summary The Warlow Experiment ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF The year is 1792 and Herbert Powyss is set on making his name as a scientist He is determined to study the effects of prolonged solitude on another human being though before now Powyss's sole subjects have been the plants in his greenhouse He fills three rooms beneath Moreham House with books paintings and even a pianoforte then puts out an advertis. A reward of 50 a year for life is offered to any man who will undertake to live for 7 years underground without seeing a human face to let his toe and fingernails grow during the whole of his confinement together with his beard Commodious apartments are provided with cold bath chamber organ as many books as the occupier shall desire Provisions will be served from Mr Powyss s table Every convenience desired will be providedHerbert Powyss Moreham House Herefordshire January 1793The premise of this novel would have been incredible were if not for the fact that it is based on facts which actually occurred In an Author s note at the end of the book Alix Nathan uotes an extract from the Annual Register for 1797 which describes the terms of the experiment or less as reproduced in the introductory uote and adds that it appears that an occupier offered himself for this singular residence who is now in the fourth year of his probation a labouring man who has a large family all of whom are maintained by Mr P This nugget of curious information is all the tantalizing because there appears to be no account of the aftermath of this real life experiment Nathan intrigued by the narrative opportunities of this episode wrote two related short stories An Experiment Above and An Experiment Below reflecting respectively the point of view of the scientist and subject These stories eventually formed the basis of The Warlow Experiment in which a wider canvas allows the author to enlarge her cast of characters and dwell longer on the historical backdrop We do not know the motivations of the real life Powyss Nathan s is a recluse who prefers the company of his books and music at his residence Moreham Hall to the idle entertaining which seems to be expected of him With no family a frosty relationship with his servants and just one or less like minded friend his only dream is of being recognized in scientific circles This is what he sets out to do with his uniue experiment Shockingly he does not seem to take into account the fact that his subject being a human being this would raise ethical issues Powyss dogged determination is not tempered with enough humanity to make him realize that the conseuences of his actions could be tragic This seems to dawn on him only when he gets to know better Mrs Warlow whom he supports during the course of the experiment Not unexpectedly he becomes attracted to this woman so different from himself in class background education and temperament this ironically makes him uestion the correctness of the experiment whilst only complicating an already explosive situationNathan has drawn a compelling story out of the bare bones of the Annual Register account The three part narrative arc of the novel is satisfying although some of the scenes especially the final one feels contrived and I particularly admired the different voices and points of view which are very well brought out The contrasting narrators obviously reflect the origin of The Warlow Experiment as two short stories but the novel also includes the voices of other characters including Mrs Warlow The characterization is complex in this respect one of the figures I liked best was the housemaid Catherine whom we see developing from a frankly rather unpleasant young woman to a steely determined and big hearted figureThe novel also works wonderfully as historical fiction The late 18th Century was a period of philosophical and scientific inuiry but was also possibly for the same reasons a period of social turbulence with revolutionary ideas sweeping across Europe This backdrop serves to highlight the social themes of the book Indeed the experiment brings out the inherent injustices of a classist and patriarchal society Powyss seems to expect that a gentleman of his background would be interested in becoming a hermit for science He does not stop to consider that the only person who might wish to give up his liberty for a pension of fifty pounds would likely be someone financially desperate Despite Powyss s attempts at being humane the nature of the experiment itself turns Warlow into a dehumanised subject and only serves to accentuate the divide between classes Moreover it is suggested that at all levels of society it is women who suffer most the educated and enlightened Powyss his progressive friend Fox the firebrand Abraham Price with his dreams of euality all become selfish and rapacious where women are concerned At the same time women are portrayed as the instigators of hope and redemption In this respect this is a worthy addition to a number of recent historical novels with a feminist streakVisit for a complete review including music by composers mentioned in the novel

summary The Warlow Experiment ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ement hoping for a gentleman recluseThe only man desperate enough to apply is John Warlow a semi literate farm labourer who needs to support his wife Hannah and their six children Cut off from nature and the turning of the seasons Warlow soon begins losing his grip on sanity Above ground Powyss finds yet another distraction from his greenhouse in th. I received this book from Serpent s Tail in exchange for an honest reviewIn 1793 Welshman Herbert Powyss does not want his name to fall into obscurity and decides to conduct an experiment about the effects of a seven year solitude on a man s behavior After constructing underground rooms Powyss employs semi literate John Warlow to live there His clothes and food will be provided for him but he won t see or speak to another person for over half a decade Things begin to unravel as Warlow s thoughts wander in the darkness and Powyss becomes acuainted with Warlow s wifeThis was an unsettling yet addictive read about a man s slow descent into madness and you really do wonder what you would do in such a situation I really enjoyed Warlow s POV which was fairly uneducaed but some of things he obsevered were realy interesting and what he would write in his diary There s definitely an ick feeling when reading this too because it s obvious that Warlow isn t washing himself or cleaning his surroundings so it s not too long before he s wading through filth and describing all the creepy crawlies on his own body let alone in his chambersPowyss as a character was annoying mostly due to his selfishness and his entitled air to the point that he didn t act entitled but he never really thought about anyone else It is really intersting that he himself is an extremely solitary person and he decided to undertake such an experiment on someone else I did find the relationship between Hannah and Powyss a bit predictable I liked the POV of Catherine one of the maids as someone slightly impartial to everything else going on One of the things I wasn t mad on in this story was probably the revolutionary side plot At the time of the novel one of the French revolutions is ongoing and some men are beginning to think of overthrowing their masters on English soil as well I wouldn t have a massive interest in the French Revolution or French history in particular so I found myself impatient in these parts to get back to Powyss and Warlow mostly Warlow as his POV was so rivetingThe flip near the end of the book of Powyss s and Warlow s living situations really struck me and I thought it cleverly done I did very much enjoy this book and how it all played out I also love that Powyss and Warlow are based on real people and a real experiment and Alix Nathan has put her own spin on it
