Summary

This study of Paul Scott reappraises his earlier novels and shows how the close of the British Raj became a powerful and unexpectedly positive 'metaphor' for his artistic vision, particularly in his tour de force, The Raj Quartet (1966-1975), and its coda, Staying On (1977; Booker Prize, 1978), where Scott found in one of the great upheavals of recent times what he had long been seeking - evidence of the human being's capacity for moral integrity and love, even in the face of extraordinary challenges.
