Iris existed for me as a wonderful and solitary being, first seen bicycling . Extracts from A Memoir of Iris Murdoch, by John Bayley (Duckworth, £1. 5).
Iris existed for me as a wonderful and solitary being, first seen bicycling slowly and rather laboriously past the window in St Antony's College, where I was living . One entry, dated June 3, 1954, read: "St Antony's Dance.
His book IRIS MURDOCH AS I KNEW HER recounts how Bayley prided himself on being her only caregiver. Yet he was deeply neglectful about basic hygiene, and refused even to hire cleaners. Since Irish Murdoch left an estate of two million pounds, they could easily have afforded more comfortable and clean surroundings. Bayley had also been a more than imperfect husband even in the couple's early days. Iris had wanted children, Bayley refused.
I love Iris Murdoch's writing, and, over the years, I have read many of her novels. She was a gifted person, intellectually surpassing many of her peers. Iris: A Memoir of Iris Murdoch" interlaces all that was so positive about Iris Murdoch with the sadness and the degradation of the illness that finally ended her life. In fact, at times, I feel that the greatness of Iris Murdoch becomes obliterated by her inability to think and/or communicate as she used to be able to think/communicate. The book is frightfully sad, and it left me wondering about its main purpose.
Dame Jean Iris Murdoch DBE (/ˈmɜːrdɒk/; 15 July 1919 – 8 February 1999) was an Irish novelist and philosopher. Murdoch is best known for her novels about good and evil, sexual relationships, morality, and the power of the unconscious.
I would learn more later by reading . Wilson’s Iris Murdoch as I Knew Her and John Bayley’s own memoir, Elegy for Iris. Beyond ‘A Severed Head’: An Iris Murdoch Starter Kit. Go for the books Murdoch is best known for, particularly the Booker Prize-winning, ‘THE SEA, THE SEA,’ about a retired theater director who learns that his adolescent love, Hartley, has retired with her husband to the same coastal town and decides that they should, decades later, renew their relationship.
As the Easter Rebellion looms, tension mounts in the rain-soaked streets of Dublin. Tension is also ratcheting up at home. A revolver shot rings through a Whitehall office one hot afternoon in the middle of an English summer. A Government official has apparently shot himself, but the circumstances are questionable – prompting Octavian Gray, head of the department in which the dead man worked, to investigate. Lawyer John Ducane is charged with the task, interviewing other civil servants by day, and by night attempting repeatedly - and unsuccessfully - to break up with his mistress.

In 1998 John Bayley wrote a best-selling, critically acclaimed memoir of his wife, the great philosopher and novelist Iris Murdoch, who had been suffering from Alzheimer's disease since 1996. At times unbearably moving, at times poignantly comical, this memoir provides a fitting memorial to Dame Iris. It is an enchanting portrait of a remarkable marriage and an inspiration for anyone whose life is affected by Alzheimer's.
