The second volume in Guy Butler's autobiography. In Bursting World, Butler bursts out of his sober small-town boyhood: first into four years of heady freedom as a student at Rhodes University College, Grahamstown. Here he made zestful forays into the worlds of art(he wished to be a painter as well as a poet), Anglo-Catholicism and atheistic communism)he was questioning everything), and alcohol(because it had been forbidden). He evokes the intellectual turmoil of campus life as the world lurched towards war, while in South Africa racial prejudices and customs were crystallizing into political doctrines.
