Abstract

Within the structural and thematic concerns of Jeanette Winterson's cycle of seven novels (1985-2000) encounters with the maze and the labyrinth are persistent though, at times, implicit. Winterson's adoption of these forms serves a three-fold purpose; firstly, to make prominent narrative experimentations, principally concerning the process of reading; secondly, to explore recurrent leitmotif (primarily of love and identity achieved or lost through journey), and finally to act as an overarching premise for the cycle of seven novels.
