Synopsis: Raymond Williams was the most influential socialist writer and thinker in post-war Britain, From 961, with the publication of The Long Revolution, his reputation was bound up with the theory and practice of Culture, as itself a social dynamic. However, Williams always considered that his critical and imaginative work formed an integral whole and that their complementary pattern was crucial to his personal intent and wider purpose. In particular for him the appearance of the pathbreaking Culture and Society in 1958 and of his revelatory first novel Border Country in 1960 were twinned events.
Now, for the first time, making full use of Williams' private and unpublished papers and by placing him ir a wide social and cultural landscape, Dai Smith, in this highly original and riveting biographical study, uncovers how the life to 1961 is indeed an explanation of Raymond Williams' immense and connected creative and intellectual achievement.

About the Author: Dai Smith is Professor in the Cultural History of Wales at Swansea University.

Book Description Parthian Books, United Kingdom, 2008. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Using a rich array of material from Williams hitherto unused personal papers, diaries, letters, unpublished novels and stories, notebooks, work drafts and fragments, Dai Smith takes us through the formative years on the Welsh Border as the son of a railway signalman and his wife, on to Cambridge in 1939 and War service in Normandy, to show in telling detail how the making of Culture and Society (1958) and the writing of his novel, Border Country (1960) was all of a piece in the conceptual breakthrough he strove to make in the 1950s. The meaning of Raymond Williams is revealed in his making. This biography places its central figure within a deeply researched social and cultural history so that we can see again, as Raymond Williams insisted we should that Culture is a whole way of life .
