Bowen, Marjorie: Julia Roseingrave. v1. 10 Feb 2023

Bowen’s writings present recurring themes of darkness, the supernatural, and the gothic in combination with the historical.

I am conflicted on how to categorize this one...

Here is a strange story of love, seduction, and a woman desperate to escape her constrained country life.

— — — —
The tale opens with the Devil knocking on the door of a lonely country house and requesting a room for the night. At its center is a love story between the rich and dissolute young aristocrat, Sir William Notley, and the beautiful Julia Roseingrave. Whether it be witchcraft (she is very friendly with the local wise woman and herb gatherer, Goody Cloke) or heart-craft and psychological fencing of the highest order is a question the novel leaves fringed with mystery. The plot is driven forward by interlocking romantic triangles that finally resolve into repentant stability for one of these two, and bitter isolation for the other.
