  • "Alfred Polly decides to escape the drudgery of his existence by burning down his shop."
  • "Ce roman de 1910 (l'éditeur s'est trompé de ##copyright##) fait partie d'un ensemble disparate (##Kipps##, ##Tono-Bungay## et autres) de récits partiellement autobiographiques qui apportent des éléments socio-psychologiques à l'histoire de la civilisation anglaise de l'époque. Mélange d'humour et de malaise vigoureusement analysé."

  • "Miles away from the fabulous science fiction for which Wells is best known, this comic romp unspools the unlikely story of a timid, financially strapped, unhappily married shopkeeper whose plan to do away with himself fails miserably and in fact inspires him to do something adventurous with his life. Wells himself called this one of my good books.""
  • "The History of Mr. Polly is a 1910 comic novel by H.G. Wells. Alfred Polly is a quiet, timid and direction-less young man living in Edwardian England, in the town of Fishbourne, West Sussex (although the town in the story is thought to be based on Sandgate, Kent where Wells lived for several years). Polly enjoys reading books of knightly endeavours more than his jobs in a draper's shops, and several times his daydreaming mind loses him his job. After the death of his father, a man he had little in common with, he's left a little money in the inheritance and at the funeral he meets Miriam Lark."@en
