Overview

Robert Graves: His Life and Workwas published in 1982, it met with instant acclaim from every quarter, both in Britain and in the United States.

Robert Graves: His Life and Workhas served as the basis for other books, either on Graves or on his (sometime) mistress and muse the notorious Laura Riding, by writers who had known neither. But when Seymour-Smith wrote the 1982 biography, much of it with Graves' help, and at his home in Deya, both his subject and Laura Riding were still living. He was inevitably somewhat inhibited by this. Since then, and since some details that Seymour-Smith deliberately suppressed have been ventilated---in variously distorted forms---this material is no longer as sensitive as it was. In this completely revised, expanded and largely rewritten edition of the classic original---published to coincide with Graves's centenary---the author sets the record straight.

For those who want the inside story, scrupulously told, from an acknowledged master of psychological scrutiny and of twentieth-century literature, this book is an essential reader.
