A Man of Contradictions: A Life of A. L. Rowse (Paperback)

£18.00
Usually despatched in 14+ days.

Synopsis

He proclaimed himself a genius and raged against the slightest criticism from fellow scholars; he was a Marxist who despised the 'Idiot People'; he could be generous and affectionate yet hurled insults at his friends; he inveighed against Puritanism but was himself in many ways a Puritan: A. L. Rowse was a man of many contradictions.



In this clear-sighted and absorbing biography, Richard Ollard examines the many sides of Rowse's Protean personality to reveal a man who, whatever he was responding to - public affairs, the arts, natural beauty or events in his personal life - did so with tremendous energy and passion.



'An urbane study of the celebrated historian.' Antonia Fraser, Daily Mail



'Strikes a perfect balance between the Jekyll Rowse and the Hyde Rowse.' Bevis Hillier, Spectator



'Excellent.' Katherine Duncan-Jones, TLS
