The first of a four-volume work by Dorothy Richardson, this novel records the life of Miriam Henderson. Through her experience - personal, spiritual, intellectual - the author explores what it means to be a woman. 'Pilgrimage' was the first expression in English of what it is to be called 'stream of conciousness' technique, predating the work of both Joyce and Woolf, echoing that of Proust with whom Dorothy Richardson stands as one of the great innovatory figures of our time. These four volumes record in detail the life of Miriam Henderson. Through her experience - personal, spiritual, intellectual - Dorothy Richardson explores intensely what it means to be a woman, presenting feminine conciousness with a new voice, a new identity.One of the real achievements of our time... Miss Richardson has achieved a miracle of performance - Rebecca West
