£3.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Virtually from its first appearance in 1951, this book was considered one of the most illuminating literary autobiographies to have come out of the 1930s and 40s. In writing it Stephen Spender was concerned with the themes of love, poetry, politics, the life of literature, childhood, travel and the development of certain attitudes towards moral problems. He relates these personal themes to the background of public and private events in this period of his life. This book provides an intimate and deeply felt commentary on the relationship between literature and politics in England and Germany during these years. In the course of the book there are portraits of Virginia Woolf, W.B. Yeats, T.S. Eliot, Lady Ottoline Morrell, W.H. Auden, Christopher Isherwood and others.
