Entry updated 4 January 2019. Tagged: Author.
(1876-1954) UK author, almost exclusively on cars and the motoring industry; his spoofish Satire, Malice in Kulturland (1914 chap), bases its mild deprecations (uttered just as World War One begins) on Lewis Carroll's Wonderland books, with W Tell's illustrations executed in the mode of the recently deceased John Tenniel (1820-1914). Wyatt is at his sharpest in his references to a character named Blonde Beast, a figure clearly prepared to commit atrocities on behalf of the Nietzschean Fatherland. [JC]
