Muriel Spark's The prime of Miss Jean Brodie
Part of the Scotnotes Study Guides series
Muriel Spark's arch, subversive novel entertains us with its amusing, nostalgic evocation of the 1930s schooldays of a group of middle-class Edinburgh girls - then forces us to face up to the easy surface charms, and darker undercurrents, of Miss Jean Brodie's perfect self-assurance. David Robb's SCOTNOTE study guide untangles the many aspects of this novel - historical, political, psychological and religious - and is an ideal guide for senior school pupils and students at all levels.
