WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY STEPHEN MEDCALF

When Marian Taylor takes the post of governess at Gaze castle, remote house on a beautiful but desolate coast, she finds herself confronted with many strange mysteries. What kind of crime or catastrophe in the past still keeps the house under a brooding spell? And is her employer Hannah an innocent victim, a guilty woman, a lunatic, or a witch?

Review:

" The Unicorn explores Murdoch's theme that life is - or should be - a spiritual quest or pilgrimage" ( Guardian)

"A writer of wonderful, and sometimes rather alarming idiosyncrasy; from her first novels, she explored a parish which was uniquely and unmistakably hers. But, somehow, by pursuing her desire only to be herself, she made it possible for generations of novelists after her to be more themselves." ( Independent)

"Every novel is imprinted with the same distinctive, magical and wonderfully inventive imagination... A humour and humanity marked her fictional writing and made it a rich, wonderful and varied discourse. She filled it with strong emotions, powerful passions, very human experiences, humour" ( Guardian)

Book Description:

Iris Murdoch's witty, atmospheric subversion of the Victorian Gothic novel
