The Key of the Field
Published:   1923
Publisher:Alfred A. Knopf

T.F. Powys' first novel is remarkable for its sustained symbolism; the movement towards death is a central theme. Only two chapters have titles, summer and autumn, which encompasses a process of change from maturity to decay that generates the logic and symbolism of the book. Black bryony is a poisonous plant which leads to one of the novel's central concerns of the acceptance of death and its effect upon the living. (From Geoffrey Tomlinson's article, "Black Bryony and the Acceptability of Death") [Suggest a different description.]
