    PDF Iris Murdoch ↠ A Fairly Honourable Defeat Kindle ë A Fairly ↠ fairly mobile, honourable ebok, defeat free, A Fairly free, A Fairly Honourable Defeat MOBII first read this book in graduate school in the 70's and I've re read it several times over the years It may or may not be one of the best books I've ever read but in some ways it is probably the most powerfulFor many years it was the only Murdoch book I'd read but over the past five years I've picked up others and that altered my reading experience this time I still felt the chilly dread of what the characters were going to encounter next but I was also hit over the head with Murdoch's philosophy in the same way that I did reading Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged okay okay I get itThis awareness didn't diminish my interest in this novel or Murdoch's writing but it made me think about how present her voice and her personality are in the book It chills me to consider her cynicism and contempt for people but also intrigue

    PDF Iris Murdoch ↠ A Fairly Honourable Defeat Kindle ë A Fairly ↠ fairly mobile, honourable ebok, defeat free, A Fairly free, A Fairly Honourable Defeat MOBIThis is a tangled web set in the late 60s concerning Rupert and Hilda; their 20 year old drop out son Peter; Rupert’s younger brother Simon and his boyfriend Axel; Hilda’s unstable younger sister Morgan and her estranged husband Tallis and her former lover and college friend of Rupert and Axel JuliusThings are intertwined from the start but later there are strong echoes of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream when the stage is set for a non magical enchantment leading to illusions of love and betrayal with the metaphorical puppeteer appearing to soothe whilst actually sowing doubts and creating scenarios Although the story is entirely naturalistic rather than magical realism etc there are occasions when some of the characters think they sense supernatural demons or ghosts yet none of them realise the real power that is manipulating their livesIt opens inauspiciously with a long conversation between Rupert and Hilda which explains the back story but w
