The Death of the Heart

The Death of the Heart is perhaps Elizabeth Bowen’s best-known book. As she deftly and delicately exposes the cruelty that lurks behind the polished surfaces of conventional society, Bowen reveals herself as a masterful novelist who combines a sense of humor with a devastating gift for divining human motivations.

In this piercing story of innocence betrayed set in the thirt

In this piercing story of innocence betrayed set in the thirties, the orphaned Portia is stranded in the sophisticated and politely treacherous world of her wealthy half-brother’s home in London. There she encounters the attractive, carefree cad Eddie. To him, Portia is at once child and woman, and he fears her gushing love. To her, Eddie is the only reason to be alive. But when Eddie follows Portia to a sea-side resort, the flash of a cigarette lighter in a darkened cinema illuminates a stunning romantic betrayal–and sets in motion one of the most moving and desperate flights of the heart in modern literature.

    “Bowen is a major writer….She is what happened after Bloomsbury….the link that connects Virginia Woolf with Iris Murdoch and Muriel Spark.” -Victoria Glendinning

    Portia is sixteen and orphaned and sent to live with her half-brother and sister-in-law in 1930s London. Portia is extremely sensitive and extremely average. She moves from the bohemian countryside in Switzerland to an extremely elegant, tasteful but cold and aloof home in downtown London.

    In her brother’s home Portia is slowly maligned, mocked and used by her sister-in-law and her young lover. Portia is defenseless, vulnerable and does not know about the cruelties of society and how due to her status can never measure up.

    As I read this book I had a consistent lump in my throat. So very sad. Sad because Portia due to her gender, socioeconomic limitations and most of all naïve and sweet character would not be able to survive in a world where feminine boredoms and cattishness and male dominance and caddishness would chew her up and spit her out and leave her in a most desperate predicament.

    This book is psychologically brilliant and written with interpersonal understanding that few writers are able to achieve.
