John Foxwell & Patricia Waugh: The Many Voices of Muriel Spark at Edinburgh International Book Festival

August 20 @ 7:15 pm - 8:15 pm

£10 – £12

Muriel Spark’s characters are famously acerbic and witheringly satirical but what was her relationship to the voices that inspired and defined them? John Foxwell and Patricia Waugh from the Department of English and Hearing the Voice project at Durham University offer a unique understanding of Spark’s many different voices for this event. By mapping multiple influences from Hebraic traditions to her work on propaganda, they hope to redefine our relationship with her novels.

Part of Edinburgh International Book Festival’s Muriel Spark 100 series of events – tickets available here.

Accessibility: All EIBF events offer a range of facilities for visitors with access requirements – more information here.
