    Description
    He proclaimed himself a genius and raged against the slightest criticism from fellow scholars; he was a Marxist who despised the 'Idiot People'; he could be generous and affectionate yet hurled insults at his friends; he inveighed against Puritanism but was himself in many ways a Puritan: A. L. Rowse was a man of many contradictions.In this clear-sighted and absorbing biography, Richard Ollard examines the many sides of this Protean personality to reveal a man who whatever he was responding to - public affairs, the arts, natural beauty or events in his personal life - did so with tremendous energy, passion and sheer zest for life.
