Dorothy Richardson

Richardson, Dorothy M.

Dorothy M. Richardson, 1882–1957, English novelist. Her important work is Pilgrimage (12 vol., 1915–38; omnibus ed. 1938), a novel that records in great detail the inner experience of one woman. In constructing the English novel as a series of images running through the mind of a character, Richardson prefigured Joyce and Woolf. She preferred the label "interior monologue" to stream of consciousness for her work.

See biography by J. Rosenberg (1973); studies by C. R. Blake (1960) and H. Gregory (1967).
