Detailed Description

A two-volume book of literary memoirs by Laura (Riding) Jackson, written between 1972 and her death in 1991, opens with her even-handed account of her personal rĂ´le as a poet, critic and writer throughout her life, and evaluates and reflects on the broad issues of her literary milieu from the 1920s onward and the ground she occupied within it. It comprises numerous commentaries on those she had personal working relations with, such as the Fugitives, Robert Graves, Jacob Brownowski, Norman Cameron and others of the 1920-1930s and beyond, to those who impinged closely upon her work such as W. H. Auden, W. B. Yeats, T. S. Eliot, Ted Hughes, Sylvia Plath, plus her views on various modernist critics.
