'This article argues that Rowley's attempt to narrate Stead's life is hampered by Rowley's choice of narrative form. ... While this form of narrative works well enough for the years in which Stead was a public achiever, it is less well-adapted to describing the life led by Stead as she became frail and elderly' (119).
