The novel asks whether we have free will or not and confronts its characters with the monstrous consequences of repressing what little “real life” they have in themselves, a life so far removed from their natural states that it appears to them as something terrible and destructive. The house and its surrounding gardens are described as “a chemical retort in which the human elements are brought together for the reader to observe the resulting reaction.
