After Walter announces that he is leaving Anna to go to New York, she grinds her cigarette on his hand, figuratively attempting to castrate him, in an action for which he never forgives her. The moment of violence marks the end of the relationship; it is an act from which nothing can be recovered. A woman’s direct claiming of power will not result in a transfer of power but rather is prelude to abandonment. Looking at a bracelet that Walter had given her, Anna slides it onto her hand as if it were, in her words, a “Knuckle-duster” (148).
It is altogether fitting that it is not her baby’s death but her own that becomes Anna’s focus as she walks back out onto the London streets: “[. ] I was afraid of the people passing because I was dying; and, just because I was dying, any one of them, any minute, might stop and approach me and knock me down, or put their Voyage in the Dark 29 tongues out as far as they would go” (178). Here once more the infantile perception of abandonment is projected into an object world that is perceived as filled with potential violence.
As such, the incident is as revelatory of Anna’s tendency to find ways to deflect anxieties about hostility toward the mother, as it is of Laurie’s own strategies of self-containment.
