The Selected Letters of Bertrand Russell


Product Description
Product Details


'The letters have been so interestingly and skilfully edited by Nicholas Griffin that one has the impression of following a continuous thread of life month by month... A splendidly arranged and edited collection, opening the way for many different impressions.' -Stuart Hamphsire, New Review of Books; 'With the appearance of The Selected Letters of Bertrand Russell, the non-specialist reader is given the run of that extraordinary headpiece as it applied itself to more accessible topics like sex, love and marriage.'- Stefan Collini, Times Literary Supplement; 'Full of interest, both human and philosophical' Evening Standard; 'A most enjoyable introduction to a man whose exceptional brain lit almost a century with philosophical ideas'- The Spectator; 'The combination of Russell's letters and Griffin's editing provides an enthralling introduction to one of the most remarkable and bizarre figures of the 20th century'. -The Sunday Telegraph; 'Griffin's achievement in this first volume is a splendid augury for its successor. He has in effect given us a new biography of Russell, skilfully weaving the letters into an explanatory narrative...The Russell one meets in these pages is enormously likeable and admirable. He merits celebration and this volume marvellously demonstrates why.' Financial Times; 'Bertrand Russell wrote the best English prose of any 20th century philosopher... The publication of his Selected Letters deserves, therefore, to rule as an important literary event. Nicholas Griffin...has done his editorial work meticulously - his linking narrative is a masterpiece of concision.'-The Sunday Times; 'The letters are as transparent as Russell wished them in his own mind to be. It is strking to discover that, unlike any other genius who has written his own biography, Russell told the truth about himself and invented next to nothing... This volume is the first of several and no doubt its successors will be just as hard to put down. Russell was fortunate in his life: he has been equally fortunate in his posthumous editor.' - The Sunday Telegraph
