Description - Elizabeth Bowen by Maud Ellmann
This study offers an authoritative introduction to Elizabeth Bowen's works, revealing both their pleasures for the fiction-addict and their fascinations for the literary critic, theorist, and historian. It also provides a lucid introduction - by demonstration - to psychoanalytic modes of reading, and shows how such readings are enriched by an understanding of the writer's life and times.
