«Brown Studies» — Poems by G. P. Brown, Punta Arenas, Chile, 1940

This small collection of poems is a period-piece, set at at an early stage in the Second World War. Although published in Chile, its values and perspectives are British through and through. These poems embody the fears, attitudes and loyalties typical of British expatriates living in Southern Patagonia at the time. [We should like to trace the author's next of kin.]
