Adam Daly writes: “The Outsider-Writer is an attempt to re-launch a marginalized branch of studies that has lain somewhat dormant since Colin Wilson wrote the ‘Outsider-Cycle’ over half a century ago.” In the first volume of this monumental two-volume study, he presents lengthy assessments of some of the ‘heavyweights’ and cameos of several female Outsider-Writers including: Jean Rhys, Ann Quin, Emily Dickinson, Dorothy Richardson, Lucy Swan, Jane Gaskell and Sylvia Plath. His aim is to: “redress the balance, and in the process shake up the cosy conspiratorial consensus of the academic mainstream, the cultural establishment, and the corporate commercial market, in setting out an intransigently Radical Agenda for the emancipation of all writers who feel out of step and sympathy with fashionable literary genres, nostrums and tastes…”
