Fire and Hemlock is one of Diana Wynne Jones haunting books with characters situations and references that linger long after a first reading It s well known that the plot outline is taken from Northern ballads recounting the stories of Young Tam Lin and Thomas the Rhymer especially as she heads each chapter with uotes from the ballads and refers explicitly to the tales in her text The tales of a young man lured to the Otherworld by a fairy and in the case of Tam Lin then rescued by a young woman are purloined and brought into the 20th century along with a heady mix of The Golden Bough and a whole host of other plots and characters Thomas Lynn is the young man Laurel his fairy ueen and young Polly whom we follow from just before she starts secondary education to when she is in her first year at Oxford is Tom s apparent saviour We also get to meet Polly s dysfunctional family her grandmother and her school friends along with Tom s associates both human and otherworldly The novel succeeds on a human level largely because it seems to have a autobiographical flavour to it Polly like Jones is drawn to books even though her parents largely disapprove and like Jones is able to create other realities through the power of story Jones book references uite apart from their relevance to the plot as when Tom insists that Polly reads the book on fairy tales he has sent her must be a good indicator of Diana s own childhood and adult reading matter Joan Aiken s The Wolves of Willoughby Chase is one of the first mentioned published in 1962 not too long before Jones embarked on her own writing career and which may have been an inspiration then there s some E Nesbit stories Treasure Island The Three Musketeers of course and tales of King Arthur a running theme in many of Diana s books most obviously in The Merlin Conspiracy and Hexwood Another long recognised influence on Fire and Hemlock is T S Eliot s Four uartets principally the images and structure though many of Jones potential young adult readership would remain less aware of this as I was until it was pointed out to meThere are so many avenues to explore in this tantalising novel but I will begin by thinking about the significance of names I ll start with the fairy who seduces the Tom Lin character Laurel or to give her the names she has in the Will reading which takes place early in the novel Eudora Mabel Lorelei Perry Lynn Leroy Eudora good excellent gift was one of the Greek sea nymphs but perhaps the name is used rather ironically here as is Mabel from French aimable loveable Lorelei of course is the siren of the Rhine a literary creation apparently a river nymph who ensnared passing males Perry probably originally of Welsh origin ap Hari son of Harry here is probably a reference to peri an exotic alternative name for a fairy Lynn of course was her married name while Leroy is the surname of her new husband Morton Leroy is from French le roi the king referring to Seb s father as an Oberon type of Fairy King The other father figure in Polly s life is her own weak willed dad Reg whose name also harks back to Latin rex regis king It s all rather Golden Bough isn t it Jones of course dwells on this at length later the the bookLorelei naturally got anglicised as Laurel The bay laurel is used in cooking but it is advisable not to eat the whole leaves as they can damage internal organs so I suppose this is appropriate for Polly s adversary Another bane of Polly s life is her mother Ivy poison perhaps by name and certainly poison by nature though this being Britain where there is no poison ivy the smothering nature of the parasitic ivy is what is being alluded to Another little etymological puzzle the enigmatic Mary Fields what s her role She is of course a natural rival for Tom s affections with Polly Whittacker white acreThe novel has three locations London Oxford and Bristol all three of which are places where DWJ lived and which reflect on the part autobiographical nature of Fire and Hemlock Somewhere in the middle of this triangle must be Middleton hence its name perhaps Nearby Stow on the Water is a mash up of two real places in the Cotswolds Bourton on the Water a largish village characterised by lots of pedestrian bridges over the river and presumably liable to flooding and Stow on the Wold which exactly matches up with the description of the fictional Stow except the market cross is recent than the Saxon period In Jones fictional England topography and atmosphere are similar to but not the same as the real England of the mid 80s and are her attempt to transfer the world of the Scottish Border ballads to the southern Britain that she knew wellOxford gets a relatively short space in the novel while Jones went to St Anne s College Polly in the novel goes to St Margaret s St Margaret s is the novel s version of the real life Lady Margaret Hall another college founded for women students and this college s coat of arms is instructive First of all it features a portcullis the gate features in the incident in a Ghost Castle at the fair and secondly the motto is Souvent me souviens I often remember highly appropriate for one of the overarching themes of the novel Possibly coincidentally there is an early years school in Headington Oxford called Hunsdon House which may have inspired Laurel s supernatural mansion did Diana s children attend this school when she lived thereLike many others I ve had to reread the ending uite a few times and yes it is very obscure what has actually happened and how Polly realises that the only way she can save Tom from dying is to lose him but somehow she and Tom are together in the final chapter I can only surmise that we have to add together the two insights that Polly gives us 1 Tom has been using her to try to save himself from his fate and 2 Polly says she doesn t want to see him again In a way nearly everybody is using somebody else even Polly s Granny who has been trying to find out what happened to her own loved one in the past and also in a way we all use others strangers as well as friends the point being that we put others first before ourselves if we truly love them When Polly declares she doesn t want to see Tom again presumably she means the selfish Tom who tried to save himself whom we contrast with Polly who is prepared to give up her happiness to save Tom Jones lovely wordplays on Now and Here and Nowhere which we first meet on stone vases in the grounds of Hundon House are clearly a facet of Jones favourite themes of parallel worlds and existences related in this case to the different paths referenced in the ballads This may be easier to fathom than the book s title Commentaries have pointed out the significances of these two story elements fire standing for life in particular creative energy hemlock standing for death the two representing the uick the living and the dead In the finale hemlock plants are described as growing next to the pool the portal to death Jones spent some of her childhood years in Wales so she would have been familiar with the Welsh word t n which means fire Hence the hero names of the members of the uartet which of themselves seem otherwise uite arbitrary So some of the underlying symbolism the flooding in Stow the depressing rainy British weather the ripples of the Hunsdon House pool can be seen as reflecting the antithesis of the literary and creative sparks that Polly and her friends exhibit Perhaps the Tam Lin of the ballads reminded Jones of Welsh t n fire and Welsh llyn lake and from these she took her cuesThe use of musical terms in the novel might help in interpreting the ending Fire and Hemlock really is about the power of words to change reality and Jones like many another fantasy writer also uses words to subvert what passes for reality So though Eliot s Four uartets poems are implicitly referred to and Tom is part of a string uartet in Fire and Hemlock the addition of a fifth player Polly is what changes the dynamics of everything That is reflected in the divisions of the book four parts like the movements of a string uartet composition but with the addition of a tail piece the Coda an envoi to the work This coda is Polly herself and it marks the real division in her life from being the tomboy I use the word deliberately that Tom has used for his own purposes to the young woman who has shouldered the responsibilities of being an adultThe choice of words for tempi in the different parts is very deliberate Allegro vivace both words mean lively with allegro also implying briskuick this is Fire as Life Andante cantabile at a walking pace not slow really but also sung there s a lot here about the books Tom sends Polly including The Oxford Book of Ballads Allegro con fuoco with fire how explicit can Jones be The third movement traditionally a rather sedate minuet morphed into a faster playful scherzo by the 19th century but here it has morphed even Presto molto agitato final movements were invariably very fast and so this part of the book urgently rushes like a headstrong horse to its climactic scene at Hunsdon HouseA coda is something tagged on and in music it is usually the final section of a movement In this novel it stands outside the formal scheme a fifth not movement Marked scherzando its musical meaning playful refers also to Jones intention for this section it is a play on words a pun a joke this is what scherzo literally translates as in Italian She is trying to say that at the last Polly s words are a verbal sleight of hand a word magician s way of misdirecting Laurel as to her real intentions And like any good magician Jones doesn t uite reveal how she has done the trick
