Sinclair was a suffragist and modernist who also was influenced by Freud and psychoanalysis. Sinclair is an accomplished novelist, but most of her work is rather puzzlingly out of print. This is a study of the Victorian notion of women and their role.
And each time the Baby Harriett laughed. The sound of her laugh was so funny that she laughed again at that; she kept on laughing, with shriller and shriller squeals. I wonder why she thinks it's funny," her mother said. Ironic, brief and intensely realised, The Life and Death of Harriett Frean is a brilliant study of female virtue seen as vice, and stands with the work of Virgina Woolf and Dorothy Richardson as one of the great innovative novels of the century.
And each time the Baby Harriett laughed. Her father considered it.

Harriet’s actions – towards Robin, and in other decisions she later makes – have unforeseen consequences. The Life and Death of Harriet Frean satirises the upper middle classes, and their way of life. Harriet is so busy behaving beautifully and congratulating herself on it that she totally fails to see the destructive nature of her decisions and the devastating effect they have on both herself and others. I actually really enjoyed this strange little novel which was sent to me some months ago by Belva from the Librarything Virago group.
Never didactic, The Life and Death of Harriett Frean is a novel which, whilst written as an elegy for unemancipated women, can now be applied to anybody who wastes their lives thinking of everybody but themselves. 18 people found this helpful. I’m a huge fan of May Sinclair and this totally lived up to expectation. She’s a brilliant writer. Delves unflinchingly right into the psychological core of her characters.

Harriett Frean is a well-to-do, unmarried woman living a life of meaningless dependency, boredom, and unproductivity as she patiently cares for her aging parents, waiting for a man to marry. Can she make something meaningful of her life without significant others? May Sinclair, as always gently ironic in tone, succeeds in skewering the conventions of her society while laying bare the hopeless realities for so many women of the era who were given so few chances really to live.
