Who was Dorothy Richardson? Dorothy Richardson pioneered the modern psychological novel with her great work Pilgrimage. More than 45 years ago before Joyce, before Virginia Woolf she explored the new narrative technique that we know now as stream-of-consciousness writing. Her subject was woman: every facet of what it meant to be a rebelling feminine spirit in Victorian England. With great beauty and aesthetic insight she portrayed the moment-to-moment quality of feminine reality. The effect is dramatic and immediate, making Pilgrimage a landmark in the history of modern literature. Author Warren E. Blake's reading of Pilgrimage explains the exhaustive brilliance of Richardson's performance and brings to the foreground the conflict resulting when a logical mind denies itself. Now, shortly after her death, a book is needed to supplement the revival of interest in Dorothy Richardson. Blake leads the way with his brilliant study.
