William Golding - the Unmoved

A non fiction book by

"In this analysis of Golding's work, literary critic Virginia Tiger argues that Golding's primary intention was that the reader encounters, but the imaginative impact of words, those experiences conventional language fails to convey - the primacy of the unexplained, the magical, the terrible." Tiger also looks in detail at Golding's fictional strategies and, drawing upon her own personal recollections of conversations and personal correspondence with Golding, shows how structure engages perception in this extraordinary body of literature. With chapters on Lord of the Flies, The Inheritors, Pincher Martin, Free Fall, The Spire, Darkness Visible, The Paper Men, Rites of Passage, Close Quarters, Fire Down Below as well as Golding's posthumous writings, this is the only book to offer a complete commentary on all his literary work and the critical responses to it.
