    About Iris Murdoch. Iris Murdoch (–) was born in Dublin and brought up in London. She studied philosophy at Cambridge and was a philosophy fellow at St. Anne’s College for 20 years. She published her first novel in and was instantly recognized as More about Iris Murdoch.   And every Murdoch book stands up well to rereading, so you never really run out - that is a huge plus for me as I can't bear it when a favourite writer dies and I know there is nothing new to come; with Murdoch I can just keep on enjoying the books I've already read.

      The existential novel, she argues (and Murdoch literally wrote one of the first books on Sartre), is the natural heir of those 19th-century worlds. It is just that now God is dead and we are all. Dame Iris Murdoch () was one of the most acclaimed British writers of the twentieth century. Very prolific, she wrote twenty-six novels, four books of philosophy, five plays, a volume of poetry, a libretto, and numerous essays before developing Alzheimer's disease in the mids.4/5(57).

    Murdoch is best known for her novels about good and evil, sexual relationships, morality, and the power of the unconscious. Her first published novel, Under the Net, was selected in as one of Modern Library's best English-language novels of the 20th century. In , she was made a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire. Murdoch biographer and critic Peter J. Conradi notes the author's effective use of "the stage props and scenery of the Romantic sublime", including massive cliffs overlooking a dangerous sea, isolated castles, mysterious megaliths, and a deadly bog containing carnivorous plants.: Both religion and philosophy are important themes in the book.
