Abstract: 

Bessie Head`s vision of the separation of the mentally sick, and her ability to give mind-suffering a kind of picture language, convey a positively medieval horror. She brilliantly develops ascending degrees of personal isolation and is very moving when she describes abating pain. Her novels – this is the third – have a way of soaring up from rock bottom to the stars, and are very shaking.
