S. Byatt when she began to write The Shadow of the Sun. What theories of creative identity, authorship and art can one infer from A. S. Byatt’s portraits of these people? Introducing The Shadow of the Sun A. S. Byatt’s debut tells the story of a very hot summer and a stormy autumn in the life of a creative family in the North of England. The novel is divided into two parts. In the ﬁrst part the characters are introduced: Caroline Severell is married to Henry Severell, a famous novelist. They have two children – Jeremy and Anna.
In other words, they refuse to consider the subject of ‘female identity’ as a depressing end to their ﬁctional investigations or imaginative freedom. They see it as the beginning, as an enabling literary subject. For in the ﬁctional criticism of old images lies the reconstruction of new tales of female identity. Conclusion I have discussed the many voices which address the reader of Byatt’s critical work and the sustained ambivalence resulting from their interplay. They are, at different levels, divided within themselves: as we have seen, the ﬁrst and most dominant speaker in her critical work is the Leavisite thinker.
Given this problematic 38 A. S. Byatt background, it is no wonder that A. S. Byatt says in the foreword that the ‘battle’ of writing her ﬁrst novel ‘fought itself out between sexuality, literary criticism, and writing’ (p. xiii). The focus of my reading of The Shadow of the Sun is how this battle shaped itself narratively. I want to know what happens when such a young and desperate novelist goes right to the heart of her creative anxieties by writing an artist-novel in which the main characters are a male writer and a seventeen-year-old girl – the writer’s daughter – who is herself an aspiring writer and one year younger than A.
