The Young Desire It possesses a relentless interiority and seldom veers for long from the consciousness of Charles or Penworth. But, with exceptional discernment, Mackenzie also charts the developing unease between Charles and his mother, as Mrs. Fox realizes that she is, slowly, inevitably, losing the son she adores. As for Margaret: Like Shakespeare’s Juliet, she is beyond compare. This is, among other things, one of the great stories of first love.
