Iris Murdoch’s last novel reveals first signs of Alzheimer’s disease
1 December 2004 The last novel written by author Iris Murdoch before she died reveals signs of the first stages of Alzheimer’s disease, according to a study published in the latest online issue of Brain. As part of their on-going research into the effects of Alzheimer's disease on language, scientists at University College London and Medical Research Council’s Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit decided to compare three of Dame Iris Murdoch’s works, including her final novel written just before she was diagnosed with the disease. The team found that, while the structure and grammar of Murdoch’s writing remained roughly consistent throughout her career, her vocabulary had dwindled and her language simplified in her very last novel. This unique opportunity to study someone’s writing style over their lifetime could help researchers improve current diagnostic tests for Alzheimer’s. Under the Net, Murdoch’s first published work, The Sea, The Sea which was written during the prime of her creative life and her final novel, Jackson’s Dilemma, written just before Murdoch was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, were all converted to digital format and analysed using specialised software. The complete texts were also transformed into word lists showing the frequency of each word by word-type.

Iris Murdoch (1919-1999) - in full Dame Jean Iris Murdoch, married name Mrs. J.O. Bailey British writer, university lecturer and prolific and highly professional novelist, Iris Murdoch dealt with everyday ethical or moral issues, sometimes in the light of myths. As a writer, she was a perfectionist who did not allow editors to change her text. Murdoch produced 26 novels in 40 years, the last written while she was suffering from Alzheimer disease. "She wanted, through her novels, to reach all possible readers, in different ways and by different means: by the excitement of her story, its pace and its comedy, through its ideas and its philosophical implications, through the numinous atmosphere of her own original and created worldthe world she must have glimpsed as she considered and planned her first steps in the art of fiction." (John Bailey in Elegy for Iris Iris Murdoch was born in Dublin - the name 'Murdoch' is essentially Scots Gaelic. Her mother, the former Irene Alice Richardson, was an Irishwoman who had trained as an opera singer. Wills John Hughes Murdoch, Iris's father, was an English civil servant who had been a cavalry officer in World War I. Following the war, he worked as a government clerk. The family moved to London, where Murdoch grew up in the western suburbs of Hammersmith and Chiswich.

by Joyce Carol Oates Originally published in the New Republic, Novermber 18, 1978
Reprinted in The Profane Art Though Iris Murdoch has defined the highest art as that which reveals and honors the minute, "random" detail of the world, and reveals it together with a sense of its integrity, its unity and form, her own ambitious, disturbing, and eerily eccentric novels are stichomythic structures in which ideas, not things, and certainly not human beings, flourish.

    St. Martin's Press John Bayley and Iris Murdoch REVIEWS OF IRIS MURDOCH'S BOOKS:
  • The Sandcastle
    "She has an extraordinary gift for looking at the embroiled affairs of her contemporaries as tragic comedies."
  • The Time of the Angels
    "Murdoch writes, it's difficult not to feel, as the initiate of a mystery, possessed of secret knowledge. . . . Here, mystery is genuinely embodied; the reader's imagination is addressed, responds and is satisfied."
  • The Nice and the Good
    "Murdoch's best, most exciting and most successful book. . . . one suspects a growing inclination in Miss Murdoch's approach to take fictional techniques seriously. . . . [O]ne day Miss Murdoch will write a novel that is a novel all the way through."
  • Bruno's Dream
    "Murdoch's best novel since 'The Bell' . . . It is still anything but easy to assess, partly, I think, because Miss Murdoch habitually overloads her fiction . . ."
  • A Fairly Honourable Defeat
    "Melodramatic incidents and transparent stratagems, useful as they are as indicators of the novel's philosophical aspects, strain the reader's belief. Miss Murdoch has sacrificed novelistic virtues to emphasize the philosophical themes . . ."

    Joseph Malikail
    1. INTRODUCTION Among the philosophers and novelists of the last half-century, Iris Murdoch is remarkable for her preoccupation with the conception of morality or the vision of the Platonic Form of the Good; her novels depict characters in different versions and degrees of moral goodness, plausible in a contemporary setting. That preoccupation is the subject of this paper. Murdoch is a moral realist. Moral realists, whatever their differences, hold in common that there are moral truths which we are capable of recognizing and which are there for us to recognize; their existence does not depend upon our recognition of them. In a 1956 paper, "Dreams and Self- Knowledge" (ie. "Vision and Choice in Morality", Conradi 1997, 92, 95-96), she discussed the ontology of moral Goodness. How should the idea of moral Good be conceived? She stood on the side of Vision against Choice. Juxtaposition of the terms was intended to clarify her Platonic (Evans 1993, 35) perspective of post-Kantian moral philosophy, and focus a critique, positive and negative, of positions held by G.E. Moore, and of the various blends of Kantianism, utilitarianism, behaviourism and existentialism prevalent among her language-analyst contemporaries. According to Murdoch, G.E. Moore has had a major impact on ethical discourse in the century. He was one of the "Cambridge Apostles", of a generation previous to hers. The members were consistently

        First Things 50 (February 1995): 32-36. Recently the Divinity School at the University of Chicago sponsored a conference to investigate and celebrate the theological importance of the writings, especially the novels, of Iris Murdoch. The attitude expressed by many of the theologians involved was one of abject, almost pathetic, gratitude to Murdoch for taking religion seriously-not many noted artists do so, after all, nor, come to think of it, do all of the theologians themselves. Confronted with the spectacle of these highly trained men and women genuflecting in the direction of a novelist, however brilliant, one struggles to recall that theology was once named Queen of the Sciences. Metaphysics as a Guide to Morals (my copy of which weighs in at 520 pages). But when The Green Knight , her most recent novel (and at 472 pages her briefest in more than a decade), appeared in Great Britain in 1993 it became clear that the completion of Metaphysics had scarcely exhausted her energy.
