Abstract:

This work is a study of the gradual breakdown of a kept woman who is no longer kept. The parting from Mr. Mackenzie marks the downward turning point in Julia's life, a depressing one at best, though one with a few illusions. It is the loss of these that Julia is not able to face. Spiritually isolated and lacking a means of support, Julia attempts to return to her sister and invalid mother. After a devastatingly bleak encounter, the sisters remain as morally and spiritually isolated from each other as their mother, the victim of a stroke, remains from them.
