The History of Mr. Polly is a 1910 comic novel by H. G. Wells.The protagonist of The History of Mr. Polly is an antihero inspired by H. G. Wells's early experiences in the drapery trade: Alfred Polly, born circa 1870, a timid and directionless young man living in Edwardian England, who despite his own bumbling achieves contented serenity with little help from those around him. Mr. Polly's most striking characteristic is his innate sense of epithet, [1] which leads him to coin hilarious expressions like the Shoveacious Cult for sunny young men of an abounding and elbowing energy and dejected angelosity for the ornaments of Canterbury Cathedral
