167 items Access: Open Dame Ivy Compton-Burnett was one of the most prolific British novelists of her time as she produced well over 20 novels during her career. Born in Middlesex in 1892, compton-Burnett published her first novel, Delores , in 1911, but did not produce another until Pastors and Masters , published in 1925. Beginning with the publication of her third novel in 1930, however, Compton-Burnett produced a new book nearly every two years until her death in 1969. Compton-Burnett novels deal exclusively with life in the confines of family and school and are set in Victorian and Edwardian England. Her work consists largely of dialogue, which carries the burden of exposition, description, and narration. For this reaso Compton-Burnett's novels have made excellent sources for radio dramas; several have been adapted for radio and one, A Heritage and Its History , for the stage.

Ivy Compton-Burnett
Ivy Compton Burnett was born in 1884 and wrote books about the relationships between family members. She was a sibling to 13 other children. Six of which were half-siblings. Ivy's father, a homeopathic physician, Dr. James Compton Burnett, remarried to Katharine Compton Burnett after his wife died. Ivy was the first to be born by Katharine and James. Ivy was very close to her younger brothers Guy and Noel. They played together and learned Latin and Greek together. Unfortunately in 1901, when Ivy was 16 her father died of a heart attach. This brought Katharine into depression, which was taken out on Ivy. Katharine made her children dress in black and isolated herself from the outside world. Ivy continued on to London University, like her father encouraged her to do before he died. IN 1904, her last year of college, Guy died of pneumonia. He was Ivy's mother's favorite. Noel and Ivy developed a strong bond dealing with the death. Noel left for London three years later, leaving Ivy at home with her mother and four younger sisters to take care of. Ivy's mother died of cancer in 1911. Ivy was left to care for the house and her sisters. In 1914 Noel joined the Army and was killed two years later in the battle of Somme. He had left Ivy for good. This was very hard for Ivy to deal with. Up until her death she could not talk of her brother or the war with out tears flooding her eyes. Shortly after in 1915 all four sisters ran away to London. In 1917 on Christmas day, two of the sisters killed themselves. The following summer a flue epidemic almost killed Ivy. She slowly recovered from sickness and loss over the next few years. Those years she refers to as the death in life years.

Ivy Compton-Burnett
Ivy Compton-Burnett (1892-1969) wrote over fifteen novels about the upper classes of the late Victorian period. The novels are constructed almost entirely of seemingly banal dialogue that eventually reveals, beneath its surface, the truths of human nature and insights into human relationships which Compton-Burnett took as her themes. Her works include Pastors and Masters, A Family and a Fortune, Manservant and Maidservant, and A House and Its Head A House and Its Head
A House and Its Head is Ivy Compton-Burnett's subversive look at the politics of family life, and perhaps the most unsparing of her novels. Manservant and Maidservant
At once the strangest and most marvelous of Ivy Compton-Burnett's fictions, Manservant and Maidservant has for its subject the domestic life of Horace Lamb, sadist, skinflint, and tyrant.

16. Ivy Compton-Burnett And Virginia Woolf
Virginia Woolf and ivy comptonburnett views on each other.
Ivy Compton-Burnett and Virginia Woolf
Here is Dame Ivy on VW: 'a snob'. 'She was a bit malicious, you know - she'd say the most dreadful things about people. Of course, one does oneself. But one doesn't expect it of Virginia Woolf. And on her novels: 'Well, is she really a novelist?' 'A lack of bone and a lack of character drawing.' 'I admire her use of words, I enjoy most of her work, but I wouldn't actually call her a good novelist.' But when Angus Wilson wrote a review claiming that Woolf's quality had been overestimated, she said: 'Ugly behaviour - I trust it will do him some harm'. And here is Virginia Woolf on Dame Ivy: 'There is something bleached about Miss Compton-Burnett: like hair that has never had any colour in it'. And in her diary in March 1937, Virginia reads a review comparing The Years and IC-B's Daughters and Sons, both of which have just been published: '"Much inferior to the bitter truth and intense originality of Miss Compton-Burnett" Now this pain woke me at 4a.m. and I suffered acutely.'

Random Quotes Book Close Outs There is probably nothing like living together for blinding people to each other.
People who have power respond simply. They have no minds but their own. Real life seems to have no plot. Time . . . is not a great healer. It is an indifferent and perfunctory one. Sometimes it does not heal at all. And sometimes when it seems to, no healing has been necessary. My youth is escaping without giving me anything it owes me.
