The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
Miss Jean Brodie, a teacher at the Marcia Blaine School for Girls in Edinburgh, was a woman unmistakably in her prime. An admirer of Garibaldi, an expert on Charlotte Bronté's love lives, she wielded a benevolently despotic influence over the six girls who comprised the "Brodie set."
Each of them was famous in her own right: Monica for mathematics, Rose for sex, Eunice for gymnastics, Sandy for her small eyes, Jenny for her beauty, and Mary for being a silent lump. Each was, in her own special way, totally devoted to Miss Brodie. And yet, one of them was to betray her —in a most unBrodie-like fashion. It is the complex unraveling of the who? how? and why? of this betrayal that has enabled Muriel Spark to bring into play all of her remarkable powers as a novelist.
