Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 1977 - Classicists - 220 pages
0 Reviews
This memoir by the late distinguished classicist tells of Dodds' travels from China to San Francisco, his encounters with literary figures including Yeats, Eliot, Auden, and MacNeice, and his conflicting educations in Belfast, Dublin, and Oxford. The result is a moving account of one man's instinctive search for an identity in a time of deep moral, political, and aesthetic confusion.
