Joyce Cary's Creative Imagination


Edwin Ernest Christian

Joyce Cary once wrote that «All my books are part of one expression: that is, they are like different chapters in one work, showing different angles of a single reality.» In exploring this central idea, Joyce Cary's Creative Imagination illuminates the work of this great modern Anglo-Irish writer. It analyzes as well Cary's sometimes misunderstood ideas about women, art, politics, religion, Ireland, and British imperialism in Africa, using his central theme to show the consistency and coherence of these minor aspects of his thought. The lively discussions of Cary's poems and lesser novels may lead to the rediscovery of these unfairly neglected works.
