Selected by the Modern Library as one of the 100 best novels of all time "Zuleika Dobson is a highly accomplished and superbly written book whose spirit is farcical," said E. M. Forster. "It is a great work--the most consistent achievement of fantasy in our time . . . so funny and charming, so iridescent yet so profound."    Originally published in 1911, Max Beerbohm's sparklingly wicked satire concerns the unlikely events that occur when a femme fatale briefly enters the supremely privileged, all-male domain of Judas Col- lege, Oxford. A conjurer by profession, Zuleika Dobson can only love a man who is impervious to her considerable charms: a circumstance that proves fatal, as any number of love-smitten suitors are driven to suicide by the damsel's rejection. Laced with memorable one-liners ("Death cancels all engagements," utters the first casualty) and inspired throughout by Beerbohm's rococo imagination, this lyrical evocation of Edwardian undergraduate life at Oxford has, according to Forster, "a beauty unattainable by serious literature."    "I read Zuleika Dobson with pleasure," recalled Bertrand Russell. "It represents the Oxford that the two World Wars have destroyed with a charm that is not likely to be reproduced anywhere in the world for the next thousand years."… (més)

charming woman causes all Oxford undergrads to sacrifice themselves for love of her
  ritaer | Jun 26, 2021 |
This is a satire on Edwardian university life and chivalric attitudes, published in 1911. Zuleika Dobson is a very attractive young lady who comes to Oxford to visit her grandfather, the warden of the (fictional) Judas College. The Duke of Dorset is stricken with love with her, a condition that also afflicts every other male student; despite Zuleika's contempt, they are overcome with the logic of their position, and jointly commit suicide by drowning themselves. It sounds awful, but is handled in a light hearted way that has its own internal logic. The narrative viewpoint changes occasionally, which is slightly jarring. The author has a habit of coining evocative new words such as: tuist; vagrom; Egomet, inelubilable, disbuskined, aseity. An amusing read. ( )

The best thing I can say about Zuleika Dobson by Max Beerbohm is that it helped me meet the letter “Z” requirement for my 2017 Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge. I forced myself to keep reading this dated satire long after I lost interest in it.

This novel joins Candide and Gulliver’s Travels as satires that left me bored and bewildered. ( )

Not too often I give up on a book, but a third of the way in, I just decided to throw in the towel. The author's writing style hasn't aged well and I found the entire story uninteresting and unappealing. The satire and farce just seemed silly and pointless. ( )

When, in 1911, this book was first published, some people seemed to think it was intended as a satire on such things as the herd instinct, as feminine coquetry, as snobbishness, even as legerdemain; whereas I myself had supposed it was just a fantasy; and as such, I think, it should be regarded by others.

Author's note, 1946.
That old bell, presage of a train, had just sounded through Oxford station; and the undergraduates who were waiting there, gay figures in tweed or flannel, moved to the margin of the platform and gazed idly up the line.

'Oh, I never go in motors,' said Zuleika. 'They make one look like nothing on earth, and like everybody else.'
You cannot make a man by standing a sheep on its hind-legs. But by standing a flock of sheep in that position you can make a crowd of men.
