C.E. Montague was an Anglo-Irish commentator and drama critic for the Manchester Guardian (now the Guardian) from 1890, just after his graduation from the University of Oxford, until his retirement in 1925. He was respected as a critic and a literary stylist, and published two novels before the Great War which dealt with the iniquities of the newspaper industry (A Hind Let Loose, 1910) and Irish people and politics (The Morning’s War, 1913).
