(p.22) Chapter 2 An Oxford Scholar
A Life of H.L.A. Hart

Nicola Lacey

Oxford University Press

This chapter details H. L. A. Hart's experiences as an Oxford scholar. Herbert Hart arrived at New College to take up his scholarship to read for the Literae Humaniores degree — a mixture of Greek, Latin, ancient history, and philosophy — in October 1926. Herbert was in many ways well-equipped for his entry into the social and educational hierarchy of Oxford. Though reserved in manner, he was vigorous in discussion. His extraordinary erudition and his familiarity with some of the most beautiful architectural sights of Europe gave him a conversational range and, at least on the surface, a social confidence unusual in someone of his age and background. Both the aesthetic and the intellectual environments which awaited him at New College were to shape his life in vivid and decisive ways.
