Elegy for Iris by John Bayley

A melodious tribute to Iris Murdoch, one of the greatest English-speaking writers of her time -- who became stricken with Alzheimers disease -- by John Bayley, her devoted husband of over 40 years. He recalls both his youthful love for an entrancing philosopher who stole his heart in 1954, as well as their marriage. Bayley describes this extraordinary relationship in a language that resurrects the classical mythology of love. He attempts to discover the real Iris who became beloved of readers with her incandescent novels. But the harder he tries to know Iris, the more ineffable & protean she becomes, even more so after being diagnosed with Alzheimers disease in 1994. A work of art.
