Montague, Charles Edward, 1867-1928, English journalist and author, b. London. He joined the staff of the Manchester Guardian in 1890, remaining until his retirement in 1925 except for service (1914-19) in World War I, as a private and later as an intelligence officer. His war experience is reflected in his antiwar essays and novels. Among his best-known novels are Disenchantment (1922), Rough Justice (1926), and Right off the Map (1927). His literary criticism, especially A Writer's Notes on His Trade (1930, repr. 1969), is also valuable.
