The Virgin in the Garden is the first of a planned tetrology. Still Life (1986), Byatt's next novel, continues the story of the Potters. The prologue of the second novel, like that of the first, is a brief scene in which Frederica, Alexander, and Daniel gather at a London art gallery. Still Life moves from its 1980 prologue to 1953 and shows the young Potters experiencing the consequences of the choices they made and the experiences they had in the first novel. It chronicles Stephanie's ultimately tragic domestic life, Frederica's Cambridge education, and Marcus' struggle to achieve normality. Babel Tower (1996) is the third in the quartet.
