Pilgrimage Pointed Roofs By Dorothy Richardson Classic Novels for Women Dorothy Miller Richardson (17 May 1873 - 17 June 1957) was a British author and journalist. Author of Pilgrimage, a sequence of 13 novels, she was one of the earliest modernist novelists to use stream of consciousness as a narrative technique. Richardson also emphasizes in Pilgrimage the importance and distinct nature of female experiences. 'Miriam left the gaslit hall and went slowly upstairs. The March twilight lay upon the landings, but the staircase was almost dark. The top landing was quite dark and silent. There was no one about. It would be quiet in her room. She could sit by the fire and be quiet and think things over until Eve and Harriett came back with the parcels. She would have time to think about the journey and decide what she was going to say to the Fraulein. Her new Saratoga trunk stood solid and gleaming in the firelight. To-morrow it would be taken away and she would be gone. The room would be altogether Harriett's. It would never have its old look again. She evaded the thought and moved clumsily to the nearest window. The outline of the round bed and the shapes of the may-trees on either side of the bend of the drive were just visible. There was no escape for her thoughts in this direction. The sense of all she was leaving stirred uncontrollably as she stood looking down into the well-known garden. Out in the road beyond the invisible lime-trees came the rumble of wheels. The gate creaked and the wheels crunched up the drive, slurring and stopping under the dining-room window.'… (mais)

Volume 1 (Pointed Roofs, Backwater, Honeycomb): finished 17 Mar 2019.

This volume contains the first 3 novels of Richardson's Pilgrimage series of 13. This series is considered the first of stream-of consciousness novels, but it is nothing like Virginia Woolf. It is much more readable. It is also semi-autobiographical, which explains how well Richardson can describe the inner thoughts, feelings, and worries of Miriam.

Pointed Roofs: 4 stars. Miriam, about age 17, learns of her father's financial difficulties and decides to help. She takes a job as a governess in Germany. Much of the novel consists of her internal thoughts and doubts, and happiness when she is happy. She is somewhat homesick and constantly questions her German and French skills. She really just wants to play piano. Richardson does a very good job of showing the anxiety and doubts of a young woman raised upper middle class but now working.

Backwater: 3 stars. Miriam has left Germany and is now at a semi-boarding school in north London. She is much less happy here, though just as in doubt of her abilities. She finds, upon leaving, that her students love her. She really misses the school in Germany. Meanwhile, two of her sisters are engaged and the whole dating scene (such as it is among the upper middle class) stresses her out. She desperately wants to be married herself, but is also terrified of being married. She is about age 18-19, being there for 15-18 months.

Honeycomb: 3 stars. Miriam has left the north London school and has found a position as governess to 2 children in an upper class household. One of her future brothers-in-law has helped her find this place. She loves the house, but goes back and forth over how much she likes the family and their friends. She realizes she is more a glorified babysitter than a teacher, as children of this class don't really need to know anything, or so she thinks. Meanwhile her sisters are getting married, she has some prospects but again, is also terrified of them. She is a bit of a rebel, and has begun smoking and visits one of her prospects at his bachelor apartment. Her mother is also sick, and the book ends with her caring for her mother at the seaside.
