We all have different sets of realities

It's difficult to parse a 2000 page novel; whether presented in 13 books or 4 volumes, that is what this is: a major, singular novel that took the vast majority of Richardson's life to compose.

Starts with Miriam returning to London and her job, there's the man in her life who Miriam seems to feel doesn't understand her or what she feels. There's a new place to live and new house mates.
There's also the suffragettes, a movement whic

Wow!

DMR's Pilgrimage took me a long time but I can now say I finally done did it. You can be sure she is truly one of the best as far as stream of consciousness comes and also she is one of the best when we talk about gaps in narrative.

I will say at this point that silence is also one of her strong themes across all books, on this same line I will also say that after reading DMR...all descriptives ( a term I coined to describe rooms, places, situations, people et al.) by other writers seem to al
