A S Byatt goes back again to the Victorian era she writes about so well and has put two novellas together Morpho Eugenia and The Conjugial Angel Both are well written and as always Byatt makes excellent use of poetry especially Tennyson s In Memoriam in the second novellaMorpho Eugenia the Latin name for a South American moth is about William Adamson and ian explorer who has returned and is consulting with Lord Alabaster a cleric who is also obsessed with moths butterflies insects and is a generally obsessive collector Adamson agrees to catalogue his collection and becomes entangled with his family and marries one of the daughters This is a suitably gothic tale and is layered with symbolism Adamson himself becomes one of the specimens There is intrigue and secrecy and Byatt plays with the surname alabaster using the whiteness of the skin of Adamson s wife to symbolize purity She then plays with the idea of the purity and decay and degeneracy underneath This is also set around the time that Darwinian ideas and the debate about evolution are taking place and the tensions around these ideas also underlay the novella There are fairly lengthy descriptions of the social life of ants which are gruesome and fascinating at the same time Matty Crompton is an interesting character and she plays the part of the intellectual foil to Adamson very well It is a satisfying and intellectually stimulating gothic taleThe Conjugial Angel takes a look at the Victorian obsession with s ances and the next world There is a tenuous link between the two stories in the form of the sea captain The main focus of the tale is Emily Jesse formerly Emily Tennyson Alfred Tennyson s sister The s ances revolve around amongst others Arthur Hallam the subject of Tennyson s poem In Memoriam Hallam was a close friend of Tennyson s who died at the age of 22 he was also engaged to Emily Tennyson The novella takes place many years after Hallam s death and after the writing of In Memoriam Byatt examines the persistence of love memory and the way the living hold onto and re interpret the dead It is also about the guilt of those who carry on living There is a bleakness about the s ances and Byatt throws in some Swedenborgian theology just to spice things up There are some masterly touches which provide symbolism and humour the pet raven and the farting dog The use of the poem is excellent and Byatt provides a master class in the meanings behind the poemTwo very good novellas providing a snapshot of the Victorian period and some of its eccentricities and hidden depths The strong characters in these tales are the women the men are mostly weak led though amiable absent opinionated or villainous The women have the inner strength and usually see the way forward Byatt writes beautifully and if you like Victorian tales this is for you Claudette Colvin Twice Toward Justice has put two novellas together Morpho Eugenia and The Conjugial Angel Both are well written and

I uickly skimmed the first page of the other reader reviews of this book and discovered that my opinion in comparing the two novellas that comprise it is opposite of most readers It seems most readers from the top page at least prefer the first novella Morpho Eugenia the Insects section to The Conjugal Angel the Angels sectionFor me Morpho Eugenia was a little disappointing I don t always need to be surprised by what I read but the characters in this novella were a bit too derivative the family secret incredibly obvious well actually the whole plot and most of the characters were either obvious or one dimensional While I am utterly in awe of Byatt s ability to replicate Victorian prose debates about science and religion I have to admit that unlike her eually brilliant but also beautiful and highly readable faux Victorian poetry and fairy tales I did not want to read her faux Victorian debates Ultimately things felt too simplistic the story just didn t hang together for meSo why the four stars Well part of it has to do with The Conjugal Angel which I ll get to in a minute But part is that despite my problems with the plot of Morpho Eugenia I have to admit that much of the imagery of the story has stuck with me Especially the parts where human and insect sex and reproduction are compared Ew but also very hauntingThe Conjugal Angel I thought was completely brilliant This could be my own personal bias in favor of stories about spiritualism but in any case I really loved it It was different from any story I ve recently read about spiritualists in that it takes the idea seriously To make it that much better one of the main characters is Alfred Tennyson s sister so there s lots of poetry and interpretation to boot plus a beautifully imagined inner life of several historical figures This novella to me approaches the achievements of Possession nearly than the first it is a gorgeous meditation on grief and love the burdens of the past and how we idolize the dead and how what is unseen to others can strangle us Plus lots of commentary on poetry and wordplay and I love getting lost in Byatt s twisty sentence structure Duffy have to admit that unlike Art of Deception Kate Hanson #2 her eually brilliant but also beautiful and Flight of the Clockwork Angels highly readable faux Victorian poetry and fairy tales I did not want to read Take her faux Victorian debates Ultimately things felt too simplistic the story just didn t La figlia del podestà hang together for meSo why the four stars Well part of it Persuasion The Litigator's Art has to do with The Conjugal Angel which I ll get to in a minute But part is that despite my problems with the plot of Morpho Eugenia I L'aventure ambiguë have to admit that much of the imagery of the story The Mangle of Practice Time Agency and Science has stuck with me Especially the parts where Love and Friendship human and insect sex and reproduction are compared Ew but also very the History of Modern Japan hauntingThe Conjugal Angel I thought was completely brilliant This could be my own personal bias in favor of stories about spiritualism but in any case I really loved it It was different from any story I ve recently read about spiritualists in that it takes the idea seriously To make it that much better one of the main characters is Alfred Tennyson s sister so there s lots of poetry and interpretation to boot plus a beautifully imagined inner life of several Laltipiano delle meraviglie historical figures This novella to me approaches the achievements of Possession nearly than the first it is a gorgeous meditation on grief and love the burdens of the past and Alan Ford Tutto per uno uno per tutti how we idolize the dead and Red Poppies A Novel of Tibet how what is unseen to others can strangle us Plus lots of commentary on poetry and wordplay and I love getting lost in Byatt s twisty sentence structure
