ARMED WITH MADNESS introduces a group of youthful but disillusioned characters who live a bohemian existence on a strange quest when an ancient chalice is found at the bottom of a well. A startling novel, ARMED WITH MADNESS introduces Scylla Tavemer, her lover Picus, her brother Felix, and their closely-knit circle of friends, all in the vigour of youth and overflowing with passionate intensity. The discovery of the chalice ignites a fury of conflicting emotion, and propels them on an adventure of mythic proportion -- a virtual re-enactment of the Grail Quest.

About Mary Butts

Mary Butts (1890-1937) grew up in Dorset. She began to write in her mid-20s and portions of her first novel, ASHE OF RINGS, appeared in 1919 in THE LITTLE REVIEW. ARMED WITH MADNESS is generally reckoned to be her masterpiece. It was followed by a sequel, DEATH OF FELICITY TAVENER. Butts lived a life of spectacular abandon in Paris throughout the 1920s and thereafter in the southwest of England.
