9780701207700: An autobiography

From his sheltered childhood in Orkney to the turmoil of industrial Glasgow, Edwin Muir was witness to some of the most traumatic years and events of our modern age. And yet, in his life and in his art, he was constantly haunted by the symbolic 'fable' which he longed to find beneath the surface reality of the everyday. From his dream notebooks to his travels in Eastern Europe, Muir paints an unforgettable picture of the slow and sometimes painful growth of a poet's sensibility as he comes to terms with his own nature amidst the terror and confusion of the twentieth century.

About the Author:

Edwin Muir was born and raised in the Orkney Islands until his family moved to Glasgow in 1901. He found employment there as a clerk and educated himself during those years, moving to London and marrying Willa Anderson in 1919. Muir gradually established himself as a literary critic and novelist and, with Willa, as a translator – most notably of the works of Kafka. Muir was in his late forties before he started to write the poetry for which he is best known today. His verse is marked by a fascination with time and timeless symbols – haunted no doubt by what he came to see as an idyllic childhood in Orkney.
