About this book
This working guide to the novels and short stories of Malcolm Lowry attempts to look at the author's work rather than his private life. Avoiding the jargon and myth-making which surrounds so much Lowry criticism, Bareham's study examines the relationship between the triumph of Under the Volcano and the supposed falling off in his later novels. The claim for the reputation of Under the Volcano is re-affirmed, while the relationship of Lowry's other novels to it is given a fresh examination, such that they can be seen to have integral merits, not merely footnotes to the one major achievement.
