In response to Benzine Ring, written by Cassia on November 09, 1997 at 17:27:46
] Sorry, if I've missed any or if I've repeated. If we laid all the triplets beside one another they'd form a benzine ring. Everyone and everthing is connected, no one,(even a solicitor with about four lines) is left alone despite the isolation of their lives. Isolation, which is a major theme in modern novels. Byatt seems to say look again, we still connect, we can't help connecting (even the Croppers of the World) if we just take a moment to see. We all touch.
Another great idea! Shall we make a hexagonal quilt? There are 3 dolls too, aren't there?
'One had gold silken hair, faded and grey with the dust. One had a kind of bunched white nightcap, in white dimity edged with lace. One had black hair, pulled back in a circular bun.'
Christabel, Blanche and Ellen, do you guess?
