LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
The British Council, National Book League & Longmans, Green, London, 1964. softcover, 8 1/2" x 5 1/2. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, pocket etc. Booklet in FAIR condition. Card covered, twin stapled booklet, portrait frontispiece, a select bibliography. Number 177 in 'Writers and Their Works' series (edited by Geoffrey Bullough). In this perceptive study, Miss Latham underlines the contradictions in Ralegh's character and actions, nowhere more manifest than in his writing in which he combined "truth with fiction, a sombre pessimism with a contagious zest for life". In the "passionate disarray" of his verse can be detected notes of violence, of concentrated scorn, and of deep melancholy.
