Abstract

More than a minor intertext to the contemporaneous Bowen's Court, Elizabeth Bowen's Seven Winters: Memories of a Dublin Childhood displays an interest in issues of memory and representation that are also to be discerned in many of Bowen's essays from this period and these can provide a new context for the neglected memoir. Seven Winters is also a meditation on the development of subjectivity within a specific historical and cultural context, charting the development of a writerly sensibility and this aspect of the text can also shed new light on the rest of her oeuvre.
