"The events and experiences that significantly marked Spender's life are at the center of this biography: vividly recaptured, they range from the decay of British upper-class liberalism and the disappointments of the Spanish Civil War to the rise and fall of Marxism and Nazism. The bombings of London during World War II, the Cold War and the human rights struggle, the Vietnam protest movement and the 1960s sexual revolution in America and abroad, and the decline of England as a cultural and political force are parts of this narrative."--Jacket.
