Henry Hardy, Timothy Garton Ash, David Herman, and Robert Cottrell
30 October 18
A panel discussion under the auspices of the Oxford Centre for Life-Writing, chaired by Robert Cottrell, to mark the publication of Henry Hardy's new book: IN SEARCH OF ISAIAH BERLIN: A LITERARY ADVENTURE (I.B. Tauris), with the author, Timothy Garton Ash and David Herman. Henry Hardy has been Berlin's principal editor since 1974, and has now (co-)edited eighteen of his books, and a four-volume edition of his letters. He is one of the three original trustees of the Isaiah Berlin Literary Trust, set up by Berlin in 1996 to handle his literary affairs. â€˜An extraordinary book, IN SEARCH OF ISAIAH BERLIN tells the story of a twenty-five year collaboration between Isaiah Berlin and his editor, Henry Hardy, told via previously unpublished letters that are as delightful as they are revealing of Berlinâ€™s personality and ideas.â€™ Michael Ignatieff, Berlin's biographer.
