Man of Contradictions

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 Rowse's 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 and passion. 'An urbane study of the celebrated historian.' Antonia Fraser, Daily Mail'Strikes a perfect balance between the Jekyll Rowse and the Hyde Rowse.' Bevis Hillier, Spectator 'Excellent.' Katherine Duncan-Jones, TLS
