Around the outsider : essays presented to Colin Wilson on the occasion of his 80th birthday by Colin Stanley( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In May 1956, aged just 24, Colin Wilson achieved success and overnight fame with his philosophical study of alienation and transcendence in modern literature and thought, The Outsider. Fifty-four years on, and never out of print in English, the book is still widely read and discussed, having been translated into over thirty languages. In a remarkably prolific career, Wilson, a true polymath, has since written over 170 titles: novels, plays and non-fiction on a variety of subjects. This volume brings together twenty essays by scholars of Colin Wilson's work worldwide and is published in his honour to mark the author's 80th birthday. Each contributor has provided an essay on their favourite Wilson book (or the one they consider to be the most significant). The result is a varied and stimulating assessment of Wilson's writings on philosophy, psychology, literature, criminology and the occult with critical appraisals of four of his most thought-provoking novels. Altogether a fitting tribute to a writer."

When the archive of the English philosopher and polymath Colin Wilson (1931-2013) was opened at the University of Nottingham, UK, in the summer of 2011, it was agreed among those present that a Conference should be arranged there to discuss his work. 2016 was mooted as an appropriate date coinciding with the sixtieth anniversary of the publication of his first (and still most famous) book, The Outsider; a book that has remained in print since publication day in May 1956 and now been translated into well over 30 languages.This volume contains the transcripts of the papers presented at that inau
