Thoughts on the development of the project ‘Songs between heaven and hell’
by Alfred Polansky
Malcolm Lowry (1909-1957) was a British writer whose desperate restlessness finds its poetic expression in a linguistic mystic symbolism. His main work is the brilliant novel „Under the volcano“ (filmed under the direction of John Huston, with Albert Finney, Jacqueline Bisset, a.o.). Besides writing he paid a nearly sacred attention to the alcohol which accompanied him, along with fear and hope, for a lifetime. Lowry spent many working years together with his wife Margerie Bonner between Canada, the United States and Mexico. During a stay in England he died probably through suicide in 1957.
