The Unquiet Grave : A Word Cycle by Palinurus

The Unquiet Grave : A Word Cycle by Palinurus

Description

Cyril Connolly (1903-1974) was one of the most influential book reviewers and critics in England, contributing regularly to The New Statesmen, The Observer, and The Sunday Times. His essays have been collected in book form and published to wide acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic. Considered by many to be his most enduring work, The Unquiet Grave is a highly personal journal, written during the devastation of the Second World war and filled with reflections on aging, the break-up of his marriage, and the horrors of the war around him. It is also a wonderfully varied intellectual feast: a collection of aphorisms, epigrams, and quotations from such masters of European literature as Horace, Baudelaire, Sainte-Beuve, Flaubert, and Goethe. Dazzlingly original in both form and content, The Unquiet Grave has continued to influence generations of writers and readers.
