The Woman in Black - Chapter Summaries
Chapter 1 - Christmas Eve
Step 2
Step 3
Step 4
Step 5
Important Points:
Kipps now lives at Monk's Piece, after falling in love with it at first sight - introduces idea of isolated locations, "air of remoteness and isolation"
Kipps' "spirits have for many years now been excessively affected by the ways of the weather" - Why?
Immediate use of pathetic fallacy before mentioning this links to future use of the technique - contrast between "sweetly scented" air and the "wretched weather" today
We learn that Kipps is a widower - Esme = 2nd wife - What happened to his first wife?
Reference to "earlier experiences" and "past events" - link to his "occasional nervous illnesses and conditions"?
Mr Bentley = introduces theme of death - " died in his 82nd year"
Pony + Trap introduced - links to past events
Ghost stories = commonplace on Christmas Eve - affects Kipps severely for some reason
Appears to hint that he has experienced a true paranormal event - nothing like the sterotypes presented by the children - "not so... so laughable", "altogether more terrible"
He has a "true story, a story of hauntingand evil, fear and confusion, horror and tragedy." - Kipps decides to "exorcize" his "hauntings" and write his story.
