Life and Death of Harriett Frean (Modern Library)

Life and Death of Harriett Frean (Modern Library) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“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 of

stream-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.

About the Author

May Sinclair (1863-1946), poet, translator, critic, fiction writer, womans suffrage advocate, and co-founder of a pioneering psychoanalytic clinic, was one of the most popular female British novelists of the early twentieth century. Her twenty-four novels include Mary Olivier: A Life and The Three Sisters.

Francine Proses most recent book is The Lives of the Muses: Nine Women & the Artists They Inspired. A contributing editor at Harpers, she is the author of ten books of fiction, including Blue Angel, a 2000 National Book Award finalist.
