Imagining Characters: Six Conversations About Women Writers
Analysts and novelists are both 'narrators of our inner lives'. Does their reading of fiction differ, or overlap? In this book A S Byatt, meets Ignes Sodre, a Brazilian psychoanalyst. In a series of vivid, enthusiastic conversations on the books they love, they bring their different backgrounds and professional experiences of 'reading' to bear on six great novels: Jane Austen's MANSFIELD PARK, Charlotte Bronte's VILLETTE, George Eliot's DANIEL DERONDA, Willa Cather's THE PROFESSOR'S HOUSE, Iris Murdoch's AN UNOFFICIAL ROSE and Toni Morrison's BELOVED.
