9781403987105: Iris Murdoch (Modern Novelists)

Iris Murdoch produced twenty-six novels in forty years. The last of these, Jackson's Dilemma, was published in 1995, four years before her death. Murdoch's interest in moral problems inclined her towards what could be seen as an unusual view of human character and human life, leading her to create bizarre situations and offer unsettling solutions which frequently challenge and intrigue the reader.

This essential introduction to one of Britain's best-known writers guides the reader through the full range of Murdoch's fictional output, tracing basic patterns which run throughout Murdoch's work and showing how the novels help to elucidate one another. The revised, updated and expanded new edition takes into account certain details which have emerged following Murdoch's death in 1999, incorporates the latest scholarship and offers fuller treatment of a number of novels.

The second edition also gives more weight to the development of the moral discourse which is predominant in Murdoch's work. From the mid-sixties onwards, Murdoch was intensely concerned with the problems of Good and Evil in a godless world. In the later novels, particularly those of the eighties and nineties, she posited the possibility of mystic personalities who influence others from a position beyond the normal parameters of our world. Hilda D. Spear examines these mystic, and mysterious, fictions in the later chapters of her study, and argues that Jackson's Dilemma should be viewed as Murdoch's 'unfinished novel'.

About the Author:

HILDA D. SPEAR is an Honorary Research Fellow of Dundee University, UK, having retired from her position as Senior Lecturer there in 1993. She is the author and editor of several books on the literature of the First World War as well as two Palgrave Master Guides on Wuthering Heights and A Passage to India.

Review:

'Spear's authoritative book combines informed biography with the most coherent overview of Murdoch's work I have encountered, and with astute insights into individual novels.' - Peter Reed, University of Minnesota, USA

'Spear provides an invaluable basis for the study of Murdoch's novels, both for the inquisitive lay reader and students of her work.' - Anne Rowe, Kingston University, UK

'Hilda Spear's achievement in pointing out the relationship between Iris Murdoch's novels and her philosophical ideas has been considerable. It is therefore not surprising that a 2nd edition was deemed necessary to bring in the last work of Iris Murdoch, and Peter Conradi's biography of 2001.' - Margaret Weldhen, The Use of English
