It is generally assumed that Janet Frame suspended the publication of some of her work in her lifetime because it was felt to be deeply personal, or potentially embarrassing for people who might recognize themselves in the portraits provided. These rationalizations fail to persuade, first because all of Frame’s published oeuvre anyway consists of a fictionalization of private existential matter, and the posthumous corpus hardly differs in this respect; and also because both Towards Another Sum- mer (2007) and In the Memorial Room (2013) feature a Kafkaesque concern with metamorphosis which serves to enhance the unrealistic tenor of the narratives, so that the novels again seem on a par with previously published self-conscious material. What is more distinctive about the new/old novels is less their allegedly embarrassing nature than their unusual degree of frontal engagement with the experience of embarrassment itself – their pondering of the pros and cons of shyness. This theme is addressed in aesthetic terms mostly. Frame’s artistic characters blush and squirm and writhe in ways which confirm the role played by embarrassment as an inadvertent recognition of, and an unwilling subscription to, an oppressive societal norm. Yet it can be shown that Frame, true to her customary dialectical mode of conceptualization, simultaneously uses embarrassment as a decentring strategy allowing the novels to work towards an exposure of so-called social normality. This exposure is achieved through a systematic policy of borrowing from, and testily reproducing, those very limited and limiting expressive codes which were found mortifying in the first place.

This paper probes the connections between Rainer Maria Rilke and Janet Frame, emphasizing the temperamental and aesthetic similarities linking the two writers, and examining in particular the differential quality which informs an approach to prose-writing characterized by its constant gesturing towards poetry. While Frame's recourse to a modernist idiom seems to privilege an intense focus on her own artistic medium, felt to be divorced from any easily recognizable existential reality, it can be shown that her linguistic utopia, unlike Rilke's, finally fails to incorporate the promise of a restoration of reference or 'fullness' that would follow upon its realization within the text.

This essay attempts to address Janet Frame’s fondness for strategies of literal expression, a formal aspect of her work often pinpointed by the critics but never examined systematically, perhaps because it displays a mercurial quality, inseparable from the author’s wit, which resists easy classification. What can be established at any rate is that Frame’s leaning towards literality cannot be dissociated from her interest in metaphor – rather as if the literal, by virtue of constituting the ground zero of metaphor, implicitly pointed to further layers of meaning subliminally encoded in her texts. Thus it is argued that the literal in Frame tends to gesture towards its equivalent in metaphor, and vice versa, in a way which can be correlated with her thematic preoccupation with another shift of levels, occurring whenever she stages a creative personality keen to transform the ontological given provided by the real in terms of intuited correspondences in a more visionary dimension.
