    Question What is the meaning of 'mid-morning of his career'?

    Hello,

    What is the meaning of 'mid-morning of his career' in the following sentence? Does it mean 'beginning of his career' or something close to that?

    "The story is an exemplar – of how so many of Wodehouse’s particular talents were near fullness in this mid-morning of his career, but also of how characters can escape a writer’s initial imagination to find their own, roaring life."

    Thank you

    My guess would be that it was early in his career as mid-morning is early in the day.

    The text is from an article called 'Celebrating 100 years of Jeeves and Wooster'

    In future, please acknowledge the author's name in your post. We should not have to open a link to discover it. Some members are unable to open links for various reasons.

    OK. I will include the author's name in future. In this case, the author's name is "Samanth Subramanian". I just have a doubt about whether the author may be known outside India. I myself have not heard of this author before. I would have included the article itself, but I vaguely remember that we are not supposed to copy the entire article here. (Don't remember if it was in the posting rules, or it was in one of the replies.)
