Degrees of Freedom First published in 1965 AS Byatt's Degrees of Freedom examined the first eight novels of Iris Murdoch identifying freedom as a central theme in all of them and looking at Murdoch's interest in the relations between art and goodness master and slave and the novel of character in the nineteenth century sense Drawing on Iris Murdoch's own critical and philosphical writing AS Byatt discussed her interest in the thought of Sartre Plato Freud and Simone Weil and related this to the form of the novels themselvesThis edition of Degrees of Freedom has an added dossier of later essays and reviews of Iris Murdoch's work by AS Byatt taking us up to the publication of The Book and the Brotherhood in 1987 It also includes a substantial pamplet written for the British Council which follows Murdoch's fiction as far as The Good Apprentice I'm reading this alongside the books discussed so my progress might be a bit erratic Reading this in tandem with Iris's first book 'Under the Net' which I've never read before To be continued Murdoch is a great writer Byatt is a sensitive reader A worthy combination which makes me wish that books like this should be published
