The Rose on the Ash-Heap is the epilogue from English People -Barfield’s ambitious unpublished novel of English life between the First and Second World Wars. At once fairy tale, societal critique, romance and apocalyptic vision, it discloses the redemptive powers of love and imagination. Written in the late 1920s, a time of widespread societal and economic instability,

Owen Barfield is one of the twentieth century’s most significant writers and philosophers. Barfield’s ideas and literary artistry influenced the thinking of C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien, and won praise from many other leading literary figures of the century.

Preceding the performance there will be a series of lectures given by Owen A. Barfield (the only grandchild of Owen Barfield), Gary Lachman, and Simon Blaxland de Lange.
