John Foxwell & Patricia Waugh: The Many Voices of Muriel Spark at Edinburgh International Book Festival
August 20, 2018 @ 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.
