Summary
Benjamin Britten, the greatest 20th-century English composer and one of the outstanding musicians of his age, was born in Lowestoft, Suffolk, in 1913. The East Anglian coast was to be a constant presence in his life and work. This biography follows Britten through school and college days, involvement with the Auden generation in the 1930s and self-imposed wartime exile in America, to his emergence as a central yet paradoxical figure in his country's musical life
