Description

From the "Lives" series, this book concentrates on Joyce Cary, tracing his life, from his birth into a major, but declining Anglo-Irish family, through to a bohemian life in Oxford and Paris and to his taste of war in the Balkans. His years spent as a colonial administrator in Nigeria are studied, where he confronted in his daily duties many of the issues which were to inspire some of his greates works, such as injustice and man's inherent creativity. Bishop follows Cary's career through to the flowering of his fame with the publication of "The Horse's Mouth" in 1944 and onto his later family life in Oxford, where he enjoyed the respect of some of the foremost literary figures of his time.show more
