Descrizione libro Bucknell Univ. Press. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. UNUSED, LIKE NEW, NOT EX-LIBRARY, 1st Edition in Paperback (LITERARY BIOGRAPHY IRIS MURDOCH), 85 pages. (Jean Iris Murdoch (15 July 1919 8 February 1999) was born in Phibsborough, Dublin, She wrote her first novel, Under the Net, in 1954, having previously published essays on philosophy and the first monograph study in English of Jean-Paul Sartre. It was selected in 2001 by the editorial board as one of Modern Library's 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century. In 2008, She is best known for her novels about political and social questions of good and evil, sexual relationships, morality, and the power of the unconscious. She went on to produce 25 novels and other works of philosophy and drama. There is a great variety in her achievement, and the richly layered structure and compelling realistic imagination of The Black Prince (1973) is very different from the early comic work Under The Net (1954) or The Unicorn (1963). The Unicorn can be read as a sophisticated Gothic romance, or as a novel with Gothic trappings, or perhaps as a parody of the Gothic mode of writing. The Black Prince, for which Murdoch won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize. Murdoch was awarded the Booker Prize in 1978 for The Sea, the Sea, a finely detailed novel about the power of love and loss. Several of her works have been adapted for the screen, including the British television series of her novels An Unofficial Rose and The Bell. J. B. Priestley's dramatisation of her 1961 novel A Severed Head starred Ian Holm and Richard Attenborough. Ireland is the other sensitive detail of Murdoch's political life that seems to attract interest. Conradi notes A.N. Wilson's record that Murdoch regretted the sympathetic portrayal of the Irish nationalist cause she had given earlier in The Red and the Green, and a competing defence of the book at Caen in 1978.[17] The novel while broad of sympathy is hardly an unambiguous celebration of the 1916 Rising.). book.
