Patrick White alty for giving too much too soon. But he owed it to her-to them. Bless you,’ he said, ‘Mother. He kissed the claw which had finally disentangled itself from his hair, and distinctly felt the sympathy streaming out towards him, the rapport he was establishing with the whole auditorium

Patrick White was a psychologically bottomless writer and in his merciless analysis of the family relationships in The Eye of the Storm he is gloomily and colourfully sarcastic. Alas, no, hardly anybody has tackled it so at this stage I am free to interpret it any way I like and few but experts skulking in academia will be any the wiser.

From this simple scenario Patrick White unfurls a monumental exploration of the tides of love and hate, comedy and tragedy, impotence and and longing that fester within family relationships.

But, in death as in life, Elizabeth remains a destructive force on those who surround her. THE EYE OF THE STORM is a savage exploration of family relationships - and the sharp undercurrents of love and hate, comedy and tragedy, which define them.
