Dostępność: aktualnie niedostępny
In a few short pages, writes Francine Prose in her Introduction, May Sinclair succeeds in rendering the oppressive weight and strength of the chains of family love. Young Harriett Frean is taught that behaving beautifully is paramount, and she becomes a self-sacrificing woman whose choices prove devastating to herself and to those who love her most. An early pioneer ofstream-of-consciousness writing, Sinclair employs the technique brilliantly in this finely crafted psychological novel. Evoking the style and depth of her contemporaries Virginia Woolf and D. H. Lawrence, Sinclairs haunting narrative also reflects her keen interest in the theories of Jung and Freud. The text of this Modern Library 20th Century Rediscovery was set from the first American edition of 1922.From the Trade Paperback edition.
