But marriage to Charles turns out be far from liberating and soon Marianne finds herself living in a basement flat, with a cramped, ignoble bathroom, and a way of life that is far from her hopes. Life, it seems, is going on elsewhere. But Charles' mother starts feeding her with books - classics, feminist essays, fine literature - and soon Marianne realises that there is a whole bright world unfolding before her.
