Product Overview

An international line-up of authors trace the form, history, impact, reception, and decisive themes of Muriel Spark, from "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie" to "The Finishing School." Original essays confront Spark''s entire oeuvre&mdashpoetry, prose, and criticism--and consider how matters of biography, geography, gender, identity, nation, and religion are at work--and at play--in Spark''s multifaceted writing. This anthology shows Spark to be a consummate artist as well as a proactive and persuasive thinker on social questions, including the welfare state, secularization, decolonization, and anti-psychiatry. The volume compares Spark alongside contemporaries including J.M. Coetzee, Graham Greene, and Flannery O''Connor, and it ends with a look at Spark''s legacy in the twenty-first century.
