Bits that should be added
He is also the author of "The Art of Writing" a collection of his lectures at Cambrdge. It rather famous, it should really be added here. I'll add it when I have a chance, unless someone else does it first.
It should also be mentioned that a series of books, I don't rember the title right now, was written about the author's facination and love of "Q"'s books on writing... JesseW 22:44, 4 Nov 2004 (UTC)
I'll try and dig out a bibliography I've got somewhere. By the way, has anybody detailed knowledge of the Leavis' attack on him. Important, since many people's view of him seems derived from that of the Leavises. Whathojeeves 20:52, 27 August 2007 (UTC)
Can this really be used as a reference to his nationality? You wouldn't call someone from Devon or Yorkshire 'Devonish' or 'Yorkist'. Shouldn't English or British be used instead? The cows want their milk back (talk) 18:00, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
- Two points in reply 1) The infobox gives his nationality as British, which is both correct and verifiable, 2) "Devonish" isn't a word, Cornish is, and "Yorkist" means an adherent of the House of York in the Wars of the Roses, not someone from Yorkshire.

Just because, Cornish is a word still doesn't change the fact that it's a county just like all the other counties, which is part of England, so it should be English or British you pick18.104.22.168 (talk) 23:42, 28 August 2010 (UTC)
On the contrary, Cornwall is a country in its own right and the Cornish are a distinct people. (There are juridical aspects to this as well as the cultural.) Q is one of our greatest writers, and his work contains some of the finest expressions of our identity. He himself was a proud Cornishman, and is remembered as such.22.214.171.124 (talk) 23:42, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
- Cornwall is not a country in almost every sense and proscribed elements... Also, "Cornish" is not a nationality for the lead so changing. Edit: there's no evidence in the main body of the article for what he self-identified as. Many people in Cornwall identify as Cornish, English, British or a combination of such. Some people treat their Cornish identity as something as more of a regional identity. I have changed the lead accordingly. Which was changed from British original with no consensus or reason given so this is pretty much a revert. --Τασουλα (talk) 17:32, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
The Golden Pomp has the author statement "arranged by A. T. Quiller Couch" without a hyphen, so it is likely he adopted the hyphenated form at a later date and was not born with it.--Johnsoniensis (talk) 19:13, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
