Is This Edwardian Writer a Twink?

One of the first things I consider when picking out a new novel to read is naturally the author. When doing so, there is one question I find myself coming back to time and time again, is he a twink? I offer you here an incomplete list of notable Edwardian authors and attempt to arrive at an answer to this vital question.

E.M. Forster

Edward Morgan Forster, author of such  novels as Passage to India, A Room With a View, Howards End, and Maurice was undoubtedly a twink. Like, I don’t really think I need to explain that judgement? Look at him.

George Bernard Shaw

The notable Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw was quite obviously not a twink. He maintained a fairly luxurious beard throughout most of his life for starters and was nowhere near slim enough to earn the status. If anything, Shaw was a bear.

 

 

James Joyce

James Joyce was a one of the most influential authors of the 20th century. His best known novel, Ulysses,  is often considered the defining work of the modernist movement. He was not, however, a twink.

J.M. Barrie

Wikipedia describes J.M. Barrie as “a Scottish novelist and playwright and twink, best remembered today as the creator of Peter Pan”. Mostly as a result of my own editing, but the fact remains true nonetheless.

P.G. Wodehouse

While the comic writer of the Psmith and Jeeves novels  does appear to have been hairless and smooth enough to fall into the the twink category there is clearly a good deal of muscle mass under that suit.  Wodehouse really lies on the twunk/hunk cusp more so than anything else.
