From the Publisher

"A splendid collection, innovative and enlightening. The essays ably examine Iris Murdoch's work anew or afresh in a wide variety of contexts: biographical, cultural, theological, political, philosophical, psychological, scientific, deconstructionist, cinematic and intertextual. This book is a major contribution to Murdoch studies." - Priscilla Martin, University of Oxford, UK
