|For film adaptation tie-in, Bantam, 1967|
Hesperus Classics, 2003
- The Bantam version reflects my own interpretation of the story. The plot centers around the Nellie March; its her story. This image captures the sense that the events sweep her in and she finds little power within herself to redirect her life.
- The simplicity of the Hesperus edition is intriguing, and I'd be very interested to read the forward written by Doris Lessing, a fairly traditional choice for that task.
- The Total-E-Bound edition captures the rustic beauty of the story as well as the triangular relationship struggle. I could say, love triangle, however as a gothic, I see the motivating emotion as more of an obsession rather than love.
