New Perspectives on Robert Graves

Synopsis

"This book is largely the result of two international conferences held at Oxford and in Majorca in 1995 - the centenary year of Graves's birth. Since his death in 1985, full-length studies of Graves's work have been slow to appear. This volume offsets this oversight and brings the light of modern criticism to bear on the varied works of Robert Graves. The book is organized around five distinct themes that include studies on Graves's own literary criticism, offer new insights into his poetry, produce commentary on his often overlooked fictional output, make some reflections on the origins and importance of his White Goddess, and examine some literary crosscurrents that have pollinated Graves's work."
