Historical Who is Who
1911 - 1993
British novelist re-presenting classic themes of human fallen-ness in picture language that has a wide connection. For instance, Lord of the Flies reworks the theme of an innocent coral island to show accidentally isolated children capable of demonic strife. Similarly, The Spire is another tower of Babel story of human over-reaching. Perfectibility as a liberal educational assumption is exposed as naïve.
