Establishes the family dynamic which later led to his orphaning, his ultimate decision to migrate, as well as to the emotional and intellectual tension that propelled John into the cosmos of English poets. The boys are sent to a liberal school in Enfield at an early age, but their father dies in a riding accident after visiting them. Their mother quickly remarries and abandons the children to their grandmother. The mother slides through brandy and disease to her early death. The situation makes the children extremely close, John calling George his “greatest friend.”
