"...a story of passion carried to within sight of the highest classical pitch. It must be one of the most cleverly and intricately constructed novels in the English language, a marvel of craftsmanship in which skill is given its proper duty: to increase the tension at every phase and, above all, to hide itself and increase the emotion of characters and reader....[It] is a major performance and one of the important novels in this century."
V. S. Pritchett, New York Times Book Review, 9/16/1951Review:
"In the hands of a better writer this jointure of events might well have articulated into one of the finest pictures in any language. Its facts are true, in the main. Its theme beautiful. It is tragic in the best sense that the Greeks knew tragedy, that tragedy for which there is no solution. But to achieve a high result in any book its component characters must of necessity stand forth unmistakable in their moods or characteristics. In this one they do not....You are never really stirred. You are never hurt. You are merely told and referred. It is all cold narrative, never truly poignant."
