Iris Murdoch and the Moral Imagination: Essays

Front Cover
M.F. Simone Roberts, Alison Scott-Baumann
McFarland, Incorporated, Publishers, Jul 1, 2010 - Literary Criticism - 278 pages
The writing of Iris Murdoch has long been of interest to both literature enthusiasts and students of philosophy. The years Murdoch spent studying philosophy at Oxford and Cambridge left an indelible imprint on her work. The essays in this book address both Murdoch's philosophy and writing in the context of Continental philosophy and postmodern fiction. Many of the twelve essays resist the prevailing critical orthodoxies, introducing instead new theories with which to approach one of Britain's most revered authors.
