Revue de presse

"The Voyage that Never Ends...is nevertheless a gorgeous plum pudding of a book, full of tragi-comic insights..." -The Spectator (London)

"This year marks the 50th anniversary of [Lowry's] death, for which poet Hofmann has brought together a range of materials unpublished in Lowry's lifetime. Although virtually all of these poems, short stories, drafts, and letters were published posthumously in some form, they are scattered and hard to find. Highlights include the short story that eventually became Chapter 8 of Under the Volcano, letters to American poet Conrad Aiken, and various pieces based on Lowry's wide-ranging travels. Hofmann writes the introduction. Highly recommended for academic libraries." --Library Journal

"Here is a book to make all Lowry fans rejoice: a superb selection from his lesser-known writings - the stories, poems, letters, above all the unfinished novels he struggled with for the last ten years of his life. The body of work they reveal - one of magnificent fragments and singularities - is often as striking, in its own way, as Under the Volcano itself, and it forms a riveting companion volume to that masterpiece. It deserves to become a classic in its own right." -James Lasdun

"Lowry is, needless to say, a one-of-a-kind writer: not prolific, decreasingly celebrated, enigmatic, tormented to the point of being tormenting and, as it happens, brilliant and essential to any calculation of twentieth-century fiction." -Richard Ford

"Lowry 'was not really a novelist, except by accident'...he could equally well be characterized as 'diarist, compulsive note-taker, poet manqué, alcoholic philosophizing rambler...[and] genius.'" -Douglas Day in The New York Times (Eliot Fremont-Smith)

"Interest in star-crossed Malcolm Lowry persists; the materials for a myth are there, in perfect adjustment." -The New York Times (Hugh Kenner)

Biographie de l'auteur

Malcolm Lowry (1909–1957) was born in New Brighton, England, the youngest of four sons of Arthur O. Lowry, a rich Liverpool businessman and devout Methodist. Brought up largely by nannies, he attended the Leys School in Cambridge before shipping out “to see the world” on the merchant steamer Pyrrhus, an ordeal that supplied him with the material for his first novel, Ultramarine. Already a heavy drinker, Lowry studied writing privately with the poet and novelist Conrad Aiken in America before taking a degree at Cambridge. Ultramarine was published in 1933, and that same year Lowry married Jan Gabrial. They were never happy, and often apart; in 1940 they divorced, after which Lowry married Margerie Bonner, a minor Hollywood star whom he had met some years before. Starting in 1936 and while moving restlessly back and forth between Mexico, the US, and Canada, Lowry worked on his great novel Under the Volcano, which went through multiple drafts and was rejected by twelve publishers before coming out in 1947. During the last decade of his life, Lowry’s drinking left him in ever worse health. He and Margerie lived for the most part in a fishing shack in Dollarton, British Columbia, but also traveled widely, and in 1955 they moved to Ripe in Sussex. Lowry’s death two years later, among a litter of bottles and pills, was attributed by the coroner to “misadventure.”

Michael Hofmann is a poet and translator. He has translated nine books by Joseph Roth and was awarded the PEN translation prize for String of Pearls. He lives in London.

Over The Volcano . . . We Go? 28 septembre 2007
Par RR - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I'm glad this is out there. I already owned 'Hear Us O Lord From Heaven Thy Dwelling Place' so I'd already read the two crowns in this collection, 'Through The Panama' and "Path To The Forest Spring'. I was hoping for longer excerpts from the novels, and was more than a little annoyed there was nothing at all from 'Lunar Caustic'. But what really irritated me was the editor's all-too brief introduction, lack of any individual introduction for each of the novels relating what they are about, and finally lack of any footnotes. Reading an excerpt without any idea of what larger work it was picked out of makes it much harder to enter. You are left with a lot of nice prose but no sense of story. What were Lowry's aims with this book? Where was he writing it? How far did he get towards completion? And there are references in the letters where some footnotes would have been greatly appreciated. So while I would have given the content four stars I'm giving the book three because of the editor. I can't see anyone who isn't a fan of 'Under The Volcano' being drawn into this collection.

The Mother Lode of Lowry's incredible writing! 28 avril 2009
Par MLorenzo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is by far the best collection of work by one of the greatest although sadly lesser known writers of the 20th Century. Lowry, British by birth, lived for years in Mexico and Canada, and because of his drinking his published work is a fraction of his prolific writing. This book contains a treasure chest of his lesser known work, unfinished novels, stories, letters. He is best known for his masterpiece "Under the Volcano." I read "Volcano" over 30 years ago when I was still drinking, and nothing, not even Bukowski (certainly no offense to Bukowski, a genius as well) hit me as hard as Lowry and I have always wished I could get my hands on more of his work. My wish has been granted in this definitive tome. This is the Mother Lode for Lowry fans, and anyone who appreciates truly great literature. Lowry, although at times a bit dense in language and style, is more than worth a bit of extra effort on the reader's part. His writing is impeccable, the imagery, the passion, the pain, the insights, the evocative precision of inner and outer landscapes are stunning! This book, especially in his letters, offers the reader a greater sense of the man behind the myth that has grown around a brilliant writer, who happened to be an alcoholic. Reading him at this point in my life, more than 32 years sober, I see his work in a different light and have gained a much deeper appreciation and understanding of Lowry the man, and the writer. This book is a classic; evidence of the true genius of Malcolm Lowry.- Michael Clark Lorenzo. Accidents of Birth
