From a Tiny Corner in the House of Fiction: Conversations with Iris Murdoch (Hardback)Gillian Dooley (editor)
- We can order this
Murdoch shares details of both her created and lived worlds, talking frankly about the difficulties facing a novelist writing in the second half of the twentieth century. She speaks at length about many of her novels and characters, explaining their philosophical and ethical foundations and clarifying points that have puzzled readers. Especially interesting are her views on such subjects as politics and freedom, women's education, the good life, and the possibilities for spiritual life after the demise of organised religions.
Gillian Dooley introduces the collection with an analysis of Murdoch's work, looking closely at her method of composition and development of character and situation. Dooley also provides background information for each of the interviews, along with a thorough index.
