Abstract

Dorothy Richardson’s semi-autobiographical ‘Pilgrimage’ series was published between 1915 and 1967. Interim is the fifth instalment in which she attempts to create a character, Miriam, who embodies the female ‘quest for the essence of human experience’ (J.C. Powys). In literature, Richardson (1873-1957) is important because she was one of the first modern novelists to use a ‘stream of consciousness’ technique in her work. This narrative experiment predates that of Virginia Woolf and James Joyce. Richardson actually hated the term, calling it in 1949, ‘that lamentably meaningless metaphor’.
