This bumper selection of her letters, put together by a brace of academics from the Iris Murdoch Archive Centre at Kingston University, is patently something rather more than an attempt to trumpet her qualities as a correspondent.

Synopsis

Using unpublished archive material, including correspondence and the many annotations Murdoch made to the books held in her Oxford library, this book offers fresh insights into Murdoch's work by placing it within a diversity of new contexts. It also reveals startling parallels between Murdoch's work and other literary and philosophical texts.
