    From around page 80 until Edward Burne Jones' death I give this book 5 stars The description of his correspondence with May Gaskell and her family was just riveting and the exerpts of the actual letters made me nearly giddy He was not just an amazing painter but apparently uite lyrical with his pen A vast amount of this b

E painter's life As she read and uestions were raised why did Burne Jones feel he had to protect May from an overwhelming sadness What was the deep secret she had confided to him And what was the tragic truth behind beautiful Amy's wayward wandering life her strange marriage and her unexplained early dea I liked the story and some of the family history But what I have a supreme problem is her reliance on the rhetorical uestions Like Kathyrn hughes mentions They are overly dramatic and make you think something definite will be revealed And sadly not so much Abit torn It is interesting but I wanted Pre Raph stuff From Kathyrn Hughes review of A Profound Secret these relentlessly rhetorical uestions annoying They are nothing compared with the endless unanswered ueries Dim bleby throws out in the course of this breathless book Chapter four in fact ends with three on the trot the final one of which asks urgently Was it melodramatic of me to wonder if Burne Jones could have had a premonition of Amy s fate At which point one wants to jump into the text and stamp on the uestion marks until they lie defeated unable to perform their annoying trick of gesturing towards openness while stubbornly refusing to take the argument in any particular direction
