlessly endear me to. And I therefore hereby give notice that any future questions addressed to me on the subject will be tactfully but ruthlessly ignored. But since on this one occasion something inescapably had to be said about it, I have taken refuge in that sublime genius for equivocation and diplomacy which was so tragically stolen from the world of politics when my first publisher accepted my first novel. I propose, as my last public utterance on the matter (until next time) to tell a very short story which is also scripturally true. This was during one my last months at one of the Public Schools which we are talking about. The class was devoted to the study of English – a language which, to judge by the curriculum, and the hushed whispers in which it was referred to, became extinct quite early in the nineteenth century. The crucial point was an exercise in composition, on some dreary subject, such as An Appreciation of the Humour of Shakespeare’s Clowns. Feeling, at the time, somewhat full of oats, I had ventured, for perhaps the first time in my academic career, to kick over the traces of what my British Public School considered to be the inviolable commandments of respectable English prose. I was waggish and disrespectful. I pulled the wisecrack and the long nose. I cannot say that I wrote anything that would have held any interest for the passionate commentator; on the other hand, I am equally sure that nobody else in the class did, either. But I am no less certain – even after so many years – that any editor of any popular publication would have read more than the first paragraph of it; which is more than he would have read of any of the other theses submitted. Returning my opus to me, with many indignant bluepencillings of my choicest epigrams, and with the lowest marks at his disposal written in the largest figures that there was room for, my instructor peered at me over his spectacles and said severely: ‘My advice to you, Charteris, is to confine yourself to the subject you are supposed to be studying, and get rid of the idea that you are starting on some sort of literary career of your own.’
