Excerpt
Preface: [to Bryher's Development] BY AMY LOWELL. Date:1920. THIS is a singular book; in many ways, a remarkable book. To any one interested in the reasons why of personality (as I confess myself to be), it cannot fail to provoke attention. The autobiographic novel has an illustrious ancestry, the autobiography masquerading as novel is almost as numerous a clan. Is Development the granddaughter of Jane Eyre or of Obermann? If the former, Nancy is a finely conceived character - study; if the latter, we are face to face with a young lady the least to be said of whom is that she is unlike anybody else. This is the record of the growth--not yet of a soul, that may come--but of a mind. Through a series of deft touches, we see a small, lonely, imaginative child gradually evolving into an artist.
