By Bianca Rosa Hart

Travelling a different road

Winston Graham (Author of the Poldark cycle of novels) is a spellbinding storyteller and his outline of the relationship between Captain Ross Poldark and George Warleggan is a web of jealousy, competition, grudging regard, blind hatred and a tense mutual fascination. This book follows these two characters in a totally different close of play.

A “white swan” flaps over the storyline. An accident gives Ross and George the choice between a devastating fight or an increasing understanding laying bare and overcoming their unyielding conflict and a shame both are trying to keep hidden.

Bianca Rosa Hart

The Author of Treasures of Darkness describes herself as a psychotherapist with a medical background; she lives in southern England (she was born abroad) and this is her third book.

She has been watching the BBC1 serial Poldark episodes in 2015 and after reading the books of the Poldark family saga by Winston Graham she has imagined a different narrative in which Elizabeth will not be the unintended victim of a fierce rivalry between the male protagonists: Ross and George. Their enmity and the family feud will be resolved. The drama she presents here is a process of reconciliation: it explores the themes of justice, reparation and forgiveness from a psychological viewpoint within an ethical and historical perspective. The main theme is the process of awareness: rethinking past events with others also involved, negotiating judgement, justice and forgiveness in a small family circle; related is the possibility of truth and fairness in our economic and financial system.

The “work of memory and mourning” leading to reconciliation is a process of psychological shifts in both George and Ross. The philosopher Paul Ricoeur describes the “work of memory and mourning” as a foundation for forgiveness.

Bianca Rosa Hart sides with modernity against post-modern views. She argues that in twentieth century Europe we may have lost sight of essential elements of our humanity and asks how we may retrace our steps and change our path: resolving conflict within society in a mediation that does not sacrifice truth.
