The Last and the First was Ivy Compton-Burnett's final novel. In it she deals with her familiar themes - tyranny, power, and corruption. Although the novel was unfinished at the time of her death, in 1969, it combines the brilliant wit and incisive insight into human relationships that make her one of the most original novelists in English literature.
